Self-care is the first step you take on your journey inward. You take your focus, your knowledge, your compassion and direct it to yourself.
Self-care is the understanding that no sustainable healing can happen without this foundation in place. It is the knowledge that helps you deeply relate to the messages of your body, mind, heart, and spirit so you can become the master translator of your feelings and sensations.
When a strong self-care practice is in place, you no longer depend on others to guide your actions. Through your inner study, you learn what makes you happiest and what brings on the most fear, and with this knowledge, you cultivate tools to deeply care for the most tender parts of your life.
