He has experienced formal and informal education from diverse sources across Canada and around the world. The disadvantaged and the poor have taught and continue to teach Rick how to serve others. He is often asked; "How do you continue to work with those who are experiencing loss, dying, suffering and experiencing significant life transitions?" His response; " I meditate daily, I pray, I practice qi gong, I seek out experiences in nature, play music and feel the love from my family, friends and co-workers. I cannot provide compassionate care alone."
