STOP DOING. Slow down and go inward. (PICS from my epic retreat in San Diego)

Do you give yourself permission to slow down, rest, reflect? Or are you always in "go-go" mode, doing and doing all the time? If you are, this is time to STOP doing.  Yep.

What is your theme for 2018?

I am wishing you a magical 2018 full of everything that matters most to you. I want to share with you a practice that I do every year to set an intention for the New Year.
