A year ago today, I celebrated my birthday at Norden Camp on the Tibetan Plateau. It was RIGPA ARTS' last retreat of the season and I was (and still am) filled with so much gratitude for the team at Norden and the members of our community who made each retreat so memorable. I still dream of the mountains and look forward to our return.

This full moon birthday has me filled with appreciation for all that has unfolded within this past year and deep gratitude to all of you who have been a part of it. I would like to take this opportunity to celebrate some of those memorable moments.

PROTECT - Consider a gift

In honor of Indigenous Peoples' Day (October 14th), I'm asking for donations to the Native American Rights Fund. I've chosen this nonprofit as I believe the work they do is vital to help preserve, protect, support, assert and defend the most important rights of Native Americans and their tribes. I hope you will consider contributing as a way to honor and respect the indigenous peoples of this land. Anything you can contribute will be greatly appreciated and received as a gift from your heart.

NARF's practice is concentrated in five areas: preserve tribal existence; protect tribal natural resources; promote Native American human rights; hold governments accountable to Native Americans; and develop Indian law and educate the public about Indian rights, laws, and issues.

You can donate through my Facebook birthday fundraiser or via their website ( directly.

Thank you..
