Six Ways to Pause + Honor the Summer Solstice

Six Ways to Pause + Honor the Summer Solstice

Tapping Into the Intelligence of the Universe Greetings Honoring you today and the Wheel of the Year which attunes you to the cycles and rhythms of life’s sacred flow. There’s a natural cycle of life: it begins, it sustains, it lets go. Nurses witness the cycle of birth, life in between, death.

Not a lump, still a small area of unusual tissue. The expert team from the hospital I worked at for almost 20 years performed the procedure. Then came the waiting game, Easter weekend was coming up and the imaging center, where I was to return to get…

Meet Alan Watts: An English writer, speaker and self-styled “philosophical entertainer”, known for interpreting and popularizing Indian and Chinese traditions of Buddhist, Taoist, and Hindu philosophy for a Western audience. I went to see him in Toronto, Canada, when I was 18 years young in 1969. I wasn’t ready for what he had to say… Dear one, I was a sixties baby (boomer) on the path to freedom from suffering.

Reflections from My Sabbatical + What To Do Now

Hola Beloved Soul, Yep, it’s been awhile. First, thanks for opening up this blog post. My sabbatical for my 70th birthday in 2021 is coming full circle.

As a woman thinketh…ebook: to empower you

Dear Nurse, This tiny book offers a BIG dose of spiritual wisdom for women. Completely updated, this adaptation offers a fresh interpretation of the 1903 classic, ‘As a Man Thinketh’ …often called the greatest ‘self help’ book of all time, and others claim to have inspired The Secret and Laws of Attraction. Although still immensely powerful, the original book was written in a time when… frankly no one gave a damn about what women thought….
