  1. 1. I wanted to become a Doctor or a Lawyer-neither of which I am...

    2. Probably watching a Mr. Bean movie..

    3. Always to watch my back...

    4. I suppose Sankes too, however my 2 biggest Fears are: Unruly crowds & Poisonous Vapors; I was exposed to both in the past.

    5. Cant really think of any...

    6. A New Question I would like to add:  Who was were the most influential people in your life growing up? I would have to say, my Uncle Rob, who was a Protestant Minister

        who for many years always showed a unique interest in me & my Siblings' EducationCareer and any Sports we liked, especially, Baseball. He gave me my first Baseball glove; also he was a huge Boston Red Sox fan.



    Share a little more about yourself and let us know something that most people don't know about you.

    For instance...
    What did your childhood self yearn to be when he/she/they grew up?
    When was the last time you laughed until you cried?
    What was your biggest mistake turned lesson?
    What are you afraid of, big or small?
    What unique quirks do you have?

    This list of questions is by no means exhaustive of where this can go. Use your imagination to dig for something wild/surprising/unusual or share something totally 'normal' (whatever normal is) and relatable.

  2. Trips to the Ocean if possible; if not, then listening or watching Great Meditators!

    Then when I need an immediate escape I grab my Camera and go Shooting! That for me, becomes Mindfulness Photography! Everthing outside of my Lens is outside of my Lens becomes irrelevant.For example, I focused sharply on this Robin because his Sweet song caught my ears and eyes! He even had Spiked feathers on his head!:)185FB65F-88E5-4118-A216-861ACB0B08E2_1_201_a.thumb.jpg.67e2d6787d88d3b07861d1be3c14adfb.jpg

  3. From MindandLife.org:

    “On July 6th, Mind & Life honors the Dalai Lama’s birthday with the release of “Evolution of the Heart.” The 37-minute film chronicles conversations between the Dalai Lama, evolutionary biologist David Sloan Wilson, and social scientist Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela. The film emerged from a 2019 Mind & Life event, “Conversations on Compassion, Interconnection, and Transformation,” held in Dharamsala, India”.

    Much Insights can be learned here!! .eg. "Love & Compassion". From "Forgiveness To Repair". 

    Hope you like!!

  4. Generally, when I am watching the ebb & flow of the ocean tides up in RI along the Narragansett shores, especially watching the Surfers catching many waves...for the changing tides have an enticing way of  possessing you with many Present moments, on purpose & yet, arousing an enticing curiosity without judgements.

    As I sit on the Beachwall eating a Take-out Clam Chowda, as we say up in Rhode Island, along with a small order of Stuffed Quahogs the distinct aroma is simply amazing! You would have to be there to fully experience what I am saying! That soothes my mind.IMG_4098.thumb.jpg.5b7048a0207f9ad14c474c53390a4002.jpg

  5. Hi Jane,

    Welcome! Initially, Jane,  check out this Free resource:

               https://www.score.org/find-mentor     That is a where I began.

    As with any new Business venture, hiring Coaching services should be a piece of the pie just like having a Business Bank Acct. Sometimes that may involve investing in various Workshops, etc.

    Since you are servicing the US States, you may consider joining your Local Chamber of Commerce, Professional Organizations, Churches, etc. By investing in some of those, you may then receive Free services. The initial Investment is priceless, IMHO.

    I cant say enough about checking out B2B Networking groups too!.

    Anyway, looks like you are off to Great Start!!

    Again, welcome aboard!

  6. Hi Melissa,

    Welcome! I may be acting cautiously; I hardly would not expect for anyone giving that kind of advice; my suggestion with Medical injuries, you may be wise to consult with your Primary Care Physician, since we cannot pretend to be Doctors here; seeking Movement advice would be too presumptuous for anyone to give that kind of advice; RE: Meditations, that's different.

    Being a Beginner, always would advise to begin with the Basics.

    See our whole list which Sean has provided:


    You may pick & choose there! Best of luck with your in jury!

    What books are you all reading? What podcasts are you listening to? What is inspiring you to stay balanced, mindful, and present amidst the changing times? 

    Personally, I have been immersed in the work of Charles Eisenstein lately. His essay 'The Coronation' really blew me away as it calls us to mindfully consider some tough questions as we navigate where we go from here. He is a remarkable philosopher!

    Also, I listened to this short video by Ellen Emmet this morning (I shared elsewhere but will post it here as well). Her take on emotions is really beautiful and I appreciate the more 'feminine' approach to the necessity of venturing into the instinctual and emotional real of this flow.


    The Rain Technique seems appropriate here...

    R-Recognize what is Present, even our Feelings.

    A-Allowing Present moments to be as they are.

    I- Investigating what is Present, i.e. Investigating gently what you need to do for yourself to feel better.

    N-Nourishing yourself-what do you need to hear or do to make yourself feel better.
