I thought I was living a healthy lifestyle until I saw a TED Talk video about the art of being still.

Many years ago on a cold Christmas Eve, I was feeling lonely and separated from home. I shouldn’t have been, but I was.

My husband made an interesting observation about Halloween the other day. He said it is a holiday celebrating mortality. Now I love sweet little kids dressing up and bobbing for apples and attending parties, and I like trick-or-treat candy.Continue Reading

When I listen to the current health care conversation, it appears that there’s an underlying assumption that it’s necessary to continuously monitor the body and intervene to maintain balance and wholeness.

Life is full of blessings, but what I’ve noticed is that the human mind likes to dwell on the negative rather than on the blessings.
