I’ve been thinking of and visiting with matters of the heart this last week.Read More
Unadressed trauma, conditioning, subconscious programming, societal and media influence, and emotional repression are all ways people have learned to forget about themselves.Read More
I’m entirely sick of the Enneagram.Read More
What if showing up boundaried meant standing solidly in the truth of who you are without the responsibility of caring for others through their discomfort as a reaction to you?Read More
I deeply, deeply believe that we are here to witness ourselves and express the authentic being we find within our bodies and our hearts. I deeply, deeply believe that we are here to witness each other too. I honestly can’t come up with any other reason than this one: love.Read More
December for me was a month for befriending grief. Experiencing grief isn’t a new experience for me but the intention to which I chose to dive in to it was. Leaning in to and expressing my grief has been a powerful catalyst for growth, and in allowing the grief to move through me there continues to be what I deem as sacred space created within me to continue to move toward my truth with conviction and reverence.Read More
“Reforestation is the #1 climate change solution in a landmark 2017 peer-reviewed study that was led by scientists from over 15 institutions, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which expanded and refined the scope of land-based climate solutions previously assessed by the IPCC. Conservation, or the “avoidance of forest conversion” was 2nd.”Read More
Much of my meditations lately have consisted of me hanging out with my child self. It’s been a celebration of where we’ve come, what we’ve done to get here, and how we did it. Together.Read More

I had the opportunity to be a guest on the podcast Love Always, Jo. Read more about my experience and listen to this episode to hear more about the wisdom of the body. You’ll also hear first hand how I coach Joanna, the host, about something that’s been going on with her body recently.Read More
I often wonder what the world would be like if we all could just be who we wanted to be. If we all could do what we wanted to do. If we all found solid gold within our being.Read More
Over the weekend I took a continuing education class called the Fascial Pelvis.
It’s a course offered through the John F. Barnes approach to myofascial release which is the training that I received that elicited my transition to doing myofascial release work almost exclusively.
The weekend felt profound in many ways for me and I am surprise at the amount of information and new skill set that I came away with.Read More
“How do emotions show up in the body?”
I hear this question all the time. There is no generalized answer as you and your associated stories are complex. Often it is not just emotions but unconscious belief systems, patterning, and sometimes trauma all wound together affecting the shape of your body, how you feel, and how you show up.
