February Update


It's time.

I've taken the last couple of months to do some visioning and open to guidance around a big vision that's been coming through. You see, there's something I've been called to do for a long time. And by "do" I also mean "allow and assist to come through".


This idea is not uniquely mine at it's core. Sure, I'm going to give it my personal blend of love and spice AND it's something I've heard other kindred souls wish for and dream about for decades. However after all this time, it's still a distant dream.

Well, it no longer feels distant to me.


After last month's deep dive, I've come out feeling CLEAR and READY to take the lead and make it so. With a lot of help and support from others of course! Plus, I'm aware that in addition to the "make it so" energy (Yang) there is an equal and perhaps even more important energy of "welcoming it in to being" (Yin) that will be needed every step of the way.

Will you join me right now it setting that tone? Let's welcome in the thing that's coming...even before it's here. Imagine a special place in the Santa Cruz Mountains where people experience what's most important in life... community, family, intimacy with self and other, well-being, service, creative expression, embodiment, and communion with the natural world.

Even though you don't have any real details at this point, will you begin to imagine such a place within half an hour of downtown Santa Cruz?


"Well, Daniel, what exactly is this place?" you may be wondering. That's totally understandable. At this point I don't want to reveal more until I've got a solid way of sharing a clear picture of the vision with you. Next month that should be ready. Until then know that a special place that will be home to many people in many different ways is on it's way.

Together we will make it so and welcome it in.


about me

I live in Santa Cruz, California and am grateful every day for the gift of life. I am passionate about creative expression and I am devoted to building communities that balance personal freedom with care for the whole. My love of freeform conscious dance nourishes me daily and inspires me to share the gift of music, dance, and conscious touch wherever it is wanted or needed. My community, family, friends, and loved ones provide the perfect blend of belonging and freedom. I know my purpose and how I am needed.  I know that those who care about me want only one thing from give them my authentic self.


Success! Message received.
