I felt a real kindred spirit in Derek Healey. A 27 year old anthropology student at SUNY whose long term goal is to become Naturopathic doctor. Derek has been meditating since the age of 8, and has spent the last several years studying anything he can about healing. He was learning so much and feeling so encouraged from his endeavors he too wanted to share these understandings with more people.
Derek has been creating opportunities for people to be ‘love in action’ inviting people to participate in a wide range of service projects from a wild life sanctuary to a senior home. My favorite initiative of his is the “love letter project” which he will tell you more about in the video, and I hope to incorporate into the 2016 Albany Peace Project.
If Derek is an example of what the Dali Lama meant when he said, “Teach every child to meditate at the age of eight, and violence will end in one generation”. I believe it!! Derek is a stellar example of how meditation in young children can help foster open hearts of service and prolific creativity.
