Happy Merry

 I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year… –Charles Dickens   Hello all!  Boy time is getting away from me.  Evidently I’m still holding onto the illusion that blogs post by themselves, composed by fairies in some mystical writer’s realm.  Alas, it’s still just us mortals over here, so you haven’t heard from anyone in the Blogging Department in quite some time.  My bad. So, given all that, I wanted to pop in, say that I am back in St. Louis for the winter and offer a Happy Merry to Whatever You May Celebrate This Time of...

Scared and sacred are spelled with the same letters. Awful proceeds from the same root word as awesome. Terrify and terrific. Every negative experience holds the seed of transformation. –Alan Cohen   Hello beautiful souls!  I wanted to do some updates about the goings on around here, especially about the retreats.  Many of you are asking about them, so this seems like the best way to do it. First, yes– all of the spots for the New Mexico retreats are full, at least for this year.  We will probably do a larger, longer group retreat next year in Abiquiu, NM, with the option...

A Declaration of Self Care

Hello all!  This is a wonderful post originally from Mara Glatzel.     I love this, I preach this, I believe this and I wanted to pass it along.  Allow yourself to work with yourself today, and be gentle with you.  We are all we have, sweet friends, and we are enough.  You are enough.   There is enough today…enough time, enough money, enough love, enough breath.  So for just a second, relax your shoulders.  Take a deep breath and allow that Calm Voice to whisper encouragement in your ears.   There is only now, so deepen into the moment and allow yourself to Be Here Now.  You are worth...

Hello all! First, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who stopped by for the Sustainable Yard Tour.  I think we had about 100 or so people here, and a good time was had by all.    We met a lot of other garden geeks and seed savers, as well as a great number of local foodies and just all around cool people.   We were also able to connect with Andy from the International Institute, about the cool project they are doing, called the Global Farms Initiative. The International Institute Global Farms Initiative is an agriculture-based career training program for refugees with two training locations:...

I’m Actually Not That Busy, Either

  Hello all! I saw this post and wanted to share it.   I’m coming off a several day silent retreat and this was a perfect reminder as I do re-entry. This is a a total cut and paste, I have added nothing to it.  The original post from SuperHero Life, by Andrea Scher, can be found  here.     Enjoy 🙂     This is my new mantra: I’m actually not that busy.   It doesn’t sound spiritual or like something you heard at your yoga class. It might not even feel true the first few times you say it!  But it’s changing my life.   My aha moment came when I saw this graphic...

You are not broken. You are more ready than you think.

Hello all.  This is a straight cut/paste from Mara Glatzel’s blog, and we thank her profusely for posting it.  So, if you had the world’s undivided attention for 10 seconds, what would you say? Without further ado, here is her beautiful post, the main site can be found here.  You Are Not Broken. You Are More Ready Than You Think. On Thursday, I came across a prompt from Erika Lyremark from The Daily Whip that said: If you had the world’s undivided attention for 10 seconds, what would you say?  My fingers started to itch and I clung to a voice that begged: your truth. 10 seconds....
