Changing Your Frequency

I have been fascinated by the concept of changing my vibration and raising my frequency. Last May, after throwing my most successful sold out event, I felt empty and had to retreat from my work of connecting others and discover what I required to continue. What fun to share the results of hours and hours of meditation, visualizations and raising my frequency as the magic … Continue reading Changing Your Frequency

Encountering Wildlife, and Pain

Encountering Wildlife, and Pain

Encountering Wildlife, and Pain When I read the text, “Let’s go for a walk today???” I had to pull the phone closer to my face to confirm that the message came from Pam, my long-legged, golden-hair She-Ra of a friend (think Amazon Goddess meets Tarzan, Scrat and Sacagawea). With all of those traits packed into one, Pam is not the type to take walks, preferring to push her physical … Continue reading Encountering Wildlife, and Pain

Delving Deep into Meditation with Thomas Droge

Delving Deeper into Meditation with Thomas Droge

[su_heading]Delving Deeper into Meditation with Thomas Droge[/su_heading] Taking Taoist Insight and Five Element meditation classes with Thomas Droge and interviewing him live on our Facebook feed afterwards helped me to delve deeper into the intellectualization of meditation during Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass 2016. As our conversation unfolded it was apparent that Thomas Droge has a very intellectual mind that breaks down meditation both scientifically and physically. A practitioner of Qi Gong, Tai Ji … Continue reading Delving Deeper into Meditation with Thomas Droge

An Interview with MC YOGI

His voice was soft and soothing and his music made you feel light-hearted and happy, so it really was a pleasure to practice yoga in the first row of his yoga class with Amanda Giacomini and DJ Drez in “The Nest by Yoganonymous” and hear him sing during Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass … Continue reading An Interview with MC YOGI

An Interview with Eoin Finn at Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass I’d like to thank Eoin Finn for helping to dissolve my shyness and willingness to stay insular while in yoga practice, and insight me to throw all inhibitions to the wind in his blacklight “Yogi Rockstar Classic Rock Vinyasa Flow” class during Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass 2016. In 1999 Eoin founded Blissology, a yoga system that mines for the source of love inside of all … Continue reading An Interview with Eoin Finn at Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass

A Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass 2016 Recap

A Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass 2016 Recap Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass always looked intriguing to me but as someone who is more partial to practicing yoga and meditation in my own space – without having to get touchy feely with strangers (sorry, it’s my East Coast/British genetic structure), I have always been a bit reluctant to purchase that ticket. This year though, master teacher, Rod Stryker, was going to be there. This … Continue reading A Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass 2016 Recap

An Interview with Rod Stryker

An Interview with Rod Stryker If you have been reading AspenRealLife you will know that I left my blog after nine years to work for a digital marketing firm, at a time when my analytics were strong with over 14K unique visits a month. Having never marketed the site before, as passionate as I was about writing inspirational stories I had absolutely no desire to become an advertiser, I was all about … Continue reading An Interview with Rod Stryker

Anatomy of a Mommy Blogger

In all of this self-analysis I have deduced that my writing has become a reflection of my spiritual journey as a wife and a mother. It has helped me to live in the present more completely and spiritually then ever before. Every nuance, every impressionable expression, every tribute to life, resonates in my being and writing it all down helps me to grow. Continue reading Anatomy of a Mommy Blogger

Loving My Forties

A half hour later I walked out of his office stunned. In my forties, I have found an inner peace and an entirely new view on life and love. My senses are deepened and my openness to the world much greater. I am learning Spanish, writing, reading novels, juggling three boys, relishing in the affections of my husband and deepening my bonds with my girlfriends. Who was this man who could not appreciate the beauty of women in their forties? Continue reading Loving My Forties
