“The only way out is in and through” ~Sara Avant Stover
Because of my mission and work, I have the beautiful privilege of connecting daily with many heart-open and soulful women of all walks of life. This is a privilege I don’t take for granted and also one for which I’m immensely grateful. After some years of practicing openness, without needing to be a rocket scientist, I’ve found it increasingly easier to tune in to the deeper truth that shines out from a woman’s heart.
Deep down it’s always love but on the surface sometimes it manifests itself as pain, as joy, as courage, or sometimes as hurt. For some women this essence manifests as a yearning for freedom and yet for a few others: as a restful and alive “knowing”, a rare mixture of truth and love deeply rooted in the experience (not just the concept) of who she really is. Sara easily fits into this last group of women.
I find her to be wise beyond her years and her work as deep, selfless and beautiful as any I’ve seen. It is because of these reasons that I chose her to end what has been such an amazing year for our show, and I did say “our show” because this show is not mine, it really belongs more to you than to me. We’ve had some incredibly inspiring guests and I feel beyond grateful to have hosted all of them. I also feel the roaring vibration of what’s to come for next year and let me tell you, it is awesome.
Today is no exception to our inspiring lineup, you will find Sara to be a breath of truth, compassion and love and I really can’t wait to share her wisdom and presence with all of you. May you always remember to listen to your inner voice and allow it to gently and consciously guide your heart. Here’s to a beautiful end to 2012.
