The holiday season is well underway. How are you doing? If you felt “crazy busy” before December arrived you’re probably feeling crazy-crazy busy now.

Your Busy Mind is an Overwhelming Place to Live

As seen on Oprah.com If you’re like most people, your mind is busy, filled with untamed emotions and unruly thoughts. Your attention is often anywhere but right here. You churn out thought after thought as you live in the chaos and clutter of your busy mind. Busy mind is a catchall term I use to

Give Up Control for a Happier and Healthier You

As seen on Huffington Post Contrary to popular opinion, letting go doesn’t mean being lazy or passive. It doesn’t mean to dissociate or let the world pass you by.

When you shine I shine

Teacher — it’s who I am and what I do. I began teaching when I was 15 years old. I’ve been teaching ever since (that’s a long time).

Finding Time in Silence

Last week I retreated into silence during a few days at Pendle Hill Retreat Center with meditation teachers Scott and Nancy McBride. The power of a few days away is a true gift and I’m grateful for the opportunity to sink into quiet to get clear. I’m inspired to share an excerpt on silence from

Slaying the Dragon: How I Faced My Fear of Heights

I am afraid of heights in wide-open spaces. I can usually deal when I’m standing still, like when I’m in a tall building, but put me in a car that is traversing a mountain and you’ll find me in the back seat with my head between my knees. There’s something about motion and space that
