Could you be suffering from FDS? (Fun Deficiency Syndrome)


Happy 5th everyone! If you live in the United States I hope your holiday week-end was light and playful. I’ve got kids, well young adults, visiting from overseas so I’m officially 19 again. I love it! I love it because in typical scorpio fashion my tendency is to be serious. I’ve always found immense satisfaction in studying, contemplative practices and…

Micro-Practices for Your Busy Life


Have you ever felt that all the self-care practices you knew were too time-consuming to stick to? I have. If you’ve worked with me you know I’ll find you shortcuts for everything: self-massage, meditation, breathing, detox, relaxation. Consistency is key if your self-care is to yield the biggest return on investment over the long-run. That’s why I’m a big believer in…

Sit Back, Listen and Relax Deeply (New Guided Relaxation Audio!)

The Best + Quickest Way Out of Confusion


In my last post I identified a couple of obstacles that often arise when we’re seeking to bring change in our lives. First, the belief that somehow there will come a perfect moment to take action. Usually tomorrow. But as we saw, tomorrow never comes. I also discussed how one decision was all it took to get the ball rolling in a new direction of your…

You regularly get all fired up about starting a new meditation course, cleanse or exercise routine, only to see your initial enthusiasm fizzle out in days if not hours. • You’d love to sleep better, have more energy, be more focused.

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…

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


Lately I’ve been struck by how often I hear people begin their sentences with “I should…” For example: • I should quit this job. • I should go to bed earlier. • I should cook at home more often. • I should have known better. And of course the perennial (among yoga practitioners) … • I should meditate more often. I have many more examples at my disposal. All…

Your Life Experience: Flowing or Fragmented?


In the midst of this holiday season, the last thing you probably need from me is another technique to squeeze into your daily practice of self-care, assuming it’s still in place (anyone needs a tune-up? ;).
