Susan Warrow: Having my first Human Awareness Institute weekend workshop in 2002, a couple years after divorce, I found a place of recovery from the verbal and mental abuse of my greater than 20-year relationship. Becoming aware of choice, including the choice of how to love myself, was life changing.
As a Family Chief in my tribe, the Wyandot of Anderdon, I have the perspective of my people striving to recover their culture after centuries of physical and cultural genocide. As an occupational therapist with special needs children, I find joy in fostering independence. Through these two positions, I have acquired skills of leadership, database management, and exposure to people of different abilities, cultures, income levels and ages.
Over the years, I have felt held by my HAI Midwest community through financial hardship, life threatening illness, depression and the joy of becoming a grandmother. The importance of community and sharing the possibilities of living joyfully in love, have transformed my life into one of service to HAI Midwest. I am proud to be part of the HAI Midwest Producer Group.
