Greetings ...

I look forward to sharing ideas, yoga flows, meditations, poetry, and general (sometimes off the wall) life commentary with you on this page. Welcome.
Bo Admiring Roses
The City of Contentment

You know when something that you already 'know' sinks in at a deeper level and you 'get it' from a core place within you? Well this is happening to me all around the words, "YOUR THOUGHTS ARE POWERFUL." I was listening to a beautiful guided meditation that ended with these words when this happened.

I think we can all relate to times when we have entered a room and though no one was speaking a total feeling of dread or unease comes over us; Or in another situation, unbridled joy for no seeming reason at all.

As beings of energy, every thought we think, every word we utter does not remain contained in some bubble. This energy is communicated to the world around us. I was pondering the meaning of all this as I walked Bailey Nanda, my golden retriever, along the beach the other morning.

Bailey Nanda 'sharing flowers' as he

And I asked myself, what am I sending out to the world… Daggers or flowers? It's sometimes easy if we are experiencing some unrest in our lives to allow it to overtake our thought patterns often in an endless downward spiral. BUT when we become aware of the repercussions, it does indeed get easier to question if that is the direction we want to go - not only out of personal reasons, but to be shall we call it, environmentally correct? Littering goes far beyond 'physical garbage.'

And so I find that I am now a much more dedicated steward of thought. If it doesn't serve me or the world at large, let it go. Find, rather, one of the myriad reasons I have to be grateful and share that. Years ago when I was living in Nashville, I ran a song writer's night at a local venue. An older gentleman named Joe, a regular participant, sat on stage one evening and played a song I will never forget. It was entitled, "The City of Contentment is in the State of Mind."

Profound, dear Joe. (Share Flowers. No daggers.)



I'd like to share a Morning Prayer that might resonate with you as well.
(Audio version found below. And "Sea of Tranquility" point is found in the center of the breastbone.)

Morning Prayer

Begin in Sea of Tranquility for several breaths repeating…

I am LOVE.
I radiate LOVE.

Now with hands gently resting on heart space:

I am eager and ready to accept all of the magic, miracles and blessings the Universe is offering me this moment and today... I open my arms and heart to receive.

Filled now and surrounded by warm, golden light, this healing energy flows out in concentric circles around me and into my unfolding destiny.

I share these blessings with all sentient beings... in joy and gratitude for another day to laugh and play and love and serve.

I am pure light, I am pure energy, I am pure love in motion as I joyfully serve on Mother Earth.

Dear Spirit, allow this blissful momentum to carry me in the river of your love, as I gratefully, lovingly, and joyfully flow and flourish in this service and soul expansion.

What if the stars
are nothing more
than the reflection of light
within our own hearts?
And as each heart opens
a new star emerges…
A constellation of pure love.
A galaxy of oneness.

MEDITATION - Private & Group Offerings

If you are privately interested in learning more about establishing a meditation practice, or your workplace would like to have access to a practice onsite, please contact me for more info.

Come into the silence of you and tap into a place of knowingness and peace.

I’ve come to meditation for the very first time in my 70’s.  With Maureen guiding us into deep relaxation,  it comes fairly easily,  with a wonderful feeling of peace and calm.  Very, very good for any of us with a hectic “normal” life,  reminding us of what is possible. - M.S.
Maureen’s relaxation techniques and her provision of a meaningful meditation Mantra makes for a deep and enjoyable meditation experience. I appreciate the chance to attend only to myself and to only recognize the external world – but then let it go. - L.S.
