One Blissful Day



here's the line-up:


Judy Clement Wall

She'll be TALKING about self-love (why it's so hard and so very important), how to make self-love a practice, and specifically, how GRATITUDE can be the easiest, most effective, life-changing self-love tool of all. Then we'll switch gears a bit, do some magical ART tricks, and CREATE beautiful, personally meaningful gratitude wheels so that you can launch your own 30-day gratitude project.


Misty Scholz

She discovered the healing effects of YOGA at the age of 18 and has continued to build on that foundation. She is interested in sharing with the community the connection between breath, mind, and body which brings health and peace of mind. Misty has been teaching yoga for four years, has attained YA 500hr, and is still learning! She has added TAROT card readings to her bag of tricks, as they can be used to shine a light on areas of your life that can use some attention, and provide a lens for guidance towards a more balanced state.


Matt Phillips

Dubbed the "SoundMan"... Matt found the healing and transformative nature of sound when he started playing the didgeridoo almost 5 years ago. Soon after, he was drawn to the gong after attending his first Gong Bath. He has studied with sound healers and gong masters and is now sharing this powerful medium with the community. He will be sharing his talents with his GONGS for the best savasana this side of the equator, and later for private SOUND BATHS.


Deanna Abney

An amazing San Francisco designer, who draws inspiration from a love of the simple yet remarkable designs found in nature and a personal resonance with living in balance with life’s natural cycles. In her jewelry TRUNK SHOW you will find representations of such elegance….movement, flow, organic shapes, tinkling sounds, balance within asymmetry, draping waterfall effects of chains, sparkles, glints, and warm metals against the skin. Never heavy, never locked in place, but free to take on the natural currents of the wearer.


Lisa Moss

Cocoa Crayon was born in New York City in 2003 when founder, Lisa Moss, a former magazine editor and new mom, was on a mission to find unique, useful, happy, high quality items for her family.

The Power of Momentum... 

If I walked up to you, and told you I have the secret to escaping your crazy mind, would you believe me? If I added that simultaneously, your body will begin to heal, and your problems will dissolve into plans, would you think I was the crazy one?

Before I got sick with ovarian cancer, a few years ago, I sure would’ve thought the idea was crazy. At the very most, it could be a “made for TV” item for sale; maybe the magic elixir could be sold at gas stations, next to the candles and neck pillows. Haven’t we all been gifted one of those lavender neck pillows? They are good for car rides, but I never seem to have mine in the car!

I have had to make peace with my anxiety, I worry a lot about my kids, and I fight off worrying about not being around for my kids as they grow up. These thoughts creep in; however, like a meandering river that finds its way around big boulders and small dams, I have found the way to keep these thoughts from taking root for too long. Something I never thought about before, is the river’s progress isn’t so much the result of the power of water… but rather the power of momentum.

The power of momentum literally keeps the river’s intention alive. A river defies stagnation, nature has far better plans for her day. The same goes for keeping our bodies and minds clear of toxins and toxic thoughts, and the best way to do this is through yoga (and drinking lots of fluids). It is through the routine practice of hitting your mat, staying hydrated, and focusing on your breath that you can keep clear site on your intentions.

As I age, I use the benefits of hindsight to move my goals forward. Looking back on my life, I see where my true-self grew from moving and stretching to reach alignment not only with my body, but with my mind. Your breath will literally bring your body, heart and mind into alignment with your quest; it creates momentum to stay on your path towards inner peace. And this momentum will bring you back to your mat each day, bringing more and more of your life into clear waters.

Calm, beautiful, clear waters to carry your dreams to fruition… but if my practice stalls, and my mat stays rolled up tight, it is not long before my body follows. My muscles will tighten, my shoulders round and my breathing stalls. Often the anxiety comes first, and then everything gets worse; such an easy fix to a rather annoying list of problems. The American Osteopathic Association put a succinct list of the physical benefits together:

Increased flexibility.
Increased muscle strength and tone.
Improved respiration, energy and vitality.
Maintaining a balanced metabolism.
Weight reduction.
Cardio and circulatory health.
Improved athletic performance.
Protection from injury.

It is from experience that I know my head and body improve, and everyone else who is committed will share the same. I now keep my momentum going with yoga, and find breathing to be the best elixir around. I keep the pressure off, and do what I can, even if it’s simply a sun salutation (a simple series of moves that lights up over 95% of your muscles).

The best part is how easy it is to access yoga nowadays; I do most of my practice online at home (Gaia, Wanderlust TV and YouTube). In fact, yoga in my pajamas is becoming popular in my house, and your pets will love to join in on the fun. When I’m not trying to fit my practice into a tight schedule, I do enjoy a luxurious class at a studio; and I appreciate the added benefit of enjoying a new ritual or modification to an old asana.

So, stop standing at the river’s edge, and get in… breathe the water, and make your body flow with the momentum of your intentions.

They call it “chemo fog” and when combined with a bit of hearing loss, it was much easier to hang-out on my computer keyboard than a loud restaurant. So I started my blog and created the website to share my groovy new take on life. I want to embrace and honor the beauty and simplicity of choosing to be mindful:

"I moved through that first year with a thirst for knowledge, growth and self-love… I reprioritized and questioned all that I had become due to stress and too little time. I literally “seized the day”, each and every day, by seeing how each step and each choice I made could weave together for a more healthy life overall. And it’s true, small differences can add up to shocking changes over (not much) time and once this pattern is set into motion it is an undeniable force for good. The key to mastery is habit and I don’t say this lightly; habitual activities make up our days and we have the control of what and how we choose to live our lives."

From discipline to devotion in one small book... and a place where mindful nutrition and emotional hygiene can mingle for a more healthy lifestyle.
