A Task Force of Three Leadership Models

When I first heard about TimeBanking, I was very impressed with the concept. I found that it expanded my awareness of how I could reach out to people in my own neighborhood. When I was going out of town I found a neighbor who was very willing to water my garden for me. She transported people to airports, so I hired her to do that for me. When I returned home she had some physical challenges, so I offered to do a Touch for Health testing and balancing to put her body back in the normal healing mode and speed up her healing. We have become walking partners in the neighborhood.
