About Soulmates...


“A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life. ” ― Richard Bach

"Second Firsts" an AMAZING New Book From Christina Rasmussen


From the Author: "I have actually never embraced or accepted my loss. How could I ever. I have never agreed with the concepts "it was meant to be" or "there is a reason for everything."

I always found those words sterile and with no meaning.

Instead I built roads, pathways, bridges and highways around and through my loss and on to different lands. Where my loss could shift to my evolution, growth and wisdom by taking what was and Creating what will be.

Build your bridge and find your path to a new beginning, and never just agree or accept what the world is so used to telling us about our loss.

“Second Firsts will change the way you think about life after loss. With simplicity, science, and raw authenticity, Christina takes you on a journey from a world of loneliness and pain to one of possibilities and action. Her kind and knowledgeable words provide hope and show you that loss can actually inspire the strength and conviction to create the life of your dreams. And her own life stands as a testament to the power of this process.” —Marci Shimoff, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Love for No Reason and Happy for No Reason

Encore of Geneen Roth - Questions and Answers and Information on Her Spring Retreat

It’s spring (yippee!) and the perfect time to step out from the winter coats of old patterns and engage in a spring release. So last Sunday, I answered your questions LIVE on a free call. It was fabulous – as it always is when you get a group together about the issues that matter. To listen to this unforgettable call, click here.This streaming audio will be available through Wednesday, April 23rd. Feel free to share it with your friends and family members, or whomever you’d like to invite into our circle.


Also here is information regarding Geneen's Spring Retreat:

Spending these six days away from your day-to-day life is a rare opportunity to work with Geneen in person and dive deeply into your relationship with food and all that it can reveal to you. During the retreat, you will learn a whole new way to relate to food — and explore the foundation upon which you build your life and your relationships. Over and over, throughout the retreat, you will have the direct experience of non-compulsive eating, amazing joy and sensing your body from the inside out. And once you know those things are possible for you, you can never go back to believing that they’re not.

How will it make a difference?

You come to a retreat because you want to change your relationship with food; then you realize that food is just the doorway to the rest of your life. To issues of wanting more and never having enough, to the very things that keep you from joy, from a pure gorgeous sense of deserving to be fully alive.

If you can not get to the retreat I Whole-heartedly recommend ANY of Geneen's books. My personal fav? Women Food and God. An amazing book with a fresh new way to look at your relationship with food

What an amazing charitable organization!


Soundgarden‘s Chris Cornell and his wife Vicky started their charitable organization late last year with the idea of raising funds to help protect vulnerable children facing homelessness, poverty or neglect and abuse. And while most of their philanthropic work has been private and anonymous, they’ve opened up a fundraising auction allowing the fans a chance to get involved in the good will.



“A friend is one to whom one may pour out the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that gentle hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.” ~ George Eliot

Dodinsky-New York Times Best Selling Book - In The Garden of Thoughts


We are so thrilled to be able to bring to you one of our favorite books.

DODINSKY is the author of the New York Times bestseller, In The Garden of Thoughts, which has also been published in Brazil, Germany, South Korea, Argentina, Mexico and China. His intent was simply to share his reflections about life in order to help heal the wounds inflicted by life's troubles. At the time, the man known by his readers as Dodinsky had no idea that within months of starting his blog In The Garden of Thoughts, thousands of readers would find healing through the modest words he planted. "I was humbled to see that in my own little way, I was affecting the lives of others," says Dodinsky of the appreciative emails that quickly flooded his inbox. "One reader named Robin wrote, 'If only my son [had] read your works, he would still be alive today.' Robin's son had taken his own life. Like so many others, she became a loyal reader and champion of spreading his work." It is clear from the moment one lands on "In The Garden of Thoughts" that there are many out there like Robin. The focus of Dodinsky's short writings--love, compassion, growth, tolerance, and self-worth--clearly resonate with his readers, whom Dodinsky calls "gardeners." His page has become a community in which people from all walks of life share their own stories. "I truly believe that within us, there is a Garden of Thought in which we can find solace whenever we are going through a storm. The response to my work shows that there are many on the same path. Each of us needs words that bring comfort, and an understanding that one is not alone when facing adversity." Today Dodinsky's intent, like the man himself, has blossomed: he'd like to be able to give his "gardeners" the gift book they often request.

This Book and others will be available to order on our website shortly

Why Orange is the New Black is My New Favorite Show


It draws you in and you feel compelled to watch it show after show. We gobbled it up like a binge eater goes through a bag of Oreo's - one after the other, on and on until it was all over. That is exactly how it went down the day we found Orange is the New Black on Netflix. Created by Jenji Kohan, the show is based on a true story that reveals itself in dramatic and comedic excellence taking its influence from the book "Orange Is the New Black" by Piper Kerman. Lucky for us we had the whole day free so Mike and I binge fed ourselves on OITNB all day long. Taking only the occasional bathroom breaks and getting refills on sustaining food to help get us through. We love how the show weaves the back story of each character, so you come to understand how each one ended up in prison. You become attached to them and the actors do such a wonderful job you begin to feel the emotion of their plight. Whether self induced or not, they still ended up in prison, and you, as the viewer "feel it" too. All of the actors go deep into their characters. You forget for example that Laura Prepon, who plays Alex, was the character Donna Pinciotti on That 70's Show and that Kate Mulgrew, who plays "Red" on #OITNB, not only was in Ryan's Hope as Mary Ryan (which i watched in my late teens/early twenties) but she also was on Star Trek Voyager as Captain Kathryn Janeway! And who can forget, Pablo Schreiber. OMG -all I can say is, if I wasn't already married....whoa! Great actor and a great pornstache! So, if you haven't already taken the plunge into Netflix original series - "Orange is the New Black" you simply must give it a whirl. Just make sure you have enough food and water to get you through the binge watch that is about to ensue. Can not wait for season 2!
