Beyond Boredom: When Less Is More

My client’s chest heaved and sweat dripped from his brow as he settled onto his yoga blankets. He had sprinted from work to make it to our 7:30pm session, commenting that work had been crazy. I asked him if this stressed him out or if he thrived on it. “Both,” he admitted. “But it’s a […]

The Space Between

Just as I clicked both kids into their car seats after visiting a friend and her new baby in the Jersey Suburbs, white pellets started dumping from the sky. I had to crouch down to see out of the windshield. Gripping the steering wheel tightly, I questioned whether or not to pull over and wait […]

Bumping into Brilliance

The other morning as I raced around trying to make breakfast, make lunches, and brush three sets of teeth, while trying to convince two children under the age of five to change out of their pajamas before 7am, I could feel myself tightening up.

More Than Meets The Eye

I arrived at the Advanced Soul and Destiny Retrieval course in Joshua Tree, California with a right eye that looked as if I’d gone a few rounds in the ring with Mike Tyson. For the past six months, since the last time I went to California, I’ve had a blocked tear duct in my left […]

Impeccability

Dashing down the stairs to make the train on my last day of work before maternity leave was probably not the best idea, but I made it without going into labor. As I slid into the train car just before the doors closed a young man of about 13 moved his bag over to offer […]

Christmas Trees are Falling Down

One frosty December afternoon in my childhood, while jumping with a friend on our backyard trampoline, we caught a glimpse of our Christmas tree in the back window, spinning around slowly like an antique merry-go-round. We jumped off the trampoline to investigate and discovered our two dogs, Jake, the yellow lab and Evie, the black […]

The Energy of Abundance

The wind whipped up while walking with a client along the East River Promenade Sunday morning. I heard something skipping across the ground, like a leaf but crisper. I looked down and saw a $20 bill. My heart jumped with excitement. After a week of unexpected expenses, parking tickets and cancelled classes I recognized that […]
