The Story of the Floating Head

Note: the following story spent quite some time as my homepage. It now has a new home... here! Enjoy. :) There once was a creative, kooky, brilliant mind stuck in a floating head. The mind was filled with ideas, plans, and wise, loving thoughts. Unfortunately, without a body, it had no way to implement or to bring ...

How Lighting a Red Candle Changed My Life

Over the past years, my concept of what self-care means (for myself) has changed drastically. This is good. This is to be expected when the basis for my work is about evolution and allowing/expecting things to change. The very fact that what self-care means has changed so much indicates to me that I am on my ...

A Story of Hope

I've only recently began to believe in hope. Prior to last spring, I didn't even know that I didn't believe in hope. I had no idea how meaningless hope was to me. Yes, there were clues. For instance, two years ago, I was teaching a How to Thrive During the Holidays workshop and we were practicing connecting to ...

An Enchanted Day

I never wanted to get married, it's true. And yet, I've always been fascinated with wedding photos. While I don't seek them out, if there happens to be a wedding magazine readily available, I will pick it up, thumb through it, and either exclaim over or (more often) mock the gowns, the table settings, and whatever decorations may ...

The Thing I Never Thought I’d Do

AN OPEN LETTER TO YOU: Hello You, I have some things to tell you. Things that are personal in nature. Things that, while personal, are directly affecting how I am showing up in my business right now. Let's go. I'm getting married on September 29th. Shocking. To me at least. I never wanted to get married. I was never that girl ...

The Wonder of Wandering

Yesterday was the 4th class of my Listening and Shiva Nata series. It has been even more fun than I’d anticipated. The combination of listening, working with the senses, and Shiva Nata is like a freaking wonder drug! Anyway, yesterday we were playing with the concept of Body Radar – that innate ability of our bodies ...

Learning to Tolerate Comfort

I was reading Kylie’s blog the other day. This particular line caught my eye: “Sink into comfort. See how much you can stand.” I was nodding as I was reading thinking, “Wow. that's so true and that's something I want to write about. “ Then I re-read it and realized it actually said 'Sink into DIScomfort..." Giggling at my ...

The Importance of a Really Good Wallow

I've noticed a theme with a few of my clients lately – a theme of being afraid to really feel whatever is going on for them. The actual feelings and the situations that are bringing them up are widely varied. The commonality lies in the fear that if they truly feel the feelings, they will be overwhelmed ...

A Most Fascinating Question

A friend recently stumped me with what is possibly the most fascinating question in the world: “What captivated you when you were 9? What was it that you spent every spare minute of your unstructured time doing?” The concept behind the question is that that thing we did with our free time when we were approximately 9 ...

My Headache Story

Note: I initially shared a version of following post on my About Page. I removed it a short while later but am now feeling called to share it here. My ongoing struggle with headaches is still really difficult for me to talk about. I hope that through sharing a bit of my story here, those ...
