Forty percent of Americans nap after Thanksgiving turkey. What if they took a 30 minute walk instead &, along the way, considered their fitness balance? HOW WOULD YOUR LIFE CHANGE if you took one of those walks every day? Continue reading
Yes. Gratitude is surely at the heart of all great prayers - Thank you to God rather than asking God for more. Thank you, Liz. Thank you, Terry. Your watercolor, Liz, says a wordless and beautiful thank you.

Shared by Liz Sorensen Wessel "If the only prayer you say in your entire life is thank you that would suffice." Meister Eckhart May you be quickened by the Spirit who fills the whole earth and lives in you. May you stand firm and tall like a mountain. May you... Continue reading
Thanks so much, Liz. I know that YOU continue to have a magical and beautiful impact on all the people with whom you work. They are SO lucky to have you in their midst and will always remember how you enriched their lives.
Thanks, Todd. Red shirts and the odd fact that we are all 6 feet (or much taller in the case of 6'5" Jim Wheaton on the left.) Had not noticed that until I saw the photograph. Not sure what any of that means but we sure have engaged similar leadership approaches and, as a result, also had a great time together.
Thanks so much, Don. And thank YOU for the beautiful impact you had on so many - patients, family - and your co-workers!

The joy of seeing loved ones and the sorrow of missing those who are no longer here. The poignancy of life’s fleeting nature enhances our... Continue reading

Why is confession "good for the soul?" Does arrogance block our ability to see our own personality problem? Does acceptance put us on the path to a certain kind of salvation? Continue reading
There is such power in your images of stars and your references to your retreat experiences with a circle of women, Liz. We see oneness knowing that we are already one and simultaneously wondering why that often seems so illusive amid occasional loneliness. Thank you for referencing how oneness rises when others hear as well as listen. Then we can offer what you eloquently describe: "...revelations within a safe space of mutual vulnerability and trust." This is sacred space - space I hope we can all create for each other and visit more often. Thank you, Liz.

Wonderful, Teresa. I am sure you have created many masterpieces already (some unrecognized as such?) and have more to come.

You have trained all of your life to become your best at your work. Perhaps, you have only been making drawings & drafts & are just now ready to create your personal masterpiece. Continue reading

""He was the greatest creative genius in history & the ultimate example of someone who connected art & science & spirit," Walter Isaacson says. We can probably learn more from Leonardo Da Vinci than we can from any other person who ever lived. Continue reading
"...we are challenged/ to pour ourselves/ into the human endeavor…" Sister Marcia's poem expresses so well what is before each life - and so do both of your watercolors. Will we take up this challenge in ways that truly bring light to others. You pose all of this so well. Thank you for this post, Liz.

Note: Reflection offered by Liz Sorensen Wessel Enter the Struggle …we are challenged to pour ourselves into the human endeavor… Knowing full well that it is the struggles and how we are with others that matters. Success is left to God, held lightly and regarded as pure gift. ~Marcia Allen,... Continue reading

"The heart is the whole thing. We are only pieces." Rumi wrote. The 13th century Persian mystic wrote glorious poetry & not a verse of it is out of date. We want our hearts to be dwelling places for Love. Yet, the hardest people to touch with out love can sometimes be those closest to us. Continue reading

They gaze at each other, sunlit beings linked by blood, separated in age by three years & one month, joined forever in the love of sister & brother. Two-week-old Reed Chapman owns that baby's ability to stare unselfconsciously because he is not conscious of his selfhood. What if adults practiced what Reed does naturally? The eyes hold enormous power to heal. There is a beautiful energy in the healer's gaze - something all of us can learn. Continue reading
Yes, "love holds our universe together" and it is love that identifies us as human. Thank you for posting Jan's poem and for sharing your beautiful heart.

Note: Reflection offered by Liz Sorensen Wessel Blessing When the World is Ending Look, the world is always ending somewhere. Somewhere the sun has come crashing down. Somewhere it has gone completely dark. Somewhere it has ended with the gun, the knife, the fist. Somewhere it has ended with the... Continue reading

"We dream - it is good we are dreaming -/ It would hurt us were we awake..." Does Dickinson's quote reflect how you feel? Was Plato right when he wrote that "All of life is a dream?" Continue reading
