So, they launched a daring quest to make their dreams come true in Seven Pillars of radical self-care and transformation: Health & Wellness, Spirituality & Happiness, Romance & Sex, Friends & Family, Creativity & Innovation (formerly known as work), Adventure & Discovery, and Sanctuary & Beauty.

You’ll learn:

  • How to redefine and rebrand the middle of life
  • Why body love needs to reign supreme
  • The secrets of Quantum Love
  • How to gather your “framily”
  • What happens when your creative spirit soars.
