How I support my community: From a foundation that keeps us grounded and the nutrients that helps us flourish, I believe the essential character of our minds and bodies mirror that of Mother Nature and wisdom passed down from our ancestors. This is one of the reasons that Sol of Life provides a unique place to relax, rejuvenate and experience the wonders of ancient crystalline salt in our Himalayan Salt Cave, and providing herbs of the highest quality that originate in harmony with the environment; organically grown, ethically wildcrafted and sustainably harvested.

Favorite inspirational quote: “Man is but a foundling in the cosmos, abandoned by the forces that created him.” ~ Carl Becker

What I am doing to be the change I want to see in the world: Living by example, assisting in restoring balance and harmony through what has already been provided by Mother Earth, while inspiring others to follow their dreams.

After 20-plus years of Sol of Life being my dream, I made it my reality, acknowledging and honoring that we are all part of a larger reality. Regardless of how I got here, my example of living my dream, following my heart and relinquishing all fears and doubts serves as a “You can do it!” beacon for others who are pursuing their dreams.
