Cultivating Loving Kindness Toward Yourself

Happy LOVE Day!

I wanted to send out a little gift for you on this day that focuses on our hearts. 

Below, please find a guided meditation that leads you down a path of LOVINGKINDNESS for YOURSELF. Because love begins from WITHIN.

I don't necessarily see Valentine's Day as being about romantic love, but about the capacity of our hearts to experience the joy, peace, and connection of any kind of love--with friends, family, or community. But MOST IMPORTANTLY, with ourselves. I hope you enjoy it!

I also wanted to send a reminder that we offer both digital and paper gift certificates for massage and acupuncture--so you can share the gift of whole body health with your loved ones. We are in the office today until 5:00, or online anytime for you to purchase a gift certificate. Here's a link to do so:

Cinnamon is the HEART herb in Chinese medicine. Enjoy some of these recipes for incorporating cinnamon into your life. (added bonus: cinnamon also boosts immune system function!)

Enjoy your day, and I look forward to seeing you soon!

In Love,

Julie
