Earth Day

In celebration of Earth Day, my yoga studio had a special yoga/reiki/sound bath experience.  Now, I love this sort of shit, but also realize it is not everyone’s cuppa.  You do you, boo. My takeaways: The bliss of a two-hour session offering extended restorative yoga asanas, savasana, and Reiki therapy;  along with indescribable gongs, drums, […]

LET IT GO

Sometimes, I hold so tightly to ideas, things, people, relationships, behaviors, and any number of worldly things, my clenched fists of control ache.

Secrets, Shame, and SHINE

We are only as sick as our secrets. I share a lot.  I realize my way of processing and moving through difficult situations and experiences is not everyone’s cuppa.  That is so cool.  Don’t read my stuff, unfollow, block.  My journey is my own, just as yours is yours. Over the past year, there has […]

Free

I release myself from all the shame and judgments that have caused pain. I allow myself to be free—to live presently, I joy peace, love, faith, and ease. I allow myself to thrive in connected relationships, to grow and flourish in all areas of my life, to experience and embrace fun, play, dance, song, and […]
