The Invitation

I'll meet you here, where the paved road ends and days are synced with the clock in the sky where downloading silence improves our connection and loading our bones with movement lightens the weight of the world where curiosity is the only currency of value and its dividends are paid in moonshine & sunsets where … Continue reading The Invitation

A New Year’s Resolution

As this year is winding down the phrase New Year’s Resolution has been skipping through my mind. It occurred to me that there is one approach to new year’s resolutions that most of us don’t take. That being to adjust our resolution. Not as in I resolve to be healthier. Resolution as in the ability … Continue reading A New Year’s Resolution

3 Steps to Transition Mindfully

When going through transition it can sometimes feel like we bring all of our old stuff into a new place. Kind of like moving houses. Our surroundings change, but we don't. I often feel resistant to change because it requires me to get uncomfortable. I sort of grin and bear it until I'm through the ickyness and back … Continue reading 3 Steps to Transition Mindfully

Take Heart

What do you think of when you hear the word courageous? I think of someone being strong, brave, and trembling. They are not without fear; they are just with courage, which gives them the strength to face their fear. When we are courageous or when we are encouraged we feel inflated, filled up, hopeful, inspired, … Continue reading Take Heart

This Too Shall Pass

I’ve been practicing Yoga Nidra (also known as yogic sleep) the last few months to help me unwind and rest. The tape I’ve been listening to has this instruction early on: Bring your attention to what’s already happening. I like to think of attention as being my full awareness, senses, and being. This is altogether … Continue reading There’s No Prerequisite for Presence

“You Reading This, Be Ready”

That's the title of a William Stafford poem that contains this powerful question: Will you ever bring a better gift for the world than the breathing respect that you carry wherever you go right now?  I've been contemplating how I hold space for others and how others hold space for me, mostly because I've recently been … Continue reading “You Reading This, Be Ready”

The Secret of Life

These days I'm not too picky about where I find revelation, inspiration, or dedication. It doesn't have to fit a certain image, philosophy, or point of view. I redefine what "sacred" is every day, and it doesn't have to come in a pretty package, be perfect or palatable. In fact, I often find the sacred … Continue reading The Secret of Life

When One Door Closes…

I recently walked through a wide open door in my life that I had been completely missing because my I was too busy staring at a door that was closed. The door I wanted to walk through, the door I was anxious to walk through, the door I was sure I was supposed to walk … Continue reading When One Door Closes…
