My two guiding principles

  I was consulting with a corporate client this morning, we were discussing strategies to create a more mindful workplace.

And hat has been the beauty of these last 6 weeks, experiencing each day fully present moment to moment being guided not by trip advisor or top 10 things to see lists or even the “must do’s” but instead by my inner GPS. Don’tContinue Reading >>
