On The Lake Of Life

Posted on February 21, 2021

If your heart and mind need a little rest and refueling, please join me for my FREE weekly Mindfulness Meditation Monday (MMM) session from 8-8:30 pm PST. Last week, we explored mindfulness in relation to the nature of our mind. This week, we will continue to dig a little deeper into the mystery that it is our…

Understanding the Nature of Our Minds

Posted on February 15, 2021

Happy President’s Day and Mindfulness Meditation Monday! As we read more reports on the mental health crisis caused by the pandemic, it becomes urgently important for all of us to educate ourselves on the foundation of mental health— exploring and understanding the nature of our own mind.  Just as each parent, for the well-being of their child, works with and around their personality, each of us for our own well-being has to work with and around our own mind.

However, many of us have…

Our sameness and differences, in hindsight, have all surfaced in our opinions and experiences of the pandemic, of racial separation, and even of our political climate. We have begun to learn to let go of…
