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...

Gardening is the most therapeutic and defiant act you can do, especially in the city.  Plus, you get strawberries. ~~ Ron Finley   Hello all!   In honor of Mother’s Day, I spent the weekend planting a crazy organic garden, playing in the dirt.  I planted about 60 or so cucumbers, aka Pickle Seeds.  I planted an equally ridiculous amount of tomatoes and assorted other edibles…  Some peppers, more salad greens, tons of sunflower seeds and a variety of other things.  The garlic I planted last fall is coming up like crazy, the herbs are on full display and things are blooming...

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....

“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls…” ~~Jeremiah 6:16 Hello all  A friend and I just returned from Santa Fe, where we did some hiking, some writing and a lot of playing.  We are working on a book about Spirituality and Grief, and I cannot think of a better place to ponder such things than the desert. I snapped this picture near Skull Bridge, at the Continental Divide Trail (CDT)  near Abiquiu, New Mexico.  The Trail head is just over that bridge and heads south into the Rio...
