Nurtured By Nature

What are your favorite spaces in nature to play? Oceans? Beaches? Woods? Meadows? Farms? Tropical forests? Mountains? The sky? Your backyard? We would love to hear from you! One of the qualities that makes nature so appealing is that it does not judge. It is simply there, doing its thing, growing leaves, fur or feathers, petals or wings. Being the best flower, or dog, or rock [...]

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 [...]

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” [...]

Make Your Art

Yes you. Do that thing you enjoy making. Even if _____________ (insert fave excuse here). Because, you never know who, what, where, when and how it will impact someone. And that someone could be YOU! Once upon a time, I had the point of view that I couldn't create because someone else already probably made it.  I was also guilty of waiting to create before it was really great to [...]

Good Night Bayfield, Michigan

Our last night on our trip around Lake Superior. Pulled into a sweet spot for the night. Our dogs had been champs when it came to our neighbour's little dog that loved barking at them all the time. We mused on how far they've come along on these 2 weeks being able to be with other dogs, running kids & loud motors. GOOD DOGGIES! After a long day of [...]
