Getting through a bout of depression is key. We can move through it, not push it away or run away from it. We can face it, straight on with bravery and trust that we will get to the other side.

Turning Projections into Reflections

Turning Projections into Reflections

Drink Water + Breathe Self-Compassion

Drink Water + Breathe Self-Compassion

We need more people in this world practicing self-compassion, so we can build a more kind, forgiving and empathetic Earth. Each time we practice self-compassion, we teach our own ecosystem how to do it as well. The work we do within ourselves has ripple effects, even when we cannot see them.
