After an absolutely wonderful event on April 28th, I have done much reflection about what comes next. It is clear to me that there is both a need and a want for what has emerged as T.R.I.B.E. The responses via e-mail and phone calls have been very moving and exciting too:) I honestly cannot overstate my gratitude for ALL of the wonderful help and support and encouragement along the way. The creation of T.R.I.B.E. has been a life long journey. I feel a great sense of gratitude and relief about having the opportunity to birth this idea that has been working me for so long.
And now I need to hear from you. I would like to know how many people feel this project is something they would like to become a part of. More specifically, what is that project? If we decide to do a real launch of T.R.I.B.E., we will need to raise funds to sustain the work of project development, find a regular and appropriate place to meet once a month, as well as develop a tribal council of leaders who really want this to come forth.
Recently, my friend Najuma Smith Pollard began a ministry in California. After leading a weekly bible study, the regular attendees of that group decided that they were ready to support her and her husband in launching a full ministry.
That is the way these projects need to happen. It can't just be that a leader has an idea. There has to be a group that feels it matters to the quality of their lives to support the work and make it happen.
Over the next two weeks, I will be listening.

I am looking forward to hearing from you. No matter what, I am thrilled that the gift I came to NYC to deliver has been given. I went into ministry in response to the death from AIDS of so many of my dear ones in the late 1980's and early 1990's, and last week I was able to bring the ministry full circle and welcome the dear ones back as ancestors. It was great.
Beyond that, I am not sure where this goes next, but I know the answer always shows itself if we let ourselves truly be still and know. Tell me what you are feeling. I will be listening and no matter what, I know we will all be blessed by having connected.
Sending love across the quantum field,
