– your self talk?
– your beliefs and their power to create your reality?
– your passions?
– your purpose?
Go on a treasure hunt to discover your authentic self and the truth of life in and around you!

“Love is a fire and I am wood.” -Rumi
Love has been the subject for poets throughout the ages. In contemporary times, think of how many songs we hear that are all about love! According to the lyrics, “Love is all there is,” and “Love can move mountains.” Love brings us to the movies, where we can see love acted out larger than life and feel our emotions stir. We are drawn to love because that is what we all crave more of. And we crave love because that is what we are made of! Love brings us to our true nature. We are consumed by it because we want to know who we really are, and love allows us to experience that.
