An Ode to Mind-Body Healing

When I was in the thick of the pain struggle, my husband was a Naval Officer.  As a result, we moved regularly, mostly back and forth across the country.  I spent many an hour in various doctors’ offices on both coasts.  I got very comfortable with whipping off my clothes and hanging out mostly nude Read More

Taking on Responsibility

I caught myself engaging in an old habit this week.  I call it the responsibility habit.  It’s a familiar old friend who pops up every now and then.  When I fall into the responsibility habit, I take on responsibility for other people’s issues, emotions, and stress.  Or, I put the entire weight of a team Read More

Reconnecting to Your Body

What does it mean to be connected to your body?  How can anyone really be disconnected from her body?  I mean, aren’t we all pretty much stuck in these bodies we’ve got?

Creating Health, Not Stress

A couple of months ago, I bought groceries in the middle of my niece’s birthday party.  We were celebrating first at the local paint-your-own pottery studio and then at my parent’s house, so I took the opportunity to make a mad dash to the store between those two events. Of course, I was late to Read More
