NINE STAR HOLIDAY DYNAMICS WITH ROSALIE PRINZIVALLI

Episode 031 - Nine Star Holiday Dynamics with Rosalie Prinzivalli.jpg

You may notice that this episode is a bit off schedule. That's because it's our first holiday podcast this year, so we wanted to get it to you before Thanksgiving! This is a very special episode, because we'll be talking with one of my closest friends and one of my first and most amazing mentors, Rosalie Prinzivalli. The holidays are meant to be loving time spent with friends and family, but they can actually be very stressful, since we're all different people with different needs! Understanding the nine star ki dynamics can help us to handle this stress and actually enjoy peaceful, grounded holidays during this season, and Rosalie is an expert. Let's see what she has to say. :)

Hopefully each of you are feeling less stressed about going into the holiday season, thanks to Rosalie's advice! We're very grateful to Rosalie for sharing her insight. :)

Be sure to sign up for the Holistic Spaces newsletter for more tips and advice on feng shui, green design and holistic living, around the holidays and all year! You'll receive a 10% off coupon for signing up, just in time to save on holistic gifts!

As always, we love to hear from you with comments or questions. You can send them in here and may even be featured in our Q&A Sunday series!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! We're incredibly grateful for you every day. :)
