I can’t teach you…or me…this

January 10, 2018

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  When I started this business, I had this idea, perhaps unspoken but there, that I would teach a way to reach perfection. I would teach my way to reach perfection. Learn what I know, do it my way and the result of your hard work will be that you will be forever perfect! Sheltered from the storms. Fitter. Thinner. More beautiful. Happier. Cleaner. With glowy …

November 12, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  This is the final installation in my “Diary of a retreat” writings. Part 1 is here and Part 2 is here. Day 3 The theme for me this retreat has been belonging.

Diaries of a retreat – Part 2/3

November 9, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  This is the second installation of my “Diary of a retreat” writings. You can read the first one here. Day 2 I don’t like this retreat. I am not feeling at home or good; I’m feeling uncomfortable. We had an experience with horses with the amazing Jen Zoe this morning and I had an uncomfortable realization. I thought the horse I had connected with …

I aM sTuCk

October 21, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  I am going through a stuck period right now. And this is what I usually do when I’m stuck. Watch movies in the middle of the day. While eating a hamburger and chips. Get angry at the teacher because I was late for drop-off and because IT’S HER FAULT I’M STUCK! Rage at everyone. My kids. My husband. Strangers. Above teacher. And then smother …

How to kill a desire

October 3, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  Yes, I’m into desires these days. If you didn’t read my post called “Audacious, scary, body buzzing, delicious desire”, you can read it here. What are desires? For me, they are simply things, feelings and experiences that I want. And, for me, they have a deepness to them that simply “wanting” doesn’t seem to have. A simple want comes from my mouth and a …

Audacious, scary, body buzzing, delicious desire

September 22, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  Desire – Part 1 Desires are weird and wonderful. They are basically what you want but when you change the word want for the word desire it sounds so much more….ballsy. Daring. Delicious. Illegal. Naughty. Desire seems like a slap to everything I grew up with. It’s the opposite of almost every message I received. I think that desire would have been a dangerous …

Truth telling. Deep breath. Open mouth.

September 13, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin    Telling the truth. It’s big. It’s hard. It takes remarkable courage. (Not to say something like “I don’t like peaches” but to say something like “Yesterday, I broke down in tears because I realized that I’m not really happy.”) I believe telling the truth can save our lives. (Along with Wonder Woman.) I had to start telling the truth to myself. To admit …

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  What happened to you when you read those 3 words? Your. Erotic. Body. Did you feel intrigued? Curious? Jealous? Did you roll your eyes and think, fer kerist sake’s, Sophie, enough with the freakin’ body stuff… Did you feel your body shut down? Resist? Turn off? Did you feel yearning? Sadness? Deep whispering desire? Did your mind whirl with judgements or self-critical thoughts? (Perhaps …

Your body. Pleasured.

May 29, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  Your body. Pleasured. Interested? I have been on a deep relationship with my body for about the last 6 years. (But who’s kidding who – we have all been on a journey with our bodies our whole lives.) My intention in giving my body attention morphed from being able to accept and be happy with my body, to actually loving my body, to feeling free …

Victim much? I’ll share mine if you share yours…

May 8, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  As I spend more time on this internal journey to get back to myself, I start to see where my shadows are. The hard crusty parts I need to scrape away. The darkness that I need to shed light on. The twists and turns that I need to follow to get to the truth…the sometimes very hard to admit truth. Shining light on the …
