Rest in Peace Graeme. Graeme passed away August 7, 2014.
I have known Michael Ryce for years, taken his courses and lectures, visited HeartLand, and very much appreciated his book, “Why Is This Happening To Me Again?!”. I guess it worked on my conciseness for a while, but one day I was taking a bath and got the compelling idea that this book needed an audio version and I had to play the part of Richard. Thankfully Michael is used to such divine “ twixes ” and was in my makeshift “Kitchen” recording studio three weeks later. In three days we recorded the raw version and I thought “this will see the light of day soon.” Little did I know that the editing process seemed to want several years to finish, and so here we are with the final product in your hand.

Playing Richard seemed to be the thing that got me to the point that I “got” it. After finishing, I had both physical and spiritual changes both profound and rewarding. My life has been blessed because of it. So as you listen please remember that while I am acting, I really did pay attention. I am glad to contribute this effort to you all, and as such, I have asked that all my compensation be donated to the work. Do your part as well, share this work, and invite others to participate. Collectively we can heal the planet as we heal ourselves.
