In her beautiful guidebook, “A Return to Love,” Marianne Williamson shares a prayer to remember when we’re just about to come unglued and fall in to one of our old emotional patterns.          “ God, please help me.  This is it.  Right here.  This is where the sword enters my heart.  This is where I blow […]

A resting place

January 22, 2014

During yoga we make not only the breath the biggest part of our practice but also where we tend to focus our gaze.  In order to tame a jumpy mind, the yogi finds a resting place for the eyes in every pose. It’s quite intentional. Because not only does it help calm a hot-wired nervous […]

Creative ways to make your work day better

November 7, 2013

Breaking through the glass ceiling.                                       It can be a tough job, but someone’s got to do it.
