Welcome to the Wabi-Sabi way of living
Living beyond chronic illness isn’t simple. We approach healing from a new perspective.
Wabi-sabi is most often used to describe art forms. It is about imperfection; about appreciating things all the more because you know that they are transitory and will pass and that nothing on earth is forever.

By ©Anne Goggans You might think yourself strong Made of stone With integral permanent strength Yet damaged, cracks crumble Bits of you Fall and scatter Chip, crack, disburse As the driest earth flakes, shed Just debris now These glimpses into a past no longer known All but gone A jumbled pile Then just a pebble […]

I don’t think anyone could argue against getting good sleep, especially when healing or dealing with life trauma. Restless sleep, or sleepless nights can plague a stress filled life, and lying in bed with racing thoughts and worries can throw a wrench in the works. Our family has had our share of exhaustion from not […]
