For a long time I thought effort was the way. Deserving was the way. Being better. Trying harder. Striving. Not stopping. Until I realized that I was too anxious, too sensitive, too exhausted by all of that striving. I couldn’t do it anymore.

I have two circles opening up now. (Limited number of spots) And you are invited to join me!
Here are the details:
Choose which time slot works best for you!
Hit reply if you are a yes! And we can arrange payment and your preferred time slot. (Monthly payment plans are available)
Feeling so much gratitude for each of you + trusting that these circles always come together with just the right mix of new friends.
