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…

Without Quality, the Numbers Don’t Matter

Now a month into the New Year let’s take a moment to reflect. How are you doing? How are you really doing? In particular, if you made resolutions four weeks ago, how is that going? Chances are, in our typical tendency to be harsh on ourselves, you might feel that you are already a little…

While the election is over, IT’S not over.

The election result is an actually a reflection of a deep wound that exists now; a rift, that might have been partially healed, that is pulling apart once again. Just like a wound on your little finger, it’s quite sensitive; and it’s once again prone to infection and worse if it’s allowed to fester. In…

The seasonal transition from summer to fall is a time of harvest, in which food is bountiful and resources are plentiful.

Instead of the…

Fruit Moon

While we continue to enjoy the warm month of August, its arrival, for many, also signals that the blissful summer season is coming to a close. For the Cherokee nation, there is also a special sense of appreciation associated with this transitional period. Referring to this month’s moon as the “Fruit Moon,” the Cherokee gesture…

Moon of the Middle Summer

With this month’s full moon now upon us, we are faced with a surprising, and for many, disappointing realization. Referred to as the “Moon of the Middle Summer,” by the Dakota Sioux, this name for July’s full moon reminds us that the coveted summer months are quickly passing us by. Though we are powerless to…

Summer Moon

Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, once declared that “a hidden connection is stronger than an obvious one.” And, certainly, without the motivation to look beyond what’s right in front of us and explore the unknown, many of history’s life-changing discoveries and breakthroughs would certainly have never been made. However, considering that summer is now in full swing,…

The Moon When Leaves Are Green

Hunter, harlequin, chartreuse and lime…the color green comes in an abundance of tones. What I’ve always found curious though, is that while these terms are often used to describe shades and hues in the worlds of fashion, beauty and home decor, they are rarely used when we commonly speak about nature.  It makes me long…

The Grass Moon

Spring is in full swing. And, among the flowers, we acknowledge a particularly important one to us all, our Mothers; and along with her, all the other women in our lives who relate to motherhood in some way. Whether somewhat traditional or completely unconventional, our maternal relationships all tend to have one thing in common…a…
