“It is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten”.Ghanaese Wisdom

Published on November 24, 2018

Often, we talk about being in the now. Looking to the present moment for guidance for the future.

Personally, I have learned so much about myself from looking at past occurrences and […]

Published on November 17, 2018

We begin the season of togetherness, memories and gratitude. All of these things mean something different to each of us. We have our own stories of the holidays, our own memories.

This Claude Monet painting, triggered a memory for me. The memory is of a place in Idaho called Billingsley Creek. We spent a nite here a couple of years ago.

Published on October 21, 2018

I don’t know why I was surprised. I’ve been to Southern Utah before. Perhaps, it was spending extended time camping in the red rocks.

Connect to your sacred

Published on October 7, 2018

This month we are exploring our own sacred. Where do we find it? For some, the yoga mat is a sacred space. They do not like others walking on their mat as it represents a personal space that should not be violated or shared. For others, the mat is a symbol for a space that […]

October: The practice of finding sacred space

Published on September 30, 2018
