Wise Sage or Innocent Child?

wisesage_innocentchild_spirituality_conniehabash_counseling_communityFrom a young age, I’ve been attracted to spirituality. In the 80’s, I followed channelers, investigated astrology, read tarot cards, collected crystals, and did a Native American vision quest. In the 90’s, I did shamanic drumming, read mystical texts, discovered yoga, studied world religions, and sat for my first meditation. My spiritual pursuits continue to this day.

Ready to Relax

relax_conniehabash_counseling_spirituality_meditation_menlopark (692x1024)School’s out and summer is here. I’m ready to relax – how about you?

What I realize, though, is that I really didn’t have to wait until summer. I could have learned to relax all along.

We tend to carry so much tension in our bodies – running our lives by the clock, stressing about deadlines or bills, rushing to the next appointment, working longer hours at work or on homework. Is it all really worth it? Continue Reading »
