In-Visioning Your Life

"Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will."- George Bernard Shaw

Do you have a vivid imagination?  Can you envision your dreams and desires and see them through to fruition?  Take a look around you and know that everything in your life was once an idea in someone's mind. From the computer or phone on which you are reading this...

Down The Rabbit Hole

From various sources, arise statistics about the number of thoughts we have each day. Some say they range from 50,000-70,000 each 24 hour period. That's a lot of mental energy expended. As you are reading these words, yours may drift to: " wonder what's for dinner? What time did my partner say they would get home from work? Did I go to the bank this morning? Oh, that's right, the bank was closed today,...

Is It Possible To Live A Tidy Life?


"A tidy life."... I woke up this morning after a fitful night's sleep due to residual cough and congestion, with those words in my head. I have always wanted one of those. One where all the pieces fall into place, where actions and consequences are in alignment in my timing, not at the whim of some seemingly random force (call it God/Goddess/Universe/Spirit). One that makes sense to me, that I don't struggle with the 'how...

How Do You Make Decisions?

Chocolate or vanilla ice cream? Vacation in the mountains or by the ocean? Getting married or remaining single? We make numerous decisions in any given 24 hour period. Some seem inconsequential, like whether to have oatmeal or cold cereal for breakfast, while others are monumental, such as determining which college to attend or job to apply for.

There was a time when I was described as being like "a deer caught in the headlights when it came...


How Do We Rebuild Trust in a Post-Truth World?

The Oxford Dictionary added the term post-truth to its list of new words for 2016. It is described as verbiage that appeals to emotion, rather than fact; meant to convince people that something is so, if it sounds like it could potentially be so. False news is making headlines at an alarming rate. One sad statement that has been accepted as long as people have been running for office, is that "politicians lie."  The more...

Struggle Is Not A Four Letter Word

I am a type A, hyper-responsible, over-achiever, workaholic who is in daily recovery. I know I am not alone in my pursuit of excellence, I am aware that it is not always the healthiest vantage point from which to view life. This condition has been with me for as long as I can remember. I had a revelation earlier today following an intense (is there any other kind for someone so afflicted?) workout at the gym.

Ways That Mindfulness Benefits Children and the Adults They Will Become


The 'classroom' was a high ceilinged gymnasium in a day school that serves hundreds of children of all backgrounds, ages 2-5. A sea of colorful yoga mats was spread out on the floor. My own rainbow hued mat decorated with the om symbol   was placed at the end of the room and on it sat a few percussion instruments, tingsha bells and the children's classic book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, that was ready to...


Lessons Learned From Latkes

With Thanksgiving a week behind on the calendar page, leftovers likely gone, the focus is now on prepping, deocorating and retailing for the winter holidays. In the Judaism of my childhood, more attention was given to food than gifts, although I knew that Hanukkah presents were wrapped and hidden (not well, obviously, since I found them) under my parents' bed. The culinary delight known as potato latkes (pancakes) were always present throughout the eight days...
