Our Need for Self Love

“You tug at my heart and make my life sing, I found a new person through journeys you bring,
me here at the crossroads where I have been found, just waiting and waiting for you to come ‘round. 
I’m grateful and humbled to come to this place, of self-realization, no matter the take… 
I’ve found my soul’s bounty, more greater and dearer…
I then realized, that it’s me in the mirror.” 

~ Andrew Pacholyk MS L.Ac (excerpt from his new book, Lead Us To A Place ~ your spiritual journey through life’s seasons)
