Acupuncture: In 2019 a covered benefit for some IBX plans

Hopeful for possibilities I’m always the dreamer and hopeful for possibilities. So often we don’t think things will change, yet we know the only assurance is that things will. The media would like us to believe that things are only getting worse. This week I have a different story to...

What is a wholebeing practice?

What is a wholebeing practice?

Wholebeing practices are habits of awareness where we train, create, heal and grow within each of three worlds—the mind, the body and nature. It was an unexpected place that prompted the question. I had committed to a year-long nutrition program in the fall and in that day's lesson was a link to...

The goal or the path

The goal or the path

In the last few months, I have become a brand new beginner in two different things. Both are things I have wanted to do and yet been afraid to do for a variety of reasons. The story went like this, “Alice, you are now a responsible adult and if you haven’t done these things by now….” My...

The Magic of Beginnings

The Magic of Beginnings

And suddenly you know. It is time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings. ~Meister Eckhart If I had a dollar for every person that says to me, “I can’t do yoga, I’m just not flexible enough,” I’d be able to retire next year. It’s the barrage of photographs of...

Sleep as a practice

So this is part two in my exploration of sleep. Last week I invited you to join me as a sleep detective to log and notice your sleep. I have been logging my sleep in a couple of different ways including filling in the sleep log that I included in last week’s post and also with my new device,...

Being a Sleep Detective

These next two weeks we're going to go with the energy of the fall season and focus on that desire to become a cat and curl up and sleep. Sleep is a sensitive subject and varies person to person. The general recommendation is 7 hours of sleep. While it seems easy to say get more sleep, there may...

The school board, a scissors drawing and the Dowager

“Wow…Would you be interested in being on the School Board?" Not a typical question for an art teacher to ask a parent at a High School Open House night. I have no interest in being on the Lower Merion School Board. It’s hard work to make everyone happy, and I’m not sure how much support I...

Sleep and your brain

Sleep and your brain

I am not a neurologist nor am I a sleep specialist. I, probably like you, have had my share of irregular sleep patterns and periods at different times in my life. I have believed that I am one of the very small percentage of people who can get by with less than 7 hours of sleep. It took many years...
