She possesses an unwavering commitment to helping people to open to each other, to love one another, and to find healing and happiness.

Wellbeing Workshops at Rhodes Peaceful Movement Nursing Home,
Most of our clients have substance issues and/or mental health challenges. Althea listened to their various experiences and circumstances that led them to their present situations, she asked gentle yet insightful questions and shared relevant stories from her own experience. She encouraged and motivated them, provided them with emotional support and most importantly prayed with them.
My staff and I are extremely grateful for the vitality and enthusiasm that she brought to our home and most importantly, the inspiration that she provided for the patients. And we trust that Althea will be greatly rewarded for donating her time, her experience, and her expertise to our organization.
We hope that she will come back very soon and wish her well on her work and travels.
P.S. The men continue to be more cheerful and are still talking about you and your work and if you will return to Jamaica and work with them on a regular basis.
God Bless you Althea.

I loved seeing how you wonderfully and appropriately handled the students that were comfortable, uncomfortable, or even resistant to mindfulness practice. I also loved that you included movement to the practice, called each student individually to respond and included everyone.
Thank you for coming to St Marys again Althea. You are a wonderful
inspiration and I love learning from you.
