A Warm Winters Guided Imagery Meditation on Gratitude
Guided Imagery offers us an opportunity to calm our minds and feel deep appreciation for the beautiful things in our lives. For many of us, the world moves along so quickly, and the endless stream of appointments, phone calls, emails, and other Things That Need To Be Done Next continually distracts us from the all important step of positive feedback. The nature of our world is such that many decisions need to be made by the unconscious levels of the mind. Unless we create a clear, compelling image of the way we want to be and the life we want to create, that part of us may head in the wrong direction. And with so many negative messages (eg, economic woes, climate change, illness, pollution, politics), it is easy to lose our way and succumb to the toxicity of stress and depression. Actually, there are many more positives within than negatives, and here is a way to make these known to your faithful unconscious mind – to really assume leadership in your life – by touching the positive experiences of the recent past and connecting them to the deepest level of your being. In this way you are setting your compass – and empowering the behaviors and experiences you want more of in your life. So find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed for ten minutes and recharge!

Coronavirus: How to Dispel Fear and Resist Viral Infection (Free Heart-to-Heart Talk, Guided Imagery, & More)
This is a very troubling time for each of us as individuals, for our families, our nation and our world as a whole. Remember, you are not in this alone, we are in it together. At times like this it is also well to remember Weiji, the Chinese word and character for “crisis,” which is said to be made up of two separate characters, Wei 危, meaning Danger, and Ji 机 meaning opportunity. Success comes when we see the danger, confront it, and find the opportunity that is always hidden within the crisis. For me, it is an opportunity to share with you some of the very powerful tools I have developed over the last 50 years of working on a very intimate level with people confronting all sorts of major life problems: from catastrophic loss to serious infection, from childhood trauma to metastatic cancer, and everything in between. As the world shuts down to stop the spread of this infectious disease and people are more isolated, you have the opportunity to learn some very important skills; learn to dispel fear, build resilience, and strengthen your body’s ability to heal and fight off infection from the comfort (and privacy) of your own home. Virtual Town Hall Meeting In early March, as we were beginning to see the pandemic emerging, our community got together for our first Virtual Town Hall Meeting. Our purpose was twofold: To inform the community at-large about what is likely to happen in the near future coming down the pike and To offer some guidance about why we should begin to isolate ourselves to enhance our ability to protect ourselves and others from the virus. My presentation was rerecorded and I want to offer it to you now. You can listen to the podcast (top of this page), or watch the video below (re-recorded and re-titled Calm COVID Fear, Anxiety, Stress: Strengthen Immune System) If you’d like to watch the original virtual town hall meeting you may do so here.
