A couple years ago I signed up for four weeks of Life Coaching with Elena Brower, via the Handel Group. I was in the midst of major life changes (as I often seem to be); drowning in the corporate soup of a job that was sucking the life right out of me, still reeling from the dissolution of my family unit, and at a loss as to how to move forward.
I felt stuck, confused, and in dire need of some help to create clarity and structure around what my next step was going to be.
Elena, who's teachings I'd been following for a while, showed up in my...
Your life is yours alone. And yet, we so often feel as though we have no control over what happens to us, and maybe that's true, maybe life just happens to us.

I've had an interesting week, laden with contrast. For every exalted, heart–expanding high I've felt, there's been an unexpected low of equal measure.
Been surfing the waves of my emotions.
I've been here before, I know the routine; allow the emotions to roll through, don't attach any labels or judgments, just bring awareness to what's showing up, accept it, feel it and allow it to release.
