I’m about to get real vulnerable here…

  This past week was tough.  It wasn’t the 2 weeks of quarantine, (I am used to solitude).  It wasn’t my experiments with external and internal disciplines around food, alcohol, sleep, sensory intake or meditation routine.  It was an intentional desire to go deeper into what feels like is the perpetual lesson of my life on replay for the … More I’m about to get real vulnerable here…

Looking back…

Many of my conversations over the last week have revolved around the difference it makes whether or not fear is a prevailing force in one’s life. Tonight I had dinner with an incredible woman that I met only a week ago. One of many new friends I have met from my seat in my favorite … More Looking back…

INTENSE…

I will attempt to summarize the last 4 days of fasting…the one word that sums it up is…INTENSE. Let me clarify that this was a water fast.  No juice.  No food of any kind.  I took 2 capsules of ginger mix with 2 capsules of turmeric mix along with a tsp of microorganisms added to my drinking water and … More INTENSE…

Letting Go

  2019 felt tough.  Not bad, just challenging.  A lot of time spent intentionally alone.  Listening.  Being in discomfort.  Creating space for letting go, clearing and also to make room for what is coming next.  (Whatever that might be).  Part of my practice has been letting go of needing to have a backup plan, of needing to be in control & of … More Letting Go

Monthly musings…

  I’m sitting here reflecting like I do every 1st of the month.  I ask myself what was the most memorable moment, biggest lesson learned, how I spent my time, who I’m grateful for and how am I different from the last one?   It seems the theme and lesson of this year for me is to continually … More Monthly musings…

Kama: Pleasure & Joy…Enjoyment of the Senses

  The best part of my September was being in Retreat last weekend.  The theme of our time together was “Healing the Heart” through reclaiming Kama.  All that I learned during my time out in the woods of Wisconsin resonated so well with my current concepts of Freedom.  The idea that Freedom comes from an internal connection to yourself.  Kama … More Kama: Pleasure & Joy…Enjoyment of the Senses

Intention.

*To put thought, desire, and planned purpose into a goal or resolve. As I walked around my neighborhood yesterday reflecting on summer, it felt very intentional.  It was a lot of time spent at home preparing for what’s next.  It felt like I was being asked to get clear on what it is I want to focus … More Intention.

Social Media Break

“Sattva” in really simple terms is a quality. It is stable, light, intelligence, calm and closest to the pure nature of truth. As I prepare for this next session of deep study and learning in Yoga Therapist Certification, I find myself craving more solitude. So as I am learning this new job, solitude has to … More Social Media Break
