Welcome to Qi & Prana blogs
Updated: Mar 31, 2022
Welcome! I began blogging on WordPress back in 2009. I had no idea what I was doing. I just knew I loved writing. It doesn't mean I'm good at writing, I just knew I loved the process and cathartic feeling of putting voice to written word. I still do.
Here it is 2021, 5 websites later and well, I've ditched my WordPress blog. It wasn't super active. It was more a place where I could pretend to be a writer. And this blog is going to be the same -- a place for me to share some insight and perspective on the topics of Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Yoga and being human. In the past I've had sections on travel (since that's my other expertise), being a mom (not my expertise but making it up as I go), and what it's like to be a military spouse (again, not my expertise but it's like a whole new world and culture on this side of the military culture). I'm not sure how often I'll continue to write and blog about those parts of my life but don't be surprised if they get sprinkled in here and there.
More than anything I want these blogs to be educational, inspiring, and sharable.
If you like something here, share it!
Also, feel free to email me, especially if I use words or ideas to harm or hurt. I'm human just like you and make mistakes. I'm always unlearning, learning, and open to creating a world with more dignity. I also value living in a world where it's okay to make mistakes, learn from it, be forgiven, and grow together in our humanness. I have worked very hard over the last twenty years to drop my perfectionist ego and embrace "good enough." With that said, self-growth is my love language, so if you have something to disagree with, let me know. I'd be grateful for any and all feedback.
From my heart to yours,
