When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I remember other survivors describing to me that I would start to look at my life as "before cancer" and "after cancer." When I first heard people speak of this, I thought to myself surely it can't be so simple. But the...

Meditation and My New Normal

(1) Comments | Posted October 17, 2014 | 8:18 PM

I first heard the word "new normal" when I was completing my chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer. It was used to describe the "survivorship" period of post-cancer life once the treatments are complete and we enter life with this surreal experience of cancer as something that we endured.

It was...

Get Through Cancer: Check?

I grew up with goal setting as a key component to our family life. Literally -- my sisters, Mom, Dad and I would meet at my father's office at least once a year and assess our dynamics as a family unit. We would whiteboard a traditional SWOT exercise (Strengths, Weaknesses,...

Did I Manifest My Cancer?

(0) Comments | Posted July 17, 2014 | 11:41 AM

I'm not gonna lie. I've dabbled in my fair share of "woo woo" -- however we wish to define it. From mind-body medicine to mantra-based meditation. Acupuncture, feng shui, psychic readings, past life regression, rebirth experiences, tarot card readings -- you name it, I've probably done it. I trust that...

For the last several months, I have been in serious purging mode. ​I would imagine this is a common step for people once they emerge from the cancer cocoon and step into this thing called "the new normal."​ As I begin to gain more energy and vitality everyday, I ​better...

Got Cancer: Now What?

(29) Comments | Posted March 18, 2014 | 7:24 PM

A Cancer Love Story

(0) Comments | Posted February 13, 2014 | 10:17 PM

I have a confession. I'm so grateful I got cancer. There, I said it. It's confusing to confess something so morbid, but as my year cancerversary (Feb. 14) makes its mark, I realize that despite the pain, poking, prodding, and discomfort, this year was perhaps one of the most important...

About a year and a half ago I attended my first official meditation retreat. It was with Deepak Chopra and The Chopra Center. Prior to this, I was what would be described as a "crisis meditator" tapping into the practice at the most expected of times (i.e., New Year's resolution)...
