Welcome to Mindfulness + Magic, your source for inspiration about mind-body health, heart-centered living, and freedom for all beings.
As an ivy league graduate, health care provider and former professor of health sciences, I can appreciate the analytical mind and an evidence-based approach. But I’ve also seen the limitations and suffering that arise when we discount the unquantifiable and mysterious, such as the innate intelligence of the body and the heart, and a deep connection with other beings and nature. I’m dedicated to building a bridge between these two worlds to facilitate healing for individuals and for us as a culture.
