Exploring Freedom through the lens of a Personal Life Philosophy. This weekend I am celebrating my birthday. 43 trips around the sun. Like the transitions between seasons, or the end and beginning of the year, I give times like this special significance by using them as reflection points. I spend the morning going through my planner; each month … More What Channel do you live on?
Although this morning’s -40 temperature hardly reflects winter ending, the sun feels warm through the windows and the sunset is coming later everyday. This hibernation period has been great for reflecting, but as the days get longer I find myself planning for the next change of season. For the next 3 months I have the … More Looking forward…

I mentioned in my August 1st post that I intentionally leave the word “Yoga” out of my description when I get asked what I do.

Yoga and specifically Yoga Therapy goes beyond the movement of an exercise class… So what is … More Global Yoga Therapy Day
Freedom It was official Wednesday at 4pm. The cabin deal closed and I headed out with a little bit more unknown and a lot more FREEDOM! No bills, no debt, no partner, no pets, no plants… I had been intentional over the last year to create more space. To have less. To need less. To make more room for whatever … More Freedom
I’m quite certain that at some point in your life, like me, in the midst of change, challenge, pain or loss you have uttered the phrase, “I just want to be happy”. But what is happiness?
