From Role to Soul: Second Book Release and More

Hi Friends, First of all, please forgive me if you have already seen an email or a post on my new book. I never want to inundate people. Just trying to get the word out once through all of my channels. Second, I know you have not seen a blog from me in a while.... Read more »

Blah, Blah, Blah Blogs!

Throughout the past few months, I have been in an interesting phase. After three and a half years of writing a blog and about a year longer on social media, I woke up one day and just felt weary, burned out, bored—any word here will do—of blogging, as well as much of social media. Interestingly,... Read more »

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

Tonight I am participating in “Blogapalooza” with my large blogging group at ChicagoNow. Once a month we are all given the same topic at 9pm and have exactly one hour to write, edit and publish a blog. As I am typically not a night person and definitely not a nighttime writer, I was not sure... Read more »

Contentment, Numbers and The Big Arena—In, Out or Both

Yesterday I wrote a post on my public Facebook page that unknowingly seemed to sum up, in many ways, my inner summer reflection and eventual clarity: ~Speaker Brene Brown says it takes great courage to step into the arena. I agree. But, it also takes great courage to step out of the arena once inside.... Read more »

Family and Friends: They May Not Like What We Do—So What!

Some of my own family members and friends are at the very least not interested in what I do, and at the most, downright resistant to it. Some even view it as useless psycho-spiritual blathering. More than a few don’t even read my blogs—what I consider to be pieces of writing straight from my core.... Read more »

WE Must Go First!

WE Must Go First!
WHO becomes the next president, while important, is actually far less important than each one of us individually, through our own personal development, moving from an ego-based consciousness to a heart-based one. When I step away from the political hype and get really quiet, I know this to be the truth deep in my soul. When... Read more »

Katie Couric's New Show: Do We Really Desire More of the Same?

Katie Couric's New Show: Do We Really Desire More of the Same?
Katie Couric’s new talk show debuts next week. Being that Katie is an intelligent, worldly and seemingly positive role model for so many, I must admit that I was hoping for a little something different for her 2012 show. While I do not actually intend to watch it either way as I am not a... Read more »

The Dalai Lama - "The World Will Be Saved By the Western Woman"

The Dalai Lama - "The World Will Be Saved By the Western Woman"
The above quote by the Dalai Lama really got me thinking. What exactly did he mean by his intuitive assessment of the role of western women in the upliftment of our world? As I sat quietly contemplating his offering, I began to feel the truth of its meaning… In the work that I do as... Read more »

50 Shades of Grey: Turns Out Grey Can Be a Pretty Color

50 Shades of Grey: Turns Out Grey Can Be a Pretty Color
Yes. I. Am. I’m swan diving right into the 50 Shades discussion. This book is selling like hotcakes, and after my fast and furious relationship with the trilogy, I feel compelled to weigh in on why… I had heard of the book this spring, but hadn’t read any reviews or paid much attention to the...
