Recent speaking/teaching event

I recently spoke about my healing journey and life with chronic illness at a conference in San Antonio, TX for elderly patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). At the event, I also led a mindfulness meditation and modified gentle yoga session.

Here’s what the participants had to say:



    “This was a quite informative and different approach to relaxation and any breathing exercise advice is MOST helpful and appreciated.”


    “Self-care is vital to everyone, with or without IPF. I enjoyed the breathing and stretching exercises and will most certainly continue them. They are very relaxing and


    “The exercises were so simple and manageable to do and so beneficial. I will try at home.”


    “Self-care has become such an important part of my life at this time. As parents, we always think of our children first, but now it’s time to take care of myself in order to be
    around for those I love in my life.”


    “I have been around these techniques for a long time but never participated. I should have sooner.”


    “The breathing and stretching exercises are something I do throughout the days and nights. A little more in a different manner [like in today’s session] is great!”
