Understanding our journey as a constant state of transformations that lead to a monumental occurrence of transmutation allows us to appreciate each step towards personal growth, small or large, in a more genuine and fulfilling way. Denoting the difference between them can aid us in staying motivated on our path, as confusing transformational moments as transmutational ones can be discouraging and stunt our growth. We all want better for ourselves, whether that is a better situation, a better Self, a better job, a better social circle. Jumping straight to transmutation is not realistic, we must be up for the hard, internal work that is transformation, as the only way to move past anything is to travel directly through it, experiencing it in its entirety, accepting it, and allowing it to guide us beyond what we’ve ever known, to a place of complete and utter metamorphosis.
Mark Nepo’s article, “How to Return to your Center,” is one of the most earnest and empowering piece’s of writing I’ve read in a LONG TIME! It’s a quick read that packs a pretty potent punch of insight. His perspective of enlightenment being a process we continually live within, rather than a destination we live to arrive at, brought an instantaneous wave of calm over my mind, body, and soul. He speaks to the balance between the finite (human) and the infinite (spirit) in a harmonious fashion that left me feeling motivated to continuing riding this flow we call life!
Julianne Farrell is a Goddess of Light and a Warrior of Life, two aspects of her being that permeate any space she leads!

What I’ve found most beneficial about this balanced state of living, this yin and yang of working towards success in my career, but equally enjoying aspects of life that don’t necessarily provide a tangible reward in the end, is that I always end up finding inspiration for my work within the personal interests I make time for.
In light of the freezing tundra hitting the Midwest, I thought I’d provide exposure to some lifestyle and practice tips for the yogis looking to thrive this winter!

The challenges of winter can be quite intimidating, especially under a Polar Vortex, but with the help of a healthy practice and lifestyle, even the coldest of months can provide healing and joy!
