Couples

  1. Help them feel safe to speak openly and freely
  2. Hear each one in a way that s/he feels completely understood and “gotten” by me.
  3. Remove the blocks around their hearts by showing them how each has his/her own emotional subjective perspective, and give them the tools to hear and feel each other
  4. Build safety and trust between them by teaching them how to communicate with patience, care and compassion
  5. Engage them in practices which will support and build upon their sense of partnership and unity

Being With

Groggy from waking up early, I boarded the 7:30am bus from Philadelphia back to NY, hoping I would find adjacent empty seats so that I could comfortably spread my body.  The first level was full so I climbed up to the second tier.  At first glance I could not find any empty seats, but gratefully []

Happy New Year!

In honor of this auspicious year we are ushering in, I would like to share a story of another time in my life that reminds me of the kind of turbulence and possibilities we are currently facing.  The story is told through my eyes as a teenager in a letter I wrote to a memorable person. []

A Gift You Can Give Yourself

It’s Christmas, a time to celebrate the birth of Chirst, the birth of a spirit that followed his inner directive and lived his truth. Somehow this holiday has lost much of its true meaning and has become more focused on materialism and consumption. If there is one gift you can give yourself, it is the []

Dear Kind Soul

I recently came across this letter I wrote many years ago and think this is a good time to share it. Dear Kind Soul, It was a striking, sunny, spring Sunday afternoon. The air was crisp and dry. A light wind was softly brushing by the sea of people milling about on the steps of []

Being There for Each Other

It’s been over a month since I have blogged.  So much has happened since, most of it extremely challenging.  Gratefully, I have been blessed with generous people in my life who helped me every step of the way.  And just as gratefully, I have learned to ask for support when I need it.   This blog []

Life, Family and Love

I started writing a blog a week ago, when we returned to New York. As a matter of fact I called it, “We are back.” It began with reflections and observations about our amazing trip. It was interrupted by an urgent family medical matter. I will continue that blog another time. This blog I am []
