Dear ones, I pray this page* supports us through these uncertain, painful, and potent times. May we take tender care of ourselves and each other as we co-create a new world with everyone’s voice and wisdom, where all our truest needs are met as we remember there is enough for us all when we share equitably. Virtual hugs, Planty Kim
