... other gifts I've been given toward my journey that have arrived in different forms: words of wisdom from one of my friends and mentors, Rob Schware (Executive Director of Give Back Yoga Foundation) reminding me how much growth there is to be had from a place of discomfort; my mother in law, Pam Kvitne, researching how to travel safely; my father in law, Dave Kvitne, giving me his sleeping bag ...
