"Being in our 50's, 60's, and 70's is a unique time of passage in which we are neither 'young' nor elder.  It is a time "between" in which we hone ourselves into a finer work of art, using the colors of our previous experiences and the inspiration of our growing awareness of the inter- and intra-connectedness of all life."

"My intention is to help you be as healthy in body and mind as you can be within the ecosystem of your life --whether you are in peak health, injured, or have a chronic or acute disease.​"
