My sweet friends – I am writing this little blog to tell you about something that is very important to me. I am offering a workshop on May 5th at Perennial Yoga and Meditation in Fitchburg, WI at 1:00pm. This workshop is the culmination of a year of work that I have been doing on […]Continue reading
I am a wild woman.
My curly messy hair shoots out of my head like Medusa’s snakes. There is a fire in my belly and a rapture in my heart. I have strong shoulders to support your truth and big breasts for you to lay your head.Continue reading
I am a rebel.
I have body confidence.
In an age where we are bombarded with thousands of messages daily telling us how broken, ugly and imperfect we are, having body confidence makes you a rebel, a warrior, a goddess, a lighthouse.Continue reading
Today, a tall beautiful curly-haired goddess approached me after yoga class and told me that she read my blog. And has been reading for awhile. I can’t even begin to tell you the thrill I felt, knowing that she read my words. Even though I know several of you are out there, I still feel shocked when people come up to me and tell me they’ve read my articles. It will never get old.Continue reading
Yesterday, I taught a yoga class at noon. The room was warm, mats were laid out in a random pattern on the floor, people started to settle in. I had burned some palo santo, so there was a woody, somewhat sensual smell that wafted through the room. I was creating a sacred space for these yogis to breathe, pray, lay it all down. As I watched them settling down on their mats, I was filled with a deep feeling of respect for their presence in that room.Continue reading
She walks into the room with her shoulders held back and her heart leading the way. She’s dressed in a simple dress and her hair is pulled back from her face. Her eyes light up with a twinkle when you look at her and smile. She is warm and inviting.Continue reading

This morning, a beautiful Sunday sleep-in morning, I woke with a busy mind. I started to worry about money. I started to worry about the people I needed to email and send notes to. I remembered that we never sent out thank you notes for my son’s birthday gifts. I started to criticize myself for not being better at following through with things. What in the world is going on with ISIS? Or is it ISIL?I felt scared and anxious, so then I started to beat myself up for feeling fear. Happy Sunday morning. It was 5:45am.Continue reading
My cancer doesn’t get a fun run. It doesn’t get a tee-shirt or a fundraiser. My cancer doesn’t get a magnetic ribbon for the car.
In fact, you’d better stop reading this blog if you can’t handle the word vagina.
Right after I write this post, I am heading to a yoga class. SLOWLY.
I’ve been running at about 100mph for the last few months and it’s really starting to catch up with me. Last night my husband and I had a huge “come to Buddha” meeting, where we talked a great deal about energy. Specifically MY energy and how it was leaking out all over the place like a garden hose with 100000 pin holes in it.Continue reading
