I first read Dan's books on a sunny rooftop in Montecito over 14 yrs ago. I was about to start on many years of searching for myself...and for healing. Along the way, i found that the teacher we need the most to listen to ....is ourselves. And the Path is a path with a small p, and is unique for each of us. Dan is humble enough to know this, and kind enough to share with us. I am glad he and many others are along the way we all follow to help us ....remember.
