The Day of The Heart

Posted on February 14, 2013 at 9:40 AM

Dear Hearts:

Happy Valentine's Day!!!! This is a day to celebrate Love in all its forms. Many take this as a day of romance. I want to take it a step further because Love is such a strong energy and it is everywhere.

Let me count the ways...

The love of a man and a woman (or a man for a man, woman for a woman) and how they use this Love to Create a beautiful relationship, a beautiful family, a beautiful community.

Gentleness - Well-come 2013

Posted on January 2, 2013 at 2:30 PM

Dear Hearts:

Happy New Year!!!! May 2013 bring everybody peace, abundance and joy.

So far, it has done just that for me - in ways that I didn't even imagine would happen.

On the 31st, worked my final day for Microsoft. It was quiet so it was an easy day. Then later in the evening, went to the yoga studio where my teacher had her first New Year's Eve class. Along with a wonderful asana practice, there was a guest life coach who gave us 2 se...

Kirtan on the Upper West Side

Posted on October 7, 2012 at 11:50 AM

Dear Hearts:  last  night was the annual kirtan at a sweet little church on the Upper West Side in NYC. If I had to choose one session to go to every year...this is it. Every year magic happens. There was only one time I missed attending this (but it was livestreamed so I got to see it...). The drive in was uneventful and the weather cooled down quickly (note to self:  next year, wear more layers...).

A wonderful vocal group named Prana opened the night. I had...

Hi, Dad...Its been 5 years

Posted on September 5, 2012 at 8:05 AM

Hi, Dad! 

Five Years ago today you joined Mom in hevvin...and I know the two of you are so happy and that you and Ralph are continuing to play practical jokes on God/Goddess/Spirit. That gives me comfort.

Dad, its a strange time here on Earth. We seem to be at a crossroads now - and have been for a while. I look around me and see both the horrible nightmares of greed, corruption and destruction as well as the visions of compassion, love, nurturing, re...

Vision Quest - August 2012

Posted on September 3, 2012 at 9:50 AM

Dear Hearts:

Its Labor Day and very rainy outside. Perfect for continuing to absorb the Vision Quest taken 3 days ago. I'm still very tired but filled with awe at what came through (stunned is probably a better adjective).

Friday was a very hot day here in Chester County....but thankfully, not horribly humid. I reserved the spot very early in the morning - it helps to have a dear friend who is a park ranger. She showed me the spot earlier last week and I fe...

AT the Mazar: Butterflies, Bees and Hummingbird

Posted on August 22, 2012 at 2:30 PM

Dear Hearts: have been back from the Mazar (shrine) of Shaikh Bawa Muhaiyaddeen that is located very close by. It was only my second time there but I felt I had to go to a place of quiet, of reflection, of beauty, of peace and silence. I took my voice recorder, pen and paper and its a good thing I did.

I took off shoes, sat at one of the entrances to the meditation garden. The sun was high and hot - but oddly enough, the heat didn't bother me. The heat of the sun felt wonder...

Jaguar Return

Posted on August 21, 2012 at 9:50 AM

Dear Ones: am celebrating two anniversaries this month. The first one is one of absolute joy in my life.

Bodhi came home with me August 13, 2011 at nearly 1 year old. He is so filled with joy and love that my heart sometimes bursts with the love that flows. He adjusted fairly quickly and once he came out from under the bed, he has grown and blossomed into one of the most beautiful kittehs - inside and out.

The second anniversary is 2 years this month (can't...

Sunday Yoga in the Park/4 Horses Near Home

Posted on August 19, 2012 at 3:20 PM

Dearest Hearts:  Its been over 2 months since I blogged and have been choice. From leaving Corinne's to my short time at human massage school to the quiet time, much energy has been and is changing.

Today, however, was an awesome day at the park. I drive to a nearby park to practice Yoga outdoors. There is one area with concentric tree circles - very powerful areas - at least for me. Last Sunday and today, the energy of the practice was very grounding, very p...

A Blessed Father's Day to those men who grace our lives with their strength, wisdom, teaching, caring. You are so important to your children as they are important to you. Treasure each other, love each other, nurture each other, teach each other.

Hi, Dad...Happy Father's Day wherever you are. I usually don't feel you as much as I feel Mom but today...I do. We would celebrate your birth-day and Father's Day together because the dates are only day...

The Blessings of a Sufi Saint

Posted on June 10, 2012 at 3:30 PM

Dear Ones:  Nine days ago, I was gifted with the opportunity to visit a Sufi shrine. Its not even 15 miles away, nestled quietly within the verdant land in this part of PA. Another healer took my neighbor and me there to explore the energies of the Meditation Garden that resides to the side of the shrine.

It is called The Mazar of Shaikh Muhammad Raheem Bawa Muhaiyaddeen.

In its simplicity of structure, the Mazar is beautiful. Simply beautiful. The ene...
