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 […]

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 […]

Your Biography Becomes Your Biology!

Thought for the Day — Your Biography becomes your Biology! One of my teachers, Dr. Jim Said, used to say, “the body is not an indication of your potential, it is a record of everything you have been thinking, feeling and doing.  Don’t look to the body to see your capacity, it’s your history!  Change your thoughts, […]

Brené Brown – Boundaries, Empathy, and Compassion

I love this short video clip.  I am often talking to my clients about the importance of creating and maintaining healthy boundaries.  Unfortunately, most people don’t have a clear sense of what boundaries are or why they’re so important, but once they get it, can see how holding healthy boundaries affects their happiness.     […]

Become the Hero of Your Own Story!

Thought For The Day: Too often in our world we are obsessed with other people’s lives and adventures — it’s all we think about, it’s all we talk about. Whether it’s celebrities’ latest exploits, what’s happening with the characters in a tv show or book, a husband/wife, children or parents, family or friends and what […]

It’s RIGHT NOW, What Can You Do?

Thought for the Day –  There’s only NOW, So what are you going to do? I Love this mantra.  David Wolfe posed this concise version of this eternal question at the recent Longevity Conference in CA.  It’s his twist on “Be Here Now”, “the Power of Now”, “Point of Power is In the Present”, etc. […]
