FunZen Bakery Soul Treats


Welcome to our website that has become a museum to share the evolution of FunZen. When my daughter, Grace, (at 6 years old) described her happy-calm place as funzen, (a kawaii* word) it was truly a life-changing moment.  In Japanese, the word kawaii describes something as “cute,” “adorable,” “lovable,” “pretty,” or ~dare to be darling. Kawaii is much more than just cute: it’s a huge part of Japanese culture and can be found in anime, fashion, art, music, lifestyle and more! Inspired from Yume Twins Kawaii Culture Blog

We like to say stressed is (spiritual) desserts spelled backward.

  We appreciate you visiting the FunZen Bakery. Grateful to serve your spirit a little food for thought, virtual sips of tea, spiritual espresso tips, and soul treats.

It’s a treat if it makes us smile. = )

Open your Heart. Empty your Cup: aka Leave your ego at the door.  When our cup is empty we recapture the child-like ability to learn mindfully with a beginner’s mind. I teach the inner mechanics to reach excellence by gaining mastery of the fundamentals. In Japanese, the word for black belt is “Shodan,” in translation, this means “first step” and embodies the zen mind, beginner’s mind of a lifelong learner.  Now, I have learned enough to really begin learning.  Training to shift from a worrier to a warrior, when we’re under pressure, is becoming part of the solution to earn a black belt for your soul.  Never stop learning. Simply put, ‘It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.” John Wooden

 In the words of Audrey Hepburn, “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”


Now, consider what felt impossible is now possible when you carry this sparkling gem; The Miracle Diamond’s  Inner Dancer Mantra: “When the body lifts, the mind shifts, and the spirit soars.”


One Move with Many Blessings!

Hope you enJOY our short FunZen girls tutorial video (below) on how to activate the Miracle Diamond of Mindfulness. We are introducing the spiritual element of balance = love. Love embraces and uplifts us to stay on point with purpose, passion and inner peace.

Our Mindful Posture Tool only takes one move to effortlessly take us from Slouch to Stretch!

1)  Lifting up takes you there (inner ribcage lift).

2) Lacing up keeps you there (engage core).

Mindful body-awareness keeps us anchored in the present moment. The instant we catch ourselves slouching (we all do) we can lift right under the breastbone (or wishbone) and magically shift from slouch to stretched, centered, strong and stress-free like a deeply rooted tree.

Accept and acknowledge your own brillianceStop waiting for others to tell you how great you are! Believe it for yourself and about yourself.” – Iyanla Vanzant

Unleashing your inner badass (ballerina) is unapologetically accepting and loving your lower body to feel safe, secure, stable and strong. It is exercising the courage to be brilliant, {resilient) beautiful, and bold.
