KOL Tell us about a turning point in your life.
Erin I recall the moment that questions became more important than answers. Questions became the openings, and the answers were as solid as closed doors.
KOL What do you love about teaching?
Erin I love teaching from my curiosity, from a place of holding and honoring questions, from a transparent place on my own spiritual journey, from a beginner’s mind. I love to be in my own learning curve that keeps me fresh and humble in my teaching, playing on the edge of what I know, in the realm of invention where the whole group is co-authoring the experience.
KOL What are you passionate about right now?
Erin Sustainable human cultures that are inclusive and co-authored. I have been studying the design principles of permaculture, the art of mentoring, and developmental movement. I am fascinated by asking what it means to be human, what is in our nature, and what we truly need to thrive.
KOL What do you do in your downtime?
Erin I love to study nature, whether I’m tending my wild garden or talking a walk, watching my own thoughts or observing the human nature around me. And I love, love, love to dance!
