I decided to listen to my own CD yesterday. Driving home from a long distance errand, I put the disk in and was surprised at how it calmed me down and lifted me up--support I needed in that moment.
I wrote This Little Light: The Gift of Christmas a couple of years ago, and I hadn't listened to it in quite some time. In addition to my work as a conflict and communication skills trainer, I'm also a singer, and holiday carols are some of my favorite songs to sing. And, I like to write. So I combined these two loves in This Little Light--stories and songs of the season.
If you subscribe to my Ki Moments newsletter, published separately from this blog, you've seen the special I'm offering for the holidays. It combines This Little Light with my 2018 calendar. The calendar is filled with original photography from my travels and reminders to center throughout the year. It's goes on a desktop, and each month you change to a new photograph overlaid with a centering thought.
It's often the case that one of the happiest times of year can also be the most stressful. My hope is that wherever you are on that continuum these gifts will help you minimize stress, invite more joy, and find your light... in this and every season.
Here's wishing you and your family a holiday filled with calm, presence and plenty of Christmas spirit!
