Warm summer greetings!
My name is Gabriela Hylton Garza. I’m honored to serve as the Fire Keeper of the Thrive East Bay Stewardship Circle and as a co-facilitator of our Thriving Life Circle.
When I walked into my first Thrive East Bay event a year and a half ago, I immediately fell head over heels in love with the radiant people, vibrant music, and loving energy. I knew I wanted to get involved, not only to support the development of this unique community, but also to spend quality time with the dynamic leadership teams. They are who I want to become in this world: fiercely passionate, community-oriented, and dedicated to personal and group transformation.
I had been protective of my dreams, fears, and accomplishments, only sharing the intimacies of my life with my mother. I was terrified that if people knew who I really was, they would reject me and no longer share their love. I have come to realize I didn’t know who I was, but with the loving, tender support from the beloved Thrive East Bay community, I have begun to remember my power, my wisdom, and my purpose.
Thrive East Bay has become my home. A place where I feel completely seen, heard, valued, and cherished. A place for me to share my tears, my laughter, my joy, my grief, my love. I never knew people could open their hearts and welcome others into their lives so fully that we have become an incredible family dedicated to authentic connection, endless support, and co-creating a world where everyone is able to thrive.
As we celebrate our 2 year anniversary this month, I would like to invite you to help keep the gift of the Thrive East Bay community alive by making a meaningful financial contribution today.
We heal and transform together. Thank you for supporting this community and helping us spread the love further!
With Deep Appreciation,
Gabriela & all of the Thrive East Bay Team
