“There are no such thing as handicapped bodies, just handicapped minds.”
This is a quote from Tinman Walker, who shared these words with us when he was a teenager.
We would like to honor Tinman Walker for all his teachings and for how much he has enriched our lives.
We met Tinman when he was a teenager. As a child, he was hit by a truck while riding his bike. He spent several months in the hospital, during which he was in a coma, and the doctors thought he would never wake up again.
To their surprise, and his parents’ joy, Tinman did wake up! He began visiting the Center for Attitudinal Healing in Sausalito, where he shared his belief that not only would he walk again one day, but that he would go skiing, attend college, and be able to drive a car.
He believed with all his heart, as did his parents, that nothing was impossible.
We are happy to share that Tinman did indeed return to the mountains to go skiing. He also learned to drive a car, graduated from college, and continues to bless the world with his love and his determined belief that there is a higher power who wants nothing more than to help us succeed in life.
Tinman Walker is now in his 40s, and continues to be an amazing teacher of love to everyone who meets with him.
Love and Peace,
Jerry and Diane
