For a Mother-To-Be…

For all the new mamas to be…one of my favorite poets of all time…

For A Mother-To-Be by John O’Donohue

Nothing could have prepared your heart to open like this.

From beyond the skies and the stars
This echo arrived inside of you and started to pulse with life
Each beat a tiny act of growth,
Traversing all our ancient shapes,
On […]

On Spirit Animals that come into our Lives…

I’m always amazed at how the Universe sends her little messages of Love.

Truth be told, I haven’t been listening. Life has been pretty chaotic this year – and chaos is a word I try and avoid most of the time and use only when necessary. It’s not a word that makes me feel good on […]

On Why I Teach.

There is an entire world out there that I wish to touch, explore, enjoy, to know.

There is so much color, vibrancy, textures, smells, experiences that I wish to call mine, but somehow, I spend more and more time in the quiet, with myself, breathing, meditating, writing, being.

I certainly can’t say this was my experience in […]

The Art of Courage

Welcome.
Learning to own everything that is ours requires tremendous Courage.

To see ourselves so clearly,
with conviction,
that who we are is in fact who we are offering to our world,
and not an inflated or less than version of ourselves,
requires profound Courage.

To embrace ourselves,
with all of our flaws
and be able to Forgive ourselves takes massive amounts of Love…

And […]

Home is where YOU are.

Home. When we are home, we feel safe. When we are home, we feel connected. When we are home, we can curl up, get quiet and DO nothing, and simply BE.

Where is your home?

Is your home your little apartment? Your fancy house? Your teepee? Your car? Your meditation cushion?

Whatever you call your “home”, go one […]

Read: Perfection. The Silent Killer.

I recently discovered that someone had taken a piece of my writing, tweaked it a bit and reposted it, passing it off as their own genius.

At first, I was irked. The more irked I became, the more I began to dive into why it was irking me so much.  The more I dived in, the […]

Happiness within a relationship – 20 ways to nurture love and live happily

I am still considered a newlywed. My husband and I have been married for a year and a half and I can assure you, not all our days have been as bliss-filled as I would like it to be. Things will be good for a small amount of time, then things will literally feel like […]

Stop. Peel your eyes away from your screen.

Blink once, twice, look around and wake up to life happening around you.

The sunrise happened when you and I were looking at your gadget trying to take a picture of it. Wouldn’t it be better to actually see it in all its glory, as it is rising to shine light on our day, and […]

Read: Sharing the intangibles of Yoga

I was asked recently to speak about why yoga is important and what I wish to, as a yoga instructor bring to my fellow practicing yogis…I had to spend a moment and write down some thoughts, some free flowing thoughts coming from the heart.

Why is yoga important to me? What do I wish to […]
