All I Needed to Learn I Learned from My Children

Life it’s about the journey not the destination, oh what a journey! I feel like I have had a few different lives already. My childhood which was dysfunctional, my college years which were wild, my twenties which were both professional and academic, my thirties wow my thirties…I think I’ll start there.   We were living in San Francisco when I turned thirty.

Busy Parent Meditation :)

A Meditative Practice: Daily Life   I have been considering the whole idea of meditation and how many times I have heard, “I can get about 2 minutes alone per day, if I’m lucky.” Meditation to a mom is like having a quiet moment in the bathroom. I know the feeling, it’s challenging trying to have a meditation practice that looks anything like what the books or spiritual gurus describe if you’re a busy parent. Many of use just give up on the idea of “achieving” that Zen like state.   Here is what I propose; daily life is our practice. We have all heard that the simple tasks of taking care of a family like laundry and dishes can be truly enjoyed and a be labeled...

Connection Couples Coaching

Connection to Self Life Coaching

This is actually where it all starts! A deep connection and understanding of ourselves is key to healthy relationships with others. Often, a feeling of hopelessness drives people to seek help because of what is happening in their outer world = Life.

Compassionate Communication

First I’d like to bring our awareness to the dangers of looking at children with a different quality of respect than we would an adult. The ideal states that all people are equal, it does not matter if you are 1 or 100, but is that what we really believe? Let’s say your neighbor comes over to your home and accidentally spills red wine on the carpet. Do you raise your voice and tell them to clean it up or do you say; its ok I’ll get it, I was going to get the rugs cleaned this week anyway. That is what I’m talking about. We say we love our kids unconditionally, we love them more than anything, yet if they spill grape juice on the floor…well you get the picture....
