What To Accept When You’re Accepting

I feel like it was last week when the Sycamore trees on our street started to bedeck themselves with green. Time has been spinning faster and faster. The Sycamore leaves are yellow and brown now, drying up, ready to make their annual Autumn crunchy carpet on the street. I watch these stunning trees on my walks, in awe of their ability to change, to let go, to cycle through the years without protest, to give into aging and death with [...]

Pixies & Purge

I am out in the back with the kids. They are playing with water and mud. Slippery and covered in childhood memories. The hot afternoon california Summer sun dancing on their faces with rays of youthful sparkles.    I am playing Pixies. The bluetooth speaker vibrating in the cup holder of my camp chair. “Hey! Been trying to meet you... Oooo ooo oooo ooo ooo…” Memories of cold nights on platform shoes, outside the clubs in Jerusalem of the 90’s.  [...]

Deal With The Not Ideal – A Gateway Into Your Sensitivity

We are marked by these days of uncertainty and instability. Coiling and uncoiling through this dissolutionary and possibly profoundly evolutionary phase, as we ride the waves of the unknown. Shattered and shaped and reshaped by the unusual movements of the earth beneath our feet. We are all trying to figure out how to stand, as this is a whole new ground. And it isn’t yet formed. There is no way to not be affected by the experiences of this year. [...]

Complexity, Entanglement, And The Pursuit Of Antiracism.

The times we live in. This world. Crisis. Crisis within crisis. Hope. Anger. Injustice.  Hopelessness. Pandemic. The individual. The collective. The cosmos. Relationships.  Humanity.   Past. Present. Future.   It’s complicated. It’s entangled. It’s complex.    Humans want to simplify things.  Humans created a creator so that they can explain creation.  The universe is so vast and ungraspable, and humans want to be able to “get it.” We want things to be black or white. (pun intended) It’s much easier [...]

Receive Yourself, Strengthen Yourself, And Create Yourself – Yogafying Sukkot

Hey lovely!   Life keeps getting more and more complex. Doesn’t it? We become more layered. There’s more to deal with, more responsibilities, more on our plates. We are more deeply invested in things. We are tangled up and woven in to other lives more intensely. We become more grounded in who we are. But our tendency to become more rigid increases. Our foundation is seemingly more solid. But there’s also more loss. The ground beneath us threatens to shake [...]

How To Use Your Lasso

On Some days there’s a delicious feeling flowing through your tasks. On the other days, it all feels like ass.  I cherish the delicious days. And I tend to think of my life as a gorgeous gift, sparkling with magic and love, and sprinkled with enough challenges to keep me interested, and enough fall downs to keep me humble.  Sometimes, though, life hits you hard. And your inner world undergoes a makeover. In the process, you shed, you shake, you [...]

You Are Timeless

You are timeless. Infinite. Eternal.   But you look in the mirror and there are lines that show the sign of the passing time. There’s a wrinkle in time. Many wrinkles, in fact. And that spacious conversation about eternality you had with yourself during meditation earlier this morning is erased. Fuck! You are definitely finite.   You make another cup of coffee so you can keep up with your to do list. You’re not even getting to your to do [...]
