On April 22nd, 1970, John McConnell, Gaylord Nelson, and Denis Hayes planted the seeds for the eco-fest that now has taken on epic proportions as the need for environmental awareness has reached a crucial level. Earth Day, according to Hayes, it is “the largest secular holiday in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every…

My parents have been gone from the Earth Plane for what seems like forever and simultaneously, only a heartbeat ago. My dad died from Parkinson’s Disease on April 3, 2008, and my mom joined him on November 26, 2010. The medical cause of her death was Congestive Heart Failure, but I fully believe that she…

  Had my annual checkup today with my cardiologist Dr. Eric Gejer. Coming up on my 5th cardiaversary on June 12. it is a day that I celebrate the death of one aspect of my life and the birth of another. Back then, I didn’t hold my own heart sacred as I did others. It was…

  Most people I know see me through the sweetness and light lens. After all, I’m the Bliss Mistress who delights in helping people lead rich, full, juicy lives, slurping the juice from the bottom of the glass, putting their whole selves in. According to a friend, I have glitter coming out of my pores. I might…

Often, I ask for a message of guidance before going to sleep. The Sleep Faerie always delivers. After a long week filled with exciting activities and divine interactions (more to follow this week), I went to sleep early. The words that came through loud and clear were “Bare Boldly”. I know it ties in directly…

Today would have been my mother Selma’s 95th birthday. Hard to imagine that I have been honoring her arrival on the planet coming up on nine years after she ascended from it. She is still such a presence in my day to day. My mind still sees her, my ears still hear her and my heart…

This morning, I saw the words ‘growing edge’ on social media. I was led to it after reading an article about full presence when sitting with someone going through life stuff, rather than giving unsolicited advice. After perusing and nodding along in agreement; as a therapist, that is my M.O., I found myself exploring the…

There are days when I feel completely impatient, wanting things to move at a faster pace than they do. Frustrated when I set an intention, do the leg work and then need to surrender while the proverbial cake is still baking. I know, I am mixing metaphors here, but you get the idea. I could…

  On my way home from the gym (a place that I consider my temple, ashram, and healing space), I was listening to an interview on Fresh Air with Rev. Barbara Brown Taylor, a sister clergy person. An ordained Episcopal priest, she left the pulpit to become a professor of religion at Piedmont College in Demorest,…

This oft-spoken statement rippled through my mind yesterday as I was with people whose daughter/niece/granddaughter had died 11 years ago, at age five, of a brain tumor. Throughout the day, I also chanced to speak with others who had either lost loved ones, or they themselves had been diagnosed with cancer. I chatted with a mother whose…
