“You can have it all!” is a lie!

You can’t!   My goddess, I used to live by the idea that the only limitations are the ones we create in our minds. I was young and naive. And honestly, I had no idea what I was talking about.   Oh! The humility!   Before I became a mama, and even through the first couple of years, I really believed that I could do it all. That I could continue to blossom in the career I had worked so [...]

With Great Freedom…

The other day I was driving with the kids back from the beach. Rush hour. We took the small streets, trying to avoid big traffic. The light was turning golden, and the way that it moved through the branches of the Jacaranda trees was spectacular. Still some purple woven through them. Dance in their stance.   I reached for my water bottle and took a sip. Sand. Sand in my teeth. You’re gonna maybe think I’m weird, but in that [...]

Born This Way – Blessings And Bummers Bound Together

A contemplation and a tale of Summer Solstice    We’re slow on weekend mornings. The kids try to get us out of bed. We refuse. It starts with our toddler. He has very sophisticated ways to try to get us to get up. Like screaming really loudly in our ears. Or sit on our heads. Or pull on my nipple. Or drop a water bottle on Andrew’s head. Then his sister comes to the rescue. And she has a lot [...]

Reclaim Tradition, Receive Yourself

Shavuot   It smells like peaches. And freedom. Summer Break is knocking on the door. The air feels warmer and the anticipation of beach days and lounging and lazy late afternoons is tickling skin and soul. Everyone is dressed in white. There are bales of hay and flower crowns. My mom and I are making blintzes and laughing together in the kitchen.   I have beautiful childhood and teenhood memories of Shavuot.   It was never about religion, and always [...]

Summer Solstice Somatic Ceremony

Do you need a boost of bounty, and beauty, and bare-feet, and bold colors? Welcome to Summer Solstice!   This holiday is an invitation into lush and creative self-expression. It is the call to your abundant nature.   Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, and the first day of Summer. The power of the Sun - the energy of life, the radiance of light, the generous giving spirit of love – is at its peak.   This [...]

Time Bending

What’s the area of your life that feels the most out of control for you?   I can name a few things here. We really are in control of so little, aren’t we? But if I had to choose the one main thing, it would be Time.   It’s the heartbreaking beauty of watching my kids growing up so fast, too fast, perfectly appropriately on time, I guess, but too fucking fast!!!! There’s a letting go that needs to happen [...]

Girl Boss Gone Bully

#GrilBoss has been trending for a while. It had always struck me as a good slogan. Women Empowerment is suuuuuuper important to me! Girls and women taking back what belongs to them – power, autonomy, choice – is beyond necessary. It’s a serious issue that cannot be taken lightly. Women’s Rights still need to be fought for. Just look at Alabama. We are still on the battlefield, people!   There’s a sexiness to Girl Boss. Not the kind that is [...]

Beltane Somatic Ceremony (and a new moon in Taurus)

At the mid point between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice, while the light quickly gains momentum and reaches fast towards its peak, and the days become warmer, the earth spins herself into her fertility goddess form.   Beltane is a celebration of fertility, creativity, aliveness, passion, sensuality, wildness, and magic. Nature is bursting with life force. Mother Earth wears her green gown. Flowers decorate her lushness. The animal kingdom is hosting its mating ball. The Stag and the Goddess, Beauty [...]

Twists. Sacrums. Motherhood.

Twists. Sacrums. Motherhood.   Motherhood is a twisty road. Stunning views unfold as you climb the highs of your journey. As you descend, the valleys take you down and in, to the unfamiliar, disorientating, confusing territories of your soul. Untold stories of a well known path, walked by many before, and by no one. Who you are you are yet to discover. Where you’re going you no longer know. There is an instability breathing this role alive. And yet your [...]

A Little Goes A Long Way

I laid there so agitated. She wasn’t falling asleep. I could hear her breath so awake. And he was just all over the place. Switching sides like a maniac – right breast, left breast, right, left, right, left… SO ANNOYING! Go to sleep, little guy!   Yes, he’s almost two. Yes I still nurse him to sleep. Yes she’s six, and yes, I still cuddle her into her dreams. It’s our sweetest moment of the day. It’s when we get [...]
