    Hi! It’s been a while and I wanted to check in with a reminder to breathe. In times of uncertainty (like what we’re experiencing with the US Presidential election, for instance…), it is vital that we remember to tune in with the breath. In this short episode, I share 2 upcoming episode topics and also give some specific tips on breathing.

    Until next time, keep on breathing and keep on Purifying!
