“When Emilie asked me to carry the vision of Continuum it was one of the most moving and transformative experiences of my life. For these many years that we have been so close, we have always recognized that we have a shared vision. It will be with love and honor that I go forward in the world with our amazing teaching community, to allow the continuing unfolding of the great mystery that is Continuum.”
