You might be wondering why most of my many posts from this page and my Facebook page are no longer available at the moment.
My writings of the last 3 years, related to the film "Walk Talk Dance Sing," will be consolidated into a very special video format for all to enjoy!
These are the posts I have created daily, based on all the wellness research, inspirations, and explorations that have moved me forward. I had no intention at the outset to put these all together into a compliation. I was simply expressing my "passionate revelations" in the moment. It wasn't until a colleague pointed out that I had created quite a prolific collection of musings and insights that I realized the enormity of the teachings and writings I had shared. She recommended that this body of work be compiled and offered as an entertaining and enlightening supplement to the film--a source for deeper understanding and encouragement.
As we began to dig into the work I have done, literally thousands of hours of "mulling," we quickly realized that this will be a very progressive and timeless resource truly unlike any other "health and wellness" offering on the market today.
With hundreds of articles to choose from, we have selected the most potent and popular writings and there are currently fifty original pieces in editing mode.
I will keep you posted as this comes into being! Along with the richness of the film, I am excited to be creating this unique and empowering "Walk Talk Dance Sing" appendum for all who seek vitality and joy.
More info to come...

Today's Unraveling Wellness Mull: Pulling Weeds
When we "plant" the blame for Hashimoto's on things like gut issues, adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalance, antibiotic use, gluten, etc, we are hovering over the symptomatic superficial surface. The ROOT of all these issues lies much deeper.
When we dig in and look deeper, we see very clearly where all this dis-ease stems from.
When we ask WHY are there these "gut destroying bulimic tendencies" plaguing so many women, we see a root of control issues, perfectionism, self-loathing, and fear.
When we ask WHY of hormonal imbalance, we see the ugly root of an environment bombarded with estrogen, and again, when we ask WHY is this happening, we see haphazardness, greed, and a disconnect from the harmonious ways of Mother Nature.
Likewise, we see the use of birth control pills that obliterate the female cycle with the synthetic disruption of natural hormonal health, and when we ask WHY is there this willingness to shut-down this natural flow, we see another unconscious disconnect-- a lack of reverence and respect for the powerful female energetic system.
When we ask WHY is gluten wreaking havoc on human beings, we see that it is human beings that wreaked havoc on gluten, making it an unrecognizable alien food form-- a gross exercise in haphazardness, greed, and the fear of lack.
When we ask WHY the over-use of antibiotics and other pharmaceutical chemicals, we see a society hooked on sickly lifestyles and demanding speedy-fixes and a "health care" system that, in its own equal laziness and greediness, obliges by obliterating one ailment only to set patients up for more dis-ease-- which is "neither healthy nor caring" --and when we ask WHY is this happening, we see a firmly rooted arrogant and ignorant disregard for our shared "non-hierarchical" humanity.
When we ask WHY are adrenal glands burning out, we see people living in a chronic state of "fight or flight or freeze," with angry defensiveness as the standard response to life matters, and when we ask WHY is that happening, we see a world rooted in unacknowledged trauma, struggle and strife, push and pull, ruled by fear.
It is the answers to all of these questions, and many more "rooted beliefs", that we are called to address: these are "the twisted, tangled weeds we need to pull out" in order to eradicate the spread of dis-ease.
If we choose not to, by pretending we don't see what we see and don't know what we know, it stands to reason that the infected roots will deepen, the weeded path widen, and the dis-ease will flourish.
This is the evolutionary "unraveling" story of "Walk Talk Dance Sing."
“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
