What Does a Successful Life

Mean To You?


We live in difficult times with no shortage of bad news and uninvited events. Yet even difficult times can’t take away our capacity to hope — to listen, learn, laugh, and be transformed. This kind of hope enables us to grow in exciting and unexpected ways.

Get inspired. Embrace your gifts. Celebrate large and small. Laugh out loud. Make friends with joy!

All the wealth, privilege, and therapy money can buy does not guarantee life’s smooth passages. Some of us navigate the bumps effortlessly without drama. Others cave in to despair. Most of us land somewhere between high anxiety and cautious optimism. Let’s build a path toward meaning and purpose.

Check out my newest Book!

It’s a family partnership… If I Could Mend Your Heart, Shorehouse Books.

The text comes straight from the heart. My niece, Hannah Farr’s charming illustrations say it all. And it’s all about life’s interruptions – the losses, the endings, the upheavals, and the capacity to trust the future. This little book also packs a big message about how we show up and support one another in our troubles. Readers find themselves on a small quiet walk filled with insight and light.

It’s a perfect gift when no words can completely express our care and concern. A gift for a friend or one to keep on your nightstand, If I Could Mend Your Heart promises that sunrise truly does follow midnight. Check it out on Amazon,


Heading for Chautauqua

It’s exciting! Chautauqua, my favorite annual event held in Chautauqua, NY is about to become even more exciting. I’ll be offering a four-day class July 15-18, 2019. And I’m pleased to announce that the subject will be Joy, specifically “Don’t Postpone Joy.” We will explore joy as more than a high point or single event. Instead, it embodies a range of experiences and passages that shape us through pleasure, achievements, doubt, and even loss. From setbacks to success, marriage to divorce, or illness to health, life encounters can shut us down or open us to a third act, a transforming experience of expansion and peace.

Participants will take a tour through ten guideposts that gently nudge them beyond resistance to a place of wholeness, reconciliation, and peace.
