166: Holiday Spirit: Regaining Peace with Traditions


It seems that most everyone is in agreement that the holidays have lost their spirit, their true meaning.  In my meditations I have been told that the spirit is veiled but very much alive.  To that end I have decided to spend the next eight days helping listeners reconnect with the true meaning of the holidays.

Plus my gift to the listeners at the end of the episode.
