Contact: Steve Sherwood,

“Throughout my life, I have sought a way to live that is calm, connected and centered no matter how busy and chaotic the world becomes.  I don’t want other people’s needs and worries to control my attitude. I don’t want the business of life to pull me away from my family. I refuse to let the situations around me decide how much I can love and enjoy being alive. That’s why I created Next Step. Please join us.”
