There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist.... It is your business to... stay open and aware to the urges that motivate you.

A Client Story:
The Reluctant Dancer
When her mother died, a dancer left performing at 24 for the relative safety of retail management and then motherhood. At 40, she returned to dance, only to find it no longer held the appeal it once had.
By exploring the ways she was changing and by blending the new with the old, she found her niche as a foundation executive bringing arts groups to life.
