“Q: What did you get out of the training?
A: What I am learning still from the training is that I’m ok. What I found is that having AIDS doesn’t make a difference at the least to some people. I’m learning how to be more open. I’m learning how to be more vulnerable. I’ve been learning to reach out and I’ve been learning a lot about having friends and being someone’s friend. I’m learning how special some people are and I’m learning how special I am. I’m discovering a new value in myself that I misplaced for a long time.” from Eclipse: The Shanti Project Newsletter Summer 1985, p. 5.
