Reflections of Grace 83: Life Purpose Coaching 19 – Actively Letting Go

[display_podcast] From Certified Life Coach Dixie Diamanti, Author of Climbing Out of the Box and Fifty Ways to Meet Your Lover: Actively letting go is a little more pro-active than when you are forced to let go.It’s a practice. It’s being awake.It can bring great relief. Except for the agony of it!
