In our efforts to get it done (fast) and be more efficient, most of us spend 90% of our time in a masculine, yang-type energy of achievement. However, if we want to experience more balance, maybe this holiday season is the time to embrace a more feminine holiday. 

Dec 12, 2018

Dec 11, 2018

We pile ALL the things onto our own shoulders during the holidays, hoping to make things magical and "perfect," but do we really know what our loved ones ACTUALLY want? It's time to find out.

Dec 10, 2018

Do the traditions you learned as a child amplify your desired feelings for the holidays? Or extinguish them? Which traditions should you keep? Which traditions can you change?
