"When I teach I let go as much as possible so I may be an openchannel for creative energy to pass through. Every student is everyone's teacher so I plug my heart into everyone and do my best to translate the teachings which present themselves in the moment. I believe it’s not all up to me. Like any recipe, there must be just the right amount of all the ingredients to produce epic flavor. When I teach I mix my given ingredients well with all other unpredictable and delicious ingredients to co-create with the playful universe and be a part of something grand. I never know what is going to happen. And if I attempt to know too much, something is lost. I love life and food in raw true form.Much fear has brought me to where I am, so I encourage all sides ofeveryone to be welcomed, honored and faced. For fears, if faced, are like really good manure for the soul.I am SO grateful to all my teachers, especially Steve Merkley, Paige Faraci, Chris Chavez and Elena Brower."
