In Eliza’s words: “With all of my heart I believe we are all in this thing together, and the work that we each do to understand ourselves more, to learn to love and honor ourselves, each other and the earth more, and to develop compassion for all beings is the most selfless and respectable goal to undertake. Thank you for the work you are doing, keep it up; and I will keep up mine.”For more information about this instructor go to: www.ElizaMorton.com
