She's a frequent guest blogger at Maria Shriver's site for Architects of Change and has led sold-out retreats combining surfing and shamanism in Hawaii and a sacred pachydermal pilgrimage to Thailand. She loves to help others find their own feel good so they can live courageously and enthusiastically. Visit Sarah at followyourfeelgood.com.
