Staying Grounded

Tone Deaf? I’m Listening and Trying

I’ve tried writing this post a half dozen times. Then something happens in the news, and everything feels inappropriate. Every time I try to write something down, I worry about sounding tone-deaf. But a wordsmith also cannot stay silent. I believe in equal rights and offering everyone a fair chance. I don’t want to see anyone mistreated and I detest racism, bigotry, religious intolerance, gender bias, ageism, sexism and any action or words that denigrate an individual, group or nationality. I haven’t marched in a protest because I am uncomfortable in large crowds and worry about getting sick.

One webinar becomes a weekly entreaty to sign up for a class series or purchase coaching sessions. One […]

The Four Pillars of Natural Healing- DailyOM CoFounder Madisyn Taylor

I am a big fan of the nuggets of inspiration I receive in my inbox from DailyOM. So I was delighted to receive a pitch about its Cofounder, Madisyn Taylor, whose best-selling books include” DailyOM: Inspirational Thoughts for a Happy Healthy and Fulfilling Day,” and “DailyOm: Learning To Live.” Madisyn’s new book is “Unmedicated,” which chronicles her struggle with anxiety and panic attacks from an early age. At one point Madisyn’s doctor told her, “You’re the sickest person I know, and I have no idea what is wrong with you.” Madisyn discusses how she weaned herself off prescription medications that were doing more harm than good […]
