Last month I was interviewed by Amy Fournier on her Awakening Aphrodite podcast. She asked excellent questions, had a copy of The Wind Is My Mother full of post-its marking her favorite pages and I consider it one of the best interviews I’ve ever had. It’s long at 1 hour 23 minutes, but I recommend it!Continue reading
There’s a lovely tradition in Iceland where the best Christmas gift is considered a book! It’s traditional to exchange books on Christmas Eve and spend the night reading them!
Iceland publishes more books per capita than any other country in the world, and most sales take place between September and December, in preparation for Christmas gift-giving.
The name of this Icelandic tradition is Jolabokaflod, meaning “The Christmas Book Flood.” Let’s do it here!Continue reading
The spring equinox is Sunday March 21, 2021 at 3:37 a.m. EST in the northern hemisphere. How should we celebrate? Why should we celebrate? At the very least, let’s welcome Spring! It’s a day of equal balance of the hours of light and dark before the sun continues its journey towards longer daylight hours and […]Continue reading
Giving gifts on holidays and special occasions is a lovely tradition. But holiday shopping can be stressful, and not even safe if we go into the stores in 2020.
Rather than give more stuff that people don’t really need, I love to give experiences, such as books and courses. And I have a lot to offer along those lines!Continue reading
To me, Veterans’ Day, celebrated this Wednesday November 11, just isn’t enough to honor what our veterans have done for this country. We could learn a lot from how Native Americans take care of their veterans.
And I am deeply saddened by the lack of support and care our veterans receive today.
Yes, war is horrendous, and perhaps if women were running the world there wouldn’t be any wars. But those who did their duty and fought for us deserve better than one day to celebrate them.Continue reading

The Covid-19 virus is giving us a golden opportunity to look at the way we live our lives, and the way the world functions. We shouldn’t want to return to normal, because normal didn’t work.
I hope we’ll all come out of this with a new commitment to live well on every level.
One of my favorite recent Facebook memes is:
“Kinda feeling like the earth just send us all to our rooms
to think about what we’ve done.” Luxepunk on FacebookContinue reading
1 in 3 Americans aren’t getting adequate sleep at night. According to The National Sleep Foundation, adults 26-64 should plan to get a solid 7-9 hours each night and anyone above the age of 65 should get at least 7-8 hours.
Getting a good night’s sleep is easier said than done, but it can be dangerous for your health and wellness if you don’t make it a priority. Sleep can improve your personal and professional life, your creativity, your decision making, your personal relationships, and so much more – it can even help you live longer.Continue reading

In the words of Charles Dickens, “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” Those words apply just as well today. How can we keep sane?
I have found meditation to be an excellent resource.
I am pleased to enjoy excellent health at the age of 73 and I owe it to four things:
1. A 30-year yoga practice
2. 40 years of a daily morning stretching routine
3. A vegan diet
4. Daily meditation and breath work
I am delighted to present this guest post by ______________ on Restorative Yoga, along with a link to an amazing infographic. Give it a try and I do believe you will enhance your health!Continue reading

Kahunas, the shamanic practitioners of Hawaii, use the Piko Piko Breath to both relax and energize the body. It can work for anyone, and can give a real sense of the expansiveness of the universe.
The word “Piko” means center, or naval.
Before Kahunas meditate or pray they use this breath to build up their Mana (Power) to get focused and in the right frame of mind for whatever they are about to undertake, particularly healing.Continue reading
