What a summer! Glad to live it, glad to leave it behind. (Many of you have shared a similar sentiment!) Holding steadfast to the principles in my book, Everything Matters, Nothing Matters has helped in navigating the miasma. Now it's a brand new day and the future is golden. Do you feel this, too?

During retreat time in Sedona recently, 350 of us pondered big questions about how to best live a sacred, profound and creatively fertile life, and help others do so, as well. We were encouraged to "pay attention to our wake" . . . that is, the trail we leave behind (like waves left by a boat) as we walk through our days. Do you leave a trail of grievances or miracles? Judgement or love? Fear or courage?

As we lean into the autumn season, my intention is to live these answers with you. Here are a few places where I'll be during the coming weeks . . . or, as always, feel free to respond to this post or FB me!
