Go Fund Me

Hello Everyone, we are raising funds for Mary Martha’s funeral. Many of you met her as your teacher of healthy cooking, Yoga, Qigong, and Tai Chi and know that she tried to make the world a more positive and supportive place wherever and whenever she could. She passed away peacefully at home on October 11 from kidney failure, with her loving husband Pleas McNeel III beside her. Pleas, and his family are asking for donations to help cover the cost of the funeral and related expenses. Thank you kindly.

Are we owners or trustees of this life experience?

Considering all the current news about the recent migration of Central Americans seeking refuge from violence…The violence against children in Israel and the continuing news of violence in the Middle East..I am confronted with the opinions of people who ask How can we deal with all of these refugees and the bad news from all over the world ? It brings to mind what is our role in this earthly life.. Are we owners of this place we inhabit temporarily or trustees? If we are trustees we are then asked to behave from compassion…


Thoughts on Self and the Season

BWportraitWelcome to Gentle Wellness. . . it’s the season for coming together in body, mind and spirit to celebrate the end of the old year and the beginning of the new one. Part of our celebration is taking impeccable care of ourselves so that we have the energy and joy to serve others. Care of our bodies and minds is more than a gift to ourselves – it is a gift to those we love. Please know that my very best wishes go out to you this holiday season, and I hope that I can be a gentle part of your well-being in the new year.
