The power of being emotional

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

May 24, 2016

    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. …

What I learned from “Thelma and Louise”…

March 10, 2016

  I have been thinking about the concept of feeling alive…as in, how do we know we are alive? And for some reason, my brain instantly goes to this scene from “Thelma and Louise”. I think of it often because when I first watched the movie, it gave me chills. For those who don’t know this movie… wait a second! What the….. IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THIS MOVIE then WHAT ARE …

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 …

A story about saying the un-sayable

November 12, 2015

  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

Well, 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

That 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 …

Speed-date your soul

July 2, 2015

  What is a soul? There are lots of good guesses around but does anyone really know? So, for this exercise, you decide what the word means for you. When I use that word, I imagine an essence inside me that is truth-knowing, truth-speaking, untarnished, unafraid, shameless, endlessly optimistic and perfectly me. The real me, perhaps. I am guessing that for most of us, conversations with our …

Our mighty rage….and why it kicks *ss!

September 2, 2014

Today, I’d like to talk about something that women don’t talk about very much. Our rage. It isn’t pretty. It isn’t nice. It isn’t talked about much. Otherwise known as anger. Fury. Molten lava heated temper explosion. Storm. Super-duper uncontrollable MAD MAD MAD. I’ve felt anger before but I have never experienced rage like I do now. Thank you, motherhood. There is something about caring …

“…and I love myself!”

July 4, 2014

The other day, my three-year old daughter was telling me who she loved. The usual; mummy, daddy, baby brother and then she said “…and I love myself.” Wow. How did she know that? Where did she get that from? We’ve never talked about how she should love herself or the power of positive messages. She said it naturally and without any sense of it being different …

“Feeling” vs “being”…

June 26, 2014

“You have no need to travel anywhere. Journey within yourself, enter a mine of rubies and bathe in the splendour of your own light.” Rumi There is a difference between being and feeling. This took me some time to understand. And I still need to constantly remind myself to aim for feeling, not being. Being is easy if your description of what you want to “be” …
