Self-development

I’m really good at self-care and here’s what I’ve learned about it

April 25, 2018

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  I am really good at self-care. It has been and is the work of my lifetime. Here’s what I have learned: Self-care has many levels. There is surface self-care and there is deep self-care. We have our own versions of all the levels. For me, a hot bath is surface. A movement session where I burst into tears and crack somewhere is deep. I …

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 …

Diaries of a retreat – Part 1/3

November 8, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  I decided to do a diary of a retreat I went on because I want to share what a retreat can be like (this particular one and my particular experience) in the hopes that I will inspire you to go on one, or at least to consider the value of investing in time away just for you.  This is my experience of the fourth …

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 …

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 …

The sisterhood, coffee talk and the depth of the feminine…

January 31, 2017

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  Every once in a while, my brain wants to vomit out my thoughts in a messy but heartfelt way. Trigger finger, really. Editing be damned! Re-reading tossed aside! Grammar begone!  (Actually, you got me on that one because I can’t have any grammatical mistakes, I just CAN’T!) So, here goes. The sisterhood, coffee talk and the depth of the feminine (should we choose to …
