How are you? It’s the simplest of questions. A typical greeting. A form of “hello”. But if you’re anything like me – raw, shaken, uplifted, forever changed, grief and gratitude-soaked after an unprecedented year – that question has felt heavier lately, more loaded. It was almost a year ago now, that I was diagnosed with...

Do you know how to feed your feminine? What does she like? Dislike? What fuels her? Dries her up? What has her relax, turn on, unwind, feel the feels, connect to her higher power, embody her emotions, and most importantly…trust? The word ‘feed’ is from the Old English fedan, which means “to nourish, give food...

It’s the week after Thanksgiving. We are rounding the bend, slogging towards Christmas with our masks firmly in place. At this point, there is not one of us whose lives have not been impacted directly or indirectly by the pandemic and its fallout.

The times we are living in are absolutely unprecedented. Daily, we swirl in limitations, strife, racial injustice, economic and social inequity, overt systemic misogyny, declining leadership – all against the backdrop of an unrelenting global pandemic. We can’t help but ask the questions: Who am I? What am I doing? Where is my community? My...

For many of us this is the defining moment of our lifetime. How will we choose to show up and respond? Our relationship to everything is changing. The world as we knew it, is crumbling. More than ever, we need to know that we can trust our deepest intuition to guide us. Now is the...

I am shy. Innately. I like running just under the radar. And then, on the other hand…I am on outrageous minx, a wild ball of fire, guzzling attention like it was Hi-test for my engine. (Hmmm…which is my truth, which is my cultural conditioning?) Tell me about you. In your opinion, where do you fall...

I have trouble making peace with myself some days. I might start the day with a whole litany of complaints about me: You don’t do enough activism! You didn’t recycle that plastic bag! You yelled at your boyfriend! You don’t visit your mother enough! You are too self absorbed! You stretch yourself too thin! You...
