Reality is continuously challenging our deeply held beliefs, expectations, and assumptions… foiling even our best anti inflammatories laid plans.  It’s in the moments of greatest uncertainty that we can get contracted in our fear or practice waking up to …

MARRIAGE, BABY… BREATH.

“Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity to be of service.” -Robert Collier My practice always reminds me to start right where I am, just as I am.  Often the most difficult part of any practice (and perhaps all of life) is simply showing up… over and over and over again.
