New HTIA Board of Directors 2015

Dear Healing Tao Instructor,
 
We embrace with our hearts all the members of the HTIA as we announce the results of our first board meeting.  We look forward to restoring harmony at this critical time where some people did not vote, felt confused or that it was not the right way.  We are focused on giving our best as we bring fresh energy to face the work ahead in serving our members.
 
EXECUTIVE.  We elected our Executive Committee officers, who will serve one year:

  1. President:  Karin Sörvik. Senior Instructor
  2. Vice-President:  Steven Peterson.  He has 20 years experience in Tao arts.  He brings strong business and marketing skills to this board.
  3. Secretary:  Chris Dewreede.  He has been cultivating One Cloud's formulas for 20 years.
  4. Treasurer:  Ji Hea Kim.  She has spent a lot of time at Tao Garden and recently opened her own Healing Arts Center in San Diego.
