What Grounds You?

I’ll ask you first: what grounds you? What helps you to feel on the ground, to feel mentally and emotionally stable, to be “sensible and realistic” (acc. to Merriam Webster!)? Take a moment and feel what grounded is like in your body. For me grounded feels soothing. It feels like being at home in my […]

What Sustains You?

The word sustain means to strengthen or support. No one experiences this essential life underpinning in the same way. Our life experiences (and innate temperament) shape the ways we interface with what buoys us. For years I thought that what sustained me was success, and being liked, and I chased both of these like my […]

What Wakes You Up?

In this year of questions, April asks “What Wakes You Up?” As the earth wakes up from its winter slumber, can we inquire into this ourselves? Waking up is a term often used to speak about spiritual transformation. We are asleep, and then we wake up to the divine within us, or to the true […]

With all that I do and with all that is going on in the world, I’ve found it essential to hone in, moment-to-moment, on […]

New Class, New Year

January – it’s the time many of us look at our habits and patterns and consider what’s working and what’s not. Some make resolutions, some do a cleanse, others resolve to have no resolutions! Over the years I have worked with many different models of discipline, and in 2017 the big change I’ll be committed to is […]

Waking Up

On November 9th America “woke up” to a new President-elect, and what, to some, felt like a new country. Some were surprised, some were not. Many felt disoriented, depressed or in shock, many did not. For some, the election news raised deep concerns about liberty, freedom of speech, and personal safety. For others, those concerns […]
