Turning a Corner – New Ways for Me to Share with and Support You!

My mom always talked about “turning a corner,” meaning you can just be sauntering through life, as per the usual, and then POW! You turn a corner, and everything changes. I just turned one of those proverbial corners, leading to an unfolding and a synthesis, on the personal and professional levels – and, by extension, leading to some new and meaningful ways that I can share with you and support you, including offering a limited amount of free and sliding scale services for your personal and professional transformation.

People who need support the most are often the ones who can afford it the least – I know, because I was one of those people. And as part of turning this corner recently, I figured out a brand new business model, which enables me to offer up that support. Allow me to explain…The back story is long, so if you want to skip to the end and find out what I’m offering now, feel free […]

The Wellness Toolbox: Tool #1 – CUDDLES!

My life changed a couple decades ago, after I stopped running around trying to get an exact diagnosis for the debilitating chronic pain I was experiencing, and instead, started looking at how to amplify wellness in my life. Eventually, this approach became the cornerstone of the Dancing with Pain® method I developed, and additionally became the foundation of my approach to healing naturally from cancer.

In this model, chronic health issues fade away over time, as the byproduct of joy, love, celebration, and healthy lifestyle habits.  I ask what can I do, or how can I do it, instead of saying, “I can’t do it.” I think creatively and innovatively, always with a mind of curiosity and discovery, always evolving and shape-shifting over time.

A few weeks ago, I made a chart on a whiteboard, where I could see my wellness tools in one place, and check off each day which tools I had used. The chart was a way for me to remember the many tools always at my disposal, and to pat myself on the back for the ones I implemented each week. I […]

Turmeric Leek Therapy Soup

My cooking is like my music: There is always a story behind it. So as part of sharing the recipe for this soup, I’m going to share what led up to its creation.

I was very upset early this morning – to the point that I ended up convulsing in sobs, hunched over the kitchen island, following which my boyfriend woke up and came running to hold me. (He’s awesome.) As per the usual, I had fallen through the cracks of social services, left to my own devices to come up with a way to cover my astronomical out-of-pocket healthcare costs, never mind living expenses – in this case, following the Coronavirus pandemic cancellation of all the concerts I had lined up for my band.

Most notably, we lost an all-expenses-paid university gig, replete with a car service sent to pick us up at the airport and take us to our swanky lodgings at the Marriott. I had painstakingly lined up those gigs, along with media coverage locally, nationally and internationally, to help propel forward my band, Iraqis in Pajamas; and I was counting on the exposure to take us to the next […]
