Lessons in Patience

Lessons in Patience

Last year about this time my partner, Peter, and I decided we were ready to move forward on the remodel we’ve been wanting to do to our house since we moved in years ago. The roof has leaked for too long, the bathroom floors are rotting away from water damage and my pink laminate counter […]

My hearts desires are overflowing my time. Happy Equinox

My hearts desires are overflowing my time. Happy Equinox

I was on a coaching call with a client last month and we developed the idea that we have a heart of desires bigger than our time capacity. It’s kind of like having eyes bigger than your stomach. We explored that one of the hardest parts of being a passionate, driven person is having to choose between […]

Turning off summer brain

Turning off summer brain

School’s back in session and I’ve managed to get out of bed and get my kids to school for almost two weeks now. It hasn’t been easy, I’ll tell you that. I feel like I’ve gone from sunny river living to foggy mornings- both outside and in my head. It’s not been easy for my […]

Staying anchored

Staying anchored

This spring and summer, the simple act of drying flowers has become a ritual. It takes very little time, but I engage in it everyday. I look outside to see the flowers growing. Mainly, I enjoy their color, texture and smell, yet I’m also keeping watch to I know if it’s time to gather the […]

I feel the call of summer

I feel the call of summer

The summer solstice has just passed and the warm dry air is arriving, pushing away the gentleness of spring, the finicky nature of spring’s cold, then hot, then rainy days. I feel the heat on my body and the suns rays which can burn my sensitive skin. In some ways, I feel like I’m waking […]

Tricky Thoughts

My clients that do the deepest work with me know more about their thoughts than they did before. They learn how to be with them, observe them and even love them whether the thoughts are true or not, helpful or hurtful, positive or negative. This is the same personal work I do everyday.  The work […]

It’s been a crazy world swirling around me over the last few months

…I’ve got not time. …I can’t possibly get that completed. …There’s no way I can fit anything else in my day.   I’m sure many of you have had similar thoughts before, maybe even right now in your life, or maybe last year or last month.  Well, I’m right in the middle of crazy right […]

Digital clutter’s so easy to hide

With the availability of cloud storage, bigger and bigger phone memories, and plus amazing computer capabilities; it’s easy to just keep collecting digital stuff.

Everyday rituals

Everyday rituals

I’m not the kind of spiritual practitioner or person who can stick with the same daily ritual for months on end. I get bored, the rituals don’t fill me up as much, or my sleep cycle gets out of wack (thanks insomnia). And yet I crave those touchstones in my mornings and evenings, those bookends […]
