Women circle; a necessity of our time.

When the announcement for the 1st-degree black belt came out last year, I had no desire of going. I had completed the Black belt training in 2016, and although I did a retake of some of the belts afterward, I was ready to begin a new path in my journey of awareness and self-exploration. I …

Conversations between my mind and body

Awareness
