I’m glad you’re here and invite you to explore the ways in which I weave photography and mindfulness into a variety of different offerings, including:
- Contemplative Photography and Writing
- Resource Your Life through the Magic of Mindfulness Online Course
- Mindfulness Meditation Instruction on Zoom (see my Calendar)
- Mindful Photography Walking Tours
- Portrait Photography (including Women of Light photo sessions)
- Inspirational Photography
- Mindful Decluttering & Clutter Clearing Photography
- Reiki sessions.
All my work is about connecting with the radiance and spaciousness that is our true nature…and bringing it into fuller consciousness. Through photography sessions and mindfulness meditation and conscious living mentoring, I create a safe space for you to liberate yourself from the limiting, old stories about yourself and the world.
Mindfulness and lovingkindness are the threads that run through everything I do. What matters most to me is guiding you to cultivate deeper compassion for yourself and others and to have a more empowered, curious, and intentional relationship with your mind so you can make wiser choices.
My Conscious Living (formerly Interior Enlightenment) services focus on bringing out the confidence, clarity, wisdom, and light that so often get buried and forgotten below layers of personality, conditioning, and possessions. I love to help clients release some of those layers so your true essence can shine through and guide you, and you can live with greater authenticity, spaciousness, and ease.
My online course, Resource Your Life with the Magic of Mindfulness, is open for enrollment! And I’m also teaching lots of classes on mindfulness and conscious living for libraries, delighting in Women of Light photography, and plugging away on my book, All Light Now: Losing My Parents and Recovering My Self. Doing what I can to follow the energy of yes and channel more light into the world!
FYI, my Journal burgeoned to more than 300 posts over the years, and I also decluttered it. All the old posts remain on my original River Bliss blog (http://riverblissed.blogspot.com/) that I maintained until the summer of 2015. That blog focused more on river life (including the Hudson River PCB dredging project), wildlife and plants, local history, favorite places, and early childhood education.
This poem and these images emerged from where my two great refuges, nature photography and mindfulness meditation, intersect. Beginner's Mind I do not know your name, Have not come face-to-face with you before Or perhaps have not seen you quite like...
It was just a regular paddle up the river to my usual turnaround spot and back. Occasionally, I'd pause to be still on the calm water and take in the symphony of the birds without the steady rhythm of paddling in the foreground. Before paddling back across the river...
