Living an Engaged Life

I am so thankful to have found this podcast. Colleen has committed her life for the animals and shares so much knowledge. And she gives so much information on living life in a real and engaged way! Because of her I am now making my own soy milk and tofu (her class was awesome) and today I will attempt to memorize one of my favorite poems. She lives life in such as engaged way and encourages us all to do the same. Thank you for all you do Colleen!
