It is a significant request to ask you to share your fear, burden, anxiety or sadness. It is therefore, my desire and intention that you leave this journey feeling heard, respected and empowered. This effort is a collaboration. Neither can do it alone. But together, we can seek awareness, newness, knowledge and healing.
