Good balance creates space for healthy relationships.


The four areas must find equal nurturing:

Body - Physical

Mind - Intellectual

Heart - Emotional

Soul - Spiritual


Earth, Fire, Water, and Air

Words and music by Richard Hill


Body grows in earth and space

Heart will always flame embrace

Mind like waters filled with life

Soul on restless wind will fly

 From the dust of earth we’re born

And return when work is done

In between we reap and till

Flesh and bone seek hope and will



Passion finds its life in fire

Quick consumes what e’er lies near

Destroyer or Refiner choose

Heart is broken or renewed



Sometimes truth in shadow hides

Making fools of those deemed wise

Sometimes truth in light breaks forth

And fools seem wiser than once thought



The wind will blow, one knows not whence

It freely comes, or freely ends

 So our spirits long for flight

To play, to dream, to love, to life
