What remains

Once upon a time, without any warning, I never went back home from summer vacation, and was placed at the very last minute as an international student at an American boarding school. It was a rough first year, but sometime along the way I lost my accented English, found a circle of friends, and came...

Who am I without authority?

“What comes after ambition?” This is the question I held in my fields last year when I started feeling myself being purged of ambition. The answers I got and continue to get are multi-layered, but divesting myself of authority is one of the more recent developments. Who am I without ambition? Wh...

Stillness, motion, balance

Over the winter my learning around balance found new ground in our community yoga practice. Even in Vinyasa classes, where transitions are important, most yoga teachers tend to focus on getting students to experience the fullest expression of an asana their body is able to find on any given day. By ...

Surrender to mystery with grace

I may have mentioned before how the Hermit card regularly comes up for me, signaling or confirming an instinct to turn inward for an extended period. Yet surprisingly, the card I’ve been drawing with startling consistency during lockdown has been the High Priestess. She taps into the magic that li...

A heart like the sun, pt 2

Earlier this year my 2020 manifestation mantra came to me as I was chipping old paint off a door: “A heart like the sun.” It came in on rays of yellow and orange, so I set up a crystal grid with those colors, including a tarot and oracle card that came up in a personal […]...

You are the river meeting the ocean

This morning in that liminal state between sleep and wakefulness I felt myself join the waters of planet, but in such a way that I sensed their connection and their wholeness. I felt, in other words, how the sweet waters eventually flowed into the salty depths of the ocean, only to rise again into t...

Good riddance

About two and a half years ago I wrote about how challenging it was to stomach the mounting stream of natural disasters around our planet. Yet what kept coming back to me was this recurring vision that always gave me very odd comfort: a young woman sitting in the rubble of a post apocalyptic scenari...

Connect with your future self

When I want to set a stronger intention for walking my highest path and I am not sure what that looks like, I connect with what it feels like. The easiest way I have found to do this was something that the Akashic Records taught me during a client session: connect with the future version […]...

Take it to the trees

2020 was the year my Instagram friend Lee and I hoped to meet each other in person, yet who knows when we’ll all be free to travel once more. The other day she mentioned she was going to spend time with her trees and in popped inspiration we both thrilled to: Could she please whisper […]...

Internal timing

Yesterday I wrote about the idea of simply showing up to life as a way of escaping the survive/thrive duality. Today I want to get very concrete about how to ground or integrate this energy in your life. Obviously, if you are truly in a survival situation—and I mean one that isn’t merely interpr...
