In the winter of 2008, I journeyed to Peru.
Staying in the rainforest taught me many things.
This was some of the most challenging and beautiful spiritual and physical work of my life.
This experience took me from being mostly paralyzed by depression for 35 years to the removal of that depression.
Peru pulls me back as much as possible.
Being there fills me with intense creativity, and this is one of the paintings made while there.
During my time there, a vision came to me of these native elders.
That is me in the foreground.
The elder whose hand is in mine was teaching and healing me.
