To Breathing, to Singing, to Dancing like a Goddess

Two weeks ago I began yoga teacher training.While I knew it would have an impact on my life physically, I really had no idea what an impact it would make on my life emotionally. When you think of yoga training, you immediately assume you will be moving through sun salutations and sweating it out in downward dog. But, as it turns out, the asanas (or the yoga poses) are only one small part of the…

You Are Divine Love and Other Things I Learned at I Can Do It

This weekend I attended my first spiritual conference, sponsored by Hay House, called "I Can Do It 2014." Leading up to the weekend, I had experienced a number of big life changes and it seemed like this conference could not have come at a better time.

An Ode to My Roots

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I am walking through a field of dragonflies. The hum of cicadas lingers in the air. Today I am spending my lunch break here, with my heels digging into the dirt. It doesn’t smell particularly nice and it’s hot, but I know this is exactly where I need to be in this moment in time. A wise woman told me this weekend that I need to spend time building my roots. She said I am…

10 Practical Ways To Find Your Happy

So often people go through their entire lives searching for happiness. It's funny because happiness is so totally abstract. It's like a Salvador Dali seen for the first time by a middle school student in art class. Happiness is like a symphony heard for the very first time. Or a string of stars spread across the sky.

The Life You Want to Live

I met an agronomist in a bar one night and he had given up his 9 to 5 to live on a boat for a year and sail around the world. This man was incredibly intelligent. He had built his business from scratch, a successful nationwide company selling environmental solutions and hydroponic. And after 35 years he decided enough was enough. He was going to live the life he wanted to live. My father spent…
