The DesertLight Journal

​A guide to alternative healing (and related stuff) in the North End of Maricopa County . Also cooking.

The photo above was taken by me out my front door on a brilliant Sunday morning last January.

I've been online since 1995, and built my first website (the first incarnation of the DLJ) in 2001, or thereabouts.

I once specialized in online marketing and SEO, and have since realized there is no substitute for word-of-mouth. This website is an effort to gather some resources for those who wonder what's going on in NorMar and the general metro PHX area. 

We moved to New River from Yuma last year, after my husband retired, and now we live right next door to the grandkids -- no more 200 mile drives! Yay! We are very much hands-on grandparents.

I've been interested in things metaphysical since the early 1980s. Many books and classes later, I became a Reiki master in 1999. I'm still learning!

I no longer do Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, etc. Literally the only social media I bother with anymore is  NextDoor , where I can be found in New River. Best way to connect with me is at my email: [email protected]
