Awakening Radiant Health Part 1: You are not Broken

When I say the words “weight loss program” what is your response?

Do any of the following statements resonate?

Transform Old Patterns, Transform Your Life

We are right around the corner from the equinox. Alaska is in full fall mode: golden leaves, vibrant blue skies, jeweled berries, and whimsical red mushrooms. I am so in love with the glorious energy of this season!
