Blossoming Presence​


July Message

Ahhh July ~ the seventh month of the year.

Feeling the sense of an earthy gallop and flight.


Unicorns are part of nature, very much part of our dreams, and absolutely live in our hearts.  

They symbolize our longing for the mystery

and unattainable.


We may think Independence in July.

I like Interdependence, as I feel interconnected webs influencing every step, blink, and wink.  


As we delve into what we wish for not knowing

how it can possibly be in our relationships and creations of all kinds ~ tune to the wisdom of those who have gone before us, welcome them and send wishes for their play.  


Invite the unknown while giving up

the overactive mind,

allowing the truth to unfold

as it inevitably is.


Blossoming Wishes 

Love, Shelley

Always be yourself
Unless you can be a unicorn
Then be a unicorn

The Internet's Own Boy

















Aaron Swartz ~ do you know him?  

He will be a great part of history moving forward.  

Aaron was a child technological prodigy, a computer programmer, hacker, freedom of information activist,

and humanitarian.  

I saw a screening of The Internet's Own Boy at

Aspen Ideas Festival, a think tank event part of Aspen Institute.  The film maker Brian Knappenberger spoke after the screening along with MayDay Pac founder, Harvard Law professor

and legal activist Lawrence Lessig.


 I was moved deeply by the brilliance of a young boy

to bring truth and social justice to the world.


You can watch the Creative Commons version of

The Internet's Own Boy FREE here or rent/buy it

here from Vimeo and it is playing in movie theaters now.  

Thank you Aaron and RIP.










Yoga For Healing



This book came forth after two years working at New York Cornell Mental Hospital two days a week.  I was the dance/yoga therapist teaching kindergarten through high school to students either living in the mental hospital or receiving their schooling there. 


 I felt such deep connection to each person and longing to use the science of yoga to make real and lasting change.  


The next step in my path was to assist in developing the yoga department at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Hospital.  

I taught the pediatric yoga program, gave private sessions in patients rooms, had group classes as well as care givers yoga, and did home visits.  Witnessing such profound inner healing using the science

of yoga I started to compile many stories. 


We are each a heroine or hero 

on a great journey.  From that perspective we begin our journey enlightened and create a life of experiences in order to realize and reunite with our all encompassing light.

~Joseph Campbell 


I wrote Yoga For Healing to inspire those

I was working with from amazing souls experiencing transformation literally around the corner from one another and

to strengthen my personal life healing.  


I feel it is time to share this freely with all who may benefit.  When sharing with others please keep this work in full context and copyright honoring.  Thank you.

Understanding Breath
relating from the heart


Begin a steady rhythmic breath

inhaling and exhalingfrom the nostrils.


Now begin breathingfrom the seat of the eyes.  
Perceive your breath and the life force

in and from the eyes.


Now begin breathing 

from the seat of the ears. 

 Listening and feeding prana

into your hearing.


Now begin breathing 

from the seat of the mouth.  

Taste the prana.


Now begin breathing

 from the seat of the nose.  

Smell the fragrance of prana.


 Now begin breathing

 from the seat of the skin.  

Feel the life force dance

on the nerve endings of the skin.


Now breathe from within.

Knowing your divine presence.
