profile of woman in headscarf - looking down - ready for changeTime to change. As we know, all cultural training teaches women to take care of their family’s needs as the highest priority and at any cost. As nurturing spirits, we often extend that caring behavior to include everyone but ourselves. The result can be difficulty in “saying no,” setting boundaries and addressing one’s own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs.

NOW is the time to change our minds – in a GOOD way.

Also, you will help the group or me come up with some more ideas. I often customize and/or record a meditation just for the class, and it will be yours as a gift to help you find new ways to Change Your Life for the better.

You gain self-respect when you provide self-care. That then enables you to provide a better quality of assistance when you choose to be of service to others. It is a choice.
