Slow down to the point of stillness

  Sometimes I don’t want to move. I don’t want to run, bike, lift heavy objects, read, write, or speak. Sometimes I just want to sit still in a moment and be there. Fully there. Without the to do list and without judgement. In this busy world it’s rare that we find time to slow down to stillness. If you wait for that moment it will never come. If you create it, it will always be there. Today I invite you to sit still amongst the chaos and just be. You’ll be surprised at all that you discover – good,Continue Reading >>

Meditate anytime, anywhere

Back in September I was desperately looking for a local hair stylist to do an emergency color touch up for me, my only criteria was that she was walking distance from where I lived and had a 4 star review. I resorted to YELP and narrowed my search down to a stylist that was 2 blocks away, had rave reviews, and a fun salon name “the urban chair”.

As we ramp up to the biggest gift giving day of the year I can’t but help but notice the chitter chatter around me. It’s not all love and laughter, more often than not I hear people say how stressed out and busy they are around this time of the year followed by “And I still need to do my christmas shopping!”. Growing up, I looked forward to decorating the christmas tree, eating deliciousContinue Reading >>

2015 is the year I _____ !

2015 is the year I ____!

I know we still have a month before it’s officially 2015  but I’m starting early.   Over the last few years I’ve started using December as my hibernation month. Since all of nature was beginning to turn inwards it made sense that I should also.   I was also tired of starting the year off “tired” and falling off my “resolutions” a week into January (more on resolutions in a later article).   I wanted to step into a new year clear, calm and in control. Who doesn’t, right?   So I started reframing the months and days leading up toContinue Reading >>
