1. Celebrate those you love!

    I’m inspired to write today about celebrating life while we are living. It strikes me that when we lose people we seem to suddenly celebrate their greatness privately and publicly, and this is wonderful, however, I’m always moved to think why not be inspired to celebrate those we know and love NOW, LIVING. First, so they can actually see and...

  2. let go to receive

    In my experience, as we move towards, and rest in a life we love, we have to continually let go. Because we know nothing is permanent, practicing non-attachment invites a present moment noticing, an awareness that continually asks of us to allow what is. It’s really a movement between intentional action and letting go. We can (and should) be super...

  3. Welcome Summer!

    This morning’s run found Flynn and on a trail surrounded by summer grasses with a backdrop of mountains and not too far from the ocean. The fog was holding us as we made our way through the Eucalyptus trees on the trail, Flynn running free and finding his own simple joy with sticks and berry bushes, every now and again barking...

  4. June’s Great Path of the Moon is Listening. A poem by Nancy Wood

    There is a story inside everything: wind, rain, fire. Even in the sound corn makes when it is trying to grow in the field. Rivers have great stories, so do leaves rustling on trees. Listen to old stones for information about survival. Put a pebble to your ear and listen to the tale it has to tell. What a seashell...

  5. Find Balance in Chaos

    Feeling shaken, or out of sorts? Try this little gem of a practice… Sit quietly for a moment and breathe as deeply as you can. Envision your breath reaching all the way into your lowest abdomen. Exhale even slower, extending your exhale even longer than your inhale-sending a signal to your parasympathetic nervous system that it’s OK to relax and...

  6. 10 Simple Steps to being well

    Carve out quiet time for yourself everyday. This can just be 5-10 minutes of undisturbed, deep breathing, centering time to clear the clutter of the mind. Get the chemicals out. Buy clean home and body products and buy organic produce. When possible buy directly from farmer’s at the market. This ensures the most nutrient dense (supporting local growers), cleanest, truest,...

  7. The Sky’s The Limit

    We Are Only Here for a Short Time We are on this earth for a very short time. With this perspective in mind, we can make choices to optimize this beautiful human experience and appreciate what we have and what we are creating. What do we want our contribution to be? How are we making a difference? Are we part...

  8. Healing Horses

    I had a most magical experience working with a couple of horses from All the Pretty Horses rescue in Baja. I went with a couple of friends to this very special sanctuary that is making such a huge difference in animals lives. Everybody there is loving and lovely with the animals, and the land is spectacular. Truly, it was a...

  9. The Power of Thought

    What brings you tremendous peace, fills you with joy and curls the edges of your lips up into a smile when you think of it? Close your eyes now, take a deep breath and remember for a few moments with as much detail as possible. Bring the colors, emotions, sounds, smells and even the temperature vividly into your sphere of...

  10. Let Your Love Flow

    Let your love flow like a mountain stream,
 and let your love grow with the smallest of dreams,
 and let your love show,
 and you’ll know what I mean, it’s the season…. Somehow these lyrics are flowing in my mind this morning. After all, we are sitting in the middle of love month and it’s the day after Valentines Day!...
