Jizo Therapy: Kintsugi and The Broken Places

A funny thing happens after sitting in meditation for a long time, gazing at my Jizos, who are gazing back at the not-me — my mind becomes at ease. I promise it only took around 20 years for me to stop controlling my breath and just let it be. For years, my mind would always [...]

Jizo: A Gift for Mother’s Day

I don’t know when Mother’s Day is this year. I know it’s in May, but my mom is gone, so I kind of avoid it. If you’ve lost your mom, maybe you can relate.  But loving my mom and loving the Jizos I have created moved me to contemplate Mother’s Day. Motherhood. Jizo. […]

What I Heard & What You Said

Hey you guys… My first children’s book is available now on iTunes, with me reading it aloud!  This is almost too fun. It’s called What I Heard & What You Said. So often we think we know what someone has said.  But if we repeat back what we Think We Heard, the other person says, [...]

Adrenaline & Holidays: Slow Down & Seek Peace

Oh, gosh, but I wish the phrase Happy Holidays were not so loaded with tension and expectations.  As you read this, you may be buzzing on sugar, experiencing pressure from inside and out, surrounded by speedy messages that drive us to the “give-me syndrome”.  We may have family and friends who expect us to be [...]
