Self-care as a way of building resilience and managing stress

Recently we had an online conversation that inspired me to reflect on my own life regarding the topic… so I ended up with this long list – I have never gathered it in this way – about things I follow or do for myself. This blog post in a classic way won’t be too...

Coming home…

Coming home… There is this most beautiful phrase of Ram Dass when he says – ’We’re all just walking each other home…’. When I felt the call to sit down and write about changing my name this quote came to my mind and also along with that an old memory from maybe 25 years...
