“I was in for an incredible and mind blowing experience without even realizing the magnitude when I put the cup to my lips and drank in the spirit of the cactus. My intention of release during the training continued as I released control, surrendering to the journey and the process of being present and in tune with nature and those around me.”Read More
“You may know about the chakras in the human body … but did you know that Mother Earth also has her own set of chakras and energy flowing through her body? As we become more connected to our energy channels within, we realize the effect that the Earth’s energy has on our own inner journey and growth.”Read More
“While facilitating transformational retreats and trainings, I like to acknowledge that there is always a beginning, middle and an end to the process. When each part is honored as an important aspect of the offering, we experience the full expression of deep creation (at the beginning), transformation (in the middle) and integration (at the end).”Read More
“Sitting with such a consistent feeling of blessed elation, I started to feel like I can’t actually call it “work” anymore. Instead, I feel it is more of an offering of the heart that is a gift from the Divine passed through me in service to the whole. I think the best word to describe this offering would be “Dharma”.”Read More

"In my eight years leading groups through transformative retreats, workshops, and teacher trainings, the tears always flow when asking questions of being faced with The Unknown: What can I give to this world? How can I unearth my true self from the false beliefs it’s buried under? How can I stand out with my skills and knowledge? How can I discover my unique gifts in this lifetime? What is my purpose, my dharma, my path?"Read More
"I wonder now, why I wanted to taste his beer. The answer comes to me and it is the same answer to many of the questions of why we try new things: curiosity. Our motivation to explore the unknown is innocent and powerful. It has led us to self-discovery. Yet, what it unearths isn’t always of light. Sometimes, our curiosity can reveal a shadow inside that we didn’t know was there."Read More

"What have you learned from your past? How has your past shaped you into the person (or bird metaphorically) that you are today? What has stopped you from spreading your wings? What obstacles have you faced that has taught you to slow down ... to heal your body, still your mind, and let your spirit soar?"

"There is so much healing, release, surrender, and connection to all of creation and to our Self that can be cultivated and celebrated and cherished and nourished through this form of prayer that Kirtan is.
And the more we connect to the Divine inside us, the more of the Divine light we have to share and give out to others as well."

"I want us to show up real, right here, right now, as is.
I want us to gather to feel all the feelings and to write all the things.
I want to walk up to shame and fear and look them in the eyes.
I want us to look into the eyes of other women, and hear them say words that we too have thought."
"Essential to creative flow is vulnerability - the courage to be seen. We often block ourselves through fear of failure, or through striving and struggling towards something that doesn’t fit. To stay in a place of flow asks for an underlying trust, and a surrender to the surge that drives us into our personal harmony. We keep it all going with momentum driven by passion and fulfillment."Read More
