the jewels of truth they offer.
With much gratitude and appreciation for your beautiful heart, soul and being which is truly a gift to anyone that has the great good fortune to be touched by your words, your wisdom and your

Oops, sorry. Here is Lindsay's contact info:

Hi Verena. I hope you had a good Summer.
A friend of mine is in Switzerland and Germany now for a few weeks. She is a documentary film-maker. She is interviewing people who are on spiritual journeys. Please let me know if you might be
interested in sharing your journey (or parts of it) for this film. If so, I will put you in contact with my friend Lindsay Kent of "Krenshaw Films." Or.. feel free to contact her directly. She is in
München right now and will be driving through to Berlin soon. You live in Kassel, correct? Tell her that you are virtual meditation buddies with me, John Saul. She will be happy to chat with you. She
does great work and is super sensitive and mindful. Schöne Grüße. John
mine is: email@example.com

Verena, I'm here to say a heartfelt thank you for the devotion you show in choosing and posting quotes every day on Insight Timer. They have been part of my day for over a year now (since Rumi!) and
it's time to say thanks. Your choices resonate so strongly with my own life that I know we are connected. And of course that's the point! Universal connection :) Deep gratitude and much love to you

Just wanted to say that I love and appreciate your website and group on insight timer.
Do you have any other social media platforms like InstaGram?

OMG. What an amazing find! I cried and cried as I read your website. My journey has been really difficult and it feels so connecting to see someone who has traversed the same canyons. It is so
different than the narrative around me that I almost feel like I am making all this up - but your website helps confirm me in this journey. It IS real and it really was as bad as it seems. My pain is
not insanity, but the opposite. In the past months, I have said NO to my parents and YES to my inner heart child. For years, I have also deeply lived the false forgiveness you spoke of. Please
continue to share; it's a deep blessing to me.

Verena, I am filled with an overwhelming YES when I connect with your words and your knowing. I am with you dear sister soul. Thank you for staying the path and being a way-shower for the

I really enjoy your quotes on Insight Timer, and your writing on this Website is profound. Thank you for being who you are! I feel like you are part of my tribe.

Verena - Just thought I'd share that I will be co-facilitating a retreat this weekend with the Center For Courage and Renewal in Kansas. We have what we call "Grace Notes" hanging all around the
room. We change them out daily. These "notes" are quotes and wisdoms from all kinds of amazing people. You helped me pull together so many new and precious inspirations from the InsightTimer group.
Am enjoying looking up each person and being introduced to a treasure trove of ordinary people putting out their essence into the world. Thank you for your daily discipline to share. - la

A thoughtful meaningful perspective that resonates, affirms and frees the fundamental element of being ourselve. One self. Beautiful.

I came here because you left the Rumi group. Thank for all the quotes you have shared and thank you for your courage to stand up to what you believe in.

So pleased to find this space for your expression. I too was one of you admirers in the Rumi group and am thrilled that I will continue to hear your voice. namo, namaha.

I was with you in the Rumi group for the last 1,5 year. I am honered you are standing up for all those believes and values that make our society human. I wonder how it would be possible to be
spiritual and closing your eyes for reality. Please let go your disappointment, because they who yelled at you they don't understand. Once everybody has to choose his stand. You are are truly

Verena, Hello. It seems I joined the Rumi group on the day you chose to leave! From what you wrote today and from what others have written about you departure it is my loss to have missed your
contribution there. On the other hand, can I loose what I never held? Interestingly I think yes I can. And, I feel others who don't know you at all will miss you and not know they miss you. My only
other though is that combined, those who know you and miss you there and those who do not know you and miss you ought not to be put there. Who are you turning over the space you held there to? Are
you not abdicating your position of influence to the ones who oppose your views? The light you hold up shines all around. I don't put a picture up of myself or of any thing. I don't know, perhaps a
good work of art would be suitable for the space of transformation or transcendence or self realization or unity consciousness. What is hat space we are there for? But, anyway, all images evoke some
response in everyone who sees it. It is a world of contrasts.
I'm glad I found you here. I'll read your musing and be better
for it I feel. Please, consider your calling not your fear or anger. There are not enough light workers yet. Thanks Dear One!
Uzma (Friday, 03 February 2017 14:45)

Glad to find your lion heart here.

Verena - I have been in Rumi group with you for two years on insight timer. Followed most recent exchange.
My field is community organizing and social change has been my focus for 25 years. Came to meditation 4 years ago and have come home to myself through this avenue. Have been so troubled by the
meditation community ignoring the things going on around us. It hit me most after Ferguson murder of Freddie Grey...the continuation and acceleration of black lives lost.
A suggestion, what if there was a group started that shares Rumi but has clarity that these two worlds cannot be separated and that we must move from the Heart and into action? Have no idea what this
looks like, but wanted to contact you both with a nudge to think about this and to thank you so much for your presence in my life through the Rumi group.
Your decision is a good one...awakening comes in many forms and speaking the truth from your heart the way you did is a most terrible and wonderful swift sword.
Love to you...firstname.lastname@example.org
