You Are Not Too Old, And It Is Not Too Late

You are not too old and it is not too late. These timely words from poet Rainer Maria Rilke branded me almost viscerally the first time I met a woman I’ll refer to as Dorothy. It was 1998 in Salt Lake City, where I was a dancer in a showcase performance of sacred dancers from all around the globe. One of the dances that took my breath away [...]

Being Vulnerable Without Giving Up Your Authority

Working as a body coach and hands-on body healer, I ask to be vulnerable with my clients. Funnily enough, being vulnerable doesn't come to me as easily as I had thought. However, what I've noticed is when I ask to lower my barriers, it helps get me out of my preconceived notions about me, about the person, and about what will unfold during the session. Likewise, I [...]

When You Define Your Body, You Confine It

How many ways to define, label and describe your body have you created? Have you decided how much it should weigh? Or how stressed out it is? What about the size and shape of your nose? How many notions do you have about how your body should, would or could function, only if...? The problem with defining anything is that you confine it to the box of [...]

Do You Admire Others More Than Yourself?

Do you have a HERO or HEROINE? Is there someone you admire? What are the qualities in them that you admire or aspire to be like?  Remember the 1980’s movie classic, When Harry Met Sally? Sally faked an orgasm in a restaurant and an older woman watching, said, “I’ll have what she’s having!”  A few years ago I met a delightful person who was “bright and shiny” [...]

Lessons for Living from Art School – Letting Your Creations Die

I went to art school way back in the 1980’s when I was pregnant with my second child. One of the classes I took was “Weaving.” My professor was renowned for her huge colourful weavings that hung in downtown banks and professional buildings. Her woven pieces were exquisite, breath-taking and one of a kind. Most disturbing, once the contract with the building was over, she destroyed her [...]

5 Steps to Happiness No Matter What!

Happiness. What’s so great about it? Growing up in Christianity, I believed happiness was a by-product of my right relationship with Jesus Christ. It wasn't something of value in and of itself.  Even the letters J-O-Y stood for always thinking of Jesus first, Others second and Yourself last. That was considered True JOY. When I was happy as a kid,  it was often tinged with guilt, because I was pretty sure [...]

My “aha!” About the Energetics of Business

I recently asked a superwoman-colleague how she's able to efficiently manage 100's of classes around the world? To be specific, she seems to have a knack to know when this seminar requires some attention...or that one needs a new hosting team, or another's dates need to change. Her super power sense knows when to make a tweak or there . . . and for 100's of classes [...]

The Power of Conscious Touch

An article by blogger James Webb, Existential Depression in Gifted Individuals, tugged at me when he spoke about breaking through the sense of isolation through touch. Just as infants need to be held and touched, those kids experiencing existential depression need it too. Many of us have heard of the failure to thrive syndrome with infants and their mothers. Similarly, my take on it is that bodies of all [...]
