Rachel Davey, Executive Director of The Haven, BC, Canada, hosted the 2014 Gathering. In her transition from ten years in the ED role she didn’t feel it was appropriate to ask The Haven Board to fund her participation this year, however, still felt called to join us. We were keen to welcome her presence, wisdom and experience and suggested she reach out to one of our committed donors for support.
Thank you to Paul O’Brien of the Divination Foundation for your generous donation that enabled Rachel to join us.
Paul wrote to Rachel saying, “You are most welcome … we are very lucky to retain your involvement in the CG! When I understood that you are helping with the Centers Gathering, and you asked me, I knew it must be important for you to be there …I’m glad I could help because, even though I couldn’t make this conference, this movement of “centers of light” is very important — to me and the world!”
After the Gathering Rachel shared, “I am just back from Hawaii, and want you to know how much it meant to me to be there. As ever the week was a rich experience of sharing, learning and having fun. And it was in Hawaii, which made it all the more special. I would not have been able to go without your generous support, so THANK YOU so very much”.
