The GATEWAY and I, Tony Camacho, are deeply saddened to share with you the passing of Loren Collins this morning (Thurs Oct 13th). It is not entirely clear as to the cause but it appears to be a suicide. For those of you who had the blessed opportunity to connect with Loren at various workshops or hiking, I’m sure you agree what a wonderful, giving young man he was. He was a man who had faced much adversity in his youth but he was also a young man seeking with a fierce intensity to unravel the truth within himself, exploring how to excavate more of the loving, giving him. He was an example in many ways of how we might navigate through our world. His beaming, glowing, radiant smile is imprinted in an indelible way upon my heart as with many of you. Our condolences, our love and prayers especially to his family, mother Chris, brother Landon and girlfriend Rebecca and for Loren for demonstrating the courage and strength he did, for be-gifting his world the beloved footprint he so very much has.

Very sorry to hear... I could of only hoped I worked with him on these overpowering impulses. Sometime there is no way out... yet there is always hope....I would urge any surviving family members to look at their Generational Systemic effects that prompted this choice. The reaction to this stimuli doesn't stop with him but is held by the larger Family system of which he is a part of. Namaste to him on his journey of Discovery and deepest sympathy to his surviving family. Namaste GAARY

I am so sorry to hear this. Tony, I agree with everything you said describing Loren. I knew him from A Course in Miracles class and he would often come to the meditation group at my house. He was a very gentle person, having worked hard putting his difficult past behind him and eagerly focusing on his spirituality and loving side. That wasn't hard to do. Loren was a very loveable person, sweet and gentle. One time at meditation, his mother Chris came with him and there was an obvious love and caring between them. He will be missed and we will say a prayer for Loren at our next meetings.

Hi Heidi, Right now I have my friend Michelle, so if there are three of you; You, Danielle and Tony, that works! (although someone will have to volunteer to sit in the middle in the back seat)
