Reorienting- It's what we have to do sometimes in life, in work, in relationships. I'm sitting in a hammock on the dock near sunrise. The lake is nearly calm, but for the surfacing turtles and jumping fish causing minor ripples. I notice the hammock obstructs my view ever so slightly and I adjust my own body, so that my main...[ read more ]


Many many moons ago, I worked for a child placing agency. My job was to go into the homes of prospective foster/adoptive families and interview them to ensure they had what it takes to provide safe homes for children in foster care. One time, I was interviewing a woman who said something I still remember vividly to this day. When...[ read more ]

Fear Spreads

  Fear as a concept has been coming up for me (and my clients) lately. During the Cacao Ceremony over the weekend, I prepared by drawing a card to add to the display. The card coming up was Waterfall (Effortless). (This is the second week straight this card has come up for me in Cacao!) We did some breathwork and...[ read more ]

Thoughts on Boundaries

I hope all of the parents and school teachers out there are adjusting well to "Back to School". We are all gearing up for the shift in seasons (from summer to autumn). The one thing constant in life is certainly change! Today I want to talk about boundaries, because it's been coming up a lot lately, both personally and professionally....[ read more ]

Putting the Past in the Rearview

I'm taking a break from all the ketamine speak to write about something I saw this week, which I feel is relevant and interesting to think about. I was sitting at a traffic light earlier in the week and I observed a person riding a hybrid electric bike across a cross walk. As he was going by, a gust of...[ read more ]

Attuning to Nature

"Oh winds of change, come blow straight through.  I don't resist.  Only persist and shift right along with you." There are many ways to attune to Nature.  I've heard many a shaman speak of whispers of insight and wisdom coming to them via the conduit of wind.  I never experienced it myself until recently.  I had the good fortune of...[ read more ]

Releasing with EMDR

Ever the optimist, I hold a vision of the future where children are taught the healing arts at the elementary school level and everyone on this beautiful planet has access to the tools required for human growth, development, and evolution. One of the tools accessible to all today, is a type of therapy called EMDR.  EMDR was discovered in the...[ read more ]

Tips for Working Through Seasonal Affective Disorder

  Seasonal Affective Disorder is defined by the Mayo Clinic as "a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons and begins and ends at about the same time each year."  Symptoms of SAD can include feelings of depression, loss of interest, changes in weight or appetite, difficulty sleeping, increased irritability, low energy, difficulty with concentration, and even suicidal ideation. ...[ read more ]

Heart Connection

The heart seems to be coming up a lot this month.  Perhaps it's because much of the world continues to be focused on collective "virus" which impacts the heart/lungs.  Maybe it's because many of us are focused on gratitude throughout the month of November, which indeed expands the heart space.  It could even be that the heart holds more intelligence...[ read more ]

Presence of Mind

Nearly everyone I see these days is complaining of an overactive mind.  They seek ways to reduce the anxiety it causes.  I recall once reading that humans cannot go without food (or will perish) for three weeks, water for three days, breath for three minutes, but thinking- three seconds. Chew on that.  The mind is bringing up a thought every three...[ read more ]
