At age fifty (now fifty-one), I left the town where I was living (with a dear beloved) and we headed north. Where

However, my integrative, holistic approach to wellness beckons me to broaden my examination of lifestyle practices, to include stress, mental/emotional patterns, and Type A behavior. All of
