Welcome back to The Main Thing Podcast. I’m your host Skip Lineberg, bringing you another dose of wisdom.

Listen in as Veronica Lewis, a beacon of optimism and avid adventurer of West Virginia's wilderness, joins us to share her profound journey towards personal equilibrium and mindfulness. We navigate through her transition from being swamped by life's hurdles to her pursuit of peace through stress management and the art of mindfulness. Veronica's transformative experience not only brought her happiness and harmony but also a sense of purpose. Our conversation further explores masculine and feminine energies, shedding light on how balance can influence our daily existence. Veronica's narrative is a powerful reminder of the significance of self-care and the relentless quest for wisdom in the face of life's trials.
