A Desire Map Program for the New Year!

The word “resolution” is rooted in a beautiful idea that’s nearly 700 years old: in Latin, it means the process of reducing things into simpler forms. Mmmhmm. We’ve gotten lost on the way to New Year’s resolutions, didn’t we? There’s a much better way to create the year you want. No baggage, less striving. More … read more
