helping those experiencing grief & loss to return to their natural state of being
Quantum healing involves healing one mode of consciousness – our mind – returning to the memory of wholeness in order to bring about healing in another aspect of consciousness – our body. When we realize our true source, we see that we are not our thoughts and we are not our body; we are pure, unbounded consciousness. First, let’s accept this moment exactly as it is. Once we accept, we can heal. The key is giving ourselves permission to accept our constrictions.
Love this quote, considering all the changes that have taken place , physically , finding ways to accept , and to allow things to be in this moment , in so many ways is liberating.the past year being faced with many ups and many downs, it has allowed me to learn so much about myself .
Yesterday my last surgery, removing obstacles, radiated tissue, creating the extremely hard tissue was removed. Dr Michael Tantillo M.D. | Longwood Plastic Surgery
Is without a doubt above and beyond in his gentle , compassionate and full attention to,I the patient .
On so many levels. Attention to emotional needs , attention to perfection , details. Being a surgeon is truly his calling.
I am so grateful , his expertise which has allowed me to experience my body, to be in my body, to hug wholeheartedly , to reach and to be able to have full mobility again... To him?
So grateful and so blessed!
Today I am overwhelmed with the results of what I thought I would have to live with , to
Being fully in my body!
Thankful to every doctor that has carried me thru this journey of Cancer.
Really feeling so blessed.
I hope I will be able to pay it forward , to help other women or men, to find a sense of HOPE!

Did the rose
Ever open its heart
And give to this world
All its Beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light
Against its Being.
We all remain
On my way for my last Michael Tantillo M.D. | Longwood Plastic Surgery
Will be removing contracted tissue surrounding my implant that was radiated. Leaving me to feel very uncomfortable and causing mobility issues ,as though something was between me and a hug.I am saying Yes , to moving forward. Because of contracture my breast is very hard which really gets in the way of a heartfelt snuggle with my Grandchildren. Always a reminder of my experience , not really able to just let it go.
For Christmas , I look forward to giving the biggest hugs to my family. So Grateful to my surgeon for being able to make , my quality of life ,to be and feel
Love directly from my heart to yours.
Hugs and love to all!
I Am so Grategul beyond words to be really present for my family friends and life . One year ago I was so sick, watching everyone else scurrying around to enjoy a great day, I , them reflected on the preparation , which Was a passion for me ,was like looking up at Mount Everest.... I peeking back in the rear view window was so sick! The most difficult part was allowing others to do it for me. Although so grateful to my sister, and family for running with it and making it a wonderful day!
This year we celebrate thanksgiving and Hannukah, and I am so humbled to have friends and family coming today and I and my husband hosting! So honored , so humbled , and beyond grateful to cook a turkey and to the preparation for all that comes together to share and commune in the spirit of love and gratitude !
I am elated, feeling this is kind of out of body for me to experience the smells of the turkey cooking, being surrounded with grandchildren and pure love! Every day every moment has become a prayer! Amen
Should never be offered to the mouth of a
Only to someone
Who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife
Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you.
I believe the powerful spirit Yoga brings into one’s being creates a presence of healing, wellness and peace.
My own unforeseen health challenges gave me a deeper appreciation for a place of personal knowledge and intimate control of body and mind.
A dual diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and breast cancer lowered my resistance and all but obliterated my stamina and energy. But, a chance encounter with yoga and an inner desire to recover revealed an opportunity to "seize the day!"
Today, my passion is for sharing the healing power and presence of mind and spirit that yoga brings, especially to those in the midst of grief and loss.
I live in Hanson, MA with my husband Bob and our dog Felix, and am so fortunate to have our three children and three grandsons close by. For 35 years, Bob has run the Magoun-Biggins Funeral Home in neighboring Rockland. Until my health challenges interfered, I coordinated aftercare offerings using my certification for anxiety and depression training.
My experience through nine years of difficult treatment in the healthcare system, followed by my physical and emotional healing has inspired me to share with others the practices and disciplines that helped me recover.
My program, seated, in a chair introduces therapeutic breathing and trauma sensitive meditation practice. This modified yoga program allows one to cultivate a more positive relationship with their physical body through mindfulness, This program provides a sequence that reaches out to anyone, a gentle safe place to connect to, even for a glimpse of time, an experience of stillness, a calm place where all healing begins.
A rich understanding of the connection of mind,body, spirit, weaves together theory, research, and personal experience of grief and loss and becomes an indispensable resource for those that are suffering, funeral directors, staff, and anyone else looking to rediscover the natural intelligence of our healing bodies.
The experience of Grief and Loss can leave people deeply and profoundly wounded, depressed, anxious, and feeling disconnected from self. To fully heal from such trauma, a connection to self, must be made. Overcoming Grief, Loss, and the agony of pain, connects oneself back to their body,and moving towards a more centered place of being.
Other programs explore the characteristics of grief sensitive yoga practice that can be incorporated by funeral caregivers, crematory and cemetery staff. Training that can be applied to aftercare programs,that enable them to reach out and in their communities for integrating yoga- based interventions for building grief senstive outreach.With awareness there comes a choice. And so you are able to say, "I allow this moment to be as it is" And then suddenly,where before there was darkness, there is now a sense of life and peace.
I’d love to discuss with you how I can help your organization incorporate meditation yoga and breath work into aftercare programs.
