Want to find, keep & deepen inner peace?

Last month the school shooting rocked emotions. Since then, at least two notable suicides heightened conversation about the prevalence of people’s feelings of hopelessness, anxiety and depression.

Are you experiencing inner turmoil too?

My heart aches for the 10 innocent children who died as a result of the senseless school shooting last week. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Couldn’t help but think that IF the shooter had been taught how to find his inner peace and how to return to it in… Read more »

Can one inner peace habit really change your life?

Are you fully embracing the ride?

Are you excited about the upcoming holidays? In resistance? Or vacillating somewhere in between? No doubt there is a transition into the energy of the holidays. It can happen slowly and gradually.

Making Peace with Imperfection

Are you being tortured with imperfection too? Lately I’ve noticed myself harshly judging myself, playing the comparison game and feeling like a failure in multiple areas of life. Yep, full on, being extra critical of all that is seemingly “imperfect.” Do you ever slip into this mode? We all do it from time to time…. Read more »
