Livelihood of the Heart

I have a great appreciation for holistic practitioners and creative service providers. Many have been my peers during the past 25+ years: massage therapists, Feldenkrais practitioners and other movement educators, choreographers, performing artists, wellness and health coaches, energy workers, acupuncturists, art, dance and music therapists, naturopaths, and spiritual and life coaches.  I’ve observed that this group of people, most of whom have chosen to serve others as a livelihood-of-the-heart, are a dominant force for…

Money: Expecting Enough

EXPECTING ENOUGH In one of my earlier professional incarnations, I was a dancer, choreographer, and dance educator. One of the many fun things about this work is that I frequently found myself standing in front of a room of people who expected me to lead. Usually it was a group of 8 – 30 people coming for an African dance or modern dance class. I loved teaching dance, and this kind of…

Your Main Complaint

Here's Something to Ponder... "What would your Life be like without your main complaint?" This question was put forth by the great Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith of Agape International Spiritual Center in November 2018.   I love provocative questions that TEACH and this one definitely falls into that category!  Before I could answer, first I had to think about the concept of "main complaint." I think I know what he's getting at.  He's…

A Confident Marketer

Every morning when I wake up, and each evening before going to sleep, I take an inner inventory of my "frame of mood." As we all know, these are key times of day when it's especially important to meditate, do a gratitude practice, write in our journal, or in some other way "center down," go within, reconnect to our spiritual side. Lately, I've been paying close attention to where I am on…

Proof is on the Way: Perseverance

Finally, after almost 90 dizzying days of working digitally with the formatting, the cover design, and getting it all to work in the mechanized bowels of Amazon's printing arm, CreateSpace, I will be receiving my very first PRINTED PROOF of my upcoming book in 2 more days!  Just when I was beginning to wonder if my manuscript would ever leap from the computer screen onto actual paper, something shifted. I'm thrilled to say that the Proof is on the Way. I'm telling you all of this, not because I imagine you're particularly fascinated by the self-publishing process, but because I want to illustrate with my own personal example that moving in the direction of something new, something really worthy, will always result in obstacles to overcome and the need to re-commit, over and over.
