Are You Celebrating?

Hello love, What are you proud of today? I make a point of asking my mentoring clients and group members what they’re proud of and/or excited about as we begin each session. Why? Because, it’s important to recognize all that we have to celebrate – and then celebrate it! MostContinue reading

How To Feel Better…Literally.

This weekend I found myself having a heart to heart conversation with my four and half year-old son about feelings. We were talking about how cool it is that our bodies and minds can feel so many feelings all at once and that sometimes our feelings feel so big thatContinue reading

Want To Know My Secret?

How often would you say you get described as calm, authentic, patient, and grounded?   My answer? Daily. At least once, usually more.   For an embarrassingly long time I brushed off these words because I felt like they downplayed or somehow took away from the excitability, passion, purpose, drive,Continue reading

What Good is Peace and Love on Earth if it’s Exclusive?

This weekend a group organized to fly the confederate battle flag atop multiple parking garages in my hometown of downtown Charleston, SC. One of those parking garages is one block away from the Mother Emanuel AME church where a white supremacist man murdered nine church members after a prayer serviceContinue reading

Are You Sick Of Forcing It?

You know that feeling you get when you’re halfway working on a project and halfway checking out by checking social media or distracting yourself with busywork? That feeling sucks.   Unfortunately, it can also become our default mode of working. Eventually it becomes such a normal way of feeling thatContinue reading

Stronger. Not Sorry.

I’ve received a few messages lately that begin with “I’m sorry to bother you” or “I’m sorry, but I really need to ask you…”   I’d like to challenge all of us to eliminate the words “I’m sorry” from our communication unless we’re truly making amends for wrong doing.  Continue reading

It’s Time To Stand Up.

Today I want to share with you an excerpt from my first book, Living Life on Purpose. It seems extra relevant right now. So, here is the beginning of the first chapter, Standing At The Precipice: Lessons on Dharma.   The Bhagavad Gita is a 700-verse Hindu scripture found withinContinue reading

Are You Inspired?

Make time to inspire yourself. Last night I took a dance class for the first time in about seven years. It was amazing! I left feeling connected to my body in a way that I don’t feel in any other movement modality. I’m not at the same “level” that I was sevenContinue reading

Your New Super Sneaky Self-Care List

As 2016 winds to a close I’ve been thinking a lot about the foundations of holistic health and work/life/all the things “balance.”   What I am noticing is that self-care seems to be the most important foundational piece of many areas of my life, but also the one that IContinue reading

How To Get What You Truly Want

This holiday season I have a challenge for you. It’s a practice that’s simple in nature but for many of us it isn’t easy. It’s the practice of truly receiving.   For a long time, I struggled with receiving on just about every level, from food to gifts to moneyContinue reading

Now Is Not The Time To Stay Small Or Shut Up.

The world needs you and now is not the time to stay small or shut up.   It’s the time to look at what habits and hang ups are holding you back and get to work on breaking through the blocks.   It won’t necessarily be easy, but it isn’tContinue reading

Commitment Without Clinging.

I am perpetually trying to get rid of 99% of the things in my house. It’s my never ending war on clutter. Why? Because I can’t focus when stuff is everywhere. I get super overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin, so I just shut down and let the laundryContinue reading

Sugar, Sex, Scandal…and Yoga?

Do you crave sugar, sex, Netflix binges, coffee, or alcohol? I do and I’m willing to bet that you do too. Perhaps your specific cravings are different, but its not a stretch to assume that you have some. We all do and many of us spend a great deal ofContinue reading
