It’s not about me

I recently celebrated my 40th birthday at one of my favorite places- Catalina Island. It was absolutely perfect. It was during this trip, and a lively conversation, that an important point was made about each of us (that means you too).

Becoming more present

As I was filming for my coaching program, I spent some time with my clients on being more present and what that means.  Why is it even important?  Being more present is something that I too struggle with.  I am constantly planning.  Planning the next retreat, and the one after and the workshop after and … Continue reading

These three things are ruining your life

Many of us are feeling like a hamster on a wheel spinning round and round trying to find balance, peace and that elusive happiness.  We read articles, educate ourselves, seek answers in diet, exercise, meditation, friendships, love and gratitude.  Sometimes we think we have it figured out.  Sometimes not.  At all. In our quest, there are … Continue reading
