I wanted to let you know I will be embarking on an inner journey most of February on a monthlong meditation retreat. I will therefore be unavailable to see clients. If you have been thinking about coming in for an unresolved issue or for a tune-up NOW is the time to do it. I will be seeing clients through January 26th. I will have a few days at the end of February before heading to a Symposium and will be back full time March 7th.
The last of the Fall/Winter classes is happening January 18th 
Transforming Stress:
 An Introduction to the work of Conscious Embodiment.

Mindfulness - Awareness and Wisdom
As we begin a new year it is often a time of reflection on our life, goals, intentions, and possibly putting into effect resolutions and changes. A key factor for this is mindfulness. As I see it there are two main factors in mindfulness - awareness and wisdom. Many people are familiar with the awareness aspect of mindfulness which is knowing what is currently happening in the body, thoughts, emotions, and environment. The wisdom aspect allows us to know whether what is currently happening is in alignment with our deepest desires, and whether the activities of body, speech, and mind are contributing toward the well-being of ourselves and others. As one embarks on making a change, the wisdom aspect is important to keep in mind. Sometimes however we can be a little hard on ourselves in the process of change when things do not go according to our expectations, and our activities are not in alignment. A good balancing factor is compassion. Compassion for our human nature. As we run into obstacles and set backs we can have compassion for ourselves and then reset our compass in alignment with our intentions as guided by wisdom and the awareness of what is currently happening. Wishing you much happiness, integrity, awareness, wisdom, and compassion on your journey.
