- Giving back to Gaiatree, UPDATE: After so many years here, and being such a bright light in our spiritual community, Gaiatree finally did receive a green card and she now is visiting her family in the UK. On July 6th she sent us an update. She is up in Sheffield with her brother, which is "lovely except that my mum's health had a setback as soon I left ... I guess you could say I'm mostly having a good time up here ...[but] I have no idea what I am going to do long term ... I trust that it will unfold with the usual Divine Grace but it is excruciating and painfully sad at times". Read the update and please consider a generous donation to the crowd-fund which has been created to cover her rent etc during her absence. Click to go there.
