Post traumatic growth

Yep, you read that right.
many of us are familiar with PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. Many of us have PTSD from a traumatic event or a long traumatic relationship. The events of 2020 has given us all PTSD, as we all lived thru a traumatic, long-term exerpeince. We endured a time of fear, unknown and change when we felt very powerless.

having PTSD isn’t all bad. Once we acknowledge that the stressors of 2020 or our own traumatic history has changed us. For some, we develop fears, avoidance behanviors or discover that certain situations trigger a replay of the emotions we experienced from trauma. The good news is, there is help for PTSD. Working with a good mental health professional can help you understand  and begin to reclaim your power. Many find great healing working with bodywork, yoga, movement, creative expressions to help understand and release trauma still held in body and mind.


if life doesn’t hurt you, do you just roll along, not noticing that it’s not feeding you either. That you’re not becoming, helping, elevating. You’re just surviving. PTSD takes away the rutch of pretending your okay and you actually have to change, dig in, learn, embrace who you are and begin dreaming about why you’re here and what you want to do.

New year, new energy, new attitude?

Welcome to a new year.

2020 got our attention… our fear, our energy. Our focus was on the pandemic, the unknown and change. The energy we used to put into health, wellness and self-care seemed to vanish. Worry and fear are such powerful emotions and we’re not comfortable with them AT ALL. So that discomfort sucked up the energy and focus we might have put into our wellness.

2020- a higher perspective

If you read through this, bear in mind that I’m not placing myself in some position of authority at all. I have lived my life with this sense ever since childhood that I’m here to help the world to recover, grow and heal. I believe we are now in that time. There is much work to do. I’m sharing what I’ve learned, what is helping me and some resources. May it inspire you, encourage you, lift you to this next level.
with great love

Love every thing

As a wellness and meditation teacher, I want to share with you what calming practice has taught me. It has shifted my perspective on most everything. I feel like I live in a very different place than I did 20, 10 and even 5 years ago. This new place lets me watch what goes on around me and “most of the time” I don’t have to get pulled into the fray. There’s a peace where I live, a sort of knowing that everything is going to be all right. I wish I could share it with you. I suppose this long, long blog is an effort to try to do that… or perhaps to begin a process of letting you know that there is a really different world available, one where you don’t have to stay glued to the media to survive, one where you don’t have to be filled with fear about your future. Continue reading “Love every thing”


First, I do believe that all the changes, challenges, trials, we are facing today are part of our world evolving and awakening to become a more loving, compassionate, sustainable world for all sentient beings (to me that means all living entities- people, animals, plants, bugs, the planet herself.)

How to change the world?

We must find a way to love one another regardless.

I know it is not enough to state this simple fact. How can we each take action?

One way is to really look inside our own hearts for places where you and I might draw the line between “us and them.” Which humans do you dismiss as being less than? If the color of another’s skin isn’t your “divider,”then what is? Continue reading “How to change the world?”

How are you?

How are you? I don’t offer any details here about disease, rules, stats or forecasts. What I am here for is to say, “How are you?”

Social distancing for health was a shock to me. Now, you might not know me so let me tell you a bit. I’m the introvert’s introvert. I can function socially and must to teach and lead but given a choice, I almost always choose, ✔️ Hide at home.

Giving we are working thru some trying times, I’m going to get back to more regular posts sharing ideas and practices that might bring you more energy, health and joy.

One healing practice I’ve been enjoying a lot more lately is using sound to share calm and energy with others. I do monthly sound baths at After a sound bath last night with a small group, I was just so glad. Glad to have a space to share, glad for the souls who came to join me. So I propped my phone up and recorded the RaMaDaSa to share.

This is a Sanskrit chant that is ancient. I prefer to teach chants in English to meditation students but this one is still a favorite of mine because of its simplicity and power. It’s about wholeness, energy and connection.

The recording is on my youtube Channel at        


Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung

Ra- the sun, a warm and powerful source of energy
Ma- the moon, receptive and reflective energy
Da-  the energy of the Earth, grounding and nurturing
Sa- infinity, allows energy rise up and out, touching Universal healing
When you chant Sa a second time, you pull the healing energy into you.
Say-  honoring the Source, in a personal, secret way

So- merger, true connection of you and source.
Hung is the Infinite, the essence of
creation. (So Hung together means, I am Thou.) The service of thecosmic intelligence is within me.

RA MA DA SA is the earth mantra.

This part of the mantra pulls the healing vibration into the physical plane.

SA SAY SO HUNG is the ether mantra. This part of the mantra resonates with the universal healing frequency.
