The power and beauty of women

I am not a domesticated animal

January 12, 2016

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  I am not a domesticated animal. I am a wild animal that should not be allowed in nice clean houses. (Good thing I don’t have one of those…) Here’s the line that keeps repeating itself when I am cleaning up some mess on the table. For the fifth time. Grocery shopping. Cleaning toilets. (Actually, that one is a joke because I don’t clean). Doing drop-off …

A story about saying the un-sayable

November 12, 2015

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  As some of you know, I am currently taking a break from my regularly weekly blogs. I needed to slow down on one business aspect as I started to speed up on another aspect, which is the development of an online course. I miss writing! I miss our communication; even though for the most part it’s a one-way conversation, outside of the comments (I …

How my retreat went

October 5, 2015

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedinWell, here I am, back for almost a week from the S-Factor retreat in Miami. I am still adjusting. This is the hard part for me; figuring out how to maintain the feeling that I had when I was away while fulfilling responsibilities to my work, family, children and myself. To keep my insights, discoveries and deep yearnings alive. To remind myself of myself, even …

Bring me your sh*t

July 16, 2015

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedinThat title is so provocative! Mmm….me lovey. There’s a back-story to this title. I’ve been thinking about what I “want” women to bring to my classes. I used to borrow what I had heard in yoga classes and ask students to leave everything at the door. To be in class, free from their daily worries and stresses. But as my experience deepened with the Juicy Woman …

Forget everything else. Who are you… as a WOMAN?

May 22, 2015

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  So, as most of you know, I am really big into women. Being one. Raising one. Having lots of awesome ones in my life. I love the feminine. The more I learn, the more I love. The more I know, the more I adore. I love being a woman! In fact, I think that I may have just realized that I was one. Seriously. …

This still surprises the heck out of me…

April 2, 2015

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedinMy life has changed. Really changed. And it still surprises me every day. Because there was a point when I didn’t believe that anything could change about my life. That I didn’t have any or enough power to change my mind-set, change my day, change my life. But I did. And so can you. Now, before you start rolling your eyes at yet another blog …

3 pounds vs 8 cookies?

Gorgeous and inspiring. You can find out more about “Advanced Style” here.) I was in the gym over the holidays and overheard a conversation between two women, both in their late …

Meet your most fearless, confident and pure self

December 17, 2014

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin“She does what she wants and never anything to impress or please. She dances in the shadows when she wants and on centre stage when she wants. Her body is made for pleasure and she curves and rolls and reaches and mesmerizes. She is ice cold and fire hot. She is untouchable. Untameable. Unknowable.” These are some of the notes I made at the S-Factor retreat in January …

My thoughts on beauty…

December 3, 2014

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  Now that I have a daughter, I have been examining my opinion of the word “beautiful” and what beauty is. Or should be. Little girls hear a lot about being beautiful. They are told they look so pretty in their dress. That they are beautiful. Adorable. Cute. Smile for the camera! There is something in all of that that makes me feel uncomfortable. Whether …
