Give thanks AND forgive, especially today.

Happy Thanksgiving! To be honest, I cringe a bit when I think of what this holiday was truly intended to celebrate. It’s been so long ago, that the true history of Thanksgiving has been distorted and forgotten. I choose to remind people of the reality of this “holiday” so that history doesn’t repeat itself. It’s a marker for the pillage and genocide that the Native Americans suffered. So perhaps today is also about forgiveness too…

Lessons learned from LA Fire Evacuation

Since Friday I have been evacuated from my beautiful home in Topanga. As the fires continue in Los Angeles, it’s unclear when I’ll return. Despite being displaced from home it has been a rich time filled with lessons and a deepening of community. It was frightening to wake up without electricity and cell phone service. I packed a bag, grabbed the most important things and drove out of the canyon. When I saw the smoke coming over the mountain I gasped.

Your way isn’t right, but neither is mine...

One aspect of personal development is about taking responsibility for our life and actions. It’s also about opening our minds and hearts to other ways of thinking, living and being. Each one of us is a product of the family we were born into, as well as the culture and city we grew up in. Education, jobs and life experience also play a role in how we view the world. What seems normal to one person could be totally foreign to another. Who’s to say who’s right and who’s wrong?

Living Beyond Injustice

Though injustice is a part of life, I feel we have the capacity to transform it, prevent it from happening, learn from it, grow from it and even create opportunities from it. We can write a brighter future for humanity. We can shift our perception from being a victim and witness, to being a protagonist and example for others by choosing how we respond to situations of injustice.

The Dance Floor is My Teacher

I love to dance. Dance is my medicine. It’s therapy. Food for our soul. It’s something we humans have done since the beginning of time. It’s written in our DNA. What happened to this lost art that allows us to embody our prayers, let go of tension and stress and release what is no longer serving us? Why have people stopped moving to the drum when it’s a natural antidepressant and teaches us about relating with ourselves and others?

What is the Awakening of the Divine Feminine?

Many people talk about this as the awakening of humanity into greater consciousness. Part of this awakening of consciousness also includes the awakening of the divine feminine (and the divine masculine too). I’d like to highlight the awakening of the divine feminine, because for so long the feminine was suppressed in our culture, and in some cultures it still is today, and why it's so important it is awakening.

Unhappy with society? Life? Let’s create something new…

On social media all I see are people complaining about the current government system and about what is happening in the world. Much energy wasted on complaining about everything, but what is actually being done about? People want change.

Conscious Money Talk

Money is one of those things most people don’t like to talk about. Interestingly so, because money is a big part of our current reality. Most people allow it to decides every aspect of their lives. Most people measure their success and worthiness based on much money they make and have. What if money was actually more of an energetic flow with internal and external factors?

Life–Union of Masculine + Feminine–Quest 6

The union of the masculine and feminine is not just about sex. Our entire reality, as well as each one of us as individuals, is composed of a dance between the masculine and feminine. The union of the masculine and feminine creates life. Both the masculine and feminine within ourselves is needed to create a life we love. Being and doing. Flowing and deciding. Art is a beautiful example of creation that requires both our masculine and feminine nature. Even relationships between men and women from a non-sexual standpoint are important for the co-creation of life...

Balance of the Masculine–Quest 5.

As individuals and as a collective, we will know the greatest peace and joy, when the masculine and feminine energies become balanced–both within ourselves and in society. This is the Utopia many of us seek. When in balance the masculine is admirably strong, decisive, confident, focused, direct and action focus, with logical, linear and leadership ways of relating.

2017 Wish for Humanity

Just before the clock struck midnight, I spoke aloud my wish for humanity for 2017… I wish for humanity to continue to awaken to the divinity of who they are. For humans to realize that this physical reality is a game, and that we get to create whatever we want. I wish for humans to realize how powerful we are. We are tapped into limitless potential. We can create any life we desire... The "how to" tools are available to everyone.

The Purpose of Living in Community

“Why would anyone want to live in community?” some of you may be thinking. “Seems kind of hippy dippy.” others may be thinking. Do I think community is beneficial for everyone? Yes. Do I think it’s challenging? Yes. Most importantly living in community is a spiritual gym. How compassionate can we be when someone eats our last banana? Community is the perfect barometer to measure where we are on the spiritual journey. It provides us with the perfect container to continue to grow and evolve into our brightest selves.

Will Human Suffering Ever End?

Human suffering is very prevalent and is happening for many reasons. People are beginning to feel something isn’t right. They know that life should not be full of pain and suffering. It has become a material, masculine driven world. Though it wasn’t always like this. There was a time when peace and harmony existed with oneself, each other and the Earth. There is a way to get back there. And it’s already happening.

Vipassana: 10 Days of Silence Revisited

“I feel so much more love and compassion.” I sobbed through tears as Noble Silence completed on the 10th day. “I’m releasing something.” I said to Samia, the French Moroccan woman who had been sleeping in the room across from mine. “Breathe it out.” said Samia in her beautiful accent. “This is strong medicine.” “She’s right.” I thought to myself. I never considered Vipassana to be medicine, but it is just that.

A Loving Reminder: The Power of Connection

As I recently shared with you in my Burning Man post, I have discovered the power of community and connection in a whole new light. Community, and the deep connections within them, are reminders of who we are. Choose to be around those who truly see who you are. Those who smile to see you blossom. Those who inspire new ideas and endeavors, painting your life with more color and excitement. Let’s elaborate a bit more on why connection with another human is so important...

Learn From the Elders: 5 Ways to Avoid Aging and Disease

A wise old man once told me, “You gotta keepa movin’!” in his heavy Italian accent. Elders are the wise ones. They have the life experience to be an example with many lessons learned. Even if they don’t claim to be or appear to be wise, we can observe their lives and draw our own conclusions. Inspired by the elders, check out these 5 ways to avoid aging and disease.
