Who do you consider your community, your tribe?  Who are the people you choose to surround yourself with?   People who are part of your group by circumstance + proximity… co-workers, teachers, family AND people you  spend your free time with… friends, significant others, workout buddies, etc.   Take a moment to list them out on paper.   Medical science demonstrates how critically important social interactions are to our healthy + longevity.  But, it’s not JUST having people around you, is it?  It’s also the QUALITY of the interactions you have with...

FOUNDATION

Happy New Year!     2019 will be one of setting foundations + bringing things into physical form.  The last few years have been intense.  Clearing, shadow excavating, movement without always seeing results.  We are getting closer to the end of this massive collective cycle we’ve been in… it completes in 2020.  Can you feel it?   The new moon/ solar eclipse this coming Saturday might find us delving into our shadow material yet again and forcing us to really look at it.  My sacred commitment aligns with this collective energy of building structure… it actually started...

unconditional love

Posted on Nov 30, 2018 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on unconditional love

this is different than the love many of us have been taught it feels cold at first.           But, it’s simply the absence of expectation, drama and old storylines. To walk through the world with love, We must love ourselves first, UNCONDITIONALLY What does this mean? Look at all the shadows that are offering themselves up. How do I do this, you ask? See who triggers you… who you are judging… they represent a part of yourself that you haven’t owned. Right now, we’re in a time of deep shadow excavating. When you feel the small mean voices start in your head,...

Sitting in a circle of women this weekend, the big topic of receiving came up.  How important it is to receive and how many of us women feel more comfortable giving than receiving… or have internalized this as the only acceptable way to show up.  The feminine is compassionate, kind, gentle… think Mother Mary or Kwan Yin.  Yes, she is all this AND that is only a tiny piece of her puzzle.   She has many different faces.  She is fierce + courageous + strong + loud + a force to be reckoned with – think Durga or a lioness… DON’T YOU DARE MESS WITH MY CUBS!  She...

trust in your unfolding…

Posted on Nov 6, 2017 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on trust in your unfolding…

Butterfly. Totem. Transformation. Not a sweet totem as one would think. The courage it requires to become the butterfly… total annihilation of self one once was, form one once was… into something new and unexpected. No way of knowing what comes next, believing you are dying, again + again. When it’s just the parts of self that have outgrown their forms… And so much brilliance awaits. The butterfly has to cultivate a ridiculous amount of FAITH.   It is the feminine way, the way of the darkness, of trusting in the unknown, of allowing oneself to be led without knowing where...

honoring our rhythms…

A month ago, I led a retreat.  One of the things we talked about was how we, as women, as humans, are connected to nature & connected to the cosmos, not separate from it (as our modern world would try to convince us of).  Similar to the seasons of nature, the phases of the moon, the orbits of the planets, we too have cycles of up and down, in and out, light and dark.  As I share often, I fight my cycles… make myself wrong for needing/ wanting down time.  Must do more.  Must be productive all the time.  Must constantly be working on my business and what I do in the world.  Must be...
