Simply, Thank You

Many of you reading this know me, but some of you may not because I’ve mostly been a behind-the-scenes person at Atma Center.  Either way, you have made a difference in my life. 


After 12 years, I’m leaving my position at Atma Center to answer a call to ministry.  I began working part-time at Atma Center as I was transitioning out of a teaching career, and these many years later, I am once again in transition.  I am truly grateful to have been a part of the Atma Center and SATYANANDA YOGA® community at that crucial time in my life.  This community seems to understand the searching and longing of the human spirit to be better, that desire to discover why we are here and how we can best help our little corner of the world and beyond. 


I am especially grateful to Swami Atmarupa, who afforded me the flexibility to be a present parent to my daughter and to pursue my studies once I heard the call to pastoral ministry.  Without her support, I would not have been able to work a job and a half, be Mom, and complete a Master in Theology.  Thank you, Atmaji.


I also need to thank my wonderful and beautiful co-workers (human and canine!), those present and past.  My life has only been enriched by you all.  I am sure that we will continue to be friends, to be part of each other’s lives, for not to do so is just too sad.   Please know that the love, laughter, tears, talks, walks – all that we have shared – are in my heart and will bear fruit as I am present to others in ministry.


Our remarkable students have also touched my heart and prepared me to be a person of service to others.  You are an inspiration – each of you coming to Atma Center to improve your lives in some way, in many ways.  What a blessing you are to all of us.  I hope to run into many of you in the neighborhood and around town.  And whenever I see you, I will smile because of our Atma Center connection.


Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I begin a 1-year CPE Residency in Pastoral Care at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center.  I anticipate the work to be intense, challenging, but all that I could hope for.  After that, my plan is to search for a position as a hospice chaplain – at least that is what I am feeling drawn to at present.  I will, however, be listening carefully for God’s direction during my year at SVCMC and only want to go where I feel He is leading me.


So, again and simply, THANK YOU.
