I knew this time would come—the time when our sons would grow up and leave the nest. After our younger son went to college this fall, I’ve been spending significant time in […]
(This article is 5th in Shelley’s series on the chakras) I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes […]
