Loving your body

WHAT IF. What If. What if. what if. what if. what if…

May 29, 2018

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  I look around and I see so much of our strength. Our wisdom. Our fucking gigantic hearts and our deep deep wisdom that instinctively is drawn to heal and love. Our beauty…oh my, so much beauty. Our warrior courage. Our magnetic sensuality and our naughty, mysterious, breathtaking, joyful sexuality. And over that, I see the veil. The veil of self-doubt. Comparison. Overwhelm. Bitterness. Guilt. …

This is how Christmas makes my body feel

December 15, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  So, where to begin… Christmas! Holidays! Christmas. Holidays. Sigh. Every year, I forget how mental the holidays can be. Everyone is sick or just getting sick or just getting over being sick. People are dropping like flies and plans get cancelled at every corner. Everyone is tired from a year of going and pushing and doing. Then there are presents to buy (or make….yuck), …

October 11, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  This article is for both people who have been following my blog for many years and maybe have taken classes with me in the past. It is also for new friends who have entered this journey with me later on. I want to talk about the type of movement I used to teach and what I teach now. My hope is that I will …

Your erotic body

June 13, 2017

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 …

DON’T SHUT ME DOWN! she shouted

May 23, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  This was what my body shouted at me. DON’T SHUT ME DOWN! Really. I could hear her. Have you ever had your body shout at you? Tell him! Say it! I want that. I don’t want to. I don’t like this place. Get me out of here. Just. love. me. I don’t like him/her. I don’t like this. Let’s go. Don’t do it. Say …

The warrior who fights for everyone else but herself

January 5, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  (I can’t believe that I had actually forgotten about Xena, Warrior Princess for a few years. Never again!!) Do you recognize yourself in this? The warrior who fights for everyone else but herself? We rage at our schools, our daycares and our camps to demand better treatment, better food, better playgrounds, better resources for our kids. We join petitions and send emails to complain …

What’s hiding in your body?

December 1, 2016

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  One of the really big changes I’ve made over the last five years is to feel. I mean, FEEL. Really feel. Feel it all. The good, the bad and the ugly. And from where I am right now, I can look back and see how much I wasn’t feeling before. I can see the rage that I shoved aside because, frankly, I thought it …

An “a-ha” moment and why the body is IT

May 24, 2016

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin    I’ve been talking a lot about my upcoming full-day Juicy Woman Revolution retreat happening on Saturday, July 16th in Toronto, Ontario. My two big goals for you if you attend is that you have a mind-blowing experience and that you leave with tools to continue to feel that way in your day-to-day life. Registration opens in June. I’m freaking excited and honoured and thrilled and can’t wait. …

Here’s what happens in my basement…

March 1, 2016

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedinSometimes it’s during the day. Usually it’s at night. And I do it when I need to. Needing to feels like there’s something in my body that needs to be expressed. Allowed. Just felt. I can tell when I need to because I feel this hard, stuck, heavy feeling in my body. And I know it is something shouting “Hey! I’m here! Can you hear me? Listen to …
