The Ripple Effect

  When the pandemic hit, people moved out of the city. One effect of that exodus was that Broadway actors lost their jobs. But what about the ripple effect that their leaving had? What about the dishwasher in the restaurant where Patti LuPone bought her coffee? Or the manicurist Audra McDonald visited regularly? What about the people who worked in…

Spiritual Concierge

  Sage burning and full-moon intention ceremonies? Hypnotherapy and shaman healing? The trend in some high-end New York City residences is to offer a full menu of spiritual concierge services.Β  While most of the offerings may be a tad too esoteric for the typical Empty Nester that I usually work with, one option from the menu makes a lot of…

How Can Chicken and Corn Lay the Groundwork for a Long, Fulfilled Life?

  • Post category:Mindfulness

Picture a little girl roughhousing in the yard with her dad. He tosses her in the air then leaves her to start the lawn mower and tackle the backyard chores. Soon he’ll be rehydrating from the garden hose and deciding what time to fire up the grill for their healthy chicken and corn dinner. After the barbecue, they will test…
