Chocolate & Peanut Butter
Or, maybe fair trade, dark chocolate and organic almond butter. ;)
Anyway, you know how those two go together. The taste of the chocolate
and the consistency of the almond/peanut butter combine in a way that is
far more delicious than if you had a spoonful of peanut butter and then some
So, I was curious, where else do we find this phenomenon? Turns out, lots of
places! I can see it in my relationship with my partner. What we each could
create on our own in this lifetime would, I'm sure, be great. Together? We're
an adventure having, dream fulfilling, love duo!
I've also experienced it with group dynamics. I participate on a weekly
Mastermind Call with 3 others. The depth and quality of support the group
offers each individual on that call is far more impactful than a 1-on-1 call with
any of them would be individually. The individual call would be great, its just
that something ELSE is available with the larger group. There's something in
I can say from experience that the same principle applies with personal
progress. Having access to great information/research/awareness has been
critical. Having a coach, at times, to guide me in implementing and holding me
to account is where the rubber really started to hit the road. But the thing that
I can see has made the most difference is that I've had the tools to take all of
the information and all of the coaching and integrate that with my emotional
world and physical body. I use Somato Respiratory Integration to do this.
And it's time to start sharing that with others. For more details, I invite you to
my first ever tele-seminar! Details to follow in a separate email. I'm bursting

It's Root Veggie Time!
As the cool down begins, thoughts turn to heartier fare. Why not expand your root vegetable palate beyond potatoes and carrots?
3 Things To Consider:
- If you're gonna go for a root veggie bake, you might as well diversify the
color! Orange veggies (like carrots or sweet potatoes) indicate the presence
of beta-carotene and flavonoids, among others, which are great for eye
health and anti-inflammatory.
- Red veggies (like beets) contain lycopene and other nutrients which support
joint tissue and seek out free radicals!
- Some cultures in Africa and Oceania rely almost exclusively on root
vegetables to survive during tough climate periods.

questions, which at first seemed unrelated to my issues, helped us define how I can go about tackling any
problem in a way that makes it solvable. Because of my work with Matthew, I've paid off my credit card debt,
am cooking more than I'm eating out, and most amazingly, found the courage to allow love back into my life
