From “Why am I here?” To Cupcakes and Unicorns: 10 Actions in Waking Up

PRESENTED ON FEB 08, 2018
IN KNOXVILLE @ VOL 26

Dr. Kate Flynn knows more than a little about what it’s like to be stuck in the muck and mire of WTF, while dreaming of the Land of Cupcakes and Unicorns. Through sheer desperation and the desire for a better way, she’s learned a thing or two about leaving the past behind and living from her heart. Dr.Kate doesn’t live there permanently yet, but she’s caught more than a glimpse of this magical place and offers a roadmap so that you too may find your way there.
