Love Hugs
A little about me …


I AM Love.

I genuinely care about people and am ever evolving in my capacity to be a better mirror, of positive, nourishing things I see in our world, to help myself and others bring more and more of our higher selves / inner calling, out from the darkness of fear, and into the LIGHT of LOVE!

I originally created Conscious River back in 2006 to share ideas and people who, just about everyone, from every background, religion, ideology, culture, nationality, etc. could identify with … essentially inspirational people who are walking their talk, exposing problems and providing solutions, to Human conditions.  This NEW version of the site is and will be That, and so much more inspiration, motivation, health, happiness … how to be an inspiration to others, the essence of what it means to Be Love, with social media “bridges” to help us all connect with other LIGHTHOUSES at different points along our journey!  You can visit the Conscious River Facebook page here.

I’ve been offering and promoting FREE HUGS, at least once a month, since May of 2010. I am co-admin of the Facebook page FREE HUGS Los Angeles, have been “showing up” regularly to offer hugs at the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk, and have become something of a HOPE / FREE HUGS ambassador to anyone ready to give love, and HEAL, on this level.  I often meetup with other huggers and we encourage others to join us, to exercise their capacity to love others, unconditionally.  My first experience offering FREE HUGS was with a good friend at the Santa Monica Pier =) using large science project cardboard posters with FREE HUGS written by hand!   Such a heart expanding experience!  Since we started offering hugs in 2010, we have distributed (mostly by donation) probably over 5,000 FREE HUGS signs … and counting =)!  Here’s the FREE HUGS Los Angeles (official music video) we made after about a year or so offering hugs regularly, around Los Angeles!  I also put together an ever expanding playlist of others who have posted FREE HUGS videos from around the world here.  The first video is the original video that started a movement!

I had a “radio” program on called Our Healing Choices for nearly 3 years, which I facilitated with others who showed up to share, or listen and learn, about a different wellness topic, each week.  The first program was in April, 2014.  I love what this program represented and what it became!  So grateful for all the people who contributed their truth to this!  I created a playlist of recordings of many of these programs on youtube you can watch here. You can also visit the Facebook page here.

This covers the top of the iceberg of the depth of who I am, as I believe no amount of writing could ever fully describe a person.  I am who I am and am becoming; this website is what it is and is becoming.  In the future, whenever reasonably possible, I will be tapping into the unique Awesome of visitors, to help evolve this site into more of something we can all identify with and all be proud of =)!

Much (( LOVE )) & Gratitude!
