The Uni-verse Has Got Your Back! All You Have To Do Is LISTEN!

WE all have lessons to learn while we are here…and as the saying goes ‘if you’re not growing, you’re dying.’ These are harsh truths and I hope they shock you into action. As we journey through our lives we often hear the Uni-verse whispering to us: WAKE UP, WAKE UP! Many people say: “I can’t… Continue Reading →

It's All In The Present Moment!

It’s all in the present moment… ”The human will, that force unseen, the offspring of a deathless soul, can hew a way to any goal, though walls of granite intervene. Be not impatient in delay, but wait as one who understands; when spirit rises and commands, the gods are ready to obey.” -James Allen This… Continue Reading →

The Times Are Asking For Radical Authenticity!

Wow! Life lessons are continuous, ever changing and plentiful right now! Anyone else relate to that? This last month has been like I’m on the bullet train of growth and discovery. I took on a new full-time job, started traveling to New York weekly to teach at Golden Bridge Yoga, and just in case that… Continue Reading →

The Art Of Relationships!

I am embarking on a trip to Australia. It’s time for my husband to meet my parents and extended family. It’s a long story why they haven’t all met yet. It’s to do with immigration and visas and sickness and life and death. But that’s another blog, or ten! I have been contemplating the art of… Continue Reading →

From Resolution To Revolution!

We are already half way through January. Have you broken your New Years resolutions already? Don’t worry if you have, you’re not alone! I gave up making resolutions a few years ago. I found they set me up to fail. I made crazy ones. They often brought up guilt, shame and feelings of unworthiness. I… Continue Reading →

Authenticity!

One of my favorite quotes right now is, “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” It’s no surprise that these words of wisdom come from the great Irish novelist, playwright & poet, Oscar Wilde. Oscar Fingal O’Flaherty Wills Wilde was not just a literary her -, he was a great wit.  His comment here is… Continue Reading →

Appreciate The Angels In Your Life!

This time of year is very special to me. In the northern hemisphere we just celebrated Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, honoring the darkness and the unknown in our lives. In the southern hemisphere, Summer Solstice is celebrated – the sun energy increasing our energy, vitality and zest for living our lives… Continue Reading →

Don’t Believe Your ASSumptions!

I know some people think of actor Clint Eastwood as gun-toting Dirty Harry, as in “Do ya feel lucky, Punk? Well, do ya?” But think about him a bit more and you discover a rare and talented man – an actor, a musician, a writer and a director of sensitive, high quality movies. A genius…. Continue Reading →

Gratitude For It ALL!

You’re in a tunnel. A big steam train is bearing down on you. Probably, it’s curtains. But maybe not. If you’re quick, you might just step aside. A miracle you survived? Not really. A natural instinct? Positive action? Yes and Yes. It’s no secret. No matter how gloomy life gets, there is always that stunning… Continue Reading →

Occupy Your Own Life First!

There is a lot happening in the world. For every second that passes, there is roughly one birth and one death. Hard to wrap your head around really, isn’t it? We are experiencing more in an hour today than our ancestors did in one month a hundred years ago. Are we happier with all this… Continue Reading →

Pain As A Teacher

The best thing I did in my twenties for my body was to give up my ballet career and begin my yoga career. My muscles and joints were most grateful to me and I was most grateful to my teacher and mentor Gurmukh, who introduced me to Kundalini Yoga. So began my journey of body… Continue Reading →
