Tom Walsh: A Story Faith

February 12

After witnessing his first miracle at a young age, Tom has been on a lifelong quest of understanding, healing and faith. Blessed with the entrepreneurial spirit, Tom started a small business in his 20s that allowed him the abundance and flexibility to follow his heart’s passion into his mature years. As a father, husband, and business owner, one thing has remained constant throughout Tom’s life: his deep love of being of service to others. When Tom is not practicing Qigong or Tai Chi he is running his small Carpet and Upholstery business, Walsh's Chem Dry.

Peter Meyer: A Story of Trust

February 19

Since his early days, Peter has been on a quest for meaning. Even as a young boy, he’d ask, “what are we doing here beyond bare survival?” He may have appeared to others as a ‘spacey’ or ‘dreamy’ kid, but in retrospect instead he was a budding philosopher, spiritual seeker, and writer. Since then, he has continued to use more and more probing questions as a gateway to grace, adding substance and purpose to his life experiences: “What do I want to do with my life that feels important? How do I design a life that is busy with day to day necessities and mechanics, that still elevates, prioritizes and implements my deepest values? These types of queries have led him on a series of life changing travels, studies, and experiences, both external and internal. From taking part in meditation retreats, fire ceremonies, drumming circles, and creative writing groups, Peter has been answering the calls for adventure, fun, and meaning.

Since Faith and Trust may feel like an elusive 'holy grail’ to most of us, Peter instead focuses on the journey towards that light, towards that way of being, towards a feeling of ease in the world. It’s the movement in a positive direction that feels energizing, grounding, and rewarding.

Peter currently lives near Burlington, Vermont with his family, writing, continuing his Mediation practice, and providing Life Coaching focusing on clients who want to identify and implement their most important core values and design their lives accordingly through a laser focused process of inquiry and courageous personal adventure.

Richard Obernesser: A Story of Relationships

February 19

Richard is a certified professional coach (CTI) and former executive leader in several industries. He provides consulting and coaching for individuals and couples. He continues to transition from a life of certainty and confidence to one of vulnerability and humility. The adversity of a wounded spirit brought him to his knees and opened doors for growth for himself and others. Our gifts are closest to the wounds and Richard helps others to accept, assimilate and grow.

Richard has been married to his wife Karla for 34 years and they are honored to be the parents of two daughters and two sons. They are C0-founders of WeDO Relationships. Their mission is to foster life-giving relationships that withstand adversity. You can hear Karla and Richard as they discuss emotional fitness and connection on their podcast (WeDO Relationships – The Podcast) available on your favorite streaming service. They have developed self-directed relationship development programs which are readily accessible on their website and have led retreats for 25 years across the West Coast.
