On Saturday, November 19th I will be hosting a new workshop "Finding The Calm In The Chaos." This has been brewing for awhile, since creating "A Journey Through Self-Care" I knew there was more I wanted to offer in line with nurturing ourselves. The self-care workshop was designed to simply give women a day to… Continue reading Calm In The Chaos
Yesterday I was gifted a Reiki treatment; and during the session I had a lot of "remembering" going on. 2015 was a year I devoted to self-care. 2016 has been a year I've devoted to creating (art and business). 2015 felt like a year of recovery, stepping back from life, moving slowly, regaining groundedness and… Continue reading Remembering

I have heard that of all the emotions we feel, guilt has the lowest vibration. I am the queen of 'feeling guilty.' It is something I have been aware of, and worked with stopping, for years; but yesterday was a challenge. My son had the flu all weekend, and I managed to pick it up… Continue reading Guilt, Let It Go.
When I did my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training, our teachers shared a story with us that helped me break through a very emotional upheaval that hit me while laying in sivasana at the end of our class (I spent three days crying).
