Good evening and thank you for your patience regarding the absence of the yoga class last week.

1000 day commitment to self improvement: October, 2014

This weekend marks the 1000th day of a daily meditation commitment. Imagine: just three months shy of three years of each day, without fail, despite travel and school, despite work, without a break in that commitment, a dedication to stilling the mind for a short time each day. In this case I chose a powerful healing meditation called Gyan Chakra Kriya meditation (www.3HO.org). This is a meditation to improve intuition, clear out stored anger; realize my reality and to allow prosperity to flow.

Confabulation: a clinical mental disorder

Confabulation: Clinical Mental Disorder

Upon recently completing a six-day conference on the mind and the benefits of
meditation, one of many terms popped out as a most fascinating concept for exploration. An
understanding of the word confabulation offers an opportunity to appreciate the complexity of
the mind.

Re-introducing healgracefully

It has been close to a year since I have participated in this website. So much has happened that this last year has ben a blur. Now with wonderful family events, and lots of schooling behind me, I intend to concentrate on my practice and continue learning what it takes to integrate numerous modalities of healing into a currently severely injured if not outright dying health care system.

Settling in at the new office

As we enter into the Labor day weekend, I want to offer my sincere gratitude to all the wonderful angels, friends, family, who helped me transfer so smoothly to the new office. This has been challenging for me, for the new staff, and for the staff left behind. It has been especially difficult for the numerous wonderful patients who have been displaced during this process.
I offer many thanks to Dr. Holder and his family/ staff for allowing this transition with ease.
The details of the new facility are noted in the contact section but I repeat it here for convenience:

New Location Beginning July 8th, 2013

After a stressful month, Dr. Del Sordi and I have new offices from which to continue our practices. Due to time constraints, we are not in the same office. We are both very sad that we could not work together at this time and many of you know that we have worked together off and on for about six years separated by babies born, and other prior commitments along the way.

Times they are a changin'

June 2013 has been quite a month and the explosion of change continues.

After 4 years working at Comprehensive Family Medicine, I will shortly be moving to a new location. I expect to be situated in a new location by mid July and I welcome anyone interested in joining me.

All challenges bring opportunity and this is no exception. It has been a very stressful transition and I look forward to continuing to provide the best care possible.

Please stay tuned and I will let you know where both Dr. DelSordi and I will be going very soon.

Three inspiring words

Through many conversations with patients lately, I have found three words that have the ability to continue us on our path with purpose and peace no matter what drama surrounds us.
The premise of these words is that we chose or were assigned to the planetary adventure this lifetime to learn and grow, and above all experience.
The three words/phrases for our life purpose:
1. seek joy
2. be curious
3. feel gratitude
Ok, easier said than done, of course, and I believe this may be due to fear and incorrect beliefs about our purpose here.
