“I don’t think I’ve ever seen such grief in my life…

…the people, because they were inspired by the Wheel, have found joy, and meaning and satisfaction, when there was nothing…there’s this zest for life when a lot of these people were suicidal. It’s hard to relate how utterly transformative it was.”

“The youth describe it as if they’ve entered into a new world… as though they were a kingfisher diving into the water.”

Listen to Andy Miller’s truly inspiring telling of supporting a community dealing with loss, and them finding hope.
