Into The Wild: The importance of blazing your own trail

17 Apr 2017 spirit + soul

All is quiet today. It’s Easter Monday. And the end of my Lenten journey. And for the first time, perhaps, ever, I feel completely ok with that. You see, I often feel a sense of melancholy and guilt at the end of the Lenten season + Easter week. I think it’s because I have always felt like I could have done better. I could have meditated more. Gone deeper. Focused more. Taken it more seriously. Experienced more mystery. Like IRead More

3 Apr 2015 spirit + soul

And with it comes another cosmic time of great power + opportunity for change. However strong and amazing the change may be, we may also feel in the dark – if you’re like me, than you feel the shift, you know there’s a huge change, butRead More
