The Blesstival Wave Continues to Build…
In times of intense energy dynamics and epic shifts — for many, that’s pretty much right now — we can feel both catapulted out of our comfort zones, uprooted and unmoored, and stuck, as in Way not opening. At the same time.
A strange and confusing paradox, that, but it seems to go with this particular unmapped territory.
This and other stressors can stir up a seemingly mighty riptide of angst or funk, a.k.a. depression. Add the holidays or similar high-expectation times, and shake.
And yet sometimes the medicine for being off-kilter isn’t so much out there — thankfully, as we often have little to no control over what’s out there (yes, I learned that lesson the hard way!) — but rather the medicine is right at hand, as close as our own breath.

Sometimes we have blessings in our midst that go largely unseen, ignored, passed by if and when we're so stuck in our routine we just walk right by them. This is what happened when the violin virtuoso, Joshua Bell, staged... Continue Reading →

I invite you to join me in a Blessing Sadhana, or Blesstival … sharing blessings into the collective via blog, website, Facebook … wherever you connect.
