The journey is not work, unless you are on the wrong path. Course correct and leave the work behind. I am on Medium today and in the midst of a 24-minute read when this quote appears before me… “Crave the result so intensely that the work is irrelevant.”Michael Jordan’s performance coach, Tim Grover …and in...

Happiness is Presence
It occurs to me as I am sitting in the arena. Friends next to me, family nearby, and screaming fans all around me. Happiness is here. Happiness is present, are you? I thought for a moment that this place might be the happiest place on earth. A hockey game, that is where happiness was present... Continue Reading →
Silenced No More
The irony of realizing that I have not posted one blog since pouring my silent retreat experience into words. Silenced for three months? Or a life that has been so noisy there is no room for thought? Or pure avoidance of sitting in one more thought in silence? Whatever it is, here I sit, not... Continue Reading →
Stepping into Silence
Stumbling into Silence Arrival was abrupt. Unpacking my car and starting the klutzy balance of suitcase, duffel bag, yoga mat and other "essentials" into the building that welcomes you more like a prison and less like a resort. Three steps up into the foyer (very loose concept) and realizing it is 100 degrees inside and... Continue Reading →
Hyperventilating in Silence
There is power in meditation. Positively, back breaking, soul stripping power. Sit still, breathe in, breathe out…stay a while. You don’t have a choice. You can’t run away from the mind, the ego, the intellect or the self. Here we sit as one HARMonizing. Take it all in, it’s already there.

Silence showed itself like a long-lost friend. It was refreshing and revealing. I liked it and wanted to stay in... Continue Reading →
Driven to Silence
Photo by Anna Shvets on Pexels.com Today is the day, the start of a 5-day adventure into silence. What am I doing?!?! This crazy idea started back in May when talking to my therapist who shared with me that he had recently come back from a 7-day silent retreat out in Big Sur. He was... Continue Reading →
Righting in silence
Writing is the act of letting it all pour out of you, a waterfall of words that smother a voice from within holding hostage in silence everything that means something.
Take it back!
Photo by Zhanna Fort on Pexels.com Here we are post-pandemic and forever changed by so much more than a virus. We are changed by how we interact, who we interact with and when we interact. We have found yet another "line in the sand" as a country where "we decide" for ourselves. I will decide... Continue Reading →
Moving to Moderation
HBR article "In Praise of Extreme Moderation" spoke to me this morning. This is an article that will resonate with every one of us regardless of where we fall; moderate or extreme. It calls out the new norm of practicing extremism in all that we do. It calls out the “new” need to do everything... Continue Reading →
