January 5, 2017

emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  (I can’t believe that I had actually forgotten about Xena, Warrior Princess for a few years. Never again!!) Do you recognize yourself in this? The warrior who fights for everyone else but herself? We rage at our schools, our daycares and our camps to demand better treatment, better food, better playgrounds, better resources for our kids. We join petitions and send emails to complain …

What’s hiding in your body?

December 1, 2016

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 …

Desire. Appetite. Hunger. Wanting.

July 21, 2016

emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  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 do you want for yourself, greedily, selfishly, gloriously, revelling in what it is to be you and want what you uniquely want. To know and live inside your desires is both deliciously forbidden (a woman’s appetite, in all it’s …

What I struggled with in learning how to prioritize myself

June 29, 2016

emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin    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, …

Can I help you make this big change in your life?

June 5, 2016

emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin  I have opened registration for the Juicy Woman Revolution full-day retreat on July 16th in Toronto, Canada. My intention is that every woman who comes walks away having been filled to the brim with self-love, in a body that she feels connected to and adoring of, and having experienced what it feels like to be fully expressed and fully herself. And most importantly, she’s going …

I just had to write this about our crisis of overwhelm

May 30, 2016

emailTwitterFacebookLinkedin   I know a lot about my overwhelm. My anxiety. My too much. I am in a constant flux of where my too much is, what to drop, what to take on, what my needs are right now and what I need to do today to love and honour myself. (And when you start to live in your body more than in your brain, you …

What I learned from “Thelma and Louise”…

March 10, 2016

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

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 …

I am not a domesticated animal

January 12, 2016

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 …

Guilt – kicking it’s *ss in my first audio recording!

November 3, 2015

emailTwitterFacebookLinkedinHere it is; my first audio recording. Just changing it up. Sometimes my mouth works faster than my brain so I thought this might be a good medium to try. I’m building up to video. (And to the movies, obviously.) I chose guilt as my topic. Because every woman has it. Every woman feels it. And it is such a party-pooper. After many conversations with …
