Staying Present – While Worrying About The Future

Staying Present – While Worrying About The Future

If you are trying to stay present, while worrying about the future, you have probably noticed that it’s not possible. You cannot be in two places at once! I’m addressing this pattern with several people and decided to write about it. This time of year, many of us are planning things to come – going […]

Finding Inspiration.. The Spark Of Change

Finding Inspiration.. The Spark Of Change

Inspiration swirls around you, even if you aren’t looking for it, or needing it, especially when you’re open to change. I was in NYC for a music conference with Lee Carroll and Alioune Guisse, where inspiration flowed from a firehose, so much so, you couldn’t take it all in. But if you were open and […]

My New Year’s Wish – Make 2024 More Spiritual

My New Year’s Wish – Make 2024 More Spiritual

A New Year’s wish came to me in meditation – to make life in 2024 more spiritual. It’s not just for me, it’s a wish for everyone. As we shakily face the wars in the Middle East and Ukraine, tense politics in the US, global climate crisis and our own need to keep an even […]

You can’t overestimate the impact of your positive thoughts and actions.

Hurray For Manners!

Hurray For Manners!

Just when I thought the art of manners was lost, feeling despair over the rise in violence, watching rudeness on social media, as if it’s a source of pride, the opposite is shown. Manners are still alive and well! It took going to Lee County, Alabama, home of the University of Auburn and Opelika to […]

Understanding Post-Traumatic Growth

Understanding Post-Traumatic Growth

Growth, after experiencing trauma, is some of the most important, profound and life altering recovery. It’s something you have likely experienced but didn’t know there’s a term for it. I’ve known it myself and have been encouraging it in all aspects of my work. In conducting training on Trauma Informed Care for professionals, there was […]

Setting Boundaries – Having Those Hard Conversations

Setting Boundaries – Having Those Hard Conversations

Boundaries are a necessity and require a hard conversation with those who breach them. Often you have to learn this when you least expect it, when you’re vulnerable and wanting to protect your new growth, like the tender leaves of Spring. I see this with people who are launching something new. They have stopped using […]

How’s Your Transformation Going?

How’s Your Transformation Going?

Transformation is in the air with Spring, Easter, Passover, Ramadan and Vaisakh all happening at the same time. No matter your beliefs, there is an urge to reemerge from darkness with new energy and clarified intention. How are you responding to this push toward transformation? Spiritual traditions tell stories of release from persecution to resurrection, […]

Do You Have Courage – To Be Your Own Hero?

Do You Have Courage – To Be Your Own Hero?

Courage comes to mind when thinking about the recent political actions that are being taken. Alvin Bragg is my new hero. But looking around, there are many everyday heroes. My nephew is standing up for what’s right in the Navajo nation, I’ve seen Lee speak out at meetings about what needs to change and I’ve […]
