Great Links for a Good Life {04.22.15}


Welcome to my personal selection of exceptional posts from around the web, inspiring resources to help you live the best possible life, and a good book or two.  Enjoy!


Courses, Books, and Other Good Stuff

  • I wish I could take photographs like Tammy Strobel.  Her images are indeed Everyday Magic and that’s the name of her photography e-course too.  It starts May 4th.  Check it out and see if it might be for you.
  • Have you signed up for my free weekly Stress Relief Tips yet?  Or maybe you would like to go full-tilt and dive into my course, Living with Ease:  The Mindful Way to Less Stress.
  • If you are interested in intelligent writing and stimulating courses by gentle yet savvy women check out Mindfulist, the new meeting hub for wise, conscious women at midlife and beyond who desire to live a joyful, meaningful, healthy, peacefully creative life.
  • After many years, I’m re-reading Quantum Healing:  Exploring the Frontiers of Mind/Body Medicine by Deepak Chopra {affiliate link} at the recommendation of my dear friend Zeenat Syal.  I’m feeling a sense of wonderment as I read about how truly complex, intelligent, and miraculous the body is.  I can’t wait to get to the punch line:  what’s the secret to quantum healing?

How has your month been?  I wonder if it’s just me.  It feels like there’s a whirl of astrological forces that are holding me in a state of uncertainty and stirring up some of my deepest wounds. It’s all good though because, I know, when the pain rises to the surface, healing can begin. So I don’t have to be afraid of it.  It also arouses such a bittersweet sense of compassion for others as well.

Did any of these links especially resonated for you?

P. S.  Happy Earth Day!  Aren’t we fortunate to have this gorgeous earth to feed, house, and mezmerize us?  I have a story to share of learning to work on the land, coming up Sunday.

Thanks for reading!  If you have a moment to share the goodness on social media, I would be deeply grateful.  May you be well, happy, and safe. With love, Sandra

My Hawaii Life: Celebrating the Healing Power of Nature


  1. Thanks so much Sandra for including my “Post-Traumatic Growth” essay here among your impressive list of suggested reading. I can see I have my afternoon’s topics already picked out!

  2. Hi Sandra,

    Well I’m bookmarking five of these for immediate reading! I’ve just started using Pocket to save links for later reading and I’m loving it – along with your reading recommendations of course 🙂

    It sounds like you’re in the midst of some profound healing. Keep up the amazing work – you will come out wiser than ever although I already consider you to be one of the wisest women I know. x A

    • Hi Dear Annabel! Interesting, it’s the second time I’ve heard Pocket mentioned today. I think I’ll check it out although I do well with Feedly. Please enjoy the reading.

      It’s all about profound healing, isn’t it? We just keep moving along the path getting wiser each day. I see the same happening for you and am always inspired by how you embrace all that arises in your life.

    Thanks for the links, love the information.

    So nice to know there are people like me out there. Your insight and comments are very much appreciated.


    • You’re welcome, Cindy! It’s so affirming to connect with us who have the same way of looking at things. Take care and thanks for connecting.

  4. Hi Sandra!

    Again, thank you for including me on your list!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Thank you for the links, Sandra! As always, I enjoyed nearly all of them. I loved the thoughts on body acceptance, as this is something I have struggled with for a long time, and the piece on death doulas was interesting (and I think very necessary).

    I also enjoy your daily stress tips. 🙂

    • You’re welcome, Bethany. I’m glad you enjoyed them. Those two especially caught my attention as well. Thanks for the thumbs up on my stress relief tips. 🙂
