Greetings Fellow Healers!

Happy 4th of July, Our Independence Day in the USA!   

I love the 4th of July.  Recalling our nation's history, honoring and celebrating the victory of our independence!   Grilling burgers, hotdogs, steak kabobs and corn on the cob on the grill!  Friends, Family, and Fireworks!  And, in my childhood, Parades!  I experience the 4th as a more relaxed, yet very meaningful holiday.  It always causes me to pause and be thankful for where I live as well as say a prayer for our ever evolving nation that strives to honor individuals' independence.  Thank God for our nation and Pray for our nation. 

Moonstone Center had the honor of Hosting and Celebrating Norton Series Author and Artist,  Dr. Terry Marks-Tarlow in Santa Monica on Saturday, June 23!  With over 100 attendees, we considered the event a great success and continue to delight in the many amazing people including psychotherapists, psychologists, artists, yoga teachers, and dancers who came to honor and celebrate Terry, her life and work as well as Moonstone Center's mission of wellness and professional development. The Event was held at 717 Broadway Street in Santa Monica, CA in the Yoga Studio located through Better Life Cuisine Cafe.  Some of her incredible art continues on display in Better Life Cuisine Cafe.  Please stop by, have a delicious raw/vegan meal, and experience, even purchase some of her delightful art!

Under SELF-CARE on the SideBar, check out the link to Wayne Dyer's  website.  I was driving my husband's car this weekend and accidently hit the CD player.  On came an old Wayne Dyer CD speaking of mindfulness and forgiveness.  He spoke of being mindful through moving meditations during yoga and swimming.  Of loving our "self" and surrounding ourselves with those who love our true "self." As I drove around running errands I allowed myself to listen, to be inspired.  Check out the link on the sidebar to Wayne Dyer's website where you can purchase books, read his inspirational writings and blog.  Maybe purchase an Audio Book and Feed your Soul as you drive... ;->
