My name is Dawn Griffin and in 2014 I published a visionary fiction called, We Came Here to Play. It describes the future world we are intended to inhabit. It is a world free of fear, separation and the sense of not enough. The print and e-book is available on Amazon.com. You can also listen to me reading the book for free on New Earth Story Time.
At the center of this thriving community is something very similar to the Reset Center. It is my vision to draw together those ready to step into this fuller potential and this site describes some of the key components.
A lifelong passion has been exploring pathways to physical health and expanded human potential. The thesis I wrote for my degree in environmental policy and planning from the University of California, Santa Cruz, was entitled: Returning Home – Reflections on My Quest for Community. The premise being that all of the issues we face have to do with forgetting what it means to be in relationship on all levels. I also produced a multi-image show for a conference on spirituality and the environment held in Boulder, Colorado. It highlighted the issues we face and the solutions being created to address them. The show, titled On Wings of a Dream was later funded and put on video.
I also spent time on Niue, a small coral atoll in the South Pacific, to explore a proposal for creating an Eco-village and learning center incorporating their traditional knowledge and traveled across Siberia, to participate in cross-cultural dialogues with women.
I am a quantum biofeedback practitioner and have trained in a variety of modalities for working with limiting patterns. Those include: Thought Field Therapy, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Brain Gym, Body Talk, Psych-K, Social Artistry with Dr. Jean Houston and Flow Mastery.
In 2019, I began a personal quest that took me to the Amazon rain forest to do a plant medicine retreat with a Shipibo shaman and to meet the "Tree of Light and Life"--Noya Rao. My post-retreat integration awakened a memory of an agreement I had made prior to coming here that had to do with the water. That evolved into being gifted a medicine drum from elder Hawai'ian women on the Big Island of Hawai'i as a part of a project called, 1,000 Hummingbirds Women's Water Project. The medicine drum has carried the prayers of all of these women to the convergence of rivers in the heart of the U.S.
Pre-COVID I was a member of an improv comedy group, utilizing the tools of that craft for creating a deeper sense of community, play and reawakening imagination.
