Suzanne Matthiessen

Community Team

"We ALL lead by the example we extend in whatever sphere of influence we have, in any given situation or interaction. To live a truly sustainable lifestyle, our outer actions must transparently reflect our inner values and virtues - and vice versa - in other words, our *doing* must be aligned with our *being* if we wish to have a contagiously positive and authentic impact. In my conscious awareness skills training and advising work, I teach how to attain inner/outer balance and harmony as a form of service to our fellow human beings and the planet we all share. I advocate for the new triple bottom line: People, Planet and Purpose (beyond Profits). "

    This was supposed to be in my previous post today:

    Living up in Hermitage right now has made it challenging to drive down to attend Pittsburgh events on regular basis. I hope that will change in the near future as I want to be a contributor and supporter of the positive, proactive sustainability work that is taking place.

    Looking forward to meeting the Sustainable Pittsburgh team and many like-minded attendees at the Finale & Awards Celebration this Thursday, as well as learning how I can be of service to the Big Picture shared visions of this network within the Greater Pittsburgh Area.

    I currently live in Hermitage (moved here from California several years ago to be with my boyfriend), and feel isolated from people who share the same commitment to a holistic, consciously sustainable lifestyle. I've already been doing many of these actions, but joined this challenge to be part of a network of greater Pittsburgh are people dedicated to Leading The Change, as I know we are stronger together.

    Hello - I choose the daily cooking new organic recipes challenge, but it continues to say I've chosen zero meals. ?
