For women —

There are those moments — sometimes in the dark where no one can see, sometimes a glimmer coming through the trees like a ray of sunlight — when you can feel the spark of possibility that lives inside of you.  It exists, like swans in the moonlight, whether or not anyone sees. “Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you were meant to stand out?” — Ian Wallace There are those moments — sometimes in the dark where no one can see, sometimes a glimmer coming through the trees like a ray of sunlight —...

For moms raising girls

In an age fraught with negative influences like cyberbullying, depression, eating disorders, substance abuse and alienation, wouldn’t it be great to be able to help your daughter be strong and resilient enough not to be so affected by all of that?  What are the ingredients for raising girls who grow up with a joyful sense of passion and purpose? It is my mission to help you raise girls who experience excitement and direction in their lives — and that begins with you having the support and the guts to be yourself.  It’s about...

For girls

Happiness comes from embracing your uniqueness, not from fitting into someone else’s idea of who you should be. Our work is about helping you be outspoken about who you are and what you want out of life so you can find your path to a life of passion and purpose. “If the path before you is clear,” said Joseph Campbell, “you’re probably on someone else’s.” Whether the next steps you’re struggling with have to do with your classes, your major, your parents or a significant relationship, you may not be able to see beyond the very next brick in...

Three Minutes at a Steinway

Three Minutes at a Steinway

Last New Year’s Eve, I found myself at the piano after a 20-year absence. As a direct result, I am now faced with the largely self-inflicted terror of playing a Bach prelude at a recital. The recital takes place in the beautiful chapel of a stately old mansion, one of the “seven castles” of Clifton — now a nursing home. Fortunately this means that much of the audience cannot hear. However, I cannot help but recall the debut of my younger daughter Marla’s choir at an Alzheimer’s unit when one of the...

Attracting Sea Change

Posted by on Jul 31, 2007 in Sea Change Blog | 0 comments

The message of Sea Change is simple – as important truths tend to be. Each day, we’re pulled in a hundred different directions. The din of the demands coming from the outside makes it hard to hear the guide on the inside. Call it energy, call it intuition – when that spark of knowing surfaces and you have the courage to act on it, sea change occurs. How do you know when to pay attention? Sometimes you just know – if you allow for it. When a thought or idea or feeling bubbles up out of nowhere and makes you draw a breath, stop and take...

The Missing Piece

Posted by on Oct 20, 2006 in a space that's you, Sea Change Blog | 0 comments

It started when my friend Cathy handed me a sack of paperback books-on-loan. Swapping books is a practice we’d established over time. Some were meant to be returned, others were to be passed along to another; a sort of pay-it-forward. This was an unusually big stack, and the bag sat on the dining table in the morning room for a couple of weeks. Finally, anxious to clear off the table, I emptied the bag and tossed the books on the end table by the sofa. Comprised of a sofa and two chairs, this space had felt somehow unfinished, lacking...

Seeking Your Passion?

Posted by on Oct 19, 2006 in Sea Change Blog | 0 comments

Seeking Your Passion? Inquire Within… We hear a lot these days about “passion.” Everywhere we look, it seems like someone is telling us to “find our passion,” to “follow our passion,” to “live passionately.” In the abstract, it sounds like wonderful advice, but certainly there are not few among us who are thinking, “Where am I even supposed to look?” or even: “I don’t think I have a great passion!” But what if it isn’t so hard! What if deep down we already know where to find it – because it’s a part of us? What if there is a way to go...

Seeking to Nurture Others?

Posted by on Jul 7, 2005 in Sea Change Blog | 0 comments

Seeking to Nurture Others? First Value Your Self “I’m not worried about what I want; I just want to make sure that everyone else has what they want.” It’s an unspoken chorus of women who have been raised to believe that being “selfless” is their greatest gift to the world. Underneath it lurks a great fear. “If I told people how I really feel or insisted on what I want, they might not like me!” As women, many of us were taught that being valued by others means leaving ourselves behind. We quickly...
