    Sangha Invitation

    In my pursuit of further understanding and reduction of suffering I have studied and practiced mindfulness as much as possible on my own over the past year. Mindfulness practice is being employed in Western psychology to alleviate a variety of mental and physical conditions...

    Saying Goodbye...

    Old Blues Guy left this morning. In just the few days he was here much by and for him was accomplished. He detoxed fairly well, sweating out long held toxins in my hot yoga studio. He discovered the healing benefits of cannabis based balm. He exercised more than he had in years...

    Cinco De Mayo Fun...

    Joe is doing very well. He is sleeping through the night, although he is having some intense early morning dreams. These are generally expected at this point in a rehab; things have settled down in his body (he's 83 days sober) and he's been with me a week now and has become...

    Anna On The Mend...

    Much has gone on during the past few days both here and at my family's home in Sacramento. Firstly, Anna's weight is up over 92+ lbs and she is cheery and her thought process continues to clear nicely. She has made solid plans for fulfilling her dreams and she recognizes when...

    Candle In The Wind....

    It's always difficult to say goodbye to someone who has come to visit me here. I liken it to sending a baby off in a small skiff to face the raging seas. Anna did well here and is now at her mother's home in LA awaiting departure for Chiang Mai and the orphanage she is to work...

    The Blossom Pales In Comparison

    Can you name one problem you have right now that is not connected to the past or future? “Learning appears as a process of remembering. The soul, before its incarnation in the body, was in the realm of Ideas. There it saw things the way they truly are, rather than the pale...

    Ahh...the Weekend

    I watched Joe's trailer today. It's a trailer to a movie that is still being edited. It's supposed to be a movie about his progress or undoing as an artist and a musical act, but to me it is really a story of his progressions through addiction. His gaunt face and wobbly, wiry...

    5 Minutes A Day

    While we lay in bed at night, waiting to fall asleep, we could easily spend what could be the best 5 minutes of the day. I wrote the following breathing exercise to help sleep uninterrupted from bad dreams, stress, anxiety or active tension. Try this! Lay on your back with one or...

    I Sooooooo Agree

    But I do believe we endure *trials* in our life to strengthen us.   So although I do wish every one would recover physically ( my husband died a year back from injuries sustained in a car accident when hit by a drunk driver)    I believe that some of the recovery we overlook...

    Settling Down....

    Anna seems to be settling down again nicely. I suspect she will want to go home today or tomorrow and as she has all she actually needs, as far as moving forward is concerned, I think it may be the right time for her to return. Although her weight is down, her mother and I both...
