In 2008, after spending a year training to try out for the most prestigious ski instructor team in the country, I walked away in tears, shaken after 5 days of evaluation and putting my all into it. My thoughts were, “Why did I bother? What was the point? What am I going to do now?

For the last two years I didn’t think I’d ever be able to run again. And, for the last 10 years, I thought the sometimes lack of energy and long recovery time I had was either the aging process or the affects from a 2 year virus in my head – or a combination of

In the two weeks since our 2016 presidential election, many people have been experiencing fear and anger. I can understand why given the words of inequality, prejudices, and disregard for our precious planet. My heart feels for every person who is experiencing fear or anger or separation.

When I contracted a 2 year virus in my head in 2005 after traveling to India, and not knowing why I was sick for the first 6 months, I fought hard, thinking, “I’ll get better – keep pushing, it’s just a passing phase.” I had been strong, full of energy and in the best shape

I recently met Barbara at a Death and Dying Retreat (it was actually really joyful!) held by Nancy Ruby of Yoga Motion and Maribeth Goodman of The Goodman Group. Barbara’s presence is like a light bulb that doesn’t go off. She has a spirit and energy that defies her 83 year old body. One that begs

It started when I was 8 years old. Eating sugar that is. My mom, bless her heart, wanted us to be healthy, so we had no sugar in the house. Growing up in California, where aluminum can collection brought in some cash, I would collect enough to buy a Snickers (my favorite) at the local

Harriet Lerner, relationship expert and psychotherapist, didn’t start off as a best selling author. In fact, quite the opposite. In her Topeka Kansa home, she sat in long years of frustration, sorrow, and wanting to give up, hunched over her gray typewriter (computers weren’t around yet) with scissors and scotch tape as her cutting-and-pasting editing tools.
