Earth My Body

May 9, 2022

...our souls exist before and after our time here, but our bodies are unique to this time, providing us with our roadmap to what it is we are here to do.

Getting to Know Ourselves

The more we understand ourselves the more we are able to live in alignment with our life's path. This is not something we can decide or learn with one workshop, book, or session, or 100 of them.
