In Nature, Winter is a time of release and turning inward. Spring is a time of renewal and moving outward.
What are you willing to release in order to be renewed?Read More
Both Love and Grief are felt through connection to others. When we lose someone we love, we grieve. When a relationship with someone we love changes, we grieve. When someone we love is hurting in any way, we feel grief. Underlying Grief is the Love we feel for them. Sometimes, this can also bring up anger if the loss or change feels unfair, sudden, unexpected or out of our control. All of these, and more, can be our teachers. Teachers who offer us suggestions, growth, gifts and presence.Read More
What is your heartfelt desire? How do you truly want to feel?
Something may arise as soon as the question is asked. Still, sit with it a little longer...Read More
Let's Walk Together
While you walk in the darkness, let me offer you my hand.
I will not call it light because I am in darkness too.
I am your equal, rather than your rescuer.
I too see the days end and feel the weight that I alone carry.
I will smile, cry, furrow my brow and not pretend that you don't too.
I will be authentic and share with you and listen to you.
Let's walk together.
You do not have to pretend to be happy if you are not feeling that way.
There is no reward for plastic smiles.
Even though a smile may feel better, it is your choice.
It's not your duty.
I'm not saying we should have a pity party.
Let's be real.
Let's walk together.

As the days shorten, the leaves start changing colour and kids head back to school, there is a feeling of Autumn in the air. We may technically still call it Summer (I'm all for a bit more of that), yet there are the sure signs of a new season on the horizon. Change is in the air and it feels enticing while perhaps having us wishing for things to stay the same or hoping to settle into the new sooner than later. During transitions, it can feel chaotic and we can become ungrounded if we don't have some kind of support. Have you found the way your practice supports you through change?Read More
As you may well know, if you attend my classes, I'm a promoter of slowing down, softness and relaxation. The reason being is that much of life can seem to ask us to go fast, tense up and stay on high alert. We've all heard at some point that we should push our limits, step out of our comfort zone and do more. In some ways (sometimes) I agree, AND I suggest balancing it with the opposite. Especially if we've had the tendency to be an "A-type," have been on the go a lot or have a lot of stress.Read More
