Recently I have been hit with a major hormonal imbalance which has affected me in every way…my energy, responsibilities, desires, appetite, sleep, mood, and my meditation.
I was so frustrated. Could not do what I wanted, what I thought I needed. Could not be counted on. Meetings cancelled.
I needed a lot of patience to let the body heal. I needed silence to hear the lessons. Needed humility to hear my weaknesses. I had to first trust that I could heal.
I had to go deeper into being. Had to let go of what I wanted to do. Feel deeper. More introversion, deeper level of honesty.
Had to slow down the mind. Listen to my heart.
And with courage I am healing everyday.

I have been on this beautiful journey of mindfulness for the last 11 years. I am a trained and experienced elementary school teacher. I took some time off teaching to start an orthodontist practice with my partner and raised two children. My interactions with administrators, office staff, teachers, dentists, orthodontists, parents and children, has taught me that we have a great capacity to give.
True mindfulness is practiced with the first thought that we wake up with, with each feeling we choose, with each word we speak and how we execute every decision. It is a dance that is performed with love, trust, honesty, integrity, determination, courage, faith and deep peace.
