May 2017

In this beautiful green month of freshness, my thoughts turn to the meaning of purity. Looking up the meaning of the word purity, this is what I find: “Freedom from anything that debases, contaminates, pollutes, etc. Freedom from guilt or evil; innocence. Clearness, clarity, freshness, goodness, saintliness, honesty, integrity.” Purity is associated with understanding, patience, and kindness.
Let this month bring you also to a reflection on purity. How pure can your diet be? How pure canĀ  your thoughts become as you direct them in meditation? How clear and pure can your communication be? See what happens!

Just a reminder that the website to check for class schedules, etc., is now

You can also find out about my FengShui/sacred space consultations at

I will continue to include information about special events related to my counseling practice in this newsletter, and will be the website focused on the psychotherapy services that I offer. Group classes for The Highly Sensitive Person will be held on May 10, May 24, and June 7.
