Your Words Matter

We are triggered more by telling someone what is right in our life than by sharing what’s wrong. What’s wrong is basically our normal lens of perception these days.

2020 is the time to renew and strengthen your commitment to self care…

My Journey with Yoga

It was totally on accident...but maybe this was always the plan. I had always been attracted to yoga and the healing arts. As yoga became more popular and I would see pictures in magazines or commercials with people doing yoga poses, it just felt like home. I daydreamed about going to Costa Rica and doing …

Enheartenment and Loving Dogs

What I’ve learned from loving dogs:  From Lulu I learned to see my inherent goodness. Through her eyes, I could see my essence of love, my birthright. She was the most beautiful mirror. And wow, it sure broke my heart to lose her by my side. Lu came to me when I was in a …
