As this powerful hurricane blows all over the East coast, let’s once more pay homage to the power of Mother Nature, and affirm the safety for all who are affected.

Stay safe. Stay warm. Stay peaceful.

This weekend I am going on retreat to Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. After the busyness of the wedding and the stress of work, I am ready to take a short breather and spend some time relaxing on this beautiful campus. While I am not taking any workshops, there are class offerings, yoga, and meditation included in the price of the retreat, and I plan on taking full advantage of these. It should be beautiful in upstate New York at this time of year, and I am excited to see the fall foliage.

I encourage each of you to take a retreat at some point before the holiday season. You don’t have to travel far, or even spend any money. Take an afternoon or even an hour to yourself. Take a bath, bake something delicious, cuddle on the couch with a warm blanket and your favorite books. Every moment you devote solely to yourself creates more space for you to give to others.

I’ll be back Monday with pictures!

Over the last three months I have begun work on a book outline for adoption healing. My goal is to write about body, mind, and spirit healing for adoptees so that there is a focus on each crucial aspect of healing. Often books focus solely on the emotional aspects of adoption, but I would like to extend it to a more holistic perspective. I am including personal anecdotes, but would love to hear from others.

If you, or someone you know, is adopted and you would like to share your story with me, please email me at storiesofadoption@yahoo.com

Thank you!

Recently I was at a metaphysical bookstore,¬†Lantern House, and Shakti Gawain’s Living in the Light jumped out at me. I had read Creative Visualization¬†during the summer, so I was excited to see another title by her. I highly recommend this book. The language is simple and accessible, yet the concepts she discusses take a lifetime to work on. This is her second edition of the book, and according to Gawain, she spends more time talking about our shadow sides. She argues that we cannot live in the light if we cannot also accept the darkness. It is so true. Many times we want to live in peace and happiness and forget about the “bad things.” That is impossible. We must accept our shadows, whether they be anger, sadness, fear, or anything else. This is the key to healing.
