Hello Courageous Souls,

In my last newsletter, I wrote to you about trusting Soul Activism.

Winter Invitation: Hibernating as a Courageous Act

Hello Courageous Souls,

As we enter the Winter season, we are invited to turn our attention inward to a deeper, slower, more subtle realm.

From the outside, this may appear to be a “waste of time” and yet, the generativity of spring is dependent upon the stillness of winter.
