"To fully empower our place in life and our engagement in life, we must first cultivate and strengthen the center from which we engage with life. When we act from our center, fueled by love, we start to harness a force that is beyond what we've know is possible. The development and intention of this material is an invitation to develop a foundational consciousness." ~Robert Gonzaes
