Life’s not easy for anyone. We all experience disappointing stuff. It can really hurt and bring us down or show us new and better ways. There are choices when times are tough and we feel like we’re going to explode, meltdown or give up. Some of us opt for another glass of wine or big piece of chocolate cake to relieve the pain. But there is a price to be paid for "eating our feelings" or drowning them in alcohol. We really don't want those extra pounds or a headache in the morning. Our podcast is full of better ideas to help turn disappointment into hope and melt pain away for good. It's fun conversations filled with inspiring real-life stories, fresh attitudes and new ideas. It's friends helping friends get through and get over negative emotions and crappy feelings and heal the wounds they leave behind. It's all about living a healthy life full of peace and joy. We hope you'll give one of our episodes a listen. Were pretty sure you'll discover something that will put you on a new path that will leave you feeling better about yourself and your life.

CELTIC SPIRITUALITY WORKSHOP & STORYTELLING with Mary Hayes Grieco
Circles, cycles, the wheel of the year, the wisdom of the woods, a cave that calls out to you, and a tricksy Brigid's cross ...This St. Patrick's Day, go deeper, beyond the painted green faces and silly hats (and the cultural invite to drink too much!) and explore the spirit of Ireland that can nourish your spirit today, whether your ancestry includes the Irish or not. Enjoy a 2-hour podcast session that will offer you new spiritual practices from this ancient source, and also delight you with Mary Hayes Grieco's signature storytelling about the magic she experienced in her visits to Ireland, "home of her soul." (Originally presented as a workshop on zoom on Sunday, March 14, 2021.)
"Ireland retains in its rocks and waters a place for the wild soul to roam and dream." Mary Hayes Grieco

“Christ Consciousness” – it’s a Universal Thing
On this Christmas Day, we revisit a podcast that aired in our first season of podcasts, Life Gets Better Now, at Christmas time in 2015.
Today the Christian world celebrates the birth of Jesus, but beyond the historical and religious Jesus, there is a Universal Spirit that he fully embodied; each of us can tap into that spiritual consciousness to some degree, no matter what our level of church affiliation or non- affiliation is. Let’s call it “Christ Consciousness.” It’s when you discover a space that is inside you, and you are inside it, where you remember what is so easy to forget: We are all One. In this moment of awareness, you feel encouragement, bliss, a desire to serve, blessing, thriving, unity.
As John Lennon put it, Imagine all the people … living life in peace … you may say I’m a dreamer. But I’m not the only one. I hope one day you’ll join us, and the world will live as one.
As winter’s darkness grows, it brings us the gift of knowing how much we love the light, and that we want to “be a light” for ourselves and for everyone else.
Take some time amid the noise and bustle of the holiday week to cozy up with Mary and Erin as their conversation leads you down and in to find that quieter, deeper place of peace. The blessing of being in Christ Consciousness can happen in a moment.
We wish that moment for you, whoever you are, wherever you are in your journey
– Merry Christmas!
