I’m not generally a blog type of girl. I prefer to be working with people one-on-one or in small groups. But every so often the writing bug bites, and I need to share something that concerns or inspires me. Usually, I write about personal experiences that I hope my readers can identify with and find ways to apply the lessons I’m learning to their own lives.

The Power of Choice – In 2015 the word I chose to work with for the year was Trust. For 2016 the word was Power. In both cases the Universe complied with my implicit request and brought me lessons and gifts suffused with those qualities…

Thank You to My Teachers, Thank You to my Students – Someone asked me recently why I want to do the work I do. What a great question! My answer was that I have had some incredibly profound, healing, and spiritually connective experiences in my life, and I want to help other people have similar revelations…

Lessons of a Sick HealerIn the last several days I have learned some interesting lessons about being sick. The first day or two I was very frustrated! The depression, allergies, and cold I’ve been battling have been kicking my butt…

Leadership Through Vulnerability – On January Second, 2015, in front of witnesses, I looked directly into my own eyes and told my reflection, “I love me,” in a clear, compassionate voice.While that seems like a simple act, I’m sure that anybody who has tried it will agree that doing so is anything but easy…

Breaking Through Part II – In my last post, I wrote about how the Breakthrough program helped me to further develop my sense of trust in the Universe and myself.I just want to take a moment to share how the last week of the program and the final concert continued to change my life…

Breaking Through – 2015 was a breakthrough year for me. I have faced a lot of fears. I had been on three months of mental health leave from my full-time job…

A Lesson in Trust – Some of the online groups I belong to have a tradition of each person selecting a “word of the year.” It causes each of us to think about what we want to bring into our lives in the coming year. The word I chose for 2015 is “Trust.” Oh boy, did I get what I asked for…

How I Finally Learned that Art is Fun! – I consider myself to be a performing artist to some degree. I love to sing and dance, and from the age of 10, my home away from home was the local community theater. I’ve never thought of myself as a visual artist.

Bridges – As many of you know, I am in a transition period in my life, a bridge so to speak. This has been an incredibly healing and powerful weekend. I need to write about it to help me continue processing what I have experienced…

Holding Space – A Sacred Gift – I’ve noticed the expression “holding space” to be gaining popularity in the last few years. I’ve heard it so many times, and the practice comes so naturally to me, that I was surprised this term has caused confusion for a lot of people when it is mentioned in passing. Let’s start with some examples of what holding space looks like…

Dreaming Big – As usual, I sat down to write an entirely different post. As usual, I’m going to take the advice of writing about what’s on my mind and in my heart in this moment. In the last few weeks, I’ve felt as if the ground beneath my feet was constantly moving, and I didn’t know which way to look…

Learning to Allow – I am taking a journey right now. Well, I consider all of life a journey, but this is a special segment. For the month of June I am taking an online course called the Journey of Yes with the amazing Stephanie Gagos. I have been on similar journeys with her before.  Six days a week she gives us a prompt to help us embrace whatever we are saying Yes to. This time around the thing I am saying Yes to is Allowing…

Thoughts on Grief – I have been thinking a lot about grief lately…I’ve been thinking about it because I have been grieving…

Finding Solutions through Empathy and Compassion – I’ve been thinking a lot about empathy and compassion in the last few days and what these ideas mean to different people. I’m not going into all the variations I have encountered. I just want to share what my definitions are as a stepping stone to connection and problem-solving…

Happy Awakening Day – Just over a year ago, April 14th, 2014, I had a revelation that changed my life forever. My journey has led me through confusion and pain since then, but it has also brought me a greater state of wholeness than I have ever known. Today I am reflecting on what I have been through and what healing still needs to be done, but mostly I am CELEBRATING!

In Memoriam – I had planned on posting this piece sooner, but it hasn’t been the right time. However, it is important to me to post it – to get it out there. It’s important to me for two reasons: one, I want to share the service I wrote so that others can use it…

Have Courage. Speak Out. – I received the above message in early March while meditating with Sri Bhagavan and Sri Amma during a live webcast through Oneness India. It very much speaks to what I am working through right now…

Holy Communion – I have been through a whole hell of a lot since I last made an attempt at blogging in September. Now that I am ready to share my story of the difficult time I have had in the intervening months, I thought that my first blog post back…

The Gift of Tears – Some see tears as a sign of weakness. I see tears as a gift.

Beginning – Well, I finally have the new site up and running through WordPress. It was an interesting week in the making the transition from the old host, but I think it will be well worth it.
