TRANSFORM FEAR TO EXCITEMENT

TRANSFORM FEAR TO EXCITEMENT

Resistance. We all know about it. It is like the two weeks prior to hiking The Stawamus Chief, where my daughter worried and whined that she would not be able to do it. Or like the two years prior to my Yoga Therapy course, where I routinely convinced myself that surely someone or something would sabotage the completion.

A SUSTAINABLE SUMMER

Time is the most precious gift someone can give you. That is, when it is complete undivided attention with presence. Full body listening for the sake of understanding.
