One Response to “Wren’s C.V.”

  1. Kia Ora Wren from New Zealand,

    I recognized Freeland Maryland from your ad on Green Singles as having to be Heathcote. You just replied to my ad on greensingles. I am in New Zealand but know heathcote well as a former lover lived there for years as well as my friends Jeff and Linda Riach the founders of Oakworks Massage tables who I helped grow that company from 3 employees to a huge factory. In any case I admire your many blessings and would love to be in touch.

    I wonder how the Brilliant Contact Community is progressing with Aquiring their Land. I have a 7 bedroom house in Hawaii I would be interested in selling (if I could find a buyer) or converting to a structure similar to Heathcote with shared ownership of the home. I would need some guidance in converting the home to community ownership and financing. If you have or can get any of the formal legal structures from Heathcote or Brilliant Contact emailed to me I would be most appreciative and may be able to contribute. I am also grateful for all the lovely and amazing work you are doing on your blog. If you ever get to New Zealand please look me up. I would also love to hear how the Poly conference goes at Harbin. I visited there years ago as well. I have studied and taught tantra from several traditions.

    Love and Blessings,

    David
