Women Waking ...

I've been very busy this week, not online much, busily preparing my new 30-Day E-Course:

"What To Do When You're Feeling Blue:  
30 Days of Insights and Practices to Change the "Hue" of Your Life"

I am beyond thrilled about this course and it should launch Wednesday, Dec. 7, just in time for the holidays. It will take you through one month of daily practices that can shift your day (and life!) from dull gray to multi-colored happy—no matter what is happening in your life. 

Stay tuned for launch news!

In the meantime, I'd like to re-share an illustration and quote that I absolutely love.

The illustration, by artist Mara Friedman, speaks to me of our fullness as women—and the rich in spirit life we can choose for ourselves when we live "awake and aware."

The thought, offering by the great Tibetan teacher, Chogyam Trungpa, never fails to uplift and inspire me.

If somebody is waking for the first time from a deep sleep, 
she might see the midnight stars.  
But if she waits long enough without going back to sleep,
she will begin to see not only stars but the dawn, then the sunrise, 

and then the whole landscape being lit by a brilliant light coming from the sky. 
She will begin to see her hands, her palms, her toes, 
and she will also begin to see her tables,
her chairs, and the world around her.
And if she is clever enough to look at a mirror, 
she will also see herself.

~Chogyam Trungpa

As always, I welcome your thoughts. And wish you a glorious weekend of awakenings!
