Introduction to Kaizen: 5 Part Series

Part 1: “Take Small Actions” I stumbled upon the Kaizen approach when I read this wonderful book, “One Small Step Can Change Your Life, The Kaizen Way” by Dr. Robert Maurer, PhD. The book is a little jewel that in the most clear, concise way outlines a very simple but powerful approach towards making transformational changes in one’s life…. Read more »

Making Peace With One’s Resistance

This was clearly an interesting week for me. I definitely had some wonderful “Inner Vixen” moments this week. I sailed across the floor, boa in hand, grooving to my favorite Hip Hop teacher, Johnny P’s, awesome choreography, feeling like “MTV, watch out!” I loved being back in class with my belly dance goddess of all… Read more »

Put the “Me” Back In Meaning!

So what do I “mean” by that? Well, in order to complete something in your life that’s been on your mind (i.e. re-launching my blog), you will need to deal with two major challenges (or at least these are the ones I see most often in myself, my clients, my friends and colleagues). These obstacles… Read more »

The Completion Initiative

I look back and remember the faded placard stuck to my mother’s refrigerator door as it traveled from Elmont, Long Island to Stuyvesant Town to Battery Park, NYC. It read, “It’s not what we have done that plagues us, but rather what we’ve left undone!” That quote always has stayed with me. Between the hundreds… Read more »

“Are you “ready” or are you just “ready to be ready,” for luscious life partnership?”

Many a client has come to me saying in a somewhat (from time to time) frantic tone, “I’m ready for a relationship,” to which I ask them that very same question. Most everyone responds  with an earnest, “Oh I’m definitely ready!,” but when I dig deeper, it becomes abundantly clear, that they are just “ready… Read more »

We have everything we need RIGHT NOW to flourish

We have everything we need right now to flourish, and it’s not about waiting for our circumstances in our lives to be perfect or ideal for that to happen. Case in point – A few weeks ago, we arrive at our old farmhouse in upstate NY, and Charlie, my sweetheart calls me over, “Come quick,… Read more »

Luscious Living in 5 Steps

With the statistics of almost 20% of American women suffering with adrenal burnout or heading towards it and the men not trailing that far behind, we have become a culture of human doings versus human beings. We’re paying the price—and it’s a high one. The average attention span is 3-6 seconds (this is not people… Read more »

Shift Happens! Moving From Criticism to Curiosity

I am fascinated by the turnaround I witness in my clients when they shift their focus from criticism to curiosity. Especially starting with themselves! When they are in self-critical mode, their body is rigid, and their voice is somewhat strained and tight. Conversely, when they get curious, their whole being changes – they relax, breathe… Read more »

Are you making a lion out of a donkey!?

There’s a poignant story that my dear friend and coach, Elizabeth told me that I find particularly inspiring. It was based on a parable first written by Emmett Fox many, many years ago. There was a woman who was so irritated by the local donkey in her neighbor’s yard. He would bray all day, and… Read more »
