Regain and Keep Balance in the New Year

Will the Information Age Be the Death of Us?

Again and again I hear from clients their number one struggle is to find and keep balance in their lives.  The world, it seems, well conspires against this.  How did we come to feel everything is a matter of life and death?

Will the “Information Age” be the death of us?  We have an innate and integral rhythm, and it involves our bodies, minds and spirits.  That rhythm depends on a regular starting and stopping, to rest, recharge and well continue to move in alignment with the world we live in.

I wish you a bright new year in balance and wholeness – Love always, Marjorie
