Green Living: Essential Oil Mouthwash Recipe

Here’s another of my organic personal hygiene products.  Most of them are super easy to make.  I continue to find it incredibly rewarding to make my own products and know their exact ingredients. My Green-Living guru friend, Joanna Greenfield, advised me to keep it simple.  Most recipe books, she says, overcomplicate things to make you feel like […]

Think Different Film Series – 2016/17

Since 2012 I have collaborated with the Nantucket Atheneum Library to present a documentary film series that explores new ideas and perspectives related to wellness.  This is our sixth year and I think our best ever.  The thing I love most is that the Think Different Series challenges the audience to consider new ways of perceiving life and […]

Green Living: Shea Butter Deodorant Recipe

Last year I started making my own organic personal hygiene products. It has been incredibly rewarding to know exactly what’s in everything I put on my body, that they are all completely edible, and that they won’t have a negative impact on the environment. Today was one of those rare days when I ran out of everything […]

3-Primary Rhythms: Part 3 – HEARTBEAT

Please note: this is the third installment of a 4-part blog.  (see Parts 1 & 2) The second rhythm I would like to discuss is the pulse or heartbeat.  The heartbeat is tied directly to respiration.  It is hard to increase your heart rate without affecting your breathing and vice versa.  The heart pumps oxygen and […]

3-Primary Rhythms: Part 2 – BREATH

Please note: this is the second installment of a 4-part blog.  (see Part 1) Even though it is the last of our 3-Primary Rhythms to “come on-line”, I’m starting with the breath because it is the one we have the most conscious control over and thereby can most easily access for self-healing. The lungs oxygenate […]

3-Primary Rhythms: Part 1 – INTRO

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine once said, “Natural Forces within us are the true healers of disease”.  Much as we in the 21st-century like to think our technology can do anything, healing still comes down to nature doing the real heavy lifting.  The effectiveness of my work or any therapeutic approach depends on these […]

As Above So Below – As Within So Without

Polarity Therapy founder, Dr. Randolph Stone used to quote variations on this Hermetic axiom all the time, “As Above So Below, As Within So Without” or “the Microcosm Reflects the Macrocosm – the Macrocosm Reflects the Microcosm”. The implications of the interconnectedness of all life and relationships of scale are far reaching—what we see under […]

Massage Technique from DL Walker to Decrease Bunion Size

Here’s a great self-help technique from DL Walker for reducing bunions.  Bunions are a problem I see often in my practice, but it’s not something that can be solved in one session.  It takes ongoing attention to affect any type of lasting change, so to have a simple FREE at-home solution is very exciting.  Let me know how this worked […]
