Dear people (all blind copied)
Some of you have not heard from me in so long you may not

on about school for YEARS may wish you didn't know me! So why
am I emailing now? Most of you know I am a graduate student and

backgrounds, particularly "Neopagans", and the choices they've
made about healing and healthcare.
If you'd participate, I would be grateful. And if you wanted to
pass this along to anyone you think would be interested or
willing, that would be great.
People who complete the survey can be included in a random
drawing for $100, too.
Since I believe in thinking positive, I'll thank you in advance.
I hope you find the survey interesting! I'd love to hear what
