Ready to take a
Deeper Dive?

Think it’s time to start breaking down some thought paradigms?

Inspired by fresh ideas, mindful reflections, and a touch of soulful magic?

The Adventure Of A (Human) Lifetime

Are we human beings having a spiritual experience, or are spiritual beings having a human experience?   Sitting in an auditorium for a 2014 event focused on women’s empowerment, the woman who had just finished her speech announced, “Before you...

Possibility Doesn’t Need a Purpose, So Neither Do We

Post-Pandemic Friendships: It’s Time to “Ride or Die.”

“I’m uncomfortable around your anger,” my best friend admitted to me. She admitted this, because we had the kind of friendship where nothing was off-limits. The kind of friendship where we mirrored each other’s thoughts and finished each other’s sentences....
