The School of the Widely Open Heart

School of the Widely Open Heart 1

I want to share a vision I have been holding for the last year, for the School of the Widely Open Heart! The recent New Moon in Virgo did my head in. I felt stripped back, abraided at a soul level. Unmoored from aspects of meaning and identity. Beliefs I’d built myself on. The energy […]
