With Akushi there were several moments when I paused to appreciate her raw wisdom, and delightful phrases of love and acceptance, I had the joy of being with her in person, and gazing into her eyes. I’m not sure how she refers to people who come to her for guidance. Are they patients? Students? Disciples? I sat with her this morning, listened to her wisdom, her gentle prodding, her incisive wit, her stories. There was never a question in my jaded mind that could withstand the truth and beauty emanating from her eyes. Her beauty, her wisdom come from a very deep place.
