Dear TAO Foundation Friend,

Best wishes for a wonderful summer season to you and your loved ones.  This is an update on the TAO Foundation and the progress we are making on the Autistic Service/Research Project:

  • The research committee, along with our wonderful research consultant Stephanie Owens, met over the weekend of June 18th and developed a method for analyzing the data. We began the arduous work of analyzing the data bits from three different questionnaires used in the course of working with the six children.
  • Wow! I had no idea that this last service project, Serving Families Living with Autism would be so big. We must have hundreds of thousands of bits of data on each child.  The information we can pull together will be amazing and unlike anything that has been done before. However, it is a huge task.
  • The information could directly affect the way the health service industry treats children diagnosed with autism. The information will also do a lot to legitimize TAO Energy Work as a modality to use in the treatment of autism.
  • This research work is so huge that we have decided not to launch another project until we have this current research project completed.  The information we glean can then be used to guide further service projects.
  • Jan Cendese,  Roger Olbrot, David Hodges and Kerry Dew will be working most Wednesday nights in the near future on analyzing the data together. They will be keeping Stephanie Owens apprised by email and phone.

The Foundation has had a 7 year history of nurturing supporters. Your donations will be very much appreciated to help with the administrative costs of analyzing the autistic project data and build funding for the next service project.  In this time of financial crisis and hardship on so many levels, the support, passion and love that has poured out of people in support of the TAO Foundation just makes me feel that the matrix of awareness and consciousness is guiding us.  Because of your membership, love and spirit, our TAO Ship continues to sail. Stay aboard and hold on as we continue to create and expand the creative path of learning, being and service.

Love and light
