  What are your deep desires? One of things we talk about at the JWR retreat is DESIRE. As in, what do you really want?

What I struggled with in learning how to prioritize myself

June 29, 2016

    When I first felt the angry, desperate and sad yearnings inside me for more nourishment, I was in a dark place. At home with a new baby. Spending my days preparing food, cleaning up food, cleaning up the house, washing dishes, preparing more food, cleaning up more food, changing diapers, doing laundry, putting the babe down for a nap, cleaning up the kitchen, …

Here’s what happens in my basement…

March 1, 2016

Sometimes 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 …
