It’s Tough to Let Go & Trust Right Now

I’ll be the first to admit it’s tough to Let Go & Trust right now.  There is so much out of our control. It’s a scary time. My friend Tetyana Azarova and I just completed an online course based on her PhD dissertation that explored the role of Inspiration during times of personal challenge or crisis.  In the hope this course might be helpful during this challenging time, I’m offering it… Read More »It’s Tough to Let Go & Trust Right Now
