The Power of Vulnerability

If we need to prove we are powerful, it is safe to assume that we are compensating for feeling powerless in some way.

There is power in conscious vulnerability. We are so confident in our power that there is nothing to defend: We are not worried about others' opinions or...

The journey of self-discovery is the most important journey we can take. It is an inner journey and a heroic one. The dragons to be slain are our own fears, insecurities and outgrown belief systems as well as behavior patterns and life situations. Challenges to be overcome include family, social...

Disney's latest animated film Frozen was blessed in the timing of its release, as we face a record-breaking winter and Polar Vortex. Played by Idina Menzel, Elsa, the older of two sister princesses, has a magical gift. Because of an unfortunate accident early in the film, she becomes afraid of...

This month we celebrate --  in a Hallmark-driven holiday -- romantic love. With pink and red hearts everywhere and ubiquitous ads for flowers and romantic dinners for two, for many single people this time of the year becomes an inescapable reminder of their longing and loneliness. 

Whether single or coupled,...

Breaking Free

Last week was fraught with mixed emotions for many of us who dream of freedom and equality for all. The Supreme Court's rulings on the Voting Rights Act and affirmative action were a bit of a buzz kill for the high that followed when DOMA and Prop 8 were repealed....

Spring Cleaning Our Lives

(0) Comments | Posted March 24, 2013 | 11:34 AM

Spring is here officially, for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.

Spring cleaning is a time-honored and, one could even say, natural ritual. After months of accumulating food and extra pounds for protection during the harsh and unpredictable winter months, spring is a time to lighten up the load....

Tending Love's Fire

(1) Comments | Posted February 14, 2013 | 12:10 AM

Have you ever witnessed the creation of fire? It is such a profound privilege, one that strikes a cord deep in our ancestral memory.

Fire, to our modern minds, is as simple as striking a match, flicking a lighter or -- going back to elementary school science experiments -- using...

Navigating Change

(4) Comments | Posted November 6, 2012 | 8:30 AM

Change is in the air. Not only is the change of seasons palpable in many places, but in the case of many people I know, life changes are brewing, often showing up in dramatic ways or in the form of an unexpected curveball. In relationships, completions or new beginnings. In...

Let's Get Free!

This week we celebrate Independence Day, the anniversary of when the U.S. declared its freedom from England, with fireworks, parades, barbecues and picnics.

But are we really free? It depends on what we mean by freedom.

To me, freedom is more than the right to vote, to speak our...

Breathwork is a perfect healing tool for the 21st century. Why?

Why Retreat?

(0) Comments | Posted June 14, 2012 | 8:40 AM

Too often we get so captivated by the busyness and hecticness of daily living that we forget to reference our deeper, intuitive selves. TV can be entertaining as well as educational, but it can also be a distraction, deflecting self-reflection. Our relationships with lovers, family, friends and co-workers likewise provide...

Summer of Love

Summer is almost here. In Miami we are already hitting the 90s, while for most of the U.S. it continues to be an unseasonably warm year so far.

I know little about astrology. Because it lands on my birthday, astrologer friends have alerted me to a significant planetary event this...

(12) Comments | Posted August 18, 2011 | 9:41 AM

It's hard to believe that 10 years have passed since the fateful day that forever changed the world as we knew it. America remains mired in two ensuing wars that have cost thousands of lives and wreaked havoc on our economy. Just a couple of months ago we finally nailed...

Coming Out Spiritually

(5) Comments | Posted November 9, 2010 | 2:39 PM

It is hard to believe that in this day and age young Americans -- seven in the last couple of months alone -- have taken their lives because of internalized conflicts about being gay, lesbian, bi or trans. We know there are others who have not made the news and...
