The Flower Moon – A perfect time to blossom in our own way 🌼

Hi Petals, How are you all? I hope your treating yourselves kindly? I know you’re not supposed to put links to stuff that’s not your own in newsletters but honestly, the most useful thing I’ve read this year is this blog post about our brains[…]

Softness in tough times 💗🌼

Softness in tough times 💗🌼

How are you? Never before have we meant that question so much. I believe we have never been more empathetic than we are now. Never more sensitive, compassionate, and uncomfortably aware of our fear-selves and those of others as we are now.

Integrity, Courage and being the Self you want to be
