A Bump in the Road…


We’ve hit a bump, but we are still on the journey….

We are sad to say that we will need to put a hold temporarily on our events.

Friday, May 24th, Norman had an ischemic stroke. It was very unexpected, of course. Through various tests, we found out his large vessels and heart are in very good shape, but he had a stricture of the tiny blood vessels in an area of his brain, not caused by a clot or bleed, but by being one of the rare persons that may get this in his age group. It has been a whirlwind the past few days. We feel blessed to have gotten over the life-risking part of this. His speech has been affected and he is unable to use the right side of his body. He is very alert and determined to do whatever he can to talk clearly enough to communicate well (especially to give Satsangs!) and be able to walk down to the yurt on his own. We are now in the process of planning for his rehabilitation and it is very unclear at this point what that is going to look like.

In about a month, we will re-evaluate if we are able to hold any events in July. We both want to be able to continue with our vision and offerings. It has become part of the fabric of our lives and very meaningful to us. Please hold us in your hearts and send healing energy to Norman when you can.

We invite you to visit, receive updates on Norman’s progress, and offer works of love and support if you would like through the following link:
