Free Thought “School”

“In celebration of the kind and encouraging teachers I have connected with on my life journey and inspired by each student I have had the privilege of engaging with during my time as an educator, I have created, At The Center.  

ATC is my gift to all who seek to know their oneness.” ~ Elisa Garcia
