ABOUT

I want you to know that I think you are perfect, just the way you are. I think that we can fight so hard to be more than. I think we are enough. I think that as soon as we allow ourselves to be just as we are we soften, that soft also means expansive, that taking up space is a good thing.  You have a body that is your sacred ground, and it’s time we get more comfortable there. Your imperfections, scars and injuries aren’t something to hide away, they are to be brought into the conversation, and in fact I would say they are the conversation.  They are life speaking to you in its oldest language though our most intimate companion, our bodies. It’s time to reclaim the body, reclaim our sacred ground, to move it, hold it, dance with it, listen to it and  grieve with it, maybe even allow ourselves to LOVE it. I think it’s time to end the war, to set down our sharp knives and begin planting seeds, to give our energy to what makes us sing because there will be no better time and you will not be more ready. I want you to know that I think you are worth it. You are worth your attention. You are worth the ride, and the ride is just waiting in anticipation for you to get over the ‘why you’re not good enough’ and hop on already.

It starts with a question, what are you longing to know? And who? Ask away. The practice is to remember how to listen. Bring your ear close to the ground and quiet yourself. Something is moving, as it always is. We can find a million......

A few thoughts on eating disorders, I have been sitting on this piece for a month or so, it’s imperfectly perfect and personally a vulnerable subject to share. Mirrors: these days I try not to make a big deal out of how I’m looking. I......

I find myself still after all this time clinging to the idea that one day I will have this life thing figured out, I will reach the pinnacle of my own personal mountain, sit down, and enjoy the view. Doesn’t that sound nice! I’m at......

I am going through a process here, a PRO-CESS. I am in the jaws of a lion and she is taking no shit. I get it- kind of, the ferocity of her dedication. And I feel helpless, like a person drowning but loving the water.......

Do you care deeply about other people? Do you sometimes invest your heart in places it doesn’t belong or create unbalanced relationships where you only exist to be the giver? You are not alone. I’m interested in cultivating right relationship with giving, and looking honestly at......

Yesterday it happened, something I have heard about and have witnessed but have never personally experienced. I cried on my yoga mat. As I stepped up to practice that day, I found my feet solid under my hips, and began. I knew I was coming......

I sat down,  put my hands over the pain in my chest with a furrowed brow and eyes shut tight willing myself to breathe, praying for my heart to stay soft. “you’re so emotional,” he said, not knowing how triggering that was to the part......
