Palmam Qui Meruit Ferat

By Robert Steiner

Let’s start with Palmam. These are relationships. There is no higher reward for any human being than a whole and sincere relationship.


We earn relationships through our deep presence before the whole experience of other people, and our willingness to share our own vulnerabilities with other people. And to do both in a spirit of gratefulness.

Palmam Qui Meruit Ferat.
