I want to write a special massive dose of gratitude to Nicole, not only is she one of my dear friends but what most of you may not know is that she's also been my coach over the last 6 weeks in her life coaching program. Nicole has been masterfully:

*helping me to reclaim my power
*guiding me back to my true vision for my life
*providing me practices and inquiries to get grounded and aligned with my truth
*unlocking strength and insight that felt dormant
*navigating with me a new sense of self that's both softer and more expanded and true
*giving me permission to trust myself and my intuition This past year has been the most tumultuous year of my life ...getting married, moving, launching The Pleasure Path's signature offering Queens of Pleasure, letting go of most of my family in our current way of relating, leaving a program and tribe of 150 women when I felt the leader was out of integrity, doing deep healing work with my teachers, dissolving Executive Sutra, letting go of all yoga teaching and reiki healing clients, changing my name to Violet... I've never felt so much loss and I've never felt such a call to belong to myself, to get clear on what I want to create, and to be at choice. Nicole has helped me to find my power internally and connect to earth and God...to celebrate who I am versus running away or jumping out...to persevere and build faith. On an external level, with her loving support I've served 59 women into Queens of Pleasure and just launched a year-long program Queens Club which is almost half-way enrolled . I feel I am doing the work in the world I'm meant to do, work which inspires me and supports me--work I want to do for the rest of my life. No doubt I feel fear and trembling, which I'm finally honoring versus rushing ahead...and I also feel deep gratitude and awe at the teachers which show up for me. Even though it's been the most lonely year it's also been the most supportive in a paradoxical way. Nicole your guidance and wisdom are incredible and I'm so grateful for you !!!
