What I’m learning from all THIS »

The U.S. presidential election is giving me a rich opportunity for expansion as I attempt to see disagreement and uncertainty with grace, from a higher perspective.

Life without a story »

Lately I’ve noticed the constant presence of stories defining people’s existence. We seem to crave them, collect them, learn to seek to create them to define ourselves and stand out from the crowd, to be “somebody”. I have mine too, of courseā€¦ “Mother of a special child whose journey to save her son ultimately saves […]

Teaching Now: The Food Garden »

This spring my food garden is teaching me one more layer of letting go. I’m trusting the balance of nature, and enjoying my foraging trips every lunch and breakfast.

Templates of Possibilities »

Reflecting on the change manifested since I started the Home Reorg, and the change not yet recognized coming next to my life.

Radically Authentic »

Last month I attended one of Anat Baniel’s “Kids Beyond Limits” workshops. I loved meeting and interacting personally with one of my favorite teachers, refreshing my mind with her knowledge, and considering the possibility of signing up for her professional training – for a very little while.

And I’m […]

I knew that freeing my hair was going to pay off in self acceptance, growth, and discovery… I started this “project” almost three months ago inspired to act on acceptance, allowance, letting go of control and all those good things, using my naturally curly hair (blow dried straight for 25 years) as subject and material […]

Rose Colored Glasses »

I’m thinking about our upcoming trip back to the Autism Treatment Center of America for an Intensive week… Same “challenges” than last year: A long day in airports, planes, and roads with a child and luggage, away from our kitchen. A single day to get there before our program begins (and a lot of money […]

Big steps towards freedom »
