Canada DEDICATION This work is dedicated to my daughter, Sasha Lacroix for inspiring me to keep dreaming and to reach for the stars. I believe our children are profound teachers, born with innate wisdom, beauty and joyful open hearts. My child is now an adult, and I want to acknowledge the teachings, the support and the life sacrifices she has made while I traveled this journey. I also dedicate this research project to .the intuitives in my life, my Aunt, Nancy Rolston and the person I knew as "Great Granny with the Birds", or Florence O'Donahue. These two women implanted the wonder, wisdom and the mystery of the intuitive experience into my being. Lastly, I dedicate this work to the indigenous peoples of our planet, and to the dream of a peaceful integration of all peoples into a global learning community. May we learn to respect the many unique ways that each culture has for seeing the world, and through our sharing begin to experience the rich colors, the music and the joys of dancing in celebration of our diversity. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I want to acknowledge the two people that were the catalyst for me to embark upon this research journey. The first person is Mel MacLeod, my Faculty Advisor during my first residency in the MALT Program. The next person is Claire Abbott, also a MALT faculty member. My inspiration for this project arose as a result of the powerful and insightful conversations we shared and I sincerely thank you both. Next, I extend a warm thank you to my friends Victoria Scott, Will Bruce and Steven Cole, along with my connections in the Comox Valley. My appreciation goes out to my spiritual community at the NetLoft on Gabriola Island, along with a special thank you to Sylvie Montreuil who extended her hand to lift me up more than once, and offered consistent support. I would like to express my appreciation to the MALT learning community, and to the staff at Royal Roads University for their gracious support. My Major Project support crew consisted of my Supervisor, Cathy McKenzie, my sponsor, Anne Schultz and my Mentor, Donna Lumley. These three women guided my passage and I am truly grateful for their supportive energy, conversations and insight. A special note goes out to Roland Lacroix for introducing me to higher learning so many moons ago, and to those members of my family and friends who contributed to my evolution. Lastly, I want to acknowledge Joan Birch who is a pillar of strength, courage and generosity, and throughout my life demonstrated the skills and values it takes to be a leader.
