Surrender to What Is

Today, I let go.  I let go of all the resistance inside my being to the beauty of what is. I take a breath as I open to the rays of the warm sun. It feels like dipping in a warm pool of water.  I feel the layers of tension in my body let go.  […]

Riding the Waves of Uncertainty

  I’m back in Boulder from a 5 month whirlwind of an adventure out to Southern California with my husband and 2 boys. I have not left Boulder for that long since my trip to India back in 1997. When I went to India, I knew what to expect to some degree. All my friends who […]

Love Your Body

Today I practiced loving my body. Why? Because I’ve been judging it. Most of the time I feel really good inside my body but given some of our circumstances lately, I haven’t. In my meditation this morning, I decided I would focus my attention on loving my body, every single part of it. I put my […]

Navigating Through the Unknown

This morning my husband and I took our morning walk on the beach. We hold this time as an opportunity to deepen our dialogue around our visions and what we want to manifest in our lives. Today we were talking about the challenge of not knowing what’s next as we come to the last two […]

Owl Medicine

Last night an owl sat outside my bedroom on a telephone pole. I went out on the deck and stood with it. After a bit it flew off. Then it came back and I feel asleep to it hooting. In many cultures Owl is a symbol for wisdom. This is because Owl can see that […]

Contentment and Cultivating Presence

We are officially into March. Both of my kids were born this month and I’m always reminded of this time of birth and renewal. Our theme this month of March will be exploring one of the ethical principles of Yoga in the niyamas called santosha which means complete contentment or acceptance. The niyamas are an important […]

Leaving Home and Finding New Ground

I’ve been settling into this new place here on the west coast for two and a half weeks now. It’s been a roller coaster of emotions and feelings and the ride continues.  I have moments where I feel like I’ve gone down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland, not knowing which way is up and […]

Radical Self-Transcendance

In the midst of packing to go on an adventure to the west coast for the winter I am planning my fourteenth annual women’s Solstice practice. We are calling in the Hindu Goddess Chinnamasta, the headless goddess of radical self-transcendance. From the yogic spiritual tradition, the condition of the headless state represents in fact our […]

Through Darkness There is Always Light

As we enter this time of the Winter Solstice, the darkest and longest night of the year, we stand in the midst of so many unprecedented shifts on the earth and particularly within our own country. How we step through this time of the year, MATTERS. It is a powerful time to witness and listen […]
