From a Tribe of Love Warriors
The Ripple Project
Each week, I am blessed to spend time with a global crowd through Insight Timer where I offer about 1.5 hours of free teaching. In exchange, this tribe donates money where I then select an organization doing good work in the world where we can donate the money towards. This is the highlight of my week to be able to continue the ripple this energy carries.
If you would like to donate to our mission, please click the button below. All money goes directly to the organization we have chosen for the current week.

p:ear builds positive relationships with homeless youth through education, art and recreation to affirm personal worth and create more meaningful and healthier lives.
We admire every homeless youth’s intelligence and capacity for humor and love in the face of great adversity.
On any given day in Portland, there are hundreds of homeless youth on the street. For the individuals affected, homelessness is personally devastating. For our community, the financial and opportunity costs are infinite. Together, we can create solutions. We can effect lasting, systemic change.
At p:ear, our work starts with the realities of today. It ends when young people find and embrace tomorrow. Our beauty—our core essence—is in everything in between. It’s in the kids, their daily experience, their struggles, and triumphs. It’s in their journey.
We believe that together, we can change lives.
We know it’s possible. How? Our p:ear youth show us every day. At p:ear, we meet today’s needs. We offer love, build trust, and create hope. And then, through mentorship and experience, we support youth on their journey to tomorrow.
