Spinning A Healthy Future – Monday Oracle 9 December 2019

Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to each other by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and compassion.

Holding You In My Heart

“Like a caring mother holding and guarding the life of her only child, so with a boundless heart of lovingkindness, hold yourself and all beings as your beloved children.” ~ Gautama Buddha Hello, Lovelies.

If You Feel A Little Unravelled…

Yes, we will all have cracks — but that is how we break without falling apart. ~ Timothy Joshua Lovelies, It’s December, and December requires you to rest.

The Strange Goodbye

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” ~ Benjamin Franklin Not long now, lovelies, and I’ll be on a plane. Usually, post-Retreat is a blur for me. I’m always the kind of exhausted that makes moving impossible, let alone thinking or talking. My normal post-Retreat plan is three days of solid sleep. But […]

The Things I’ll Pack

Everything you own must be able to fit inside one suitcase; then your mind might be free.      Charles Bukowski Hello, Lovelies. It’s our last day of Platform Retreat, and I have been up early, packing my bags, and preparing for our final teaching sessions and goodbyes. After Retreat ends we’ll take several loads of equipment […]
