Addiction and Feeling the Pain Body
Addiction comes in so many forms. Anything from substance abuse, money, success, jealousy, excess, obsessiveness to being needed. This article discusses understanding what the pain body is and how to begin releasing it with gentle guidance using sound therapy, kundalini yoga & meditation.
Finding Forgiveness Until There is No One To Forgive

I am also celebrating exactly 20 years of teaching yoga and the healing arts FULL TIME!
