Happy New Year!

So, how’s your communication going lately? It’s challenging at times especially with loved ones closest to us. Deep or Compassionate listening is a skill that one needs to learn, and practice and it seems especially hard during these turbulent times when we are focused more on our own thoughts and stresses.

I have been reading and studying some of Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings recently and it boils down to simp...

What a Joy it is to share Mindfulness and Energy tools with so many different groups.  Over the last month I did workshops with pre-teens, coaches and business owners. My main presentation was on EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique and how to easily integrate this amazing mind body tool in to your life.

Sometimes folks think EFT is too hard to learn, often they don’t know what to say and forget the basic recipe.  Since the Holi...

Dear Friends,

No need to figure it all out….feels that way when we are making changes like job shifts, moving, investments of time and money and  big life decisions or even sometimes small ones.  

Most folks are focused on what can go wrong and our stress response and nervous system are there to protect us from extinction!!   But what if we do make the wrong decision? Many freeze and stay in fear, toxic worry and the...

Hard to remember this summer already….how quickly if fades away and glides into fall.  As much as I seem to resist the fall once I really embrace it, feels just right.  

Mums, pumpkins, light jackets and sweaters and a fire on chilly days feels safe and inviting. 

Through ritual I want to pause and reflect on this summer as I do with each season.  Embracing my new home and enjoying the lake life, beach, concerts, b...

I must admit I do watch CNN for my news briefs but my husband and I switched to PBS News Hour to hold on to our sanity during these chaotic times.  On PBS they have a segment at the end that highlights creative positive resources and folks that are facilitating amazing ideas, crafts and happenings.  These wonderful stories make me smile and get me thinking about how so many of us have been lost in Mindful Sadness when there is...

Recently an extended family member has been going through an emotional, spiritual and physical healing crisis.  Happily he is now recovering.

Family and friends have gathered around him sending loving prayers, healing energy and guiding support.

What I have observed and know to be true is that Love is always surrounding us in our moments of doubt, despair and fear.   The synergy of Compassion, Hope, Light and Grace sustains...

Synchronicity – Carl Jung coined the term and according to Deepak Chopra Synchronicity comes from the word Chronis – or time.  Synchronous has the same meaning as co incidence-many incidents and improbable events that come together in time. Often it has to do with an intention you had.  The event is meaningful to you and increases your awareness and enhances your intuitive experiences - A connection with your own soul.

Last Fall I moved to a new home and I am spending my first summer here. Mostly on my Porch…….

I always wanted a porch like this one. I sit here with my friends and family. I watch the world go by, wave hello to the occasional neighbor walking their dog, or kids bicycling but mostly I look at nature. Somehow I feel I am channeling Andy Rooney at this moment but you get the picture.

I remember growing up and living in Queens N...

Dear Friends,

Worry, worry, worry, there is no end to worrying. The mind is always searching for something to do.

We worry because we fear failure, fear the unknown, fear success or fear change. Toxic worry brings us out of the PRESENT moment regretting the past and worrying about the future. I should of, could of, would have said this or done that. Can I have a do over? Or nope I am not putting myself through this growth sp...
