My New Women’s Circle

I am so happy to launch my new Women’s Circle. I’ve been wanting to do so for quite some time. For one thing, I really need it! And for another, the pillars of my community over the years have been held up by amazing women and I long to be with women in community— beyond […]

Putting Power Back into Peace

Peace is a pretty wornout and tattered word.  It’s been used to convey empty sentimentality, sell soft drinks and lull victimized people into not standing up for their rights. For some of us, the word has probably lost its vibration, meaning we hear the word, know what it means, but our emotions are not stirred. I’ll spare you the […]

Beyond the Mat and Cushion

Beyond the mat and cushion. How you do 1 thing is how you do all things. Have you ever heard this old adage (or some similar expression of it?) “How you do one thing is how you do everything” And, if so, have you ever tested this alleged truth out for yourself in your own experience? […]

Pranayama- Deepen Your Shallow Breath

This might be the first ever free video I’ve shared with you? I’ve shared plenty of free audios, books and other media, but never a vid. So, I’m kind of excited. (((It’s also kind of strange I’ve never shared a video because I’ve worked with film and video for years. Analog & digital.))) Anyway, this vid […]

Seed Screams

I heard something recently that has really stuck with me. The human feeling most analogous to the feeling a seed has when it opens is a scream. Think of how you feel when you scream. Now imagine what it would be like to realize your whole body was about to crack open and that your […]

Gather at the Goldmine

If you’re on my Northern California email list, you might know that last Sunday I held a daylong retreat in my studio called GATHER AT THE GOLDMINE. We spent the day digging deep into our inner riches to learn more about WHAT we wanted and HOW to get it. Let me just say this retreat […]

Take it all back

(Clearing throat) What I’m currently going through. Taking myself back. Still. Despite the urge to spread myself out smoothly, in all my expansive wonder, I’m currently gathering myself back into the jar I come from. Still. Again and again. I started this re-gathering of self months ago. (See previous post “Gather: My Word for 2017″. ) I spent […]

Retreat Street Repeat

>>>>  Retreat Street Repeat > Retreat Street Repeat >>>>   (RE) TREAT. At least a little while every day. Even if it’s sitting in your car in a parking lot for 3 minutes. Any quiet and safe place where you can be alone (if possible) and get still will prove to be a gift. Eyes open […]

My Word for 2017

My word for 2017 is GATHER. I didn’t even know I was looking for a word for the year until the last few weeks of 2016. The word GATHER started to find its way into my sentences. What’s more, I liked how I felt when I uttered the word. Gather. A feeling of gravitas and grounding. A […]

Morning Bed Meditation

This morning bed meditation comes from the place in our consciousness where dreams and meditation overlap. But, no, this isn’t a story about falling asleep during meditation and nearly toppling off the cushion. It’s a delicious practice to try in bed, under the blankets while propped up on well-fluffed pillows and another pillow tucked under your […]
