MFP is “My Favorite Place” on this planet.  Only in my dreams did I think I could find 75 people that enjoyed improvising as much as I did…all in one room?!

Before starting this program, I had never performed music, never jammed with anyone, and certainly never sang! I had some piano lessons from the ages of 7 to 13… off and on, and continued to be more attracted to improvising than reading music for the next 40 years! During my 20’s I had a frustrating dancing career due to yoyoing body weight.  I then created a system of weight management in Do It! Or DIET®, my workbook, and soon to be published, “Indulgence you can count on”.  Info at count2indulge.com

30 years later, at my first MfP workshop, the addiction started!  A highly contagious addiction too! I traveled four times a year from Hollywood, Florida to get my fix!  It changed my life entirely.  Fear became my friend! For several months i got to play keyboards at Unity on the Bay in Miami, in a contemplative service with chanting, music and meditation.  I even got to improvise during the meditation also… What a dream!

I am currently working on a workshop called “Feast for My Soul”… A Buffet for the Mind, Body and Spirit that Satisfies your Every Hunger.  I assist the participants by providing simple jingles and fun tools to achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle.  “Count2Indulge” removes the fear, boredom and yo-yo effects that are normally associated with typical dieting programs today.  Education Not Deprivation is my alternative to dieting, along with creative expression, meditation tools, and acknowledging mind and speech patterns.  We have lots of fun while learning a typically difficult goal…weight management!   I also have monthly mfp jams at my new home in Flagler Beach, Florida where I am creating an improv open mic for all expressive arts at Kool Beenz Cafe in Flagler Beach, Fl.  Finding my voice in my music and body was the best medicine for this once very timid and frustrated lady!
