What if?

  I am really connected to the mix of cultures inside myself.  I love the video above, because it takes what we know of American culture, and puts it in a completely different setting. Throughout history, what if the French won instead of English? What if all of the empires, Byzantine, Roman, Persian, Ottoman, won out, what music and characters …

Headlines, Officers, Social Media Hate

Sometimes all the things we see in the news and online is too much.  Headlines can be so misleading, not giving the full story, they want sensationalism in order to get more views.           Recently the movie Ghostbusters came out, and one of the stars got so much hate on Twitter, she cancelled her account. http://deadline.com/2016/07/leslie-jones-twitter-ghostbusters-online-bullying-social-media-1201788709/ …

Talent and Skill

  I am fascinated by people that have both, talent and skill.  From doctors and lawyers, to artists and teachers.  Some people have such a passion for what they do, it comes from within, and their skills just solidify their expertise, but it is much, much more.  Others are quite skilled, but there is no inner connection, and that is …

What Are You?

  I am Jewish. I am a woman. I am American. I am born in Moscow, Russia when it was the Soviet Union. My father was born in Chechnya, Grozny under Soviet rule, there were a handful of Jews that lived there going back to the Persian empire, not any more.  I look like him. It always bothered me that …

Women’s Health

The body of a woman and how it works is really magical.  From the physical beauty, to the inner workings of pregnancy, labor, and birth.  The body overall is a machine in men and women, and when we live a healthy active lifestyle, consciously feed and hydrate ourselves, with a low stress and fulfilling life, everything most of the time …

The concept of Shabbat

Shabbat is so special, I am so grateful my kids know the concept of turning off the world.  No electronics, phones, TV, computer, and not even our car to go somewhere.  In the morning before my husband took them to synagogue, they built a fort with their blankets.  I love watching their minds create, and how wonderfully they play with …

It will keep happening all over the world

Mia Adler Ozair feeling heartbroken. NICE is heartbreaking. What the world needs to realize is that there are no longer rules… Stop being surprised and mortified because we’ve seen nothing yet. Evil knows no bounds. But Light has no limits. Reveal all of your Light as often and with as much power as possible to diminish dark influence. It’s up to …

I’m allergic to chicken, but not beef

I love customization, we all have different needs, experiences, and stages in life.  Of course the basics of nutrition and exercise are the key to many imbalances, but sometimes you have to go deeper.  In my Yoga/Pilates classes and in my Doula and Prenatal services, I go in empty, yes I have skills and tools, but ultimately I open myself …

The Roots Are The Same

I find this so beautiful, that deep down every belief system is about relationships, and most importantly consciously making an effort to treat others the way we would like to be treated.  My knowledge is in Judaism, and one of the greatest examples is The Rebbe, who encouraged an inclusive, warm community, and lighting up everywhere we go in the world. …
