And it is from this connection to the Inner Self that right relationship to the world (career) occurs.” – Jerry Thomas

“A major goal of spiritual practice is to clear our mental space of the intellectual and emotional garbage we have been collecting since childhood, and to provide space for the experience of true relaxation and enjoyment.
