December 2017 Oasis Odyssey

by Leslie Ackles

By the Numbers


During the hustle and bustle of this season I wanted to share with you three simple practices to hopefully bring calm, peace and presence into your holiday.


When I start becoming consumed by my ‘to dos’ at this time of year, my husband always asks me: “Leslie, please remind me… What is it that you teach?” He supplies the gift of a question to bring me back to myself and to what matters most.


My gift to you is a way to discover that calm, peace and presence amidst the busyness of the season.


My Gift: By the Numbers 5, 3 and 1.*


  • For 5 minutes a day, meditate or consciously breathe.


  • Write down 3 good things that happened each day.


  • Do 1 act of kindness each day.*


Give this gift to yourself and watch as it spills over to envelope your family and friends.


Give you and your family

the gift of peace and calm for the holidays.
