Montreal muscial artist and femme-orchestre, Samuele, is working on her second album right now! I can’t wait to hear it.

Originally posted on Samuele:

Ça fait un an que je promène mes “nouvelles” chansons en femme-orchestre de salons en petites scènes et je sens que le temps est venu d’immortaliser ça. Ça fait un plus de deux ans que mon premier EP a vu la lumière et j’ai l’impression d’avoir eu mille vies depuis.  J’ai appris beaucoup sur le métier en faisant le EP, mais un jour j’en ai eu marre du cirque, de ramer, de demander à des musicien de se déplacer pour 5$. J’en ai eu marre de passer plus de temps à vendre mon projet qu’à y travailler. Un jour, il y a eu CHOCHOTTES et j’ai retrouvé le plaisir de jouer pour jouer et s’en a été fini du projet solo.
Mais on ne quitte pas la chanson comme ça. Ça nous habite ces choses-là. Loin de la pression de performer et de vendre, les chansons ont recommencées à  me…

I hate to say it… June 3, 2013

Filed under: Connection,Creation,Reflection — SarahBeeWell @ 07:03

But my focus has changed, yet again.

My Essentials of Existence have come squarely up against the Status Quo, and I must say,

without a shred of doubt,

It is Essential to my Existence that I Question the Status Quo.

Simplicity, meditation, wellness, personal development are all at the core of my being, and rarely do I feel these part of myself reflected back in the mainstream media or popular culture.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t like loud music, I have a hard time being in a room with more than 4 people, I don’t trust the advice of doctors who don’t even know about food, and I really have no space in my reality for people who believe that science is the 100% undeniable truth.  I just don’t believe any of it.

The good thing is that you’re also free to believe what you want, and just know that so long as your beliefs aren’t hurting others, I still love you and respect your beliefs.  Heck, even if your beliefs hurt others, I still freakin’ love you … even though I may not know how to express that, except in this very post.

If you’re interested in the fringe, the alternatives, the Love that connects us All – then please I welcome you to join in following my musings at the page I share with my beloved, Renaud & Sarah – Questioning the Status Quo.

And while I’m on the subject of my writing,

Please feel free to come join me at my Essentials of Existence facebook page for the journey of fasting and detoxing as an experiment in my own Habitual Self Wellness.

From June 1 – 10, 2013

I am still very much in love with the Esentials of Existence – in fact, my first book is based on almost exactly the same principle as what urged me to begin the essentials of Existence.  So, you’ll see me again under this umbrella, but for now, the energies that I share will be gathered on the above two facebook pages.

I look forward to sharing more easy self-wellness tips and tricks with you, but right now is the time for me to focus on today … tomorrow will still come.

Keep your eyes peeled for Valentine’s Day, 2014 ~ When the Habitual Self Wellness book will be ready for devouring….

Be Well!

We’re at the point in the Self Relaxation Series where we finally address that tight low back.  It’s a hard place to stretch if there is limited flexibility in any part of the body.  I’ve heard that yoga does wonders for many people’s low backs, but for myself, my body did not respond to the prescribed poses.  I usually ended up in more pain the next day than was tolerable.  Which is why I came up with this easy technique to loosen up the low back!

Please feel free to question or comment on the following YouTube video – I’m happy to help in any way that I can.

Be Well!
