    All relationship stems from the master relationship to one self.   Giving myself compassion creates room for me to see the world and others from a place of connectedness, as one.

    I find avoiding overbooking myself a key to stay centered and present when I show up for my meetings.  Centering provided me to stay true and aware to my values.
