The Intangible  Magic of Guides

The Intangible Magic of Guides

A Year of Grounding 2019 was for me a year of grounding, really landing in the life I had, exactly as it was and planting deep roots around the things that mattered to me. With my children we navigated the trepidation of waiting for college acceptances, saying yes to the selected schools and then...

The three dogs of yoga

The three dogs of yoga

Why Dogs? The practice of yoga is known to be about 3 to 5 thousand years old so it's a bit hard to exactly track how the poses evolved.

Top 5 Reasons to Practice Yoga at Home

I love taking yoga classes and being part of a group, having the guidance of an amazing instructor. Yoga is meant to be shared.

From Blackened Toast to Mindful Cooking

From Blackened Toast to Mindful Cooking

Blackened Toast I tried to quickly scrape the burnt sugar topping off before the kids came downstairs. It was a task I knew well. Sometimes I had enough time to scrape, clean the sink of the black film of crumbs, and then cover the toast again with a new layer of butter, sugar and cinnamon. More...

Tiny pinecones, Where’s Waldo and training myself to see

Tiny Pine Cones Often this odd assembly of objects, experiences and ideas begin to swirl around each other in my Alice in Wonderland mind. They seem to group in threes. This recent assembly included the search for tiny pine cones on a morning walk, the Where’s Waldo books and training myself to...
