As you may know, December 21st marks the shortest day of the year (winter solstice) as well as the closest Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in 800 years–both of which are a very big deal in astrology. Now, while I don’t believe the alignment of the planets has any direct impact on our lives here on earth–any more than I believe that the … Read More

Don’t Take a Deep Breath

AdminUncategorized

Most people who receive my newsletter care a lot about their health.  And typically we think of good health as being mostly about eating right and getting sufficient exercise.  And while “shoulding” on ourselves for not exercising more is close to the universal self-judgment, we can go a lifetime without exercising– though it may be shorter and feel considerably less … Read More

Is Anyone Else Feeling Like a Prisoner?

AdminUncategorized

Back in April, when the pandemic and Shelter-in-Place was first upon us, a friend of mine said he felt like a prisoner.

AdminPersonal Power

I’ve got the good cancer!

AdminUncategorized

Many of my close friends and family are currently battling cancer.  Leukemia, lung cancer, breast cancer, melanoma.  On a daily basis they deal with terrible  discomfort and fatigue, invasive procedures, and many, many, many trips to oncologists, testing centers, specialists, and hospitals for surgeries.  The fear and heaviness of it all ripples out across families and communities.

The day after my book launch—Amazon #1 bestseller thanks to you all!—I found out that I had an obscure form of skin cancer.  The good news is that it’s a very slow growing kind of cancer, but the bad news is that I’ve had it for over ten years!  In the immediate term it seems to be responding well to … Read More
