It isn’t very often that I endorse something, when I do it is because I have personal knowledge and direct experience of its value. I wanted to get this out a few days ago, but got sick instead. Now with a day left I am posting. To that end, I am writing this morning as fast as I can because I don’t want you to miss the opportunity to save $100 off Sounds True’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction online course.
“Mindfulness is a basic human quality, a way of learning to pay attention to whatever is happening in your life that allows you a greater sense of connection to your life inwardly and outwardly.”
The MBSR Online Course is the only complete online training in MBSR and follows the same, well-respected method taught at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
More than three decades of scientific research at medical centers all over the world suggests that training in mindfulness and MBSR can positively and often profoundly effect participants’ ability to reduce stress, pain, illness, and medical symptoms while also learning to live life more fully.
Since its inception, more than 24,000 people have completed the MBSR training program. They have been referred by more than 11,000 physicians, by hundreds of other health care professionals, and through self-referral. There are more than 750 MBSR programs around the world.
These participants have been strongly motivated to do something for themselves—
something no one else can do for them—by learning to draw upon their inner resources and natural capacity for greater health as well as balance, ease, and peace of mind.

I met Tami a few years later when I was a young poet looking for place to live in Boulder, where I was studying contemplative psychology and writing at Naropa. Even then as a young woman she impressed me, and maybe even unintentionally intimidated me with her determination and clear sense of mission and purpose.
Now with her dreams all grown up into a multimedia publishing company with more than 80 employees, a library of more than 1500 titles featuring some of the leading teachers and visionaries of our time, and an ever-expanding family of customers from across the world. In more than three decades of growth, change, and evolution, Sounds True has maintained its focus on its overriding purpose, as summed up in their Mission Statement.
Sounds True’s mission is to wake up the world. That is a mission we both share and

” By replacing the eyes iris with a blue, cloud-filled sky in False Mirror, Magritte challenges us to question what we see and what we think we know. Is the sky a reflection of what the eye is seeing? Is the eye in fact an opening into another reality? Are we looking at an inner vision, or something else entirely? One thing is certain: Magritte’s The False Mirror is an invitation to look at the world differently.”
I love my Aromaland oil warmer. It is made in the USA and only costs $9.99!
This is my new Moleskin journal cover….made with water-soluble crayons, gesso, washi tape, and ephemera. It looks even better in person because you can see all the “imperfections”.
On the Path
It looks like something out of Alice and wonderland
“To find your own way is to follow your bliss. This involves analysis, watching yourself and seeing where real deep bliss is — not the quick little excitement , but the real deep, life-filling bliss.” – Joseph Campbell
