It's Gratitude Season

Seventeen years ago, our first book, The Shared Heart, was printed and ready for distribution. Because we were unable to find a publisher, we had the book published ourselves. Now before us lay the monumental task of trying to distribute the copies.

Our friend and mentor, Ram Dass, had edited the book for us and had written a forward. He also gave us his mailing list of 6,000 people to get us started. We designed our first flyer to send to the list and felt proud of it.
