Matt Tolman (Ceremonial Kindness Attendant and Co-facilitator in Training)

Matt had a rough and abusive childhood, growing up at odds with his strictly religious Mormon community. Homeless at 16, he entered a destructive 12-year marriage and has had bouts of depression throughout his life. These lived experiences drove him to work with Rita, first as a client then co-facilitator in training, and to the Sacred Valley in Peru. All of these rich lived experiences have cultivated in him a gift for honest compassion, and the ability to see and understand people from many walks of life.
