A month-long celebration of Pride is upon us, and although it may mean something different to each of us, it is ultimately about honoring our most authentic selves. Each and every one of us is special and carries many unique gifts. What if instead of questioning or judging ourselves and others, we embraced our differences and reveled in the beauty of what makes us each unique?
Waking up and taking time to honor the light inside ourselves is important - not only for our own mental health, but because it reminds us that we are all on this journey called life together.
Here are our favorite sessions for grounding us in our right to love and be free and to live authentically and unapologetically how we choose.

Marianne Williamson said best...
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
