Essences of Nature: Guilt Cocktails

Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

Shamanic Wisdom: The Sweat Lodge Ceremony

Jan Engels-Smith

Essences of Nature: Authenticity

Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

Who are you? What do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you see your physical characteristics — your height, your weight, and the current condition your body is in? Do you see your emotional characteristics — happiness, sadness, or anger?
