For those of you who don’t know me, I do woo. I love all things mystical and spiritual and do my best to follow my inner guidance. 

Sometimes I find I need a bit of guidance from other sources.

Like Prema Gurreri, this week’s guest.

I discovered Vedic astrology about ten years ago. I’d been having my chart read Western astrology style, for years. Good stuff and eerily accurate. Vedic is different. It’s more about now, a...

In the olden days people dropped acid, took shrooms, and tripped the light fantastic. In other words, they got high. Sometimes it went well and sometimes, well, let’s just say some people were never the same.

And there are plenty of people who still just want to get high for the sake of the buzz. A whole new generation of drug users is getting high with plants to expand their consciousness, to heal from depression, or to find a way ...

Early in the conversation he said he got lucky that he f...

My guest, Dr. Selma Rashid, speaks frankly about what life without hormone restoration is like and why she’s passionate about educating women about BHRT.

“And that's what most women want. They're not looking for, you know, physical beauty. They're looking for dignity. They don't want to be in a nursing home calling the bell for somebody to take them to the bathroom.”

I’m totally in agreement with her, you?


My guest, Dr. William Levine, DDS is also a board-certified Periodontist specializing in oral diseases and implantology and has over 35 years of experience in the dental field. That may sound like the lead into a boring conversation but my time with Dr. Levine was anything but. 

He makes the science of teeth and gums simple and interesting.

I had to ask about flossing—yes it is as important as why our dentists harp on doing it.&...

What’s missing in your life? 

Deep level stuff like love, connection, self-worth?

Tracy McCubbin believes that we over shop, over save, and over anti-age ourselves because something is missing and we try to fill it.

For the sandwich generation—that’s us right—we have places galore to find clutter. The obvious, our parents homes as they downsize or even pass away.

Not so obvious is empty nest syndrome where a woman who identified f...
