Connect to be Fully Human and Turn Every Experience into Opportunity

If you’ve been following this year’s Newsletters you know the Rise Up! purpose, month to month, is to answer our lifetime’s most challenging question: “How do we survive and thrive, be reliable and compassionate human beings every day no matter the hour, the barrier to entry, the high hurdle or the bottom-of-the-pit we face? How do we find our True Self, deep, real and authentic and remain positive, courageous and even ambitious, ALIVE in possibility, no matter the experience?” Read More…

Be Grateful

Naming and celebrating ONE thing: sunset, sunrise, fresh water, two hawk brothers circling my house this very minute. OR, a “thanks” for something we take for granted: clean sheets, laughter, trees, late Fall persimmons; rain in the desert, fine wine; OR, ‘finally no desire to drink!’ Read More…

Move It

To be truly alive and on purpose, we catalyze, heal, ignite our minds, spirits, bodies and emotions into ONE healthy, steady flow. Organic and vital beings require ACTION: unique movement of our minds, bodies, spirits and emotions as one force of awareness. Read More…

Unpattern the Patterns

In 2014 at Rise Up! we discovered, re-invented, and committed ourselves to transformative LIFE PURPOSE. We ended the year needing assistance, reminders, and tools to successfully meet the challenge of transformation. Life Purpose is THEE job of our lifetime and deserves support to realize itself!

Life is a series of experiences that bring constant change. Change, even beneficial change we choose: a new career, a move, a new baby, a long planned trip, can fire up fear. Fear of the unknown, of loss of control, of feeling fear itself, can trap us. Trapped by fear we are unable to move forward or change what might be best for us. Fear can also scare us so we grasp towards a future that isn’t in our best interest.

Do not run from fear and do not grasp it! Either way FEAR controls you. Realize that fear, like Gain and Loss, Read More…

Become a Mindfulness Ninja

Over years of creating Ten Principles for Being Human: How to Turn Every Experience into Opportunity, I’ve asked myself if I could only choose one of The Ten to live by and teach which would it be? Which makes the greatest impact or is somehow the most valuable?

Befriend Gain and Loss

Claire, a beautiful, fiery red head, artistic in everything she does from her painting to her flamboyant costumes, doesn’t appear to be afraid of anything. “And I’m not,” she assures us in our Rise Up! session. “Or I wasn’t until I lost my husband. He was much older than I. Neither of us was foolish about that fact, but he was literally sun and moon of my life, my constant supporter, advisor and lover. He valued my Art and found me galleries and patrons. Everything he touched turned to gold, me included. I was seduced into warm suds of GAIN, success, and good-times-forever.
