Never Give Up

By Patti Brown Excitedly, I was making my way down the road listening to Home By Phillip Phillips on Pandora.  Spending some time with one of the most inspirational women I know made for the makings of a great day. Do you know Shannon? No? Well then, for those who haven’t had the honor let me […]

Healing Nature Walks

Some paid their last tribute as creatively carved Jack-o-lanterns, […]

Yoga Within – October

At the Healing Journeys conference in September, the audience was filled with open-hearted people who were willing to help others and themselves. From the moment I walked in and was greeted with wide-open […]

One, two, three; one, two, three; spin, dip. Repeat. We dance to familiar life stressors consciously and unconsciously. Coping and navigating our way through life’s challenges the best way we know how. Dancing, then waiting to learn the next steps.
