Loving Kindness for Life

{One of my favorite spots in Big Sur. I  need to get back there in 2014.} I attended a really special day long mediation with Jack Kornfield at Spirit Rock years ago. He’s a spiritual hero of mine. If you have any interest in meditation and mindfulness you might enjoy his books and teachings. He’s approachable and speaks in a way that really makes sense in our modern (crazy making) culture. He was on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday yesterday and it was such a delight to watch. You can catch the full episode of Super Soul Read More →

Weekend links for the holidays

Happy weekend, friends. I’ve come across so many interesting stories, recipes and thoughts online lately. In the midst of the consumerism and crazy of the holidays there also seems to be no shortage of thoughtful and thought-provoking ideas online. I just had to share a few.

Malls are the perfect storm of hideous lighting, perfume and uninspired branded sameness. It’s an exercise in frustration and I rarely leave feeling good about my purchases. Especially, if I’m looking for something really special. Treasures are few and far between. So I thought I’d gather a little round up of goodies I’d love to see under the tree this year. I’d be happy to give or receive any of these finds. Some of them are things I Read More →

Food heals, duh

“When you know better, you do better.” ~ Maya Angelou I had planned on waiting to get through the holidays before posting about this. But it’s too important and I sense that what I’ve experienced over the past six weeks might help some of you as we head into the season of sugar cookies and champagne (two of my favorite things, by the by). For about a month in a half I’ve been actively cutting simple sugars and grains from my life. I’ve been a vegetarian for more than 25 years and I consider myself Read More →
