With the Season of Lights Holy Days, holidays — and holiDAZE for many people — this previous musing on The Healers of the Family Tree came spiraling back up into my awareness.

Holidays & the Healers of the Family Tree.
If we’re blessed with stress-free family relations, get togethers, holiday times, and New year — a charmed life, with no stresses or challenges — then we are HUGELY blessed, indeed. Celebrate it!
For many, even with the joys and blessings, there are often nerve-frazzling stresses and family dramas at this time of year.

Many of us wonder how we might not just face the challenges presenting us today, personally and collectively, but also envision and co-create a more heart-centered paradigm. In some sacred teachings and ancient wisdom traditions, we've heard that it takes both a change of mind and foremost, a change of heart.
