"As we move into a more chaotic and uncertain world with much rising to the surface for transformation, self-care and community connection are even more valuable in order to maintain calm compassion in the face of challenge. It is my hope that as we connect more with Mama Earth and her rhythms, we will remember our role as caregivers and step into stewards’ shoes. It is my hope that instead of disconnecting from our bodies to cope that we may travel down deep, choosing to be embodied, to live in our bodies and to treat our bodies well."
