Board of Directors – Update

We are fortunate to welcome two new board members for the Cuyamungue Institute.

Alan I would be honored if the board of the Cuyamungue Institute would accept me as a board member. I recently returned from a workshop with Paul and Laura and experienced firsthand the power and benefits of the postures and practices. I intentionally did no advance reading so as to not intellectually bias my journey. Needless to say what I experienced was very profound and life changing, and there was no way that I could have just “imagined” the outcome. Based on my experience, and confirmed by that of my fellow participants, I have become a true believer of the practices.

I could choose to pursue the teachings on my own for my own benefit; however I have always felt a strong desire to share with others. When I met Laura and Paul almost 20 years ago I was lucky enough to appear on Laura’s radio show on several occasions to share my understanding of Sacred Ecology. Since then I have been fortunate to have a number of experiences with Paul and Laura, and benefit from their uncanny ability to connect people, practices, and wisdom for the benefit of all.

Not being an expert on the postures, I look forward to working with and learning from the other board members and from my continuing research. The toolbox that I bring contains a degree in engineering and over 35 years of work experience. For the last 19 years, my wife and I have successfully provided environmental consulting services to the seafood processing industry in the Pacific Northwest. As a two person shop, we are accustomed to having to be skilled in many disciplines.
