Spring Cleaning – Engage Blog

I usually experience the energetic surge to evaluate, purge and stretch my comfort zone in the fall. September is my New Year – characterized by the compulsion to examine my clothes closet, my bookshelves, my waistline and the files taking space in my mind. All...

As the ides of April drag on – with a blizzard yesterday morning and endless puddles of thawing mud – I am experiencing the highs and lows assigned by my consciousness. I am uncomfortably aware of the connection between my ears and the stress centre in my brain. And...

Pain Management – Engage Blog

For most of my life, I have been a woman of action. With barely a mention, I show up to move furniture, make a meal, take a walk, paint a wall. I am comfortable in the kitchen, on the trail, or at bedside, rubbing moisturizer into the scaly, dry skin of an ailing...
