I am most proud of motherhood, which gave my life a singular purpose. I still celebrate the opportunity to see the world through the window of a child, which reminds me everyday to practice mindfulness sooner and not sweat the small stuff." FunZen heart♡note
struggle until my daughter, Grace was born. The inner conflict became apparent when I heard from my great grandfather's secretary, Mary Farkas, how much I resembled Sokei-an Sasaki Roshi. At the time, in the early eighties I didn't know
was the suffering I experienced when I felt any envy
For the sake of brevity, coming full circle has been about deepening my root of self acceptance, which from a zen perspective is self love. By discovering how to treasure myself on this enlightened journey of lifelong learning all of us are on, I am grateful to share my most important b-lesson. WISDOM is wanting and using what we already have. Early on, before Grace was born I was mostly teaching celebrities and executives to relax and get centered with an infusion of spiritual martial arts, dance and yoga. Truth be told, everyone has star magic, a spark of divinity, but don't believe it until they dig in, and do the work to find it for themselves. Working with clients like Jim Carrey, Pamela Anderson, and Tyra Banks, T-Zone Camp (girl empowerment, self esteem building) was rewarding and fed my spirit. The environment I walked into was driven with a desire to learn and evolve which was both challenging and fun. My humble appreciation goes to Legendary Basketball Coach, Phil Jackson, for sharing my approach, and book “Mental Fitness” with his players. I didn't see how valuable it was to be in that position of sharing what I love, until I started teaching less and counting my blessings.

Making Zen Fun Centering Charm:
Back to the point, visualize pressing your zen button,
light energy and center of gravity, responsible for balance from top to toe...Now, when you place your attention on this still point you can mentally start over, (skip the guilt, shame or blame) whoosh!
Now, refocus and refresh so you can be present, doing ONE thing at a time. Grace says that using this cool tool helps her effortlessly relax into the present moment, shake off tension, and clear any emotional negativity so she can face the music, re-focus, and stay on point. Remember this:
Calm = Strong, Scattered (anxious) = Weak.
Remember, a drop of knowledge and application of wisdom is better than a sea of force. (too much effort)
Empty your Cup, Taking One Mindful Sip at a Time:
Mindful Sip Tip: Press zen button, whoosh, (pixie pause) now, catch your gratitude breath wave to relax, refocus and refresh in the present moment.
The Miracle Diamond Posture check (see pic below): sit or stand tall inside, take root, press down sit bones, or feet and press up through your heavenly crown or head top.
One ocean breath cycle, exhale stale air, whooosh, inhale deeply (direct air to core) fill up tummy rises, pixie pause, exhale slowly tummy falls, ahhhh sweet spot, reaching stillness to brighten your inner light.
My coaching makes a positive difference by nurturing your creativity and clarifying the application of “The Master Skill” accessing the zen eye of the storm. By following your heart's compass you activate the miracle diamond of mindfulness, which helps you Keep calm and Sparkle on with the dancer's secret posture habit. Choosing to be upright vs. uptight in everyday real life situations helps you monitor success stress. Life can be a roller coaster with unexpected good, bad, ugly and beautiful experiences. Losing your balance is key in helping you find your balance with your zen centering tools, mentioned in this blog.

and the spirit soars."
