Doing Less

One of the hallmarks of people who are not feeling as well as they’d like is described as the feeling of being overwhelmed. For some, this means not having the energy to do the things they want; and to others, this manifests as a drain on the muscles of motivation that are required to stay…

In Pursuit of Happiness

I’m struck by how many times the word happiness comes up in conversation. Not only the ones that I share in a professional capacity, but in my life ongoing — indeed, in my own head, almost incessantly. I’m guessing that I’m not alone. So, when I saw that a nearly discarded piece of paper, left…

How Will Your Story Go?

“They” say that today is the first day of the rest of your life. And, I believe that is true. Yet, so many times, I find myself rehashing the past, indeed, reliving it, or at least, playing the past forward. One of the most important things we can do, of course, is to redirect our…

Graduation Day

During the course of any given month I have so many interesting conversations. Perhaps you do as well.

And coincidentally, as it often…

Thoughts For The Emerging Spring

I believe that our understanding of health has reached a new level and as such medicine is evolving into a new era; finally. What’s so special about this next period is that individuals will be treated with the status they deserve, on par with their doctors and other healers. This new era, though, is not…

Feeling Great Before 8 – Siempre Mejor

Last week I had the privilege and the opportunity to spend a week of teaching at Rancho La Puerta, the oldest “health resort” in North America, founded by Edmond and Deborah Szekely in 1940. Indeed, they were way ahead of their times. What began as a simple high mountain oasis is now a lush landscape…
