Happy Star Wars Day

With it being Star Wars Day and all today I thought I’d look at what we can learn the Jedi Master himself – Yoda. “You will know when you are calm. At peace.” Yoda knows the benefits of meditation.  To calm your monkey mind, practice meditation.  Since I have started meditating so much has changed […]

Living your life’s purpose…

When I’m coaching a client (or myself for that matter) I always want to get to what their life purpose  is.  What makes them feel alive?  Most people can’t really answer that question when we begin.

Some ways to start loving yourself right now!

More Tarzan than just Zen!..

Move over meditation you have been eclipsed by the “supersized” dynamic relaxation of Sophrology! Sophrology is more like what Matthew McConaughey does in Wolf of Wall Street!  Think meditation on acid. More Tarzan than just Zen! Developed in the 1960’s in Spain and with its origins in Yoga, Sophrology has now jumped the Chanel and […]
