Many of you know that I started a holistic health center back in the early 1990’s.

Wellspring Holistic Center has been thriving ever since and I have been blessed to have worked alongside and taught with some really exceptional people.

Currently my amazing sister, Louise Bowman ~acupuncturist and nutritionist, and I are at the helm and the center is thriving and always filled with interesting people who challenge and delight us!

I am blogging there and hope you will follow us and our musings on health, nutrition, and wellness on all levels.

(contact us and let us know you want to follow us and we will add you!)

The cyberspace door is always open but we also love real bodies in real time, so consider a visit to our office in the Pocono Mountains of PA sometime soon!

My neighbor passed by yesterday riding a small John Deere tractor with a bright yellow plow on the front. I stopped shoveling to say hello. We were both practicing random acts of kindness by helping people in our neighborhood to clear the snow that had fallen the night before from their sidewalks and driveways.

“You know what they call this, don’t you,”he asked?

“No, I don’t,” I replied.

Onion snow,” he said. “It tells the farmers that it is time to plant the onions and get ready for the Spring crops.” “It is time to sow, plant, prepare, and grow.”

one day at a time

one day at a time

Today is the first day of Spring and we have a beautiful covering of snow here in the Northeast with plenty of buds pushing their way  up through the snow…nothing will stop them…they are ready to be born.

I am not so sure about myself. I am not feeling the push. I am not feeling the desire to work hard to come out of the ground and face the new season.

As my neighbor said, it is time to sow, plant, prepare, and grow.

My body wants to lie dormant, quiet, still, and ponder.

Can we go against the call of a season? The daffodils and tulips do not seem to have a choice, but do we?

My guess is that they are following an internal rhythm and flow. They are going with an instinct that is much deeper and visceral if you will….

And so this is my personal Spring calling: to follow my inner knowing, trust my gut, and take it one day at a time.

Fire and Emptiness

Don’t you just love that title?

Not sure what it is about it that gets me all riled up – but that is how I feel – all riled up whenever I say it!

gregory and me in santa cruz (where he lives)

It is also the new name of my brother, Gregory’s website and business.

I can vouch for his work! I have had about 6 sessions with him in the past year and each one has brought so much wisdom and information to me.

He uses a variety of techniques for processing one’s issue and he combines the Tarot deck to help further clarify (which I find simply to be, the creme de la creme)! One of the best parts: you can do it all over the phone (in your comfy chair and your comfy clothes)!

From now until the Spring Equinox, if you say that Anita Bondi Designs sent you, you get 20 extra minutes for FREE.

Don’t wait!

Spread the word.

toomanyhatsAre too many hats the same as too many cooks?

You know the saying, “Too many cooks spoil the soup.”  Do too many hats ruin the artist?

I am being taken under by my own tag line:

making a living as an artist requires many hats!

Maybe in your own life you are in this same dilemma:

you love all of the things that you are engaged in and yet, on most days, end up feeling scattered, semi-focused, and out of balance.

OK, even if you don’t feel that way, just humor me and hang in there with me.

I hate to admit it, but I am getting older and do not actually multi-task that well anymore. (ps. I don’t like the research I am reading about this as an alternative medicine practitioner so stayed tuned for more on this topic.)

While years ago I thrived on a well stocked “to do” list, a jam-packed daily schedule, non-stop talking, and a gigantic resume’, today I am happiest with quiet moments and lots of space.

So, back to the hat thing.

I am being suffocated by all the hats. They are pressing down on me with the weight of Mt. Everest and the hat brims are covering my eyes so that the path is becoming obscured. My path. My passion. My purpose.

I am streamlining.

The hats are coming off! Amen.

Now, off I go to find out what my hair looks like after all of this time. I hate hat head 😉

Yes, we are still here and since I am still here it is time to do the new work of my life.

My message: Balance

My mission: To bring balance first to myself and then to “my world”

My mantra: (thank you to Allyson for asking me to make a jewelry piece with these words) First Breathe. Then Balance.

The sun came up today in my little corner of the world as I ushered in the Light with my partner and my sister and singing bowls and silence.

This poem was then offered to me by a dear friend along with a sweet conversation about a new way of taking care of ourselves.

Dear Friends, May we hold our tender hearts with care this holy season. Love to all, Anita

I said: what about my eyes?
God said: Keep them on the road.wellspring peace sign
I said: what about my passion?
God said: Keep it burning.
I said: what about my heart?
God said: Tell me what you hold inside it?
I said: pain and sorrow?
He said: ..stay with it.
The wound is the place where the Light enters you.

I am borrowing this title from my friend and financial advisor, Erin Baehr. Her post this week is spot on. She nailed it. Instead of repeating her awesome words, I will just encourage you to click on this link and read what she has to say about gratitude, the state of the world, and what we can do about it.
Thanks Erin!
You rock.
Now, to the rest of us: let’s start this week by “thanks living”
I am living into the gratitude of having people special order my jewelry creations!
