Do you know these critics? PLUS a Shine! Mandala Template

New World Library sent me a review copy of Succulent Wild Love: Six Powerful Habits for Feeling More Love More Often written by one of my favorite authors SARK and her fiance Dr. John Waddell. I first discovered SARK over 20 years ago. It was the year after I graduated from college and I had moved 1800 miles from New Hampshire to Colorado. I’ll never forget it!

The most magical and sparkly SARK …

Spreading Blessings for Peace and Joy When the participants from our 100 Mandalas Community were asked to create a hamsa coloring page for this project, they were asked to think of YOU the person downloading the coloring book.
