From Being Quiet to Experiencing Silence – Another Kind of Detox


I’m back from my silent retreat and still feeling its calming effects a few weeks later. I loved Costa Rica! Once I got used to the lizards in my bedroom and driving 20 miles an hour on dirt roads, without seeing a soul or sign for miles! It was so refreshingly rugged. Wild nature, fresh organic food, the ocean and of course…

Silence please. Pleaaaaaaaaase!


If you live in New York or any other big city you know silence is a rare commodity there. Non-stop sirens, alarms and honking, buses, trucks, loading and unloading, the screeching hellish sound of subway trains pulling into the station, all conspire to create a maddening environment.

Why You Need to Stop Saying “I Should…” ASAP.

Except for a period of 6 months maybe, during which I found music to be distracting to my own concentration.

In my previous post I began tackling the subject of mental clutter and how to open up more space in your mind (for, you know, things like creativity, intuition, bright solutions to come through..)

A Summer to Declutter! (i.e. 4 Tips to Create More HEAD Space.)


Summer! The season of abundance, beach fun and berries, rosé for some, popsicles for others, picnics and siestas! Summer invites us to lighten up, as in a lighter diet, schedule, attitude. Perhaps like me you also enjoy getting rid of stuff to open up more space in your living quarters. But there’s another kind of living quarters where all of…
