What advice would you give our attendees?

We live in a world that is so distracting that it’s so easy to keep our focus on the external and become overly influenced by what is happening outside of us. But the most powerful, self-loving, essential action you can do to thrive in your life is to … LISTEN to yourself. And then take action! There is a lot of wisdom within you. Those inner stirrings know exactly what you want and need.
