Flower Essences – Bringing back our connection to Nature

November 7th, 2014

Herbs, flowers and trees have all been used for healing for thousands of years. It was an English physician, Dr. Edward Bach, who developed a range of remedies made with the healing energies of flowering plants and trees in the 1930’s. His collection of 38 remedies have been used widely since then, and his technique for preparing them has been used by others to create essences from many other flowers. Bach was committed to creating a simple system of healing that anyone could learn to incorporate into their lives for everyday healing. They do not treat physical illness directly, but by restoring... Read More

Embrace your Inner Witch – I dare you!

October 31st, 2014

  It’s Halloween, and there are witches everywhere. Hundreds of women around town in their pointy hats and striped socks. That’s a lot of witchiness. What does it all mean? What does the word witch mean to us? Does the idea of witch send an inexplicable chill down your spine? Is she scary? Does she mean harm? Will she hurt us? Is she ugly? Should we kill her? Today, I’m suggesting making friends with the witch in you.  That’s right, we all know her. If we take away the fear for a moment, we can take a look at the true nature of the witch, who is in fact, a lover not... Read More

Joyful Journaling – Create your own story

October 24th, 2014

Yesterday the partial solar eclipse brought together hundreds of Boulder folk as they gathered to observe the event.  Looking at the images and stories of happy observeres soaking up the late fall sunshine, it’s clear to see what a fascination we have with the skies.  And it’s no accident – us  humans have been observing the skies for a very, very long time, it’s in our nature. Did you know though, that eclipses have long been understood to be a time of deeper connection to our spiritual nature?  The days around solar eclipses and new moons are a perfect time to work... Read More

Healing, Science and Consciousness – interview with Caritas Center founder Gloria Coelho

October 17th, 2014

This week I wanted to shine a light on a wonderful resource here in Boulder, the Caritas Center. The center has been serving the local community for 11 years, and I am grateful to have been volunteering in the healing room for a couple of years now. It feels so good to offer healing work to anyone who needs it, regardless of their capacity to pay. I spoke with Gloria Coelho, the founder and director of the center about its work and mission. Katie: How did it come to be that you set up a Brazilian Spiritist center in Boulder? Gloria: I became interested in the Spiritist centers in Brazil when... Read More

Fresh air on the inside – Clearing Clutter

October 10th, 2014

Autumn is not only a great time for cleanses and fasts, but for clearing our external spaces too. It’s time to focus on getting things ready for the winter months, when we spend much more time indoors.  Giving a little clearing to our living space frees up our vitality and energy to focus, and allows us to relax and be creative in our home. You know, that basement room could be a really cool extra family space if only all the boxes of old stuff and random collections were gone, if only it could be cleaned out, perhaps enjoy a new piece of furniture or art work…  That office space... Read More

Thinking it Real – how to use positive thought to create a life you love

October 3rd, 2014

I’m passionate about sharing simple and powerful tools that make a positive difference in my life.  As I get ready to begin a more consistent daily affirmation practice, I have been thinking about the power of positive and intentional thought and how it is changing my whole outlook on life. Perhaps you’ll understand what I mean when I say that I used to think affirmations were a bit chintzy, a bit ‘Hallmark’?  The thought of repeating snappy little phrases to myself seemed superficial, and I felt pretty unconvinced that this would work for me. Living in Boulder,... Read More

A Broader Perspective – an Interview with Astrologer Sophie Rose

September 26th, 2014

I am excited to begin this series of interviews with some of the wonderful spiritual teachers, healers and therapists we are blessed to have access to here in Boulder. Sophie and I have worked together over the past several years, and I have always appreciated her ability to empower others (myself included!) in their lives and on their spiritual path with clarity and kindness. So, we met for tea and a chat! Originally from France, Sophie has been in Boulder for 13 years offering astrology readings and classes, and in recent years has also been guiding clients in past life regression work. She has... Read More

The changing of the season – exploring the equinox

September 19th, 2014

Yesterday I spent my morning amongst the flora and fauna of mountain land, tending a beautiful garden of wildflowers and native plants, herbs and roses.  As I spend more time working with the earth and the plants, I begin to feel the cycle of the seasons come alive in me. If you know me, you know I can’t resist a good metaphor, and a change of season is ripe with meaning for our own journey.  So, inspired by the nature of the season, I have been pondering a few questions. We are approaching the autumnal equinox, one of only two times in the year when day and night are of equal length.... Read More

Walk your way to joy! Finding peace, one step at a time.

September 11th, 2014

One of the greatest challenges we find along our life journey or spiritual path is to feel love and compassion for ourselves. It requires that we treat ourselves well, and give ourselves time and space to be still, to re-fuel, to rest and to gather our resources.’Self-care’ is a term we hear a lot now, and it means just this – finding ways, no matter how small and seemingly unimpressive, to find some peace for a moment. In this busy and pressured lifestyle we often have, we need this time to rest and to remember who we are and how we operate without the busy-ness. When we choose to... Read More
