Intimacy

Many of us sit for 6-8 hours per day and spend a lot of time mostly in our heads and out of our bodies throughout the day.

Your most vibrant self is always accessible to you; it is a matter of improving the quality of your life to allow that vibrant self to grow.  It is so easy to get caught up in the struggles of everyday life and become overwhelmed with daily demands.  These ruts can pull us down, without our even realizing it.  We tend to take on too much, give what we don’t have, and stop filling up our own cups.  … [Read Article and Leave a Comment...]
