Diva Musing: Peaceful Warrior…

Standard

Several year ago I got hooked on Dan Millman’s books on “The Peaceful Warrior”… Subsequently I completed 2 summers of training in Shamanic Studies and Journeying on the Arizona desert with my Juicy Crone cohort.  We had a blast.  So between the Shamanism and Peaceful Warrior guidance I updated my thoughts on this topic today.  I hope you enjoy….Namaste, The Queen Cronista….
