Greetings from Bali and a BIG thank you

Greetings from beautiful Bali,
It's been some time since I've written a personal blog post for Doze... It's almost been 4 months since I moved myself to Bali, Indonesia and I am just looking through photos from yesterday's Doze Day, reflecting upon the Doze journey.
Along with a crew of awesome people in Vancouver, we founded Doze as a platform to bring the community together to engage in selfless service. It truly warms my heart to see that the spirit of Doze in Vancouver continues on even as I am residing in Bali and cofounder Tiffany in Cape Town, South Africa. What a blessing to have such a dedicated team to continue our monthly volunteer events. This past Saturday our collaboration with Surfrider Foundation brought more than 50 people out to Vancouver beaches to clean the rubbage off our shores. I am writing to say thank you and update Doze family and friends of my whereabouts.
It was with passion that Doze started. A group of beautiful individuals coming together with a shared vision to make the world a better place. Our motto:
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
Today I am living in Bali and counting my blessings every day. Beyond grateful for the Doze team that has developed and for the work that continues back "home"; Megan, Ivy and Jonny thanks for being awesome. I am in Bali furthering my study of yoga and engaged in a Life that is best suited for my own evolution. Stay tuned as we launch Doze Days in Bali in collaboration with the Gandhi Ashram in Candidasa (more to come as things develop). My heart continues in the same direction, questioning the purpose of life and the various avenues to self-realization; Selfless service being one of these paths. As Gandhi said: "Find yourself in the service of others." Surrounded by the beautiful Hindu culture, I am reminded every day through the spirit of the island and the countless flower offerings laid upon temples about what really matters. My gratitude heart goes out to the selfless Doze crew and volunteers (new and old members).
