  1. Babara-How are you? It’s so funny how the universe conspires to bring us back in touch with people we’ve not connected with in a while. My daughter who’s a psychology major at Webster University (I’m still in STL with my family) saw the article abt 25 women bloggers contributing to a website on self-compassion, and there you were. How if your family? Where are you now? My blog,, focuses on self-care and I’ve developed my own 4-session Mindful Stress Reduction class which I started teaching last May.I teach a whole session on self-compassion. If you’d like to get in touch, my e-mail is

    Best Always, Diane
