Are Acting And Entertainment Therapeutic? Find Out Here!

Like my previous interviews of Hayley and Dr. Vala, I met Sharon Taylor at Champions Martial Arts Academy over twenty years ago and watched her bloom into a local celebrity staring in Bad Blood and Big Sky, among many other films.

The reason why I wanted to feature Sharon here is because of her views on mental health and how she believes acting and good quality entertainment can be a part of helping heal mental health issues.

I am honored to interview her and to share her thoughts with you. …


You were young once, and it was enough for you, right? You have no desire to go back. You just want to reap the rewards of being both healthy and experienced!

Of course, you did not anticipate that becoming older was going to be more than developing a wiser outlook on life.

You may not have known that living longer comes with its difficulties, like developing scars and painful memories, not to mention the build up of toxins in the body, and increased wear and tears. You didn’t think your body would feel heavy dragging your tired soul around.

I have known Hayley Winter for over two years because her son, Ethan, has been attending the martial arts classes I coach at Champions Martial Arts Academy.

Sara Namazi gets poetic about your immune system (Part 1)

I met Sara Namazi through a mutual friend and was immediately inspired by her poetic demeanor.

She struck me as a bohemian, but I very soon learned that she has a background in Nutrition, homeopathy, optician training, and reiki. Sara’s old soul pulled me towards the realization of how lost I can get in a modern lifestyle of conveniences and guilty pleasures.

We have a common interest in the health of the mind, body, and spirit. When I asked her if I could interview her for my audience, she accepted with kindness. …


Mother’s Day is approaching.

My mom is simple on the outside, and complicated on the inside.

I always think if my mother and I were the same age, our paths would not cross because we are so different.

But, there is a lesson to be learned from family members who are different from us. After all, we choose our friends, but not our family. We are stuck with them, so let’s make the best of the journey.

I admire her independence and her resilience to some major forced changes she encountered. …
