Keepin' It Real: Bolinas for Holiday

Signing off for a week of reading, doodling, strolling, yoga, meditating, cooking, writing, and, oh yeah, hanging out with my kids and DH. Guess where I am? Thinking I need more honor system in my life, like this Gospel Farm stand. Let’s develop that idea…. Back in a week or two. Officially off duty as…

Fried: Why You Burn Out by Joan Borysenko, PhD

  I‘m loving Joan Borysenko’s new book, Fried… except I think I’m fried. I hate it when that happens. I immerse myself, write and teach what I most need to learn. Joan refers to one symptom of burnout – the desire to take sabbaticals regularly – and that totally rings true for me, like an…

Organically Fit: Togs for The Dailey Method & Yoga

  I was imagining the rolled eyes at The Dailey Method, which is the exercise I favor and find better than working out with a trainer. But if you aren’t sporting the latest Lululemon during your workout, you’re a bit of a freak. Whatever. I think they know by now I’m a bit of a…

Prayer for Overwhelm

I want to shred the rad, but I’m a bit weary today. Need a little intervention, a dose of burn-out prevention. Not sure what flavor. Please renew my spirit and particularly my good humor. When I feel frustrated and like a victim/martyr: fill me with hope, the present moment and get me out of the…

Natural Health Magazine: Interview on Low Libido

Thrilled to be interviewed in Natural Health, published in the April/May 2011 issue. Most of what I said about hormones and how they modulate libido got cut. My main point that libido is extremely complex (and that 70% of the time there’s a hormonal component) but that there are many other factors including relationship connectivity…

Meet Your Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie

Nothing makes me happier than an anti-inflammatory smoothie with greens, berries, pea and rice protein (very hypoallergenic) and flax. Well, maybe containment of nuclear reactors in Japan, but that’s a topic for another day. There’s a concept I have found to be particularly true that goes like this: We need to reduce our antigenic load.…
