How exciting to open my e-mail this past week to receive this message from the PA Gestalt Center that ended in the following manner:
PS...And please forward Mariah’s talk to anyone who you think might be interested in her work.
It would be great if you let us know what you feel about this topic and Mariah’s speech. And, thank you for your continuing support of our work.
I've had more than one friend request information, even a picture of Mariah and her soul mate Ron Gladis. This e-mail could not have come at a better time and I am hoping to share her inspirational thoughts far and wide - starting with you... here goes:
Mariah Fenton Gladis was recently invited to give a TIM Talk (Together In Mission) by the Lutheran Metropolitan Washington, D.C. Synod. This TED-like talk series is an event with multiple speakers about the best idea they have for the future.
Mariah's topic, Creating Moments That Matter, is about the power that moments, large or small, spontaneous or planned, can have in your life. Moments that can transform, connect, elevate, and sometimes heal. Mariah believes that as moment makers and receivers, we all have the opportunity to make positive changes in the lives of others and ourselves. During her talk, Mariah is also self-revealing of some moments that have changed her life.

To see a link to a three-minute trailer for the film, “Mariah”, their son, Cole, is currently making about Mariah’s life, please check out: http://www.mariahmovie.com
As far as how I feel about Mariah and her message - both in the TIM talk and the trailer from "Mariah" - I am both humbled and blessed to learn from her. She has taken ALS and stared it in the face, refusing to be daunted by it - in fact, growing even more determined and intuitive because of it.
Her compassion towards herself and others knows no bounds. She makes those in her presence believe that goodness, healing and moving on is possible even in the most dire of circumstances.
You may need to strain to hear the videos - I did and I really had to focus. For me, it was worth every moment and I hope that it is for you as well.
