Earth Victory, Proclamation of Wisdom August 27, 2014
On the steps at the entryway of a Buddhist shrine, she taught us a song. I believe it was a a song that a tribe of people sang as they were uprooted and herded away from their homeland. It was a beautiful song of call and response between the men and women. I have forgotten it now. I would return if she were there, to learn it again.

OMG! So genuine, so wise, so inspiring! With every talk, Acharya Moore continually touched my heart with her compassionate authentic presence. I am inspired by her courage to speak with a raw and tender heart. Thank-you for your amazing teachings, and for showing me the strength that arises when I truly connect with what feels vulnerable.
