"The universe is a psychic-spiritual as well as a physical-material reality from its beginning... We are, by definition, that being in whom the universe reflects on and celebrates itself in conscious self-awareness. We are the universe in its self-awareness phase. In and through this universe-identity we have our identity with that numinous mystery whence all things emerge into being."

--Thomas Berry (1987)

what people are saying about drew

"Drew was so down to earth. He reached all the people here at the school. We had such a mix of audience and he reached them all--parents, teachers, clinicians, support staff and students of many ages...I think every single person went away with something. What a fabulous speaker! I loved it! It was so great that Drew was able to give something to everyone."
- Sonia McDonald, Youth Talk and the Canadian Mental Health Association
