"It is said that we each have a unique, divine purpose, a note of the soul that we alone can play. And this unique note can only be played in this world, in time and space, in the limited world of forms. In the inner worlds that stretch beyond the horizon there is other music, beautiful celestial sounds. But here, in this world, we each have a calling and a purpose, and it seems much of life’s journey is to try to live this purpose, play this note. It is the greatest contribution we can make."

- Llewellyn Vaughan Lee


Roberta certainly embraced her "note" and her unique purpose, providing for so many to have the time, space and inspiration to explore their own divine purpose and to feel the support of a caring community through all the passages of life.

Now, Roberta is hearing that celestial symphony; imagine... the beautiful sounds surrounding her now are the whispers of the souls she has touched and nourished.
