In his words:
" At first I tried to keep these aspects of my life separate from the movement part of my life that I had spent so many years focused on but the further I delved and the more I peeled back I began to realise and be able to see what was being shown to me, that in fact to be whole we must be able to draw from all directions we have walked in"
