My first experience of the liminal space was when I told my partner 15 years ago that he wasn’t right for me and he walked out the door. The rock in my gut told me I was in the liminal space. Liminal comes from the latin word “limens,” which means “threshold.” We’re literally on a

“You cannot truly see and be aware of the beauty of all life, or express the depths of love and compassion for others, until you have first seen your own sublime beauty and expressed love and compassion for yourself.” ~Ramtha I was teaching the rewiring technique to a client last week, when we got to

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

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.

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

Maybe you’ve experienced this before: you set out with good intentions – being kind to your mom, having patience with your child, being kind and accepting of people in your life, committed to meditation every day, enjoying the mundane like washing the dishes or mowing the lawn, but something happens.  Instead, you find yourself saying something reactive and

I was wandering from my campsite on the Big Sur coast, crossing Highway 1 to take in the sunset before settling in for the night, when I saw someone walking the highway with a backpack. I couldn’t help myself. I asked, “Are you backpacking Hwy 1?” He replied, “Well, ya! I was hiking the Pacific

I finished some gentle yoga on the floor of the cabin, being careful to not irritate my already painful hips. When I sat up, the words came through loud and clear, like a church bell on Sunday morning, “You need to leave the retreat.” I began to sob. “NO, NO, NO!” I yelled back at

Six months ago, while spending a few days at a cabin in Big Sur, California, I had complete clarity that this was the cabin I’d spend a month meditating and in silence in the spring of 2016. I’d been knowing it was time for this length of retreat for awhile, but I wasn’t sure where
