By teamazim / January 15, 2023 / Comments Off on Monthly Musing: Manifest Your Year’s Theme in One Word

Dear Friend, As we enter a new year, I believe it is important to set intentions and vision early. Words are powerful, as we know from prayer and our spiritual journey. “Let there be light” and there was light.” The words “I believe” manifest our belief into reality.

Question of the Month: What is a Soulular Discovery Masterclass?

By teamazim / December 12, 2022 / Comments Off on Question of the Month: What is a Soulular Discovery Masterclass?

What is a Soulular Discovery Masterclass? After teaching workshops for over two decades, it has become clear to me that the work we do together is “Soulular” — changing the cell level of the soul. Spiritual resiliency is hard to explain, as are the benefits of forgiveness.
