The Many Endings and New Beginnings of AwakeningEmbodying awakening is a time of great shifting, but throughout life, you will continue to shift and grow. Everyone will experience this differently, but predominantly, this initial spiritual awakening phase is a phase. It's the time of the caterpillar transforming into the butterfly. It should be embraced fully in the moments that it is with us, and then let go with the understanding that we are not working to get to a goal, that each moment is already a goal in and of itself.
If you have further questions, you can contact me directly through the contact form. I work with people in private, one-on-one sessions via Skype unless you happen to live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
