The 5th Way, among so many things, has given me a deep understanding and trust that I am not alone in this world and that we are all connected in ways beyond comprehension or explanation. The experiences I’ve had and the connections I’ve made through this work have made a profound impact on my life. Through this community and our sacred space, I’ve found a sense of belonging and self worth that I had never been able to find on my own or even through traditional avenues of personal growth. I’ve reconnected with my heart, body and spirit, and with the world around me in deep and meaningful ways. In less than a year, I’ve healed long-buried trauma, found inspiration and focus to drive my career in an entirely new direction, helped others find clarity and grounding in their process, defined my boundaries, become healthier on the inside and out (and lost 30 pounds!) and made friends for life. The support and love provided through this experience has helped me release the things that no longer serve me and see that when we’re in alignment with ourselves, anything is possible.
