Pop-up Akasha: Centering lab

Last year I started getting nudges to host “pop-up Akasha” events, and to be honest, I ignored them because I didn’t want to figure out the how and why—forgetting that that wasn’t my job. Last February things came to a head and I couldn’t ignore the call any longer, so I hosted a...

Akashic Learning 12: Who am I?

In my youth work, everything I did turned on two questions: ‘Who are you?’ and ‘Who are you becoming?’ I’d foolishly assumed I’d settled these questions for myself back in my 20s, when I thought to know myself I merely had to discern my preferences and opinions on...

“Show me who I am” [ancestors + solar plexus meditation]

One of my favorite sources of tools is the Akashic Records, since they come tailor-made for the recipient. This tool is one I actually channeled for a client, but as it is often the case in readings, there was something in it for me, as well. I felt resonance in my body as I was […]...

“Who am I?”, or spring cleaning

I am a big believer in working the question “Who am I?” regularly, and from multiple angles. This is a great personal inventory tool that was inspired by Byron Katie‘s “four questions.” I call it “spring cleaning” because it involves the same process of disc...

Dreamers & Schemers May 2017 gathering

AGREEMENTS For the May gathering we welcomed a new member to our circle, so I took my time with the agreements. Because we were talking about personal power this month, I underscored the policy of not offering help to anyone unless they ask for it. It may seem counterintuitive, but part of claiming ...

Dreamers & Schemers 9

DREAMERS & SCHEMERS is an alternative to mastermind and networking groups. It is a space for heart- and brainstorms. Come to be seen, heard, and held. Come to be inspired. Why “dreamers and schemers”? Because we are what’s born in the dark.

WHAT: To hold space for individuals in transition and projects in growth, and to come to truth, integrity, and clarity in community.

WHO: For youth development and non-profit professionals who consider service to others an important aspect of who they are.

HOW: Dreamers and Schemers gatherings are a combination of a focused topic discussion or activity related to the process of developing a project/business idea or managing life transitions, and a circle of trust practice of asking open and honest questions and deep listening.

TOPIC: In September we will deepen last month’s inquiry into identity by tackling the question “Who am I?” head on. This will be a multi-pronged approach that will include body awareness and more reflective exercises on “discovery” and letting go. If time allows, we will continue with circling practice.

WHEN: Thurs, September 8, 2016 at 7p. Doors open at 6:30p.

WHERE: 140 Riverside Blvd. between 66th & 67th Sts.

TOPIC: In August we will be tackling how to get through election season and deal with violence and tragedy in the news. We will approach this topic in three ways: self care (including what blocks us from taking steps we know would be good for us); viewing the other as a mirror of the self; and loving your enemy. If time allows, we will continue with circling practice.

Mid-year reflection

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve written here, and I can’t give a pat answer for why I haven’t been moved to blog even though I’ve been processing a ton of learning and sharing it elsewhere. Today I drafted an email to my Dreamers & Schemers and thought to sha...

When identity is shaken, what takes its place?

The topic of identity keeps popping up in conversations with people in different areas in my life, which signals to me that it’s time to pen my current thoughts on it. Two questions drive this investigation. The first from friends, peers, and colleagues on the brink or in the midst of transiti...
