Follow Me Where I Go, What I Do and Who I Know

Hey, faithful followers, please follow me where I go. You can stay right here too. But I would love to see you on my new site, Shanti Mom For One. I’ll explain that site in a moment, but this site is changing its name to Blog Mom Reviews. This site will be all reviews…CD’s, DVD’s, books, women’s products, children’s products, yoga gear, and whatever else they throw my way.

There is a group of you who like and comment on my posts and I would especially love for you to visit and follow Shanti Mom For One. I hope this works! I appreciate you.

Shanti Mom For One is specially designed for women and moms but you don’t have to be one of those to follow along. You can also join my FB group, which is an open forum for celebrations, frustrations, questions, and accomplishments.

I am Shanti Mom, a mother of one, honoring and celebrating all moms as an Author, Artist, and Educator. As a retired dance educator and ‘mother of advanced age’, my unique perspective on motherhood keeps life interesting.

My husband, Jeff, is a regional sales rep for the MAPEI Corporation. He loves his job, does very well, and provides for our family. We love him for that.

Author…

My very first book, In So Many Words, is available on Amazon. I have begun working on my second book, due out in the fall of 2017. Its working title is She Waited for Me.

I am also a Registered Yoga Teacher specializing in Yoga Therapy. I teach group classes, private lessons, and serve as a substitute for local studios. My classes are gentle, modified, and meditative. Teaching yoga gets me out of the house and keeps me grounded and balanced.

Kula: Family: Community: Love

My heart is so full of pride for my Kula and their contributions to my book being released on Friday November 4th.  In So Many Words is my honest and personal view of a small group of women who helped me change my life through yoga and spiritual guidance.

In this video from my YouTube Channel, Shanti Mom For One, MaryAnne reads an excerpt from the chapter we wrote together. It is a loving conversation about how dancers can spot each other anywhere.

My book will be available on Amazon and on my brand new website, also being launched on November 4th. I hope you will join in on the conversation.

Author in Waiting. Is the hard work done?

I am an author in waiting. Waiting for my publisher to say it is time to approve the lay out. Waiting for my videographer to show me his amazing work on the promo videos. Wondering if there is something I should be doing. But I did my part already. The hard work is done.

Or is it? Maybe waiting is harder. 11/4/16

Another sneak peek…

“Little did I know that a yoga community of women 20-25 years older than me would help me do this. They had been there, done that. They had grandchildren. They were enjoying retirement. Yoga was an everyday thing. They already had their man (or not). An outsider would say that we had absolutely nothing in common. Maybe we didn’t. But we had something. And it blossomed, gradually and fully, into deep relationships. It changed me. Forever.”

The Carry Home

Just started reading The Carry Home, by Gary Ferguson. I heard him interviewed on NPR and went straight to my local book store to buy it. They had one copy.

It’s a somewhat sad, yet heartfelt and inspiring story of his adventures with his wife of 25 years and what he endured and accomplished after her sudden death.

I didn’t realize he had written so many other books and that he’s pretty much been everywhere. What a life!
