Healing

Our state of health encompasses not only our physical bodies, but our mental and emotional natures as well.  When any aspect of this three-fold system gets out of balance, we are at risk of becoming unhealthy and developing disease.

Learn to recognize where imbalances may have crept in to your system.  By identifying where the condition exists, and what it may be about, the healing process can begin. . . if we will allow it.

  • Take A Deep Breath

    Take A Deep Breath

    How much stress can a person take? Maybe it’s me, but there seems to be an ever increasing sense of anxiety to life! Everywhere one looks there can be found a quiet desperation arising, that’s underscoring even the most basic activities of living. This fact seems to be having a growing effect on our society, pushing everyone into an uncomfortable place. As we all know, stress instinctively causes people to feel threatened and to react in defensive ways …

  • Vet’s Roll

    Vet’s Roll

    I’ve wanted to go on the Vets Roll trip for a long time. The last two years I’ve qualified for the trip by being on active service in 1963 or earlier. I was accepted and planned on finally going this May. However I did have a problem; Kitty, my wife of 50 years, was in ill health …

  • Layers of Grief

    Layers of Grief

    On June 2, 1969, 49 years ago today, my mother who was 59 years old died on the way to the hospital after being in a car accident. I was at work when one of my sisters called me to tell me what had happened. I was in shock. I remember going back to work the day after the funeral. I was a mess emotionally but I believed that if I expressed my grief that no one would want to be around me. Being alone with my grief was scary and I didn’t know how to process it …

  • Experiences In Between

    Experiences In Between

    I’ve come to learn through my exploration of life, that there is a duality of life and death and the experiences in between.  I’ve learned to look at both sides of an experience so that I can embrace the journey and find value in both the time together and the value of a recognized grief and loss …

  • Hurting Hearts

    Hurting Hearts

    Events over the past few years have often brought difficult news for people to bear, but the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida seems to have struck a “nerve” in the collective consciousness of our country. Perhaps it’s due to the loss of so many beautiful young souls or the tragedy of the innocent being needlessly victimized. But whatever the reason, the event has cut a deep wound in our society’s sensibilities. Whether we, as a country, are aware of it or not, the “heart” of America is highly sensitive and aware …

  • The Gifts of Loss

    The Gifts of Loss

    In June of 2007 I lost my beloved only son Ian, to suicide. Suffice it to say, it was the most devastating thing any mother can imagine, let alone experience. If anyone had ever tried to explain to me at the time that I would survive, let alone survive fairly intact, it would have felt like an egregious lie and a fairy tale …

  • Personal Violation

    Personal Violation

    Today I want to discuss the concept of personal violation. It’s an important topic because I believe feelings of violation are at the core of our unhappiness and a key motivating factor of aggression in our society. We have to ask ourselves, why, as human beings, do we have to fight so hard for our personal rights, for respect, for boundaries …

  • Suffering is Optional

    Suffering is Optional

    There are a number of types of suffering. They include physical, psychological and emotional and range from what some would call minor irritations to major life and death kinds of suffering. Do you suppose there is one fix for all these kinds of suffering? …

  • Degrees of Grief

    Degrees of Grief

    The recent death of a friend has moved me to reconsider my thoughts, feelings, and beliefs on loss, death, and grief. So far, I haven’t seen myself as being good at grieving. I wasn’t taught, in direct or obvious ways, what to do with losses in life – how to mourn, how to adeptly move through life beyond grief …

    Starring Role

    We all have forces in our lives that can bring us to the brink of breakdown or imbalance. . . Anyone one of us can feel overwhelmed by life – that it’s all too much and we wonder why we go on …

    Breakthrough

    Six months ago I found out I have intestinal bacterial parasites due to a weakened immune system from gluten intolerance. The diagnosing doctor told me that . . .

    You Can’t Have Your Cake And Eat It Too
