There was this piece of me—a young, vulnerable, desperate piece of me—who begged for someone to finally just tell me who the hell I was supposed to be, or do, or what my life was supposed to be about. Every time life intensified, waves of hysteria would swell from deep within me, the fear that I’d get it wrong… that I couldn’t trust myself to know what was true for me. I felt terrified that, without external guidance, my life would be wasted.

But then I started to explore what one of my early teachers called “the spirituality of the self”. I studied the way I reacted to the world around me, the way I allowed certain relationships, circumstances, and experiences to affect me. I learned I was powerful, far more powerful than I’d ever imagined, and that I could change reality by changing the way I was showing up in the world. In time, I released what no longer served me and made space for my truth to become my life. The artist, the lover, the priestess, the mother, the healer, the dancer, the writer . . . one discovery at a time, I hosted a reunion of the pieces of my soul.

This transformation was possible because of the supports I cultivated for myself along the way.  My blog is an extension of my journals. I use it to share the lessons I’ve learned, powerful resources, and inspiring stories of my clients’ transformations. Dig in and find the information and inspiration you need today and keep coming back when you need another dose!

Love Offerings: The Co-Creation of Support

We live in a powerful time. This work, these sacred collaborations, transform not only you, but also me and all that we touch with our respective lives. Whether it’s an article that you read, a book club you join, or private sessions that we share, we co-create the experiences we desire—ones that send ripples out into the world.

The further I lean into these co-creative experiences, I find that they fit less and less into the traditional business model that this business was originally built upon. I do have a fee structure, but often much of what I do is a love offering from me to you. While this new way of being together feels true for me, there are still financial realities to which I must tend: shelter, food, and the care of two remarkable teenagers. Many “experts” keep telling me that I can’t do this—that I can’t just show up and serve, and then expect my needs and desires to be met with ease.

I’m not willing to accept that. I will not accept that our support of one another has to fit into the traditional business model upon which this business was originally built.

If you have been moved by the power of our collaborations, or if you simply want to support the work that I am doing, and want to make a love offering, I would welcome and celebrate that. I will use your gift to continue to do this work. I will make sure that my needs and desires are met, that my children are provided for, and that I wake up every day looking for ways to use who I am to remind others of their wholeness.

As always, if you need support, I’m here.
