Hi All,

Happy New Year! This year, I’m off on a journey. I decided to drop everything and put my entire being into a book project I really believe in. I feel such an emotional connection to this project, and think it can help a lot of people. So, starting January 3rd, I will be moving somewhere more remote, and will meditating and writing, and don’t plan on returning until this is done. 

I look forward, passionately, to sharing the fruits with you when it’s ready, and continuing this monthly newsletter. In the meantime, I will be struggling, searching, discovering, dreaming, and learning. Much love to all, and may 2018 bring you much joy, warmth, creativity, fulfillment, meaning, and purpose!
