Why you are interested in spirituality? I have always sensed that there is more than the 5 senses can pick up. I have had several different stages where my intuition grew and synchronistic experiences abounded. They were and are exciting and affirming. I feel called to share my own personal wisdom accrued from years of living, sometimes well and sometimes not so well, and a universal wisdom that moves through me. I share that essence in writing, speaking and in art. I have been drawn to learn from many masters and recognize the Truth by its resonance. In the Cherokee nation one becomes an adult by the age of 52 (because we are so complex) and then has a responsibility to share the wisdom with the village. I delight in the Spiritual Awakening, the conscious evolution of consciousness and the part we can choose to play in it.

Your favorite quote: To not risk anything is to risk everything. Dorothy Baldwin Satten, Ph.D. Your favorite web sites: mine: http://www.authenticityseries.com/, http://www.zaadz.com/, http://www.gaia.com/, http://www.andrewcohen.org/
Your hero? Buddha, Thich Nhat Hanh, Dalai Lama
A spiritual lesson you hope to learn?
1. How to be deeply in a spiritual partnership and able to set aside my ego long enough to be a healing force for my loved one.
2. Unity consciousness.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?" I feel very spiritually connected to the practitioners that take my classes and attend my workshops and retreats. I feel spiritually connected at most times and it is especially profound and tender in nature: on the lake in my kayak, walking mindfully through the woods, and painting the essence of a flower.

Dava, I don't know if you would be interested in my new management book titled Wingtips with Spurs: Cowboy Wisdom for Today’s Business Leaders. As it is a business related book, my publisher, Multi Media Publications asked that I remove the spiritually themed chapter. I refused and they relented and published the book anyway. While the book which was only released 3weeks ago, has been selling okay, the only negative comments I have recieved concern the "spiritually connected" chapter. Atheist don't like it for the obvious reasons and mainstream protestants seem to have a problem with the chapter also. Anyway, I thought you and your readers might be interested to know that a management book of this sort is out in the market. Michael L. Gooch. www.michaellgooch.com
