                                                    Saw this quote today from Oprah (the one-named wonder who has become synonymous with reinvention, re-creation and transformation) “Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, […]

                                                                                                                                                                                                                      I have known Stephen Heilakka for at least 20 years in his various incarnations as therapist, writer, artist, musician and clergy person.  With a Masters degree in Divinity, he  is the founding coordinating minister of an interfaith community in Bucks County, […]

 Shayne Traviss describes himself as “just an authentic guy doing my best to live my ultimate life and lead the way for others.”  He seems to walk the talk in both the personal and professional  realms.   He is a team player, believing in unity rather […]
