The power of being emotional

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 …

I went all the way to SF to break down

September 14, 2016

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedinEarlier this year, I attended a day retreat with Sarah Jenks and Nisha Moodley. I didn’t know much about either of these women but I had been on their email lists for a while and working at home by myself can really be isolating so every once in a while, I leap out of my chair and just grab onto something that connects me to …

What these women wanted SO deeply

June 21, 2016

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin    I want my husband to desire me. I want my body to forgive me. I want to trust fully again. I want to show my husband this part of me – all of me. I want hot, passionate, window-breaking, earth-shaking sex. I want to open my heart. I want to be vulnerable. I want to accept love. I want to heal the scared …

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. …

What I learned from “Thelma and Louise”…

March 10, 2016

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  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

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 …

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 …

Speed-date your soul

July 2, 2015

Google+emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  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 …
