Summer News 2024

Friends, Family, Students and Peers – Greetings to You All!

I'm sending best thoughts your way for a safe and healthy summer. I can’t believe how quickly the year has passed since my last newsletter. Yet, these past twelve months have been so full of upheaval and radical shifts on the world stage – it seems like a decade of activity! This has been mirrored in my own life with some health and personal challenges – gratefully being resolved – which delayed my plans. I’m now back on track – still teaching and cultivating my own yoga practice and spiritual studies. In my paradigm, I view all in a spiritual context. While I can't solve the world's problems, I can have the intention to solve my own. Being compassionate and kind are key to my well-being and creating peace in my heart. At the very least, I can keep my own litter box clean!

"In a world full of fear, be courageous. In a world full of lies, be honest. In a world where few care, be compassionate. In a world full of phonies, be yourself. Because the world sees you. The world hopes for you. The world is inspired by you. The world can be better because of you." – Doe Zantamata 

Since March, I’ve been re-booting the liquidation of my mother’s art, jewelry and books as well as my own massive collection of “stuff.” It’s been like an archeological dig, a forensic examination, and a dismantling of my life and family’s lineage all in one!! Both physically demanding and emotionally painful, it’s also included many moments of joy. I’m finding items which have brought me laughter and inspiration – all “grist for the mill” for my memoir.

I’m ready to let go of the treasures I’ve unearthed. Well, most of them anyway!

I wish you the best in your journey and am deeply grateful for your continuing support. Acknowledge your individuality and accomplishments while remembering your connection to nature and this planet. Be positive, even in the face of adversity and amid chaos.

Stay calm and carry on. Breathe!

Above all, I wish you peace. I enjoy hearing from you – text, email or call! 

Happy Fourth!

Blessings & Namaste,
