I have considered Reba Connell my friend and teacher for more than 20 years. She is a beautiful, joyful teacher of slowing down, becoming mindful, and making our lives more harmonious. More than that, many of us see her as a profound and poetic interpreter of ancient wisdom traditions that are providing guidance for living in these perilous times.
