“You are all already perfect, until you’re not.” - Hilary Garivaltis
“We disrupt [our enoughness, our perfection] with doubt and fear and choices and habits that don’t serve us well. It doesn’t take away from our deserving, or our humanness, though.” --Andrea Catherine
“We need pitta people to lead, to step up... to follow through...to take action...and do so fearlessly. Kapha’s going to be the one who’s like, ‘slow down, we need to think this through a little more.’ Vata’s... throwing the idea way out there, and pitta’s like, ‘yea let’s go!” -- Andrea Catherine
“As individuals who have different dispositions, we can offer our strengths to other people to help them find balance, to help them nurture and nourish their needs.” -- Kelsey Starr
