Unleash Yourself to Transform the World

People often ask me why I became a doula. Well, there are many reasons, and over the years I continue to discover more and more. The other day I saw a video showing animals who’d lived their whole lives in captivity, being released from their cages. To see them exploring and experiencing freedom for the […]

The Easiest Way to DETOX

Holy Wowza, if you need an ENERGY BOOST, I can’t recommend taking a “Technology Detox Day” highly enough!! What’s that, you ask?
