What Is Faith To You?

By | Resiliance, Tuesday Tip | No Comments

One of my dearest friends recently gave me a bracelet that has the word Faith printed on it.  It was her way of reminding me to have it and keep coming back to it. I treasure her gift because faith is something I have grappled with for as long as I can remember. In fact, this post stems from my acknowledgment that I need it now more than ever and I am really just starting…

What If I Can’t think My Way Out?

By | Resiliance, Tuesday Tip | No Comments

For those of us super “heady folks” who are gifted at reason and rational thought the title of this blog can seem like a silly question. I get it.  I am with you. I love using intellect to “figure” my way out of a situation that feels uncomfortable or challenging. There is definitely a time and a place to use logic and brain-power to find solutions. And have you ever found yourself bumping up against…

Do You Know Your Cycles and Rhythms?

By | Resiliance, Tuesday Tip | No Comments

The idea of cycles and rhythms is not one that is unique to any one school of thought or spiritual teaching and because it is my particular path, I will share the following insights with you from a Huna (ancient Hawaiian system of spirituality and working with energy) perspective. Everything in nature has cycles and rhythms.  We see this most obviously with respect to the seasons.  The other universal truth to examine for the purpose…

How Do You Define Family?

By | Resiliance | One Comment

Father’s Day was about a week ago and I was so fortunate to spend it with my brother and his family.  My brother has always been a source of strength, stability, and in many ways a father figure to me in his own right.  Given that we lost our dad last year, we were both happy to be able to celebrate him together while my brother also got to have his beautiful kids and amazing…

But What If It Hurts Too Much?

By | Resiliance | 2 Comments

  A few weeks ago, I wrote an article about leaning in. It is a fundamental aspect of healing and transformation to come to a space of unconditional acceptance of what is.  In fact, it is one of the 7 Pillars of Resilience as I have humbly been able to identify them. Since they came to me in that divine download, I do my very best every day to live by them and I would…

It Is All Inside of You

By | Resiliance | One Comment

  Warning: We are gonna get pretty out there with this one but I promise to make it practical and applicable for ya. Recently I had a conversation with a client where she said to me that she loved a book I recommended to her because it has taught her certain things that she didn’t know.  I found the comment interesting and even more than that, I found my response even more fascinating. I found…

Again? Really?

By | Resiliance | No Comments

I recently returned from leading a yoga retreat in Greece with 22 incredible people. There was a mixed group with both married and single folks on the trip.  Some were young and experiencing their first love. Some were in the midst of a divorce, some happily married or in relationships and some hoping to find that special someone. The question I got a lot from the single folks seeking a relationship or those in the…

Let’s Rise Together

By | Resiliance | No Comments

Last week I wrote a post about knowing or finding your tribe and really connecting with them. A big part of practicing resilience is about connecting with a community and allowing yourself to receive support while also being willing to give back in return. I am here in Greece leading a yoga retreat with twenty-two amazing yogis and this morning I taught a Buti yoga class which combines tribal dance with yoga. It is such…

It Has to Start With You

By | Resiliance | 2 Comments

A few weeks ago I wrote an article about falling in love.  Not just falling in love in the typical way we think, but being in a state love as much as we can.  Loving everything that we do in day-to-day life. I got to thinking about this and realized that I may have left out a really crucial piece of this puzzle, which is that it actually has to start with you. I used…
