Welcome to my blog!

I'm an acupuncturist, teacher, fertility specialist, patient centered advocate, mom, activist and more! This blog is a place for me to write down the things on my mind, the things I discuss over and over, and the things I find helpful, interesting, and inspiring all in the hope that someone else out there, maybe YOU, will find some of these things to be helpful, interesting and inspiring too. I love learning, I love sharing, and I am passionate about helping others lead more balanced, fertile, and healthy lives - while trying to do the same myself. So here goes... The Blogging Life...


Fertility Retreat - Rage Against "Infertility"

It is not fair - in fact, it's often the opposite of fair.
It feels helpless - completely out of your control.
There are more layers of stress than you ever could have known.
It doesn't make sense no matter how much you try.
It wears you down, month after month of high highs and low lows.

It makes you want to scream and kick.
It makes you want to hurl something.
It makes you want to lash out.
It makes you want to hold your breath, clam up and shut down.

To say infertility is maddening may be the understatement of the century!

What does one do with this jaw clenching, heart thumping, fist pounding, foot stamping anger?

Scream and yell?

Break something?

Punch something?


We may very well do all these and more at the March fertility retreat.  Join me to explore why feeling angry is okay along with ways to work with and through the anger to come to a more peaceful and receptive place.

I promise you, you aren't alone! Come join what is sure to be a dynamic and passionate group of women and see what you can do with this feeling that feels so big.

Hope to see you there!

Hi Nicole,
I am assuming this is on March 16th rather than the 18th? (the 18th is a Monday)
