STOP and LIVE

My dear friend Melinda who we recently held fundraisers for has been given days to weeks to live. While this is heartbreaking and feels tragic to me, it is balanced by our recent time together on a walk to a Redwood grove hidden in the midst of Orange County. After months of enduring […]

Wide open arms of love

Just when we think we ‘have things (somewhat) figured out” children fortunately continue to teach us. Sabriel, my youngest, has given me many mothering moments where I have felt relaxed and experienced AND he has also challenged me immensely to keep growing. In his sensitivity and extreme sense of dignity and self-respect, he does not […]

The God All Around Us

A guiding premise of my work is that we do not need to look to others for happiness and contentment.

We may need guidance to help us come back to center and the richness within, but the truth about what is loving for us resides within […]

Healing the Hurts of Our Past

Because we are in Maui, three hours behind on the mainland, we indulged my daughter’s request to ‘stay up until the time I was born!” Nine years ago, at 12:15am, our little Maya burst her into watery tub and my arms taking my breath away with her dark hair, ancient features and powerful essence.

Breathing in, Breathing Out

Thanks to Evan Brown, Earthroots wise man that I adore, we found ourselves at Deer Park Monastery in Escondido, CA last week for their annual family camp.

Little Body, Enormous Spirit: what my baby (in utero) is teaching me about the power of our souls

Zumba matches Iris' energy

With all of my children, I have taken time while they were in utero to connect with their spirits. With Lucas, in the midst of my anxiety about his health, I connected to a sweet, caring spirit assuring me that all was well. With Maya, I experienced very clearly […]

The Virtues of my Low Tech Pregnancy

This is my third pregnancy. The first time around I was in the ER, looking at my baby through a cervical ultrasound when 6 weeks pregnant… after I had panicked when feeling some cramping.
