MovNat: Explore Your True Nature

It’s kinda funny…I’ve archived plenty of blog posts but I’ve never done it when I knew I’d not see the blog for 2-3 weeks. It’s kinda like writing material for your funeral or maybe I need to take more time away from social media more often. Wacky! Well, now that summer is settling in Read more…

MovNat Day 3

MovNat-Day 1!

MovNat Day 1-Tuesday Richard did a fantastic review of the MovNat Awakening course he attended, make sure to check it out. I’ll try to not be too redundant but the Expansion course is similar in content to the Awakening course, so this is inevitable to some degree.   We kicked Read more…
