Thank you to Leslie at The Breathing Project for sharing this video with our class yesterday. It’s some of the most moving minutes video I’ve ever seen- Helen Keller with her teacher, Annie Sullivan. Who could have imagined this existed? Annie Sullivan’s determination & creativity to serve is beautiful, and the power of the human spirit making a connection, Helen Keller’s smile- simply incredible. I’ve found it’s hard to watch without getting emotional. “Alone we can do so little; together...read more
Another “best of” post about Arrested Development? Come on! Like many Bluth fans out there, my husband and I have enjoyed re-watching Seasons 1- 3 more than XXX thousand times. We have counted on our Bluths for many laughs and are excited and grateful Mitch Hurwitz and team are back with more this Sunday. We’re so glad Season 3 wasn’t the last time we were going to see them. So on this rainy Memorial Friday with the Spring Break holidays behind us, and the long awaited Season 4 of “Scandalmakers”...read more
Sometimes when I’m contemplating a question or idea, as a music lover, I put my ipod on Shuffle and look for meaning in the songs that come up. Today I got 3 perfect songs in a row, no skipping, first try that I just had to share. And while I may be alone in looking for meaning in odd places, am grateful to Liz Lemon (I’m going to miss you 30 Rock…will I ever laugh again?!) for hysterically championing quirkiness among many other qualities, and making me more comfortable sharing my thoughts here. Grocery shopping...read more
Minimize tension, counteract stress, train & relax the mind, clear up the unconscious, awaken creativity, enhance memory & learning capacity and so much more… Yoga Nidra is a meditation practice that focuses on relaxation and guided imagery to create a sense of deep rest and peace. The term “yoga nidra” translates as “yogic sleep”, and is truly the art of conscious relaxation, also known as psychic sleeping. No physical movement involved.

Restorative yoga is a practice that has been profoundly transformational in my life. I am grateful to my teachers, especially Mary Aranas, and am grateful for the opportunity to share the amazing benefits of Restorative yoga with students! Restorative yoga poses are passive stretches taking you into a deep state of balanced relaxation while stimulating and soothing organs, repairing muscle tissue, supporting weight loss and improving concentration. Deep restorative poses activate the relaxation response, the place where our body’s own...read more
Watching the Starship video last week inspired me to re-watch some of these old videos and then make this list. Totally random, but this was too good not to share. What makes these videos the best? That’s subjective and really these were movies/videos that popped into my head. I know there are many more gems out there. What makes them 80’s? Everything. The hair, the special effects, the saxophone silhouettes, mannequins coming alive… Trivia- There is one actor who appears in 2 of these movies & videos. Here...read more
“If everyone would sweep outside their own door, the whole world would be clean.” -Johann Wolfgang Goethe Arianna Huffington wrote a great blog post earlier in the week- “The Social & Political Implications of Downward Facing Dog”, and Huffington Post’s efforts to heal stress for convention attendees and the public. At both the Democratic & Republican conventions, in partnership with Off the Mat, Into the World and others, The Huffington Post set up an “Oasis” booth offering yoga,...read more
Lists like this are always fun (and always too short!) I agreed with a fair amount of Shortlist.com’s 30 Greatest Closing Paragraphs of all time. There are a few I would take away (not the biggest Nabokov or Salinger fan) and some I still need to read (especially the Harry Potter books and The Picture of Dorian Grey), Anna Karenina, Tolstoy might be #1 for me and you can read more of my unabashed love of Anna Karenina here. The Great Gatsby, Heart of Darkness and The Stranger are right up there as well. Here are two more to...read more
“…..but my life now, my whole life apart from anything that can happen to me, every minute of it is no more meaningless, as it was before, but it has the positive meaning of goodness, which I have the power to put into it.” -Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina Much like the last lines of the book, reading Anna Karenina has added a layer of rich positivity to the context of my life. As someone who has only recently discovered the magic and genius of Tolstoy & Anna Karenina, I loved reading this Guardian article “Why Leo...read more
