I’ve been camping with my mom since I was in the womb. It was her first camping experience EVER – pregnant with me sleeping on a hard foam mattress in the desert of Southern California (you can tell where I get my hardiness from). We’ve been nature lovers since and jump at the chance of

I’m often asked, “How do you do it?” “IT” can mean: how I work from other countries, travel, or have such incredible health. The latest being, “Your skin looks so great for the amount of time you spend outdoors, how do you do it?” I’m going to give you a little back story on the

I can’t say exactly what a miracle is, but I would quantify what I witnessed last week (along with what I witness in my practice when someone sees them self as whole and complete for the first time) as a miracle. And not just one, but several a day, including in myself. One year ago,

Making a big decision is not what most people think – it’s not “figuring it out.” It’s actually the opposite. Last week I had a big decision to make, or at least it felt like one. I hardly slept the night before. I had 24 hours to decide (no pressure or anything :). It was to
