Imagine you are at a great Halloween party –

  • What mask and costume can you remove to reveal the true you underneath?
  • Or what mask and costume can you don to express some hidden aspect of yourself?
  • Who or what appears to be a negative in your life, but really holds some hidden gift?

Let me know what you discover. I’d love to support you to reap a rich autumn harvest.
