About Me  

I'm joining Service Space because ... I like to spread inspiration.

A good day to me is when ... When I see an inspiring video!

My hero in life is ...My fellow volunteers.

My favorite book is ...Biography of Martin Luther King, Jr.

One thing I'm grateful for is ... That there are so many people who do good in the world!

"In 1999 Liz Mitten Ryan, award-winning artist, mother of six and founder of a successful fine art publishing company in Vancouver, moved with her architect husband, and a herd of eleven horses, to Gateway 2 Ranch -- a 320-acre slice of paradise nestled in the grasslands of British Columbia. For several months their home was a simple tent in the midst of an enchanted landscape studded with lakes, wild flowers, emerald hills and whispering woods. In this vast solitude it became customary for Liz to spend her days following the herd. Communing with them she began to recognize their deep gift for connection to all of life, and how being in their presence awakened that sense of connection within her own heart. Thus began the path of her deepest calling -- to connect with animals and spirit and to share that understanding with the world as best she could. Watch the entire, award-winning film on her work: "Herd: A Spiritual Journey." " ... Watch: Herd: A Spiritual Journey
