Fatigue Relief: Bolsters, Blankets, Blocks & Belts – Marla Apt

Why not a vigorous practice? When someone is deeply fatigued, a dynamic practice, like a double espresso, can be depleting, despite its initial invigorating jolt. Restorative yoga, on the other hand, soothes the senses, so they stop urging the mind and nervous system to react and instead turn their attention inward. READ MORE

The Whole Enchilada: Baxter Bell & Melina Meza at the Ranch

One of the things I love about our Whole Enchilada week (this is our 3rd and final time doing it) is that each year it is different enough that past attendees get to experience and learn something new, and people who are coming for the first time also get so much out of our time together.

Rain, Sleet or Snow: Summer is almost underway

Death & Transformation – India Supera

After Lillian Michalsky and Jan Lovetts’ deaths, I wanted to put out a letter on death and dying but in writing it I discovered that I have no answers, only questions. And certainly no wise words or deep understanding. I came to a deep conclusion: I wished I knew now about death and dying what I felt I knew when I was 20. So instead of giving advice I will tell stories. READ MORE

We will continue to work together on our United Nations work and whatever other wonderful things show up as our assignments, as Jean would say. We would love for you to join us, to help create and bless the memorial gardens. READ MORE
