Staying True to Our Nature

2021-05-31T15:35:26+00:00

During a fascinating podcast I heard a few weeks ago, the speaker mentioned that as humans, we have essentially “written ourselves out” of the definition of nature. In fact, he pointed out, nature is currently defined as being in opposition to humanity. Shocked, I insisted to myself that this could not possibly be true. So, [...]

Show Your Ugly

"Embrace the glorious mess that you are." – Elizabeth Gilbert There is a well documented link between social media and mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, insomnia and low self-esteem. This link is particularly strong among adolescents. There are multiple reasons for this connection, but one cause recently came into my personal awareness and [...]

Don’t Ask Your Doctor

2020-12-28T22:35:36+00:00

"Within you is the light of a thousand suns. Within you is unimaginable beauty." - Robert Adams Most of us are quite familiar with the phrase, "ask your doctor _________."

What Do You Smell?

"Remind yourself, you will have a final exhale, and you don't know when." -Daniela Hess, YogaFarm I was given the instruction to think about this quote every day for a week as part of my Spiritual Warrior training program. At first, I thought it was such a sad and morbid thing to think about. However, [...]

Are You Weird?

2020-12-20T11:39:13+00:00

Do you ever feel like a total freak? Do you harbor a secret fear that if you were to show your true self, you would be rejected by the world? I've had this fear all of my life and I've never felt even close to being "normal." While I've always been pretty "out there" and [...]

Doing Less, Being More

2020-12-20T11:38:26+00:00

2020 stopped us in our tracks.  A micro-particle spread across the planet and changed our lives forever  and in many ways…slowed us down. Yesterday I found (and purchased) a Christmas ornament.  A nice, delicate ornament made with that creamy colored ceramic typical to all things homemade and hand done.  It had an imprint of a [...]

Dance Naked Every Day

2020-10-17T01:06:36+00:00

Tonight I had a naked dance party with my toddler and my infant. This is an almost nightly event in our home. Tonight we danced to some Macklemore songs, including "And We Danced." As I jumped around the room, I let everything go. I flung my body intensely and soaked in the moment. It was [...]
