Every Moment Is Perfectly Imperfect

November 27, 2011

By Larry Gifford It is easy to get lost in a cyclone of thoughts wondering how and why we do what we do and grading each action as spiritual, holy, sincere, authentic, or enlightened enough. My higher self reminded me today to stop the on-going evaluation in my mind and live each moment of my life […]

Life is a Fire Dance

February 15, 2011

By Larry Gifford In my meditation this morning I was guided through a lush forest, up a rocky staircase to a small cave. Inside the cave was a wise, older woman sitting by a fire. I sat next to her and together we held the space. We watched the flames and listened to nothing and […]

The Dance Inside My Head

February 4, 2011

by Rebecca Gifford My parents gave us a Dancing Water Bowl for Christmas this year.

Meaning and celebration of the passage of fall to […]

When are you?

December 15, 2010

“Where are we? You mean, when are we?” – The Ghost of Christmas Past, Scrooged For us, this holiday season means a trip to our childhood home and the first time most of our family meets our son Henry. The potential for stress, jetlag, family drama and the concentrated nature of the visit to take us […]

The Power of Doing Nothing

December 12, 2010

by Larry Gifford What would happen if you stopped? Just stopped. Your green light of life turns red. It could be for a moment, a minute, an hour, a day or a week. What if you gave yourself permission to stop worrying, stop replying to email and answering your phone, stop doing, stop trying to […]
