A Conversation with Ellen Goodman Part 2

Here’s Part 2 of my chat with Pullitzer prize-winning columnist Ellen Goodman. (Read Part 1 here). TARA: Let’s talk more about social change because you’ve both written about it and taken time to study it. I’m curious about what your understanding is of how social change happens and how that is informing how you have […]

A Conversation with Ellen Goodman

Well, she is one of the most widely read US women columnists in the United States. She has the ability to sum up a whole movement, a whole era, or a complex reality with a single, perfect line. Recently I had the honor of sitting down with remarkable woman Ellen Goodman. You can listen to […]

My Sugar Story

I’m a woman who can’t handle sugar. You know how an alcoholic just can’t stop drinking? That’s me with sugar. For me, there has never been chewing one piece of gum. There is only chewing through the whole pack in an afternoon — or an hour. For me, there never has been such a thing […]

Body Dissatisfaction

I think it’s fair to say that, collectively, we women are officially in trouble when it comes to our relationship to our bodies: 70% of normal-weight women report wanting to be thinner. A UK study found that 91% of women are dissatisfied with their hips and thighs. And perhaps even more troubling, 54% of girls […]

10 Things I’m Glad I Did For My Body in 2010 (And That You Might Want to Try in 2011)

1. Gave up artificial sweeteners (Splenda, Equal, Sweet & Low, etc.) and switched to Stevia. Now that Stevia is available, I see no reason any of us should be taking risks with the artificial stuff. Put some packets in your purse.   2. Switched to decaf. I still love my coffee ritual, but now I […]

Prana, Location Independence, and Getting High
