There’s so much external noise, sometimes it’s hard to hear myself think. Lately, I’ve been trying to make some space.
Before I knew it, the weekend I’d been anticipating for so long had finally arrived. I was on a plane to Chicago for the 2014 Mindfulness Meditation Retreat, organized by Michele Gaspar, to see old friends and meet some new ones.
I thought of you today.
Whether you are still in veterinary college, out in private practice, working in academia or industry, I offer the following to you.
It finally happened.
I had dreamed but never thought I’d be able to teach yoga on VIN (Veterinary Information Network). I just finished presenting an on-line course to 80+ veterinarians (with more that will view the recording later). My motto is I’m just a small animal vet, living her yoga and still very much a work in progress. I wanted to show others how they could do it too.

I’m a dharma junkie.
Dharma is considered to be the “something special within you” that you offer up to the world. Your calling in life. The reason why you were put on this Earth.
I’d forgotten my iPhone in the front seat of the truck, which meant my husband had to turn around and drop it off to me at the train station. As he passed me the phone, he said “You’re going to work on your mindfulness this weekend, right?”. Yeah.
Just turned 100…my 100th blog post, that is! Can’t believe that I’ve been able to keep at this blogging thing for more than two years now.
