This morning, a person suffering from Long Covid – an instance where the Coronavirus becomes deeply embedded in the individual’s body – presented with extreme anxiety.

Mental health recharge (March 17-22)

The world never stops but we can at any time. I do every day – snatching a quiet reflective breath whenever I think of it, or perhaps 20 minutes before breakfast. But sometimes, it is good to take more time, to go deeper, to spend time with your loved ones so that relationships are fresh and alive and not running on AI.

Reflections from the Trail – Elwha River 2022

I often tell my clients that we spend too much time up in our heads in modern life, not fully present in our bodies and the full range of sensory experience. As we juggle work, family and a seemingly endless to-do list, we often rush through our lives without stopping to see the beauty that …

Mental Health Day in the Snowy Mountain Paradise – Mount Teneriffe

Last week, this body was enduring pain due to too much heavy lifting and gardening. A little secret – a good long walk naturally adjusts the spine, bringing it into alignment.  As usual, I always check the forecast before heading out into the mountains – morning showers in North Bend.  Not too bad I figured …

Responding to Violence with Love Instead of Fear

I can only dimly imagine what it must have been like for our elected Congressional representatives on January 6, 2021, ordered to lie on the floor and prepare to don a gas mask, with the sounds of gunfire and an racist armed mob echoing in the cavernous hallways of the US Capitol building. I think …

Embracing the Darkness

The darkness is fully upon us, and I invite her in so that I can know her more intimately. The darkness is not only in the form of winter, cold, and COVID aloneness, but of human depravity and ignorance in the time of the great unraveling. Our human civilization has wandered far from the path …
