Karma Compass is an exploration of how we can stay well, heal one another and ourselves, and find repositories of strength and love in one another. Most everything you will find on this blog is something I’ve tried firsthand, or someone who I know and love has, and  which has proven successful in healing some malady of the body, mind or spirit.
