Many summer rituals have been experienced as late summer embraces us, reminding us that ‘this, too, shall pass’. I spoke with a client recently who said she does her best to embrace all of the seasons, as ‘there’s nothing you can do to change them. I agree wholeheartedly! I hear people rail against the weather frequently, saying “It would be a better (or beautiful) day IF it weren’t cloudy or raining or chilly’. People making those comments May be forgetting how succulent and juicy that being alive is! Yes, it can be challenging – big time! And yet there is so much to be grateful for. As you rise to meet the road ahead of you – troubles and triumphs galore! – please do focus on gratitude for all of the gifts and beauty your one wild life has presented to you. Right now, think of four things you’re grateful for, and then ‘hit reply’ and share them with me. I’m excited to hear from you!
It is my honor to support your progress with your healing and life goals, using empowering conversation and powerful energy healing. Please call or email today to schedule a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation. There’s no time like the now!

Woodbury Practice Group Closure
Our Final Group Practice in Woodbury was held outdoors on August 29th. In recent months it became clear as numbers dwindled that there were not enough regulars dedicated to this practice opportunity. After over six years of weekly practice, our group gathering has been discontinued. Community service gatherings are guided by volunteers, and attendees are a vital force of goodness for growth and longevity.
To all who attended (in Oakdale originally, and then Woodbury): Your presence, sincerity, sharing and openness were gifts to the group. Tune in to the goodness we co-created, every Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m. – or anytime! The healing, loving vibrations we created together are timeless, powerful, and always available to all!
To my 2018 co-leader, Michelle: Thank you, dear one, for sharing leadership and for freely giving your heart to us all. Woodbury received an eight-month ‘extension’ because you unhesitatingly said ‘Yes!’ when asked. Brava, soul sister!
Special mention and great appreciation to Nikki Robbins for graciously creating a lively space where we enjoyed qigong practice and healing in community. Your invitation to move the group from Canvas Health to Peace of Mind benefited so many, through loving connection and a caring community building unconditional love. Bless you and yours, dear one!
In a book by William Martin called, “The Activist’s Tao Te Ching”, he writes a timely interpretation:
We don’t know what the future looks like.
Transformation will surprise us with its form.
If we knew what it would look like,
our vision would be limited
and our efforts would be futile.
We act in service to the formless Tao,
not to the forms and functions of our restless minds.
So we let the tensions recede,
our bodies relax,
and our minds open
I used to have more difficulty with endings. It becomes clearer with age and wisdom that endings create space which is needed in order for fresh manifestation. I approach this space with curiosity and great gratitude. May each of you consider the beauty of the freedom that comes with letting go, in perfect time – in each present moment.
Qigong Classes ~ Mondays in Minneapolis
Learn how to use the power of your breathing, mind and simple movements to enhance and balance the flow of energy in your body. Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Eastern practice which promotes natural, holistic healing. It has been simplified and made available for modern times! With easy, gentle movements, you can balance your personal energy to reduce stress, relieve pain, heal faster, and enjoy better mental focus, strength, resilience and vitality. Some students for this class have been attending virtually every class since January 2016. Join us. You’ll be glad you did!
