Spring 2014

Spring is the season of growth and transformation - the start of many new beginnings. What better time to launch Transformations, the newsletter designed to inspire you to live your best life!

In this issue, I'll share with you in the blog some insights I had during a recent one-week meditation retreat on how to shift out of overwhelm and into a calm & focused mindset.  We'll look at the many benefits a smile can bring and we'll explore how Bio-Energy Healing can help you energize your life - with a special spring promotion to help get you there!

Don't forget to check out the exciting workshops I'm offering this May and June in the Upcoming Events section.

Looking forward to creating new beginnings with you this season!

Blog Post: How to Handle the STUFF of Life... with Ease & Grace

Can you imagine spending days on end, sitting on a cushion in a hall with 30 other people, listening to all your thoughts, feeling every emotion and noticing every last little sensation that shows up in your body? 
What's more, spending that week in total silence, speaking with no one, completely unplugged from the internet, the only outside stimulation coming from the food you eat and daily walks in nature?
That’s exactly how I spent last week, at an amazing Vipassana Meditation Retreat on Samish Island, near Bellingham, Washington.

Clear the Energetic Debris Away… & Revitalize Yourself for Spring!

Having trouble sleeping lately?  Do you feel like you’ve had 10 cups of coffee and are running on adrenaline?   Or is your level of tiredness set to Extreme Exhaustion practically all the time?

These are some of the signs that your body’s energy system may be out of balance.  The cause:  STRESS! 

The daily grind of work, caring for children, keeping up with email, paying the bills on time...  all take their toll.  Over time, the stressors of modern life can cause a build-up of "energetic debris" inside of you, slowing or even blocking your body's natural flow of life force.

These energetic blocks may initially leave you feeling exhausted, stressed out or overwhelmed.  However, left unattended to, this blocked energy will eventually cause dis-ease in the body as your cells and organs are slowly deprived of the energy they need to function optimally.

Just like the drain in your bathtub that can get clogged up with daily use, your body has an energy system that needs to be flushed out regularly so that your natural healing energy can flow fully and freely.

Smile & Be Happy!

Could the intensity of your smile indicate how happy you are in life?  A study in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science seems to think so.

Researchers compared the analysis of facial expressions in social media to self-reports of greater life satisfaction and found a correlation - the bigger the smiles, the happier people were.

Other studies have investigated how happiness can contributes to longevity.  Learn how smiling can add years of happiness to your life.  Continue Reading.
