Public Service Message regarding CoVid 19- How to triage your own symptoms

Please use the flow chart below to determine whether or not you should go to the hospital. Download the Chart here: !Influenza _ Coronavirus Flow Chart BPC


  1. One of the big concerns right now is the potential for overwhelming hospitals, doctors, and emergency personnel.
  2. There is no treatment for mild cases. Severe cases require hospitalization, and respirators. If you have a mild case, stay in, drink lots of fluids. See: CDC Website
  3. You can determine for yourself what your symptoms are, and reduce the potential to overwhelm hospitals and at doctors’ offices.

Please share this graphic; in working together, we can help the people with most severe cases get the necessary treatment.

This chart was created by Dr. Jeff O’Boyle, a Direct Primary Care Physician. His website is

“Direct Primary Care” means the doctor works directly for the patient.

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a model of health care gaining popularity around the country. Some people call it “blue collar concierge care” because it’s like a concierge practice for the working person, meaning affordable!  By cutting out the middleman (the insurance company), doctors can focus directly on the patient, improving access to care and keeping costs down.

For a low, predictable monthly fee per individual- about the same as a cell phone or cable plan, you will have access to YOUR personal doctor for all primary care needs, including virtually unlimited office visits.  There are no additional copays, deductibles, or surprise hidden charges for visits. With a smaller patient base, Beyond Primary Care practices routinely offers same day access, minimal waits, and longer appointments for your annual check-up or urgent care needs. When medically appropriate, many issues can be managed over the phone or via messaging, without an office visit – saving time and money. Phone calls are forwarded directly to your own physician after hours.


A celebration of the Divine Mother in all Her forms.

Click here to download a free booklet to follow along with the Fire Ceremonies, and the prayers to the Divine Mother.

Each morning for Navratri (March 25-April 2), I will be doing a fire ceremony to honor the Divine Mother. If you would like to be specifically included in the ceremony and the blessing, please email your full name and location, adding a picture optional. I’ll be posting a video of each ceremony, so you may join in the energy at your convenience.

Nights of March 24 – April 1, 2020 (Days: March 25- April 2)

Navratri means “Nine Nights” This is a time when the Divine Mother makes Herself easily available and accessible to all of her children. When the children seek the Mother, she rewards and blesses them.

Days 1-3 focus on purification, cleaning out, letting go of what no longer works in your life. For the first three nights, the focus is on the aspect of the Goddess responsible for Destruction and Restoration (Kali). This is a time of purification, a time to let go of all that is not “on purpose” for your life. This relates to “cleaning out your closets”, to make way for new things.

Days 4-6 focus on preparing to receive blessings: putting your mind, your tools, your house in order. The second set of three nights are devoted to the aspect of the Divine Mother who cooperates with us to learn what we need to learn, acquire what we need to acquire, and prepare in every possible way to live a Truly Fulfilled Life (Lakshmi). This is the time of preservation and taking care of things, or “putting your house in order”.

Days 7-9 focus on gratitude and receiving the Divine Mother’s blessings. Now is the time to ask for the Divine Mother’s Blessing. The work of the first six days now grants you a boon from the Divine Mother. She rewards and blesses Her children who look to Her. The final three nights are devoted to the aspect of the Divine Mother who embodies Divine Wisdom, and all that is pure and sublime in Nature (Saraswati).  To realize Her, one must go beyond the pleasures of the senses and rejoice in the serenity of the spirit, to transcend the cravings of the flesh and to reside in the power of the mind of pure wisdom.  

At Evenstar’s Chalice, each day, (following each of the nine nights), an alter will be available for your prayers and offerings, and there will be special events offered to celebrate the Mother. See: or

Journey of the Heart

Begin 2020 with the heart –because it’s through the heart that we are able to connect with a deeper part of ourselves. Through the heart we connect with our deepest wishes-wants-desires, those things that are intangible and abstract, yet give us the most fulfillment, the most filled-fullness.

It is in the heart where dualities are unified and limits are expanded. It is through the heart that we solve puzzles with disparate pieces. Being aware of the heart helps us make better choices. Opening the heart brings us more love and harmony.

The cycle begins with the heart to establish these qualities: unity, connection, heart-felt intuition, love, and harmony.

Why do you want to connect with your heart?

Do you hear it calling you?

Begin a conscious relationship with yourself, through the heart.
Take the step. Begin.
Each day, connect with your heart, invite your heart-energy to inform your choices.
Open to its direction.

Allow it to be simple; allow the opening to be at a pace that is comfortable for you. Too much, and fear may step in, too little and you may not notice. There are many who need to heal their relationship with their heart; it takes time to open, listen, and trust. Be gentle with yourself.

There is so much Joy within you waiting to come forth!
Can you feel your heart almost giddy with delight and anticipation—it knows what joy it wants to bring you!

Journey of the Heart is a seven-week class being held at Evenstar’s  Chalice, 36 N. Huron St.,Ypsilanti, MI 48197 beginning January 15, 2020.

Connect with your heart through multiple prisms of expression shaped by daily reflections which lead you on your path of highest purpose. Find your mission, your purpose, why you are here in this now.

This 7-week class is being offered at a special soft launch price of $35. Materials needed for the class include a journal or sketchbook, crayons, colored pencils, paints or pen and ink, and internet access.
