Of course Stan Dale contributed to my life. He contributed to every life he touched. I’ve considered him a friend and mentor for many years. He’s lead many workshops I’ve attended as a participant, assistant and and intern. As the man who created the work of HAI he has had a greater impact on my life than almost any other human being. I’ve picked him up at the airport, driven him to workshops, given him a bed in my home and run into him by accident halfway around the world. He has been an unfailingly kind, gentle, open hearted man. I’ve loved him and admired him and will be forever grateful to have had him in my life.
