Jean Shinoda Bolen Quote

I had the good fortune of attending her seminars in the 1990's, who soon became one of my role models - the living potential of what we can be and how we can live our life with purpose. Jean is a brilliant, heart-centered, passionate and a wisdom keeper. She is a True Leader and Empowered Woman. To know how to choose a path with heart is to learn how to follow intuitive feeling. Logic can tell you superficially where a path might lead to, but it cannot judge whether your heart will be in it.

State of the art resort settings, offer full service spas, pristine flower gardens and nature paths, gyms, and chic to elegant dining choices. Resort settings are the ideal place to hold an inspiring, engaging, educational and down right enjoyable women's retreat. And of course, if you are in the mood for luxury, upgraded rooms and suites! "Women Rising", Omni Bedford Springs Resort, Sept. 29-Oct. 1st.

Now this is progressive thinking!

Remember those days when you had summer break? This is the next best thing.

Alice Walker Quote

To All Women - Yes You Do! You are powerful beyond your knowing. You are a wonderful blend of love, understanding, intuition, courage and strength.

Deepen into the truth of who you are, in all your light and power, Sept 29th - Oct 1st. Learn, discover, grow. inspirationaljourneys/retreat/org The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.

Wellness retreats have "taken" across the country. We now know time away from your home/community in pursuit of well-being and good health are pivotal moments for gaining insight, reclaiming your health and creating life change. No retreat is complete without time in the spa. Check out Inspirational Journeys for more retreats, and to get the lowdown on creating health. Here is the spa area for the next rereat, Women Rising, at the Bedford Springs Omni Shorem.

A boy with autism broke down at an Orlando theme park. This employee saved the day

This is truly what it means to "Be present" to "Be there" with a person. So many of us don't realize the gift of presence. It is one of the greatest gifts to give another person. Learn how to be present with yourself and with another. Meditation has been the path I have taken to learn how to be present and just be. This employee was totally awesome! When Spider-Man was off-duty, a real-life superhero swung into action to comfort a boy with autism.

15 Ingredients in McDonald’s Fries Linked to Brain Damage, Autoimmune Disease, and Cancer

Take care of your body and brain by knowing what is in food and how food is cooked. Grant Imahara, host of the eye-opening show Mythbusters, was at it again. This time, he didn’t set out to get involved with crash test dummies or explosives. Instead, he recently focused on a specific food — which it can hardly be called — at McDonald’s: french fries.

'Pinwheel' star system is beautiful, dangerous and doomed

Ahh, a solar system shows her beauty. What a representation of Yin Yang! For the first time ever, astronomers have discovered a beautiful serpentine, pinwheel-like star system that is doomed to end in an explosion of gamma rays. It's 8,000 light-years from Earth in the Milky Way, but astronomers never expected to find a star system like this in our galaxy.

New Zealand asks travelers to help protect the environment

New Zealand, an awe inspiring country, and has a dear place in my heart. I traveled there with my dear friends Greg and Terry in 2011. We did a few treks, including the infamous Milford Sound (39 miles in 3 days, varying altitudes, a dozen waterfalls, etc.), and afterwards restored our energy at the Abel Tasiman National Park, below. A very precious place. Six years later, I returned with my son for a mother-son expedition and hiked the 19K trail through Vouldor - the land of volcanos as depicted in the Lord of the Rings. Amazing experiences "hoofing" through this beautiful country. Happy to hear it will continue to preserve the environment. Highly rec'd NZ as a destination for your travels. Travelers arriving in New Zealand are being asked to agree to the "Tiaki Promise," wherein they pledge to be good stewards of the environment during their trip.

This is the 'last generation' that can save nature, WWF says

Very scary and very sad, the vanishing of nature's species. Where will our world be without the beauty of nature and all living things? It is so vital to express our voice to save our planet and all who inhabit it. Stay aware, informed, and do your part to save animals and our environment. I encourage you to investigate which political candidates running for office support laws to save and protect our environment. Do your part and Vote in the midterms. We all matter. Pollution, climate change and other manmade factors have caused the decline of more than 4,000 species since 1970, the World Wildlife Fund says.
