The James Hotel Chicago. Holistically Getting It Right

A few days ago, some in-store appearances to promote my Holistic Home Company beauty, wellness and home products, as well as doing some book signings for both The Holistic Home and The Holistic Dog books brought me to Chicago. While there I stayed at The James Hotel and could not have been happier. With my next book in the pipeline, The Holistic Hotel: Lodging for Mind, Body, Spirit Space, my senses are particularly heightened concerning every aspect of the boutique hotel experience. In writing this next book – as per the format from my previous books, my Pratt lectures for architects and the basis for my company philosophy – I examine the mind, body, spirit and space aspects, addressing the mighty impact of the interconnectedness of it all.

It’s here! The Holistic Dog: Inside The Canine Mind, Body, Spirit, Space (Helios/Skyhorse) has launched and is now available on Amazon and soon, where ever books are sold!

After writing the stories of 108 dogs, I noticed that there are often deeper lessons behind the dogs we choose to have in our lives.

One of the great side effects of being asked to give an answer that will be published widely, is that it causes you to pause and evaluate your perspective. In gathering my thoughts, I realized that my intuition seems to be what has guided my success. Here is the answer I gave them:

Forget New Years Resolutions and Just Do This…

A New Year inevitably brings a yearning for a clean slate, a new you and fresh beginnings. Its almost innately programmed into us, with the most popular question on the eve of the New Year being, “What are your new years resolutions?” Losing weight, drinking more water, working out more, being more organized?
