Self-approval

Coochie? Cupcake? Tutu? “Down There”?

September 6, 2016

  Think about it for a sec. When you were growing up, what did your ‘bits and pieces’ get called? Can you remember? This might seem like a frivolous question at first. But hang in there with me. At the beginning of Mastery, our foundational course at the School, I will ask this exact question […]

The #1 Key to Bold Confidence (and All That’s Possible As a Result)

August 29, 2016

  They say that fortune favors the bold. But what if there is nothing really bold going on right now? And worse still—what if I think I actually have no bold? And what if I am right? I like to think of myself as an avid student of bold. As an educator and thought leader, […]

Sex ed? More please.

August 10, 2016

  I was at a dinner party with a gang of gals a couple weeks ago. Several of these women were in the process of raising teenagers. And of course, after a while, our conversation turned to sex. Specifically, the challenges of raising teens in a porn-infused world, where any kid who can use google […]

Violence flourishes without the feminine.

July 27, 2016

  There are things I know how to do. When a kid falls and scrapes her knee, I am so good for picking her up and soothing her, whether she’s mine or someone else’s. When a friend needs emotional support, I’m 100% there. But when I read the news these days, I feel kicked in the […]

July 19, 2016

  Where did you get your heartbreak training? Today, I’m going to tell you a story of where I got mine, and the experience that turned it all on its head (for the better).  But before I do, I have a quick update for you: A few weeks ago, I told you to save the […]

Overloaded with “shoulds”? This can help.

June 29, 2016

  Just a few weeks ago, one of my students was asking me how the heck is a gal supposed to stay inside her beautiful, beguiling, creative, endlessly renewing feminine nature, while living in a rip-roaringly masculine, gotta-get-it-done patriarchal world that encourages us to set goals and hit them out of the park, and all […]

The Soul of Overeating

June 7, 2016

Raise your hand if you have a simple, loving, rainbows and butterflies relationship with your bod. And food. And weight. If you’re one of the rare women in this camp – oh my goddess, hallelujah. And if not, I got you. It’s not you, it’s us. It’s one of the byproducts of being born into […]

Courage, pleasure, and shoes.

April 19, 2016

Back in the day, when I was just figuring out how to spread my School of Womanly Arts wings, I held my very first classes in my living room. These were tiny workshops with a few handfuls of women that I taught out of my brownstone apartment on the Upper West Side, after I tucked […]

If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a no.

April 5, 2016

  Yo lady. Who are you when it comes to stating your truth? Your deep true truth. Are you a she wolf? Proudly howling your truth out loud? A mad dog? Rage first, talk later? A wolf in sheep’s clothing? Smile on face, secret knife pointed towards the belly? The silence of the lambs? You […]

you suck at receiving, my love.

March 16, 2016

  So, last night, my friend Cathy and I had dinner. I noticed that she had a different hair style – she had highlights and it looked just great. When I complimented her, she said, “Oh no, it looks awful, and I am wearing it pinned back so you can’t see my grey.” I insisted […]
