Offer kindness

“Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.” ~ Swami Sivananda

I was recently reading about Mother Teresa and came across this interesting story:

In 1979, Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and she requested that the entire $192,000 endowment (about $700,000 in today’s money) be distributed to the poor.

When asked if we should all be doing more she responded:

It is not how much we do,
but how much love we put in the doing.

It is not how much we give,
but how much love we put in the giving.


Changing subjects ~ When it comes to our health and mind/body balance, I believe we have more choices than we might expect.

Over the years I’ve come to realize that it’s our small daily CHOICES that determine the quality of our lives, and the life we are living today reflects the decisions we made years ago.

If you’re ready to try something different next month, I have 2 Qigong options for you:

T’ai Chi Chih, moving meditation: launches Tuesday September 7th at 12:30PM via Zoom. This 4 week Series is designed for beginners who want to strengthen their immune system, relieve pain and stress, and improve mind/body balance. T’ai Chi Chih’s gentle movements release stress by relaxing and rejuvenating the body while refreshing the mind. We’ll meet Tuesday September 7-28 from 12:30-1:30PM. Series fee $75

Students share: “What I like the most is you can do as much or as little as you are physically or mentally able to without judgment. And it works! My balance is so much better…you smile a great deal and gain knowledge and wisdom at the same time…Joan gives good Zen!”

“If it’s going to be, it’s up to me.” ~ Robert Schuller

Jump Start in 15, quiet the mind & strengthen the body: launches Wednesday September 8th at 9AM via Zoom. This 15 minute 4 week energy healing Qigong Series helps you relax and reduce mind/body stress. Can you imagine feeling both relaxed and energized? It’s easier than you might think:) We’ll meet Wednesday September 8-29 from 9:00-9:15AM. Series fee $40

Students share: “I love those simple yet powerful moves you taught us…I am so grateful for that moment of calm and focus…that was a great way to start the morning.”

All righty that’s it for now, take good care & happy full moon blessings this Sunday.
