It’s time friends. It’s time to create some intention for 2017. Not just any intention, but the BIG MAMA intention. The kind of intention that ROCKS YOUR WORLD. The kind that causes you to take action you wouldn’t have last year. The kind that brings butterflies swirling around in your stomach – even in formation.

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.

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.

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
