Congratulations Rayjon on your 25th Year Anniversary!
Rayjon has a magical community spirit that still inspires me today. This ever-expanding team has been a part of my life, in one way, shape or form, since my 1993 awareness trip to the DR. That first trip sparked a deep healing within, a heart-opening that planted the seeds of a new beginning. I can recall afterwards touching the edges of desire in wanting to commit to global service. And as Goethe says, once the commitment is made, destiny conspires with us to support and realize it.
Who would have known back then that my destiny line includes working with the United Nations. For the last several years, I have been facilitating empowerment workshops for staff. This year, I will move to Senegal to support climate change adaptability throughout Africa by using the vehicle of leadership transformation. I am fascinated with bridging the micro-level of personal empowerment to the macro-level of social change.
Rayjon gave me a forum to explore these questions and others related to sustainable development. I feel waves of gratitude in having had the support of like-minded, passionate people within the Rayjon circle. These conversations helped cultivate my readiness for this journey. From my Rayjon experience, I take with me lessons I learned in courage, humility and values-based leadership.
What is the new horizon within Rayjon that wants to be seen? Whatever unfolds in the next 25 years, I celebrate the possibilities that are at your doorstep. May your success continue to awaken the best in the human spirit!
Best wishes and much love,
New York, NY
