What we’re Listening to this week.....
Trust is incredibly important to building relationships and being true to yourself.
In this podcast, Tami Simon of Sounds True and Light Watkins, author and meditation teacher, sit down to talk about trust. Light decided three years ago to trust himself enough to sell his possessions and start leading a nomadic lifestyle. He discusses how he recognized and followed his gut feeling. The podcast also touches on how to listen to yourself and overcome fears that hold us back. He discusses how he identifies his inner voices and decides which ones are inner saboteurs to ignore and which ones he should take note of. He speaks to discovering and living life as your Real self. Have a listen and let us know what you think.

What we’re watching this week...

It also touches on how David Roche has learned how to see his own true beauty.
