It has certainly been a long time since my last post. As many of you know I have been somewhat pre-occupied with a lengthy sequence of radiation treatments for an early stage prostate cancer. Thankfully that is now over and I am regaining energy and momentum. I will find out in February how successful the treatment has been - I am very confident that all is now well. (For those who would like to read the full story, check my blog Dancing with Prostate Cancer.)


In addition it has been a busy time in my 'day-job', coaching high school and college students through the process of designing, building and lighting theater shows and gallery exhibitions. (As one friend said recently "I don't have a life - I work in theatah dahling!). All this has left me little time to update the OTH blog.


In spite of the busyness of the last three months the team held two very successful workshops: The Opening the Heart to Grief and Loss Workshop at the Avow Hospice in Naples, Florida and the regular OTH Workshop at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lenox, Massachusetts. Linda, Donna, Jon and I love presenting these workshops and are delighted that so many people find them such a positive, transformative experience. The outstanding success of the new Grief and Loss Workshop, sponsored by Hospice, has led us to ponder other new directions, including the possibility of a dedicated Opening the Heart Workshop for those newly diagnosed with a terminal illness. We will be putting a lot of energy into this new departure over the next months. Further details will follow.


In the meantime make a note of our next OTH Workshop presentation at Kripalu

I hope that you will consider joining us there to celebrate the first glimpses of Spring.


I would also like to draw your attention to an exciting new program for women that is being created by a close frind, Sonny Rose. It is called The Healing Beyond Cancer. Sonny is a skilled therapist and teacher who has had her own brush with cancer. I have known her for 25 years and highly recommend her program.
