I was honored to be asked by Bioneers to write about my experience with their work; how it has impacted my life and why I have contributed time and money to Bioneers since 1998.

When I sat down to respond, I found the experience of writing to be a valuable synthesis; it was an opportunity to reflect on the fourteen years of gifts I have received from the Bioneers Conference and community, and how participation has impacted me spiritually, as well as psychologically, professionally and emotionally.

Here are two excerpts from the “Donor Spotlight“:

Over many years of attending the conference, I have constantly looked for patterns and insights into the questions: Why are we still collectively on a doomsday track, even while we have so many brilliant, deeply caring, willing people working every day for a different, more sustainable future?  Why do we continue to head in the wrong direction while most people actually want a better world…? 

I am in an extremely advantageous position, having grown up in Northern California, having had access to primary and continuing education, and having been enabled to attend the Bioneers conference over many years, as well as having been exposed to a great diversity of profound thinkers and spiritual teachers, in person and through media.  While Bioneers has shaped choices I have made in my life, and in many ways my very personality, the bigger question for me is, what will I do now that I have received so much?  What will I give back?  More and more the answer to that question is to simply be.  The more I am, the more possibilities I see.
