To be fulfilled in life is to choose to recover from fear and pain, to love and freedom, over and over again.
Our deeply personalblog honors the wisdom of feelings and the power of living from the heart. We encourage readers to move courageously toward a life of more self-confidence and richer, more rewarding relationships with Self and Other. Our blog amplifies the power of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and the benefits of living your truth, not someone else's.
Our free recorded interviews address the most fundamental human need: to love and feel loved. Ranging from 20-60 minutes long, these free recordings are lively conversations offering tools to enrich your relationship with Self and other. Just listen, or take it a step further, grab a pen and take notes.
