    Hi Mark,

    I have just moved to the Northshore of Kauai. Having recently practicing one day of silence, I was speaking to my friend Perle abt it and she mentioned your name and that you practiced for two years. I am curious if you still somehow follow this practice at all and if it changed your life. If I may be so bold to ask.

    Mahalo, Maria

    Hi I have been vegan for about 27 years now. It is a healthy, cruelty free lifestyle.
