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...


Workshops for Parents and Parent's To Be

I know many reading my blog want nothing more than to become parents, for you, I hope your dream comes true! I also know there are a fair number of readers who have worked with me through the journey of becoming parents and are now joyfully parenting or preparing for babies.  This post is for you.

I'm on the parent advisory committee (PAC) for the South Minneapolis Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) we are bringing TWO amazing and completely FREE workshops to you. These workshops are about the power of play (something that resonates deeply with me as a person who practices holistic healthcare... play is part of the WHOLE person (grown ups and children alike!)

I'd love to see you at one or both of these amazing events...

The Power of Play:  
Practicing Playful Perspectives in Family Life
with Seniz Lennes    
Tuesday, October 22nd 6-8pm Anne Sullivan School Auditorium 

Rough & Tumble Play
with Mike Huber

Today’s families are faced with new challenges - Test scores, play dates, organized activities & events, glaring gender roles, less free time, more screen time, and other modern pressures ALL get in the way of PLAY! 

We hope you will join us to examine these shifts, your perspective as a parent, and your child’s needs. TWO nights, TWO expert speakers! Come learn practical ideas, ways to make parenting more fun, ways to help your kids be healthier and happier and ways to make life more playful for the whole family!
