It was a spectacular island to visit. I don't think that I have ever been anywhere that had as much visible wild and marine life.  There were  350  pound Loggerhead turtles,

Today  was the second session of the meditation class that I am giving at the assisted living facility where my Uncle Harry is living.  I have offered to do this group as a way of giving back to the organization that has greatly improved my Uncle's  quality of  life.  I am very grateful to this organization.  When I teach, , I am usually  learning  a great deal  as well .  Yes, we are reviewing mindfulness practices including deep breathing, visualizations, self hypnosis and meditation.

My past life as a Hippie

Last fall, I went to Sedona, Arizona  with my wonderful friend and colleague, Hathi.  She generously invited me to share her time share .  I vaguely remember visiting Sedona during my incarnation as a hippie in the 70"s. As a hippie, I actually traveled thousands of miles across the United States, Canada, Mexico , Central America and Europe. It was a wonderful and safer  time to explore the world  .  During that time, I also visited Sedona  and it was" simply"  a beautiful sacred area.  I did not know about vortices, crystal energies, and healing powers.
