Los Cabos on The Baja and Flora Farms

Flora Farms – One of the Faves

Many of my aunts, uncles and cousins lived on farms during my youth and I spent many happy times playing in the hay lofts, ponds, with the pets and helping in the gardens.

When we are at our comfy oceanfront casita Topaz at Casa del Mar in the Los Cabos Corridor or if guests are renting it, I always mention a trip to Flora Farms in Las Animas for drinks or a delicious meal.

Flora Farm is a working organic farm and is truly a delight to all the senses! You can purchase fresh produce and preserves, wander through the art gallery and/or book a tour of the farm and ‘culinary cottages’.

The resident dogs provide a very friendly touch!

Be sure to add Flora Farms to your list of ‘to dos’ for your next trip to Los Cabos!

Freedom is a bigger game than power. Power is about what you can control. Freedom is about what you can unleash.”

Women ~ Life ~ Health: Family Summer Vacations

Yes, it is possible to go on a fun sailing holiday with adult ‘kids’.

Our experience is that everyone reverts to childhood, even the parents (part of the time). We have hot cocoa and bedtime stories (the difference is they tell them to us) and tons of reading and candles and charades, lots of laughs and lots of hugs!

In case you are interested, I’m currently reading “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed for our book club discussion in September!

Enjoy your beautiful summer day and hug your kids extra lots.

In peace & mindfulness,

Zoey

Women ~ Health ~ Life: Nature & Spirituality

It is said in many spiritual traditions that sunrise and sunset are those times of day when the veil between the physical world and the spiritual world is the thinnest.

Personally, I find sunrise and sunset to be magical.

If I can, I pause and say a prayer of thanks and gratitude for all my life’s blessings.

I would like to share the photo of a magical sunset from the Gulf Islands of BC that I experienced last night.

In peace & mindfulness,

Women ~ Life ~ Health: Sailing As A Mindfulness Exercise

There’s nothing like sailing to keep one mindful and in the present!

Today, crossing the entrance to Nanaimo Harbour, we came across all manner of watercraft. One certainly needs to be aware and observant. We saw dragon boaters, other sail boats, kayakers, ferries, swimmers and power boats.

It really is a metaphor for life and the wide variety of personalities one encounters. If we are ‘awake’ and mindful, we are open to the complexities and layering of relationships and appreciative of difference.

Enjoy your one ‘wild & precious’ day!

In peace & mindfulness,

Women ~ Health ~ Life: Mindfulness Based Body Centered Life Coaching

I talk about my style of coaching as being a matrix, with the following concepts and pairs layered and angled: art & science, yin & yang, mind & heart, body & soul, broad & deep, eastern & western etc! I add to this blend my life experience and various forms of formal training to create a blend of coaching for the body, mind and soul.

Two wonderfully valuable resources that have informed my practice are listed below:

‘Wise Heart: A Guide to the Universal Teachings of Buddhist Psychology” by Jack Kornfield

And

“Body Centered Coaching: Using the Body as a Resource For Change” by Marlena Field, PCC, CPCC

Enjoy this magnificent day!

Women ~ Health ~ Life: A Summer Sailing Vacation Nourishes My Soul

I am slowly feeling re-energized and have been reminded how important it is to take time off!

Recently, and totally unconsciously, I got back on the treadmill, albeit, a ‘health’ treadmill. I over did ‘life’ by over scheduling and even though it was all activities I love, my energy was depleted.

Life coaches should know better, right?

Well, this life coach miscalculated. I felt the adrenalin rush from thinking I could do it all, from feeling almost invincible. My body feels different too, shallower breathing, and a kind of vibrating intensity.

So, now, I’m sitting on our sailboat, in Plumper Cove, off Keats Island, on the Sunshine Coast of BC, being gently rocked by the sea.

Ahhh, this is nourishment for my body and soul.

In peace & mindfulness,

Zoey

Women ~ Life ~ Health: An Inspirational Rumi Quote to Start the Day!

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
People are coming back and forth across the doorsill
Where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.

~ Rumi
