In deepest gratitude to all of my teachers

My beloved guides of both human and nonhuman realms

It is your transmission that has awakened my highest potential

And your methods who have challenged me to grow beyond what I ever dreamed possible

Thank you for your everlasting encouragement and support

You who walk the earth, and you who have already passed through the veil, or have always lived beyond it,

How brilliantly your wisdom, healing, and presence live through me

You have blessed my path

You have blessed my work

And all who are blessed by this offering

Are truly blessed

By you

In Deepest Gratitude,

                                     Shannon Ryan
