This summer has been a whirlwind of intense energies. Are you feeling it, too? My astrologer friends have been talking about all the powerful conjunctions, squares, and oppositions affecting us, not only individually but as a culture.
It makes sense to me. We made it through the portal that was 2012, the end of the Mayan calendar, and now we’re on to something completely new. Yet we don’t quite know how to approach it. Personally, I feel like I’m clearing out old energies and making way for a new consciousness, a new way of dancing through my life. I’m nearly ready.
A couple of cherished projects reflect that state as well.
I can’t wait to share my brand-new book with you! It’s called Cultivating Self-Love: Your Path to Wholeness. BlackLion and I are self-publishing it as an e-book, by choice. It’s the first in our new series, Inspired Living, and we like the idea of getting these books out to you in a timely way, at an affordable price. The new book is just $4.99. My intention is to publish two more in 2014. Yes, an ambitious goal!
Cultivating Self-Love will be ready this week, and I’ll let you know when it’s available. Writing this book was such a joy – sharing what I’ve learned over the past few years along my path to self-love is a delight. I really want to get it into your hands right now. In the meantime, here’s a taste of what it’s about:
Want to live a more joyful, fulfilling life? One of the best things you can do is to learn to love yourself. Most of us have been taught to treat ourselves with disdain and criticism. Yet within you is a wellspring of love that, when you learn to tap into it, will increase your compassion, creativity, and joy. Cultivating Self-Love: Your Path to Wholeness will lead you on a gentle journey to greater self-love and confidence. Step into the garden, and expand the borders of your closest relationship: the one with yourself!
Our trip to the Rethinking Everything conference in Dallas, Texas is happening in less than two weeks. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we have our plane tickets and we’re nearly ready to go! Thank you so much if you’ve contributed in any way, from dollars to well wishes. It has helped immensely. We still have a few expenses to cover, but we’re confident we can do this. If you still want to be a part of it, visit our fundraising page. I’m so excited for the conference, and for all the ideas and creations that will emerge from our travels.
The rest of the summer stretches out before me, with travel, family birthdays, books, gigs, helping my friends, dancing, and sunshine. I’m nearly ready.
