Science of the Soul

Several months ago I sat at my computer reading over a list of possible retreat options. Usually once a year, if not twice, I visit The Peace Village... a meditation and learning center located in the Catskill Mountains, about 90 minutes from my home in upstate New York. I have been to several different themed… Continue reading Science of the Soul

How Can I Help

Last winter, my husband Jeramie and I became hooked on the show New Amsterdam. The lead character, Max - an overly ambitious and intense medical director used as his mantra "how can I help?" to every person that crossed his path.

I Like…

And a better relationship and understanding of… Continue reading After 100 Days

Determined to See

Several years ago, I remember having a conversation with a few of my friends about our personalities. It came up for me, that I am a very stubborn and determined person. Those who know me are free to snicker... because to this I am guilty. It turns out that astrologically speaking, I am a Capricorn… Continue reading Determined to See

On January 1st this year, I began doing the workbook of A Course in Miracles. The Course is a spiritual text that was translated in the 1970's with the intention to help us unlearn some of the habits and thoughts in our lives that create chaos. It talks in great detail about the role of… Continue reading The Real Reason for Upset

Beginnings

When I was in 6th grade my fellow classmates and I were warned about a teacher that we were going to have to deal with in the second half of the year. This teacher, Mrs. Haff, was to be our keyboarding teacher. She was big, mean and angry according to the rumors around school. On… Continue reading Beginnings
