I've met the most amazing people on Facebook and traveling. Many have asked when I'm coming to their area to speak. For me it's never just been about speaking. It's also about listening and sharing. I've learned and healed more from all of you than many will ever understand. It is In this spirit that I'll be hitting the road soon starting a series of get together s in areas maybe right around you. As long as my body is able. As long as there is breath in my lungs...there will be fire in my heart. I have can cancelled all of my upcoming public appearances for this endeavor. I surrender to the path before me. Illuminated by countless souls to numerous to mention and too precious to forget. This will be my final public tour....intimate and imperfect....just like me. Many have suggested that I just stay home and rest. My health is too frail. I should be in hopsice. etc etc etc Well, like most of my life I will tell you this. I'm more afraid of not making a difference than I am about dying or getting hurt. There is something important I am supposed to do. So today begins a new chapter.
We are calling it " A Talk in the Park" series. I will be visiting all the national parks I can as well as local parks to have a town hall type discussion with anyone wishing to share some time together. We don't have to have a plan or big crowds. I'd like it to be intimate and personal but the more the merrier. Most of the get together will be at sunset. Bring a blanket or something comfy.

It's amazing what spending time in a loving environment can do. Come join me in the park. No hassles or expectations. No fanfare or crowds. Just us. Sharing a moment in person. I look forward to seeing you all for those hugs we always promised.
I get a ton of requests to speak at various conferences and seminars. Frankly the more popular the story becomes the less personal the moments I spend with others. This was not the idea. I am grateful to reach more people not with just the book, but the many messages inside the book. But one thing is clear about me. If you find inspiration in any form from what I write, say or how I live. You wait till we spend time together in person. I cant promise you I can heal you, or answer all of your questions. But i can promise you my love and hope. With that we can do anything.
Time is fleeting for all of us. My time is no different than yours other than the fact that mine is probably closer. I want to spend as much time as I can meeting with as many who are willing. To share ideas and truths. To talk of memories and important moments and how they have shaped us. I don't want to speak to you...I want to feel you. So for my remaining days I will travel. I will meet everyone I can and I will write about it all. Eventually we will publish the travel tales and all who I meet. I want to especially meet those trying to do some good in the world. I wanna meet the selfless, the helpers, the caregivers and nurturers of the world. I want to hold them all and just say "thank you." I hope some of you will allow me the time to feature you in this blog. To help you connect by lifting you up. My gift, my truest gift in this world is presence. It is here that I share more, do more, and feel more. It is the inexplicable mirror of your energy. So whats in it for you some might ask? Its nothing fancy or elaborate. Its just a moment of time stolen all for you. But I will promise you this to be true. neither of us will be the same after we meet. That is my wish. I hope you'll join me.
Please share this around. I'll need help along the way. Like we all do. Just friendship and love. I'm grateful for all of you in my life. This is my thank you for all the great energy and inspiration you all give me daily. There's isn't a lot I can do with the time of my life. But there's a great deal I can do with the depth of it. See you soon

#Indiana June 27We have added a date and location. We couldn't resist the invitation from Reverend Rhonda Schniele in Valparaiso Indiana.
June 27 Rhonda and Mike have gragiously insisted on hosting the event at there large home complete with bonfire at sunset. I have known about this for a few days but honestly it's been a bit overwhelming emotionally for me to see someone stand up and insist on being a part. There are things I havent shared about this journey. It is a bit shocking. But I find more and more courage with folks like this along the path.
You see....I AM NOT A HERO-But I AM SURROUNDED BY THEM !!!!
Greetings Friends and Family
Time: 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Location: Private Residence - Mr and Mrs. Mike Schienle Valparaiso, Indiana.
RSVP with Reverend Rhonda via Facebook
