This is a repost from something I wrote last year. At the time, I was poised to release my book into the world, and writing this helped me to name what I was feeling. A year later, I find myself returning to my own words in a different context, but with a similar intention: To name what I am feeling in the wake of this […]

Stay On The Mat

I had no business being up at 3:00 a.m. But I just couldn’t seem to stop myself. I had picked up Glennon Doyle Melton’s new book Love Warrior, and now I couldn’t put it down. More than just being thoroughly engaged or committed to see it through, my experience was of being found. Truthfully, it was more like being found out. As in busted. I was […]

The Right Hook of Physics

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about this amazing experience I had where I literally drew my intention with my whole body. My intention?  To be more luminous. I shared how I felt luminous as I embodied that word in the circle of women gathered that night. It was powerful and mysterious. Like magic. I felt like a High Priestess conjuring something from the depths […]

A Living Prayer: Embodying Intention

The woman’s word was “WORTH“, and I watched as she went first, embodying each letter of that word — her intention – with her body, spelling it first forwards and then retracing it backwards. I was her partner. My job was to witness her. It was an exercise, really — something we were asked to do as part of a ritual for a new moon Qoya […]

Did you know I’ve got a new podcast out? Yup! It’s called An Unscripted Woman and it’s available right now via SoundCloud – which means you can subscribe to it through your podcast app on your smart phone. Easy peasy. I started this as an experiment back in July this summer, and the response was really positive, so I’m back for more this September, as […]

Happy New Year

We were quite a sight that day, arriving at my youngest son’s elementary school for the annual “watermelon welcome”. A few people, seeing us hobble up the front walk, asked us if we had been in a car accident. No, we assured them, we’d just had a bit of a rough summer. My husband, having crushed his arm in an accident back in early July, had […]

Help: Given & Received

Help

July was a bit of a train wreck for our family. At first I thought it was just me, and I did my thing of quietly hunkering down to power through a rough patch that seemed to appear out of nowhere. But the more I talked about it with my friends, family and clients, the more I discovered I wasn’t alone in my experience of this […]
