It’s Monday! By the time you read this I will be wrapping up a 4 day silent meditation at Joshua Tree. Yes, that is right I am currently at a 4 day silent meditation! I can’t believe it either! Something shifted in the fall of 2016. Around that time, I realized I would be okay…
Mindful Monday #133 – Embrace Your Shadow
