12928952_sSummer Days are here, with a lot of performing and teaching projects ahead…all of which I am excited about.

At the same time, I have been feeling oddly resistant to my own schedule, which admittedly has been kinda over the top lately.

Do you ever feel like you just want to stop, take stock and come back to your heart?  Move from the busy-ness of business to the passion that drove you in the first place? That’s where I am this weekend, so I thought I’d revisit my favorite summer form, The Lotus

Summer Retreat: Living the Lotus: From Muck to Mastery. Thursday June 17 – Sunday June 20. Celebrate summer while you optimize your energy in Sonoma.
