I haven’t written anything in what seems like a very long time, although in reality it was just April of this year. Looking back at the last few months, actually the whole of this year, I can understand what has brought about this change in plans, or how I foresaw my year going back in


When you’re stuck

Regardless of how you approach life…… how well you manage your time, your work-life balance, personal meditation, exercise or yoga practice, healthy eating, etc. …….. there are going to be times when you become “stuck”, when it appears that you are spinning your wheels, not moving forward as you would like, or perhaps even backsliding to


Disconnecting to re-connect

Inspired by the recent actions of one of my daughters, I decided to take a break from social media for a while and to consciously observe the effect of this decision in my daily life. I am not on Instagram, I do not Snapchat, nor do I Tweet so it really comes down to Facebook


Finding your way…..

I was surprised and amused recently when, walking my labyrinth, I found myself momentarily disoriented and unsure if I was going the right way.  This occurred within a structure that I designed and built. It was a good reminder of how challenging it can be to find our way through life, even in familiar territory


Looking for help?

Personally, I find it hard to believe that 2014 is almost over and that we are just a couple of weeks away from the beginning of 2015.  This year has been a whirlwind and, as I write this, I am aware that a number of goals I had at the start of the year have

I am currently participating in Rev. Desmond Tutu’s 30 day Forgiveness Challenge – an online program exploring and looking at all aspects of forgiveness through a daily exercise. Initially, I saw this as an opportunity to enhance my practice and to deepen my awareness and understanding of my clients and students – an interesting exercise,


You are invited…..

A NEW YEAR, A FRESH START, A NEW YOU! … AND AN INVITATION…. Can you believe it?  2013 is almost over!  Where does the time go? Every time I have that thought, I also think how much I sound like my parents years ago!  They would often say that in my childhood at a time


Letting go….

Perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of living as spirit in the physical world is letting go……whether it be physical possessions, your youth, emotional ties, out-dated beliefs, abuse, responsibility for others, loved ones as they grow, move on, pass away….it can be so very painful! And yet the ability to let go is crucial


Self-esteem without roots…

Date: Posted on: Categories Healing, SpiritualityTags , , , , , , ,

I was reading an article recently on the BBC News website entitled “Does confidence really breed success?”, in which it discussed the concept of self-esteem in young Americans today and their attitudes with regard to their abilities, drive to succeed, etc. The article made mention of how the increase in self-help and self-esteem materials, movements,
