2017 was quite a year for me. It was a full year of retreats, teaching courses, writing on my second book, hosting the 4th annual Your Sacred Ambition Event, and traveling to Europe twice – both to feed my heart and soul in places that call to me.
My Camino (which means, way or journey) that year, and since, is a continuation of a ‘journey’ that started for me nearly a decade ago.
We all have been conditioned to seek validation from the world. When we were small it came from our family, or not; our teachers, or not; our sports coach, or our best friend, our good grades or the ‘in’ crowd at school. At best it was a slippery slope.
In a very small town, in rural New Mexico, tens of thousands of people gather from all over the southwest this time of year – and many walk for days – to light a candle and receive a scoop of dirt from the Santuario de Chimayo.
“My sacred calling is to really know the essence of who I am – to embrace myself as the being that I am with my challenges and my gifts and my loving.
As I bring forward my loving and self-acceptance to myself…this is really important to me – how can I bring that genuineness of that loving to the work I do?”
