When Everything Feels Tense

Today I had one of those days where I felt irritated and short tempered.  I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do.  I did my morning meditation.  As I came out I felt into what I needed. I needed to have some alone time in the mountains.  So I created that space with my family […]

The Sun, the Moon and ME

Something that came up for me while I was participating at a retreat in Montana a few weeks ago was how focused I’ve been for so long on healing and empowering my feminine side. One night we were asked to explore the moon energy, the feminine. I sat under the vast Montana sky, gazing at […]

Winter Bones

I just returned from a wintery morning walk in the falling snow and received this beautiful poem from a friend over email. It was timely and I felt it today, “the cold grey falls from the air” death lurking in the starkness of the trees. Where is that spark of life? The light is dim […]

Made of Honey

Last week before Thanksgiving, I co- facilitated a ceremony of deep healing and opening. A group of amazing, evolved beings came together at a mountain home close to Boulder. Snow was lightly falling outside and inside, the house was dim with fairy lights and candles. As people entered, they immediately smiled with gratitude for the […]

In My Own Voice

I am so in love with the way David Whyte speaks so clearly through his poetry of this time we are experiencing in our evolution of choosing radical truth.  I just completed the first module of Embody Shakti Yogini Teacher Training. We spoke a lot about truth and what that means.  Truth is different for each person […]

Entering the Silence of the Heart

“We search for happiness everywhere, but we are like Tolstoy’s fabled beggar who spent his life sitting on a pot of gold, under him the whole time. Your treasure–your perfection–is within you already. But to claim it, you must leave the buy commotion of the mind and abandon the desires of the ego and enter […]

Inviting the Opening

Today I took a class from a teacher I used to study with back when I was deeply immersed in my yoga studies before kids. She comes in from Italy every so often now and brings her Italian charm as well as her intense, commanding Iyengar teachings. Though she humiliated me a bit in the […]
