    Finding Your Goddess Gaia Glasses for the New Year

    Do we need to stress and hurry to make 2022 great?

    This is the feminine consciousness of Gaia, the first goddess of creation in Greek Mythology. Dr. Kate shares about Gaia’s gifts we need right now to come into balance in our feminine and masculine energies, and ways we can reconnect with the wisdom of the cycles, evolution and guidance of the natural world that Gaia reflects for us.
