Hi! I'm Connie from the East Mountains of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
I’m looking for ways to create new habits & support that will help release the excess weight taken on after my husbands’ death. My goal is to accomplish this with joy & fun, visualizing a clear picture of what I want to create & be … at the same time, LOVING who I am right now! And so it is!

Personal Information:
Born Brooklyn, NY, 1st gen Italian. FIT Grad.'74 -left NY. Designer for SF importers 20+yrs in Orient 4-6x yr.

Last Ada Mabel, plus szs local manufacturer – fav job! Unusual & ethnic fabrics –great fun!

To E. Mountains of ABQ in '98 w late husband, John E. Peterson. Passed '05 & started my uphill battle w weight (solace in sweets!)

?Return to SF - No-time was done. LOVE the open space, quiet & skyscapes of NM (an adjustment after 24 yrs in NY & 24 yrs in SF!

I'm a San Franciscan at heart – lived majority of my adult life there & it influenced who I am & all I believe in.

At SF Integral Yoga learned difference between ‘religion’ (I shunned) & ‘spirituality’ (strongly embraced) A firm believer in Truth is ONE, & Paths are Many!

Now study with E. Indian teacher re: using sound to raise vibration. Ties in with my LOVE of Kirtan (Sanskrit) chanting & meditation. Om Shanti.

Other Information:
As a means of maintaining my sanity while in the garment industry, I learned to create in glass (Creating with Light!), starting in 1980.

I use stained & fused glass, mosaic, and sandblasting techniques to create windows, altar pieces, and jewelry. I have a portfolio website at and hope to add a ‘commercial online store’ aspect in the near future.

Looking forward to adding SparkPeople to my life!

Namaste to All!

    Well, copy-and-paste this! -- " What a loving, supportive, amazing note to me on the blog, Connie." This time the understanding of and empathy regarding my RWG (lol -- rapid weight gain).

    I tracked every blasted morsel and supplement that's a good start. Breath by breath, step by step, day by day...back to optimal wellness. Yes! emoticon

    What a loving, supportive, amazing note to me on the blog, Connie. And the friend I'm visiting in Lakewood, OH is none other than our dear Madhuri/Tricia!!! I think we're going to have a wonderful time.

    I wish you and I could spend some quality time in the foreseeable future. That goddess gathering sounded nothing short of FABULOUS!!!

    And yes, may it be so:
    "...may they offer you a paid position that will meet all your financial needs, as well as offer fulfillment through service to community." That sounds exactly right.

    Loving you,

    Hey Connie! How are you doing??

    I'm in love with chanting as well; I learned what I practice from cd's from Maha and a book: mantra yoga and primal sound by david frawley.
