Greetings from the Hudson River in Saratoga County, New York! am honored and delighted you’re here.
This site began as a platform for sharing my writing and photography. However, I’ve experienced so much personal growth and expansion in recent years, and it’s time to rebrand and add some new services I’m passionate about. Even as that process is taking place, you can read my blog (“Journal”) with posts in a variety of categories (mostly related to spiritual growth, decluttering, death and bereavement, mindfulness, lovingkindness, gratitude, and nature). Also, I invite you to check out my photo galleries and online shop. You also can learn about my Portrait Photography and Interior Enlightenment services that include Clutter Coaching, Feng Shui, Reiki, and (coming soon!) Mindfulness Mentoring.
Everything I do – whether it’s nature photography, portrait photography, clutter coaching, space enhancement, Reiki, or art – is about working with energy and connecting with the radiance and spaciousness that is our true nature…and living in greater alignment with that. Mindfulness and lovingkindness are the threads that run through it all. I love to work with people and bring out the confidence, clarity, wisdom, and light that so often gets buried and forgotten below layers of personality, conditioning, and possessions. I invite you to explore my website to get a sense of the many ways in which I can help you 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.
FYI, my Journal burgeoned to more than 300 posts over the years, and I’m in the process of decluttering it to be more aligned with what this website has evolved into. All the old posts remain on my original Blogspot blog (http://riverblissed.blogspot.com/) that I maintained when I was still a classroom teacher. That blog focused more on river life (including the Hudson River PCB dredging project), wildlife and plants, early childhood education, local history, and favorite places.
"It wasn't easy, but it was amazing." This is what I overheard one of my fellow retreatants say to someone on the phone when we were about to depart at the end of a seven-day silent vipassana meditation retreat at Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA. She summed it...read more
I'll let you in on a little secret: I'm preparing to do something I've never done before and am feeling a little anxious about. Something that will take me completely out of my comfort zone. Soon, I will go on my first seven-day, silent vipassana meditation retreat....read more
