Your Destiny - January 2017

A whole lot is happening right now - for me personally, and for the planet.  Tomorrow is the inauguration of a new president, and I felt compelled to write something about this shift in energy.  Read this month's blog to explore... are we destined, or do we have some choice in the matter?  It's time to claim your own destiny!

Here's the quick updates to my schedule, with more info in the body of the newsletter.

• This Sunday is the Winter Retreat - Sound, Energy, and Intention!  If you'd still like to join us, there are 5 spaces available - information and registration on my website.   You can also attend just for the concert from 4-6pm!

• MMYM is off the calendar for now - but the radio show is coming back!

• MBZ Yoga TT starts later this month - see their website for information

• I have one opening in my Sacred Journey Women's Psychotherapy Group.  If you are interested, Contact Me.

• Mark your calendars!  Spring Day-Long Retreat - "Awakening Creative Energy": Saturday, April 29th at Ananda Valley Farm in Half Moon Bay.  Registration opens in February!




Your Destiny

Whoa – with a title like “Your Destiny”, we’re all bound to give pause. We’ve probably all thought about our destiny at a few points in our lives. Is destiny pre-determined? Is it a well-defined path that we just plod along? Or do we have something to do with the unfolding of events in our lives?

Destiny is, in my opinion, a misunderstood word. We often associate it with the definition of “a pre-determined course of events.” Sometimes, destiny feels like that, as if things had to turn out a certain way, and there was nothing we could do about it.

But destiny is far more than just a fixed roller-coaster ride that you’re committed to and at the whim of as soon as you buckle up. No, destiny is a co-creation that has everything to do with your choices and your attention.

There's still room in this year's Yoga TT!

Join me for another amazing journey through the Mind-Body Zone Yoga TT and Advanced Studies program.  We have an excellent faculty of teachers, including director Lynn Cheng Kaylor.  You don't have to want to be a yoga teacher to benefit from this in-depth exploration of yoga practice and philosophy.

Spiritual Quotes


"Remember, even in the most discordant frequencies, the Prime Frequency exists.  You can resonate with that frequency, and through that, find the trace of it in others.  This will allow you to find that place of resonance, no matter what other frequencies exist."

~ Ayleen Augustine, DC, from Frequencies


"The quality of our lives is defined by what we focus on in each moment." 

~ Leslie Temple-Thurston, from Returning to Oneness


"I may not be in total control of what happens in my life, but I certainly am in charge of how I choose to perceive my experience."

~ Jill Bolte Taylor, from My Stroke of Insight
