Thanksgiving Song

In honor of the day, I am sharing one of my favorite songs with you. It was written by David Roth, and my favorite rendition of it is by Anne Hills on her Woman of a  Calm Heart  CD.

May the Light of Love

As we come around to take our places at the table,
A moment to remember and reflect upon our wealth,
Here’s to loving friends and family, …


Gratitude Creates Happiness

I was delighted to see that the Washington Post Health and Science section this week had a wonderful article written by Carolyn Butler about the latest research on gratitude – specifically expressing and receiving gratitude. It is a short article chock full of wonderful facts and ideas as to how to encourage gratitude, as well as how it affects our lives.  I think the opening paragraphs say it all:



Gratitude Time

It is the week to count our blessings. It is official – Thanksgiving Day and week is all about slowing down and enjoying good food and good company with family and friends. I like to host the day myself – and I have family and friends who somehow manage to make it almost every year. So I am starting this week with a tribute to that circle.

First, there is …


Resting and Digesting Through Walking

I have just completed a long string of workshops that were very close together. All of them were workshops that inspire me – where the best of who I am got to shine. However, after being focused for so long a time in a leadership role, the result is that I have needed (and chosen to) explore slowing down and ‘walking my talk’ – literally.

This morning I bundled up …


Listening Touch

As Day four of Cellular Resonance – Radiant Health completes, I am reflecting on how important listening touch is for the healing process. We just completed a day of practicing the art of listening to different structures in the brain, starting with the thalamus. It was a transformative process in unique ways for everyone. The exciting part is that everyone was able to listen with their touch – hands-on practitioners …


Of Trees and Healing Movement

Stretched out on a mat next to the big window – allowing myself to slow down for the first time all day.

My eyes close gently, resting back in my head softly.

The trees outside call to me – swaying in the wind.

Hearing the call, I let my inner wave motions join with them.

Vibration – sounds awaken new waves and open new pathways.

Delicious sensation leads me to …


Remembering Healthy Resonance

End of Day One of Cellular Resonance – Radiant Health and I am struck, once again, by how easy and replenishing it can be to be moving, breathing and slowing down my system with a group of like minded people. It was delicious. Emilie is in rare form and it has been such a pleasure to collaborate with her again this year.

We began by using two simple breaths and …


The Resonance has Begun

Emilie arrived late this afternoon and already we have begun the process of sharing and creating together. Every year this gets richer and deeper. She always brings her gifts…

Fluid waves….slowing down to a resonance that is healthy, restful…

Breathing deeply…opening to the unknown without fear….

Expanding beyond the rut of daily existence to a place that feels new yet familiar…

Sleep well – we’ll see you tomorrow!


The Magic of a Fall Morning

This is a post where a series of photos is worth a thousand words – what a magical morning!



Out my back door I go – the lake calls me


Her magic calls me closer…


Breathing in the day as the sun rises over the mist on the water…


Cellular Resonance: Radiant Health is Coming This Friday


As I prepare for the upcoming workshop with Emilie Conrad, I have found myself dreaming about cellular resonance. Different ideas have been flooding in as I contemplate how to complement Emilie’s fluid movement, breath and sound explorations with non-invasive hands on protocols. This is a rich, creative time period for me because I feel as though the universe is informing me in every aspect of my life about what I …
