Friday Reflections

Every Friday, I reflect on the week that has just passed by doing a little senses exercise.  This practice is a gentle, easy way to tune into how we are doing, what we are experiencing, and what we are grateful for while more acutely tuning into our senses.  It’s a whole heart exercise with plenty […]

Immerse Yourself

The first college level course I taught was a seminar on the creative process.  I LOVED teaching this class– looking at the theories behind the creative process while practicing their impact with our own creativity.  I try really hard to come up with creative assignments as an educator, but the most creative assignments I’ve ever […]

If I only have one more chance to tell you…

I was reading before bed one night near the end of the semester, when a feeling of urgency came over me. Have I told them everything, I wondered.  Have I given them every bit of wisdom that I have to help them with their self-acceptance journeys? And so I started writing down what I wanted […]
