    This Spring Equinox Essence is all about transformations that can happen when wisdom gained from past experiences meets the challenges we are facing now. Reconsider the stories that have been defining your life and you will transform the trajectory of your life going forward.

    Despite the turbulence in today's world, I don’t think I am alone in my increased appreciation of its beauty and goodness. And appreciating beauty is a powerful action for healing and change — do not underestimate it!
