I humbly and respectively show my gratitude for my teachers who I have studied under and worked with over these last 25 years. I have been so honoured to learn and remember the Wisdom Teachings with Vern(Gitxsan) and Mumsie from Lower Stl'atl'lmx nation where they live on the land and honour the sacred way by holding many ceremonies and welcoming many to their home to share the medicine. I am so grateful to call them my family.
We will say goodbye to Vern this week, as he has transitioned to be with the Great Spirit to help us from above and continue to guide us as we journey on this Earth walk. Vern was a gentle soul and loved to joke and laugh, his approach to teaching was so organic and easy. He was a big Spirit and a bright light for this world and his presents will be missed, but his ripples will last forever and will continue to be shared by all who knew him and had the privilege to sit in Sweat lodge ceremony with him.
We will gather to celebrate his life and love that he shared with all he came in contact with. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers. WE love you Vern and Mumsie.
Love always and forever,
