Mother’s Day is always a challenging one for me - I lost my mother 14 years ago, and have very little family around. As a result, I think of my clients and students as my family, and it’s always my joy to pass on my gifts of healing to my new extended family. I would like to invite you to join that family, too.
2016 may have been a year of turbulence and changes for many of you. The good news is... it is over now and it helped you release what no longer serves you so you could move forward into this new year of 2017 unencumbered and ready to create a new future full of growth and opportunity.
To quote one of our heroes, Transcendentalist scribe and exquisite thinker, Ralph Waldo Emerson, "You have done what you could—some blunders and absurdities have crept in. Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."
I personally stopped making New Years Resolutions years ago when I finally made one I was able to keep. It was simply that I would no longer make New Years Resolutions. Doing so often sets us up for unrealistic exceptions and disappointment when we don't meet them.
One thing I did do, which has continued to help me greatly, was learning various forms of meditation until I came up with an easy, no-nonsense meditation practice that I could realistically keep.
According to the AMA and other top medical associations, the number one underlying cause of disease is STRESS! More prescriptions are written out for stress related issues such as anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, than any other RX! These same doctors agree that number one thing to reduce stress and other diseases is to meditate daily.
Meditation has been scientifically & medically proven to:
- Calm the Mind and Nervous system
- Reduce Blood Pressure
- Improve Sleep, Mood and Emotions
- Regulate Heart Rate
- Balance Hormones
- Improve Cognitive Function
- Lowers Anxiety
- Improves Immune System
- Produces deep states of relaxation
- and the list goes on and on....
For these reasons, I feel a great way to start the new year and set new intentions is to share these simple techniques to help you better align with your true divine self this year. Come start the new year off right and join us for a relaxing evening of simple instructions to create your own unique meditation practice to carry you through the new year in peace and harmony.
You will learn how to easily quiet your mind and body and glide into effortless transient states of consciousness. Learn how various forms of meditation can help heal illnesses, create more joy, love and abundance in your life, increase your natural intuitive abilities, and connect to higher realms of consciousness.
In these workshops we combine the sound of antique singing bows and tuning forks, silence, yoga, breath, & guided imagery into both eastern and western styles of meditation, producing the greatest and easiest attainable effects.
I look forward to assisting you meet your meditation goals in 2017!

No matter how you choose to celebrate the holidays remember to do it with love. Love for family, friends and community. Love for your Country and the World. Include all living beings, everywhere! Whether they have two legs or four, wings or fins and no matter where they live....love them all.
We are all God's children, or children of this universe, or what ever energy source you choose to call it...bottom line is we are all one with the source of our creation. We are all born out of a love energy so powerful and unconditional that no human words or language can possible describe it. Those of you who have experienced this divine love energy as I have been fortunate to, know what I mean. It truly has no words that can properly describe the feeling you get when you experience this energy first hand.
This is a difficult time for many people and for a variety of reasons. Remember to show love and compassion to all you meet. You never know what hurt is hiding deep in thier hearts. I know for me personally this is always a hard time of year. I lost my Dad 17 years ago around this time, my mother not long after. I've lost a few other family members this time of year, including my beloved pets. So as joyous as this occasion can be for some, I know from both sides that it can bring back pleasant childhood memories, as well as unpleasant memories of loss.
In honoring the loss of my beloved dog Max last Christmas, I will be spending Christmas day volunteering at the Lehigh County Humane Society.
Last year after Max's passing I visited this shelter to make a donation of cash and gifts in the way of food and supplies, some left over from Max. Taking a walk around while I was there, I found Toby, an older Beagle Shepard mix with special needs in search of a forever loving caring home.
It took many months of trial and error to help manage the grand maul seizures he suffered from, along with his car sickness. Now that we are coming to our one year anniversary, we successfully have his condition under control and he is a normal active dog. He and my other older shelter rescue, Bambi, enjoy our hikes and playing together. We also had to teach Toby about cats, as he was never exposed to them. With some patience he now knows to leave our older cat alone, but discovered he can play as much as he wants with the new kitten that was left under our old chicken coop this summer.
Watching all of them play, grow and thrive is such a blessing. I look forward to helping all the animals in this wonderful shelter. It will be nice to relieve some of the people who volunteer there year round and allow them to be home on Christmas with their immediate families while I extend mine into the hearts of all the animals there.
Remember that the sign of Christmas is a star, a light shining in the darkness. This holiday season, be that shinning light for others. Show them the way out of darkness and into the light by being an example of love, compassion and kindness. I wish you all the very best for the season and the new year!
Thank You with Blessings of Love & Light this Holiday Season.

Ahh..finally after a very hot and humid summer here in the NorthEast, we are finally feeling some of the first cooler nights and morning with the dawning of Autumn. Most people don’t think of this time of year as a new beginning. Most people associate that concept with springtime when the first flowers break through the frost of late winter.
