It's been one of those weeks where you listen to your soul and realize there has to be a better place for you, where you can both feel deeper happiness and at the same time help more people.
One of my favorite things to do when completing a long drive is to pop in a book on CD or tape. This past weekend during a round trip to crazy Madison, Wisconsin, I popped in Deepak Chopra's audiobook called "Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire". He talks about archetypes and how we all have about three distinct ones within ourselves. He talks about how coincidences are not really coincidences and how our lives are on a very calculated track that we cannot begin to comprehend within our ego.
I also went to see him at the convention center and had him sign a couple of books. Some people are amazing in their ability to project their power and love to others and he is one of those people. One day I hope to be one of those people, too. It's all about finding the path. Or the path finding you, I guess.
Hmmm...what else is going on? For your relaxation in the Twin Cities, I'd like to recommend two great massage therapists. Downtown at the Juut Salon (6th and Nicollet in Gaviddae Common), I highly recommend Chad Hauck. For a while there, when I was working downtown a lot, I frequented him quite a bit.
Also highly recommended at Pagoda (28th and Hennepin) is Ty (last name unknown). He just gets it. He is truly a healer. Yesterday at work, it was a very hellacious day. It was one of those emergency massage days and I was fortunate to get in with such an amazing therapist at the last minute. Pagoda is amazing. After your massage there is a steam room. Ahhhhhh.........They also have a little bar with juice, healthy food, etc. It rocks. Oh, did I mention it's in the old Public library building and it includes valet parking?
Sorry, not much inspiration to write about lately in terms of food, but I am getting quite positive reponse in terms of beginning an Type A support group in Minneapolis. It would be so fun to connect with others in this city! Please post a comment on my comment page if you'd like to join us! I had a commenter who is interested in organizing the whole thing so I'm sure this will be happening very soon especially as Spring is almost here!
