Love is wonderful at any age. The excitement, the bliss, the romance. Yet, there’s also no question that as we age, love can get more complicated. As a dating coach, I often hear how my clients do not want to marry again. I know this may not sound romantic, but it’s a very practical side of relationships. I’m not against marriage by any stretch of the imagination. But I do recognize why older couples are choosing alternative living arrangements.

I am the developer of a community-based practice for wellness called Dancing Mindfulness. Mindfulness is the ancient practice of noticing without judgment, a practice that seems so simple, yet one that we often neglect in our fast-paced, modern lives.

Dancing Mindfulness uses the art form of dance as the primary medium of discovering mindful awareness.

The most wide spread human activity on this Planet is not what you think!…What human beings do most, everywhere, anytime, is stealing other human beings' vital energy.

Is Your Schedule Impacting Your Child’s Routine? Getting home at the same time from work never seems to work out. When you get home your exhausted and burnt out from your day. You didn’t even get to have a “break” on your way home from work because traffic was horrific or your concentration ability has been sucked out of you from your day. You come home and your husband has the kids on the couch watching a movie.
In an effort to help you understand the man side of this midlife dating experience, I’ve introduced you to The Princess, The 18 Year Old, The Scaredy Cat and The Wow-Me Woman: all FemiTypes* that send good men running. Today I’m going to talk about perhaps the most challenging of all FemiTypes: The Bitter Woman. She is a little scary, a lot angry, and all about being a victim. Not only does she scare and briefly traumatize the men she meets, but her bitterness probably seeps into all areas of her life.

Recently I've gotten a lot of questions on interviewing while I have been out and about. The people have spoken, and I have heard!
