Start Close In
This is the title of David Whyte’s poem. Start Close In. That’s what we did in creating our centre. We started close in with long time friends and colleagues. With our own hearts and minds. With our own personal practice of mindfulness, meditation, healing, and growth. With a sincere desire to be of service and contribute to a more compassionate world.
