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 ...

Setting Seasonal Intents

It's that time again - the time of year when light and dark are balanced - for a moment at least. For me this means it is time to review my past Seasonal (90-Day) Intents and set new ones for the next season - Spring! It's kind of a 90-Day To-Do list - except that once it's ...

Learning to Fail Magnificently

Today, I want to introduce a concept that is so big, so awesome, so potentially transformational, that I’m practically paralyzed just thinking about it. You see, I don't have the words to convey such an important concept. No matter how I turn it around in my mind, my words fall short. I fail. Yet, here I am, about ...

Noticings on Flow (and the lack thereof)

Flow. That magical quality that allows everything to happen with such ease and grace when present. That magical quality that leads to all sorts of unpleasantness and potential embarrassment when absent. Flow. Something I want to experience more of in my life. And, something I've been intentionally focusing on for the past 2 weeks as part of my ...
