The only way is both through the struggle and up. May we choose this course.​

I am Thankful for: Hope

Hello! I just stumbled upon a video that touched my heart. The video was created by the Chino Hills High School choir. They had a performance this week that was canceled. However, the students did the next best thing, they came together digitally to sing for a larger audience. The song they sang could not…

Wisdom Wednesday #89 – What We Care About

It’s 1AM in my part of the world as I write this post. This is the bit of quiet time that I get to unwind from the day with this new, temporary normal. I don’t have anxiety, but I have been more anxious in the past few days. There are so many variables. There is…

Awakened In Loving Gratitude

I am wide awake. I facilitated a night time Yoga Nidra for my sister (the doc student) on Tuesday, before she left town to go back home. After the Nidra, I gave myself time to wind down and reset before I went to sleep. As I laid down to sleep thoughts circled my mind. I…

The Union of Love and Peace

I am in a current month long Meditation on Love and Peace. Since the month began, I have been sharing a wisdom a day on Instagram. Since February 2015, I have dedicated the month to writing about Love. I first wrote a series of posts about different types of love, which evolved into a weekly…

Mindful Monday #178 – What is Right?

Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe Out. We have had a lot of challenging news, over the past few weeks. It feels like it’s all becoming far too common. I was trained in Level 1 of Trauma Resiliency in March, and since then trauma is another lens in which I see the world. I hope…

The Legacy of Mom

Two years ago I did an ancestral meditation and a womb healing with a Shaman. The image below reminds me of the womb meditation because I learned that when a baby is born they are born with all their eggs. This means that we have each been in the wombs of our grand mother’s which…

Wisdom Wednesday #86 – What Does Love Look Like?

It’s Wednesday, February 28th and the last day of my Love and Attachment Meditation, which was exclusive to Instagram. I am both excited and a little sad that this is the end of this meditation series. When I set out to meditate daily on Love and Attachment, I was unsure. Could I meditate on this…

Wisdom Wednesday #87 – The Person You Should Really Marry

“I married everyone in sight except the one person I needed to marry to have a great relationship.” – Tracy McMillan It’s Wednesday and Valentine’s and boy do I have a wisdom for you! This is one of the best wisdoms that emerged when I meditated on marriage last year. That meditation brought so much…

Wisdom Wednesday #86 – The Dangers of Closing Your Heart

“You can only accept the love outside of you, at the level you accept it within yourself.” – Kyle Cease In 2016, I was worked on 2nd Unit for the feature film Jason Bourne. During production of that movie, I lived in a casino in Las Vegas for two months. There is nothing glamorous about…

Lessons from Love

Happy Sunday! We are now four days into February. For a long time I would dread this month and I hated Valentine’s Day because it reminded me of my aloneness. Back then, I only felt truly lonely on Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I don’t know when I transmuted that loneliness? Perhaps it was when…

Tune #46 – The Love Wouldn’t Die

Have you ever felt like you were going to die? Or like you were dying? I am not talking about putting yourself in harms way, having a terminal illness or hypochondria. I’m talking about death to your former self or the life that you know/ knew. This may sound, way out of left field, in…

Mindful Monday #166 – When Spirit Emerges

Happy Monday! I held my first of many public councils and I am on such a high. My heart was so deeply warmed by the yoga studio, the council participants and what emerged in the space. I have so much vision for this space, I deeply believe in it and I have experienced continually the…

Mindful Meditation #163 – Love them Just As They Are

I went to the Museum of Broken Relationships on a whim. The museum as described by the museum itself “is a global crowd-sourced project.” It has permanent museums in Los Angeles and Zagreb, Croatia. This museum has traveling exhibits that have been all over the world. People send in artifacts/ relics from their broken relationship…
