Sharing My Practice on CP Square - July 2012

I am really honored an excited to be sharing my practice for the next 2 weeks on Cp Square. The structure is that for 10 days, I check in twice a day and respond to questions, share what I am doing, muse on topics I am thinking about. I love to write because of the reflection and find I always get new insights from the process. I hope others do as well.  Join me.
