Go with the Flow, Even if You are Scared.

Good morning my friends. I am in Paradise; Kauai.  Certainly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. I am with friends, some I’ve traveled with before and some a few new ones. We are warrior women. Two of us have had complete lung transplants, one is a cancer survivor, and went from survivor […]

Please Forgive Me.

Many of us are haunted by someone who we find just impossible to forgive. Those are the ones that we think about in the middle of the night, and the ones that pop into our heads just as we are about to enjoy a perfect weekend. It’s easy to mindgrind and replay past arguments, things […]

Your Bright Shiny Life – Claim it.

It’s Sunday morning. Superbowl day. I have my laptop out by the pool, surrounded by birds of paradise.  I just finished teaching a yoga class. I have a phone interview scheduled in a bit for a friends podcast. Why, oh why, am I living this very charmed life at this moment? Because I chose it. […]

A Community for All of Us.

A week ago I took my third and final jump across country from one coast to the other. I wrote my last blog two weeks ago in some pretty darned chilly temperatures in New York, surrounded by boxes and packing tape. Today’s blog comes to you from our new digs in sunny Southern California. My […]

The Best Present Ever.

Your biggest Christmas present is right here, right now. And it will always be with you. Your present. In this moment, those of us who are sick are alive. Those of us who have lost people and are heartbroken are okay. Your present is the only place to be. When we look back and try […]


Life can be heinously complicated, so complicated sometimes that the very breath can get knocked out of us. Sometimes it’s the simplest things; a mantra, a hug, a cup of tea, that helps us remember that we are allowed and maybe even required to lay some of our load down. None of us can manage […]

Trust Thyself

My last blog touched on the topic of unwanted touching and open bathrobes, but there is something else I want to add for this go ‘round. Current events provoke conversations. Even in this “awakening” I still hear women still doubting themselves; wondering whether they had imagined or exaggerated things when they were approached, leered at, […]

The Most Wonderful Time of The Year.

Parent: Honey, kiss everyone good night and off to bed. Kid: I don’t want to. Parent: Don’t be rude, kiss our guests goodnight. ***** Kid: I don’t want to hug Uncle Tim. Parent: Come on, he always takes really good care of you on your birthdays, let him know you appreciate it. ***** Teen: I […]

Don’t Do Anything…until you read this.

Good Monday morning, my friends. This is a Public Service Announcement that will change your life. Sit your tuckus down, because we are going to meditate. What? You can’t sit still? I don’t care. What, you can’t stop thinking fourteen things at once? What if I told you that doesn’t matter right now? Just sit […]
