Hello all….

I’ve launched this site as an opportunity for us to explore how to live with our hearts open, willing to shine our light during these unprecedented times, willing to explore the judgments that hold us back from daring to become who we are meant to be. It’s hard to hold steady; we wobble, we fall. But if we fall one hundred times, we rise up one hundred and one. Love never fails.

My blog will share stories from my decade as a hospice social worker, stories about the courage it takes to risk our vulnerability, about how to make room in our hearts for grief, and what it means to honor our shadow as well as our light. Stories about how to find the sacred in the everyday details of our lives.

If you’d like an automatic notice when I post a new blog, please subscribe on the right side of any page.

Meantime, listen to Living Gently With Grief, a podcast I did with Dona Bumgarner on Nurturing Habitat.

Wishing you all peace and joy. May you continue to dance with the Big Sacred.
