Autumn is in the air and she suggests a change … a change of color, of temperature, of attitude? Subtle at first, but the change will become more obvious as the season progresses. I feel these stirrings and am ready and willing to shed the seasons of the past.
Some may embrace the change in anticipation of snuggling in for a winter’s rest, but I have rested enough and much work awaits. The work I am embracing is inside, with fires to stoke, passion to reignite. In thirty days I shall be 60 years old. Just another birthday … yes … and cause to celebrate.
Join me in beautiful Puerto Rico for a January Wellness Retreat. Yoga, meditation and island breezes will renew your energy and nourish your practice.

If you have been thinking about a meditation practice….hmm, thinking about meditating…..and wondering if you want to know more….”10% Happier” by Dan Harris is a good read. Dan is a TV journalist – Nightline, GMA, 20/20 – and he sprinkles this tale of his journey to mindfulness with anecdotes of well-known public figures from broadcast news. His profession provided an opportunity to meet with some of the most respected professionals in the “field” of meditation and spirituality. He may get a bit self-congratulatory but I appreciated this: ” The act of simply feeling the breath breaks the habits of a lifetime. For those short snatches of time when you are focused on the rise and fall of the abdomen or the cool air entering and exiting the nostrils, the ego is muzzled. You are not thinking, you are being mindful – an innate but underused ability we all have, which allows us to be aware without judging.”
