Will You Let Energy Serve You?

Calling all Mages! In over 20 years of facilitating healing and change with people and bodies, there's one approach I noticed that wasn't always working the way it could. Well meaning people, including myself, were using various techniques to clear their issues or limitations, but certain issues kept coming back. You can clear your crap 'til the cows come home, but if nothing much changes, what's the [...]

A New Beginning With Your Body

Thirty five years ago when I was a young mom at age 22, and pregnant with my second child, I never thought THIS would happen. To be sure, I’d had crazy doctors before, like the naturopath who predicted my uterus would “explode” (his word) and I’d be barren if I didn’t take his "extract of beef uterus"pills. To add to the weirdness, he also told me all [...]

Are You Making Your Problems a Big Hairy Deal?

How bored are you? Do you ever exaggerate the story of your life/day/weekend as a big hairy deal? Just so you can have something interesting to talk about with your friends or keep boredom at bay? In other words, do you have to make something sound more dramatic and problematic than it is in order to fit in or to entertain yourself? What I've found is that [...]

What Are You Tolerating in Your Life?

One of my favourite topics is creating. Likewise, what gives me a rush is when the act of creation dynamically changes something on the inner or outer levels that you have been tolerating. Did you know that a major block to creating is tolerating? What are you enduring that's been slowing you down? All those tolerations, as simple as a button missing off your favorite shirt, to owing library [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

How To Be Inconsistent And Successful

Have you ever felt bad about being inconsistent? Conversely, have you tried hard to be consistent? Perhaps in your workouts, your eating habits, your money habits or your work schedule? Maybe you've followed the self-help gurus out there that say that to be successful, you must “set your goals,” “focus on one thing at a time,” or “create a to-do list” and follow it? Seriously, has any [...]
