The paradox of life coaching is that your coach needs coaching just as much as you do. I learned that a few weeks ago when I took part in Handel Group’s Design Your Life Weekend. It wasn’t something that was expressly stated, rather it was embodied by our head coach Laurie Gerber. She made it perfectly clear that she is an imperfect being and indirectly invited us to accept our own imperfections by being so unapologetically Laurie. There is so much to say about what I learned and how I felt in my 2 day foray into The Handel Method,... Get the full story

  Girls’ education is critical to growth. Providing girls an education helps break the cycle of poverty, as educated women are less likely to marry early and against their will; less likely to die in childbirth; more likely to have healthy babies; and are more likely to send their children to school. Join Commit to Change on October 21st at Vermillion in working towards creating a new sustainable framework: one in which every girl  has the opportunity to realize her dreams and one in which her children have the opportunity to dream. Enjoy a uniquely curated wellness experience centered on each of... Get the full story

The month begins with Mercury still in retrograde. If you read my last post, you may recall that in the language of astrology, Mercury refers to mindset, communication and travel. When Mercury appears to move backwards in sky, it suggests an opportunity to review your progress over the past few months. What have you been doing since September 17th to review, retreat, reorganize and reconnect? Are you taking time to slow down and FOCUS before you hit “send”? Have you experienced any technical glitches and/or communication snafus? I can’t help but think of Judson McMillan, who until September 29th was... Get the full story

On Thursday, September 17th, the planet MERCURY turned RETROGRADE. Even if you know nothing about astrology, you may have heard this term before. Often it’s accompanied by curses and groans, and that’s a shame. Yes, all of the flights on American Airlines might be grounded because of a computer glitch. Or the entire country of Finland might be offline because there’s a transportation strike (these actually happened last week). But there’s much good that can be accomplished when the Messenger Planet appears to be retracing its steps. So here’s what MERCURY RETROGRADE is all about and what it may mean... Get the full story

I’m a conscious consumer. So you want to live more consciously. Great! But … where do you start? Well, the options can be a bit overwhelming. You can’t just wake up on Earth Day and “live sustainably” any more than you can wake up and run the New York City Marathon. It takes training, information gathering, practice, and working your way through challenges. But the other big thing about living sustainably is that it comes in a lot of flavors! And some of those flavors actually don’t work well together. For example, do you want to eat locally or organically?... Get the full story
