My Shai died a little earlier today and we buried him in his bed with his blanket under a beautiful pine tree. My heart is broken - and will be taking a few days away from here.

Dream Big

Back in 2005, I was 47. I lived in a lovely semi-rural town in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts. My daughter had moved out and on to her adult life in Boston, about to discover a world that she could not have imagined those mornings she stood at the end of the driveway looking … Continue reading Dream Big

Do Be Do Be Do

To be honest, the only quote we know for sure is true is Sinatra's ... I read the news. Every day. I didn't always - I went through a period of ten years or so when I simply didn't care. I was in a "cave in Tibet" mindset. Then, I didn't want to know, I … Continue reading Do Be Do Be Do


Six years ago, I pulled into the parking lot of the Humane Society in Dillon, Montana. I had an appointment to see a springer spaniel; when I got out of my car and looked around, there was a small, furry, black dog in an outdoor kennel by himself. He was limping, "poor thing," I thought … Continue reading Sensing


A little over a year ago I completed the course work, including a 98 page written exam, and received my Bachelor's Degree in Metaphysical Science. I was also ordained as a Metaphysical Minister and certified as a Metaphysical Practitioner. It was the first of three steps in earning my PhD in Metaphysics. ~ Officiating at … Continue reading Stories


Yesterday the weather grew heavy and dark – there were storms passing to the north and south of the city, but nothing landed here until after 11 pm. I was practicing a new piece on my guitar, when suddenly the rain came pouring down. I got up to shut the door and windows that were … Continue reading Shifting

I’ve had a series of conversations with people over the past days about the old testament story of Jacob wrestling with the angel. Each conversation has happened in a different context with each person – but I so enjoy when these themes come up. Last night, in the midst of yet another conversation on the … Continue reading Wrestling

Spiritual Materialism

In 1973, just before spirituality became a booming industry, Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche wrote Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism. I imagine that, like many of the spiritual teachers from Japan, China, Tibet, India, Vietnam, and Cambodia, he must have been shocked when he arrived in America. All the eager faces – at that time, … Continue reading Spiritual Materialism


We often hear, in spiritual circles, that we are inherently worthy - that we do not have to do anything to prove ourselves, our simple existence is proof of worthiness. We may have a sense, an intuition, of what worthy really means - and what it might feel like - but many of us don't … Continue reading Worthy

Free Yourself

Many long years ago, I was sitting across the table from my tarot mentor in her living room. She shook her head and sighed, "you're like a bird beating its wings against the cage when the open door is right next to you. You are already free." I had absolutely no idea of what she … Continue reading Free Yourself


Some days are full of fabulous conversations, the ones that are a little challenging, that offer me the opportunity to consider, integrate, and grow. Whether it's friends, clients, or my new doctor - everyone has contributed to new insights ... and to opening the path to following my north Star. During one conversation, my client … Continue reading Judgement


I can feel changes in the making; I'm not sure what direction they're coming from ... or will go ... but I can feel the subtle shifts of energy, folding and refolding into something new. Whenever changes are on the way, so are choices. Will we allow the change? Push and pull at it until … Continue reading Choosing

Some Housekeeping

How many of us have been in a class or a meeting or seminar where the presenter stands up to say ... a few words about housekeeping. Ugh ... boring. I've been working on getting my metaphorical feet back under me and recovering from some physical setbacks. Last night, while ignoring the little voice that … Continue reading Some Housekeeping

Chasing the Pain

I first learned about EFT (emotional freedom technique or tapping) back in 2005. The man I was involved with at the time swore by it's effectiveness although I never witnessed it helping him one bit. Still, I was curious, and wanted to know more. I studied through Gary Craig, the founder of this method of … Continue reading Chasing the Pain
