Compassion: Motivation for Good! — May 2022

May’s theme is compassion. Mother’s Day this month brings to mind the Divine Feminine and all that the female deities and saints represent.

Practice: A Daily Anchor! — March 2022

The theme for March is Practice. We know that “practice makes perfect.” It takes practice to become adept at any given discipline, art or craft.

Themes and Prayer April 2020

Endurance, the Yoga Lady® theme, Jackie Valdez’s monthly word, empathy, and wisdom from the Attunement Transformation, a group devoted to healing via energetic meditation – a perfect  “holy trinity” of connected themes for April! I’m impressed, but not wholly surprised at how serendipitously these fell into place. […]

February 2020 Theme – Harmony

Harmony is my theme for February. As I’ve been doing for some years now, I allow the theme to come spontaneously, opening my mind to “catch” the first thing which surfaces. Then I meditate on it and relate it to my circumstances. I start and end all […]
