Wholeness does not = Perfection

Published on April 6, 2019

Living a life is a messy, beautiful thing. We start on a learning curve that is steep. So much to integrate from physical coordination, to language acquisition, to the skills of daily life. This goes on our entire lifetime, but becomes more subtle as we grow and age. Do we ever get to a point […]

On the cusp between March and April, we continue our journeys and begin to think about wholeness. Spring is here. The season often inspires the same enthusiasm for personal renewal as the New Year.

The Journey is yours.

Published on March 3, 2019

I remember my first “real” yoga class. I write “real” because my very first experience with a yoga class was at a gym, taught by a Physical Therapist, who was not a trained yoga teacher(read, physical practice only). I ended up developing probably the worst (certainly the most memorable) cold of my life the day […]
