A Clean Mind

Blogging about a less stressful way to live…

Chicken Tikka Masala

So I had lunch today at my old friend’s restaurant, Carmen’s Lunch Bar. It’s a lovely spot in lovely downtown Pensacola. I just had this really strong urge for the chicken tikka masala (which is amazing, by the way). It was just so interesting how random and strong this urge was. And clear, crystal clear – it just [more…]

My Forearm Locked Up During A Gig!?

That was really fun writing a blog post again, so let’s make it a twofer (not a typo, but real urban slang). That, of course, is a reference to the classic rock radio stations of my youth that had Two-For-Tuesday. Not one song by Huey Lewis & the News, but two in a row!! It was [more…]

Let’s Try This Again…

Hi folks, I’ve been on blog vacation! And it has felt right. I just crossed the four-year mark in private practice coaching/counseling, and things really picked up a couple of months ago. And when I’ve been off work I’ve just wanted to chill. It’s getting close to double the weekly sessions from before, so I’ve been seeing [more…]

What Just Happened??

Howdy folks! I think I’m just now emerging from the “WTF just happened??” phase after returning from a pilgrimage to Israel and France. It feels nice to be back. It felt natural to relax and let things sink in before jumping back in. I’ve had lots of counseling sessions and lots of new clients, though, and that’s been [more…]

The Dead Sea… Whoa

More greetings from Israel! How funny that I didn’t know if I’d be posting from my trip or not. While it’s an inner experience, the whole point is to bring that out into the world, in whatever that authentically means for you. For me, it’s clearly pretty loud. But isn’t it nice to be able [more…]

More Green Parrots at the River of Jordan!

Greetings again from Israel! My last post was about an amazing experience I had involving a green parrot and my dad (who crossed over in 2002) up at the chapel on the Mount of Beautitudes above the Sea of Galilee. A couple of days later, we headed south for the Dead Sea. They say this [more…]

Israel & the Green Parrots

Greetings from Israel! And no, Israel & the Green Parrots is not a band name. I’ll have to remember that one, though, for my next project. The trip has been awesome so far, and I’ve shared most of my pictures and experiences on the Facebook page for this blog. Some were a bit involved, though, [more…]

I’m Going On Pilgrimage!

Hello good folks, I’m writing to let you know that I’ll be taking a breather for a bit. In just a couple of days, I’ll be hopping on a plane and heading to… Israel and France! My normal trips are road trips to the North Carolina mountains, sometimes the Virginia mountains, or to New Orleans right down the road, [more…]

Ordinary Awakening

This is from the May newsletter of Breathe Yoga & Wellness in downtown Pensacola: Ordinary awakening… Ordinary awakening? Ordinary awakening?? How do those two words go together?! Let’s find out, because they totally do. And it’s short notice (I’m still working on my marketing skills), but I’ll be giving a talk by that name at Breathe Yoga & [more…]

The Huge Gloomy Weight… Exposed!

I have to tell you about the coolest story that illustrates how we create the feelings in our bodies out of thin air. I really love this one. So I’m doing webcam sessions with one of the graduates of Gulf Breeze Recovery, the drug and alcohol rehab facility where I work part time. She learned all [more…]

All anybody really wants is peace. The good news is that peace can be learned. I’m serious. This should be taught in middle school, but it’s not. So I’m teaching it now.
