Healing Loss: Election Edition


Imagine that you’ve lived your life in the seat of democracy, a shining beacon of ideals, progressive values and freedom that literally draws the world. And picture a slow-motion carnival of the absurd and outrageous, a grainy side show culminating in a presidential election with breath-taking results. Not only does the popular-vote-candidate-by-a-landslide not win, but … Continue reading

Hell Week, Heaven Sent


In the short span of one week: client #1 offered me schedule changes that dictate cutting my hours in half while infringing on my most popular time for individual sessions (reducing my income further), client #2 put our work on hold indefinitely due to cost-cutting measures, and, client #3 sold her business and retired. And … Continue reading

Surrender


This year I was called into a situation in my personal life that I strongly resisted. It involves a family member’s physical and mental illness, and straightening out the effects of lifelong dysfunction and unhealthy decisions. It requires a lot of communication, both written and verbal, and some red tape. The situation is a can … Continue reading

God, Oneness and Brahms


Grace Notes: of Music and Spirit God, Oneness and Brahms’ Piano Trio No. 2 Op. 87 in C major I’ve loved the music of Johannes Brahms since age three.  (Yes, I WAS asked and my preference duly noted!)  In my 20’s I resonated with the pain, agitation and deep, loving sweetness in his chamber works.  … Continue reading

Waken in Me a Gratitude for My Life


A dear friend sent me this beautiful poem about the journey of spiritual healing that is just too good not to share. I LOVE these brilliant lines characterizing God: “disturber of the assured, assurer of the disturbed; destroyer of illusions, creator of dreams;” As a student of A Course in Miracles I will add the … Continue reading
