  • Let's be clear

    When we are clear, the world is clear to us.  When we have clarity of mind and heart, we know what to choose, where to go and whom to travel with.  When your body is clear – of chemical toxins, negative emotional residue, excess weight and mental chatter – your soul can proceed in the direction of goodness, truth and beauty.  When your body and mind and heart are all clear, you can move steadfastly in the direction of loving yourself.

  • PREPARING FOR A THANKSGIVING FEAST

    The history of Thanksgiving Day starts with much suffering (starvation and sickness) by the early New England Pilgrams. 

    Then they finally had a bountiful harvest assisted by helpful Indians.  The grateful Pilgrams declared a three-day feast to thank God; which they celebrated with their Indian friends. 

    Thanksgiving is a day of giving thanks for all of our blessings not just food.  Even though it has its roots with religious Pilgrams, it is also celebrated in a secular manner as well.  It is a great American  holiday.
