{Birth Video Share} Cox Family Birth

Wow! I might be in love with this family. I think my soul sighed, twice, in less than two minutes of watching this family birth film.

Seriously!

That was all it took to see that the whole family took part in laboring process and in supporting this beautiful mother. But everything beyond the first two minutes still captivated every cell in my body.

Tune Into Wellness Group 650

Community & Communication {My T.V. Interview}

Tune Into Wellness Group 650

Recently I was invited by LisaMarie Tersigni, host of Tune Into Wellness and founder of Inspiring Wellness Solutions, to join her for an interview. She even offered me the chance to create a theme for the segment and I honored to choose. I decided on Community & Communication.

Now I have to admit that I was horrified, super excited, and deeply moved to have such an opportunity. Television, or any camera for that matter, does not fall within my comfort zone….or any zone near it.

Fall Flavors: Stuffed Bell Peppers

Baked-and-Stuffed-Bell-Peppers

As fall settles, those hardy meals from my youth start to beckon my taste buds. I grew up eating stuffed bell peppers that were mostly with ground beef. But these days I prefer the feel and flavors of a vegetarian variation. This is an excellent dish to double up and free to that you can have a bit of summer flavor in the middle of winter or enjoy an evening with you kids with little cooking prep.

To freeze stuffed peppers: prepare them according to instructions up to the cooking step. Basically, you just want to assemble them so that they are ready to thaw, bake and serve later on. Start by placing them on a parchment paper or waxed paper lined baking sheet and freeze them until solid. Once the peppers are completely frozen, place them in gallon sized resealable plastic bags. Make sure to label the bag and include what it is, any remaining steps, and the date you froze it.

The Feldenkrais Method & Dance

The Feldenkrais Method and Dance

When I was considering applying to a Feldenkrais Professional Training Program® — most of my experience and exposure to the work was via Moshe Feldenkrais books, a bit of Awareness Through Movement, and the many testimonials of my friends who were studying dance & theater. For me it was a sigh of relief that I could pursue a study that allowed me to dwell in my obsessions with neuroscience, kinesiology, and psychology all while surrounding myself with creative souls.

Above you have an opportunity to view an elegant and beautiful video on how Feldenkrais Practitioner,  Amy Shulman, integrates the teachings of The Feldenkrais Method and Dance.

“I really believe that in teaching, it is important to empower the student to be able to use more of themselves. I see the dancers really moving…. a sense that they are really dancing the movement and not executing a form.” -Ami Shulman
