This week we are sharing a perspective that may be new to you, may be controversial and definitely needs to be heard.  Join us as we dive into a discussion of toxic masculine and feminine energy.  We look at how it is impacting our world, our relationships and what we can do to recognize it and change it.   This is a topic that my guest is absolutely passionate about and she walks us through energy gone wrong and how to right it.
