Quick Tip:
Mindful Driving

Regardless of how or if one celebrates December holidays, this is a busy time for most people.  In some areas, unpredictable weather can make driving dangerous.  Here in Arizona, increased tourism increases our traffic significantly.  

Here's a Quick Tip to help you to be a safer, more mindful driver.  When you get into your vehicle to drive, pause to feel that you are sitting with your weight evenly distributed in your seat.  Take a purposeful breath and
commit to driving with minimal distraction.  

Avoid the temptation to use your cell, text or email
while your car is running.  

Choose music that will help you feel calm and centered.  

And remember that the person who cuts you off or does something silly just isn't being mindful.

Wishing you a season of abundance, gentleness
(with yourself and others), gratefulness and generosity.

Experience the Slowing and Stillness
that comes with being
Grounded, Present, Centered and Calm
Until Next Year!
SariDr. John U
A Tribute to Dr. John

I met Dr. Upledger at a Craniosacral Therapy conference in San Diego in 1999.  I'll never forget watching him playing improvisational piano with those enormous, gentle, intuitive hands while holding several intelligent conversations.  He explained that he paid his way through medical school by playing piano and studying simultaneously!  

Dr. John Upledger passed away at the age of 80 October 26, 2012.  Services will be held December 15, 2012 in Florida, but those around the world will stop for a moment of silence at 5:30  pm EST on December 15th.  To read more about Dr. Upledger's work click here.

You can enjoy hearing the soothing Harp Foundation CDs during your
Craniosacral Therapy sessions.

The Mission of The Harp Foundation is
'To provide therapeutic harp music for the essential healing, comfort and well-being of individuals in crisis or with special needs.'
