CHOICES and VOICES project Sponsored by Kai-Zen Solutions LLC
For the Highest Good of All, Bringing Choice, Empowering Voice and Healing from Relational and Physical Trauma. May you compassionately consider how to nurture your soul and to heal from the inside out. This in turn will guide you through an exploration of how to bring about an authentic culture within yourself that then also touches the community of people around you. Living out a legacy of intentional, healing mindfulness for a deeply fulfilling life and for the well being of all.
The cycle of victim to perpetrator will only repeat unless there is some light and love that illuminates the darkness of fear and control…Leadership roles can be susceptible to this especially. It’s time to identify mindful choices in our daily lives to unpack past trauma to bring true healing and restoration.
Dedicated to the Northern Shore of Lake Superior Community to embrace a spirit of compassion that creates hope not only to the vulnerable who have been exploited, but also to those who have wielded their power, yet know not love. This beautiful wilderness can’t hide our problems that travel with us … it is time to de-activate our fears that limit us and see the sacredness in each other.
