I’m a 70-year-old woman with 3 wonderful sons, and I live in my beautiful hometown of Washington, DC.

What’s mattered to me in my life, and what I know a great deal about: health and healing, nature (especially trees), meditation (I practice one of the most ancient forms of Buddhist meditation called “Vipassana,” which means to see things as they really are), green living (I’ve been carrying cloth shopping bags for 30 years), creativity (I run my own company, Integrative Health Design), and superb self-care, including fabulous techniques and resources I’ve collected over a lifetime.

My friends asked me to share. So here you go! What wisdom I have.

My blog is dedicated to my sons, Anh Nguyen, Sharon Bauer, my beloved Sangha, and to you.
