How I Cracked My Voice Wide Open

I was immersed in music from the time I was conceived. My parents were opera singers and my father also played oboe, while my mother played piano. As an embryo, I floated in a sound womb, music weaving my very being. I popped out singing, or close to it. My father loved to tell the […]

Health Currents Radio: Um, Er, Uh, Like, You Know…

I was on the phone with my friend from way back, Ellen Goldsmith, talking about my upcoming interview with her on her blog radio show, Health Currents Radio. Reflecting back on our talk, I realized something had changed in the way she spoke. She didn’t fill the silences with um’s, uh huh’s, or any other […]

Your Voice Is an Amazing Tool

Have you thought of your voice as a tool? As a way to connect and communicate? I don’t mean the words you say, but your actual voice. Your voice is something you use every day, unless you’re on silent retreat. And every time you use your voice you’re having an effect whether you think about […]

Whenever my yoga teacher goes off for a training, she returns renewed and inspired. And we can be certain that something new will be happening in class. A new twist, a new perspective, new connections… Usually, she’s returning from a training with Rodney Yee. This week, she returned from a weekend at Omega with another […]

Speak up! Speak out!

Many of  my women clients and friends have told me that they’re fine speaking one on one, but put them in a group, and they get tongue tied. They hesitate to express a point or ask a question, much less to challenge or to lead. They feel like they need to be drawn out, or […]

A Calm Place

I’ve just returned from a few short days away where I visited one of my favorite places, a quiet preserve in Maine. Walking through the fairy forest, breathing in the balsam, catching the sidelong glances of light shimmering here and not there, then arriving at the water to sit on a rock and watch the […]
