My mantra has been and IS: Rest, Nourish, Move, Be (RNMB)…yet sometimes I forget to talk about it more and more with all of you. Everyday I am shifting habits and discovering what I need to support my journey today, so I thought, why not be more diligent about it and share it with you here.Read More
HOLD THE PHONE! H O L D T H E P H O N E! Janet and I, a few weekends ago, took a trip to the newly opened Kananaskis Nordic Spa. Wouldn't you know it, I had connections at that spa which put us into contact with Vice President of Spa Development, Jennifer Buckler. It was love at first sight because this lady knows her stuff, and our experience was that much more richer.Read More
READER NOTE: I wrote this post in February and then abandoned it. It's douchey. I mean, I don't write shit like this. I've tried before, and on other social media channels to share what my current fucking mood is and what I am currently into, and my weekly vibe bullshit.Read More
Can we take a moment to pause? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10...inhale, hold, exhale, hold, and release.
That feels SO MUCH BETTER. Are you ready?
I use to abhor this time of year. Winter in general. I felt out-of-sorts, sullen, demotivated, and generally crawling in my skin.
A few years ago I got hip to living in alignment with nature in all ways and all seasons, and that included Winter.Read More
Phases and moments, shifts and dips...it's life. It's real. It's up and down for sure. But when we are not aware of, or aligned with the natural flow of our environments (internal and external), then it can seem chaotic and daunting.Read More
What I know for sure? This modern world is designed in such a way that we are always reacting. When we react, guess what? We find ourselves in the fight/flight/freeze mode. We are bombarded with deadlines, expectations from others and ourselves, negativity and violence on media, and our own judgemental mind. We juggle jobs, tasks, family, children, finances; all the while compromising our health. Isn't that NUTS! It's crazy.Read More
Today I embarked on a new journey; one that has been a bubbling desire since I can remember. Singing. Yup, flexing those vocal chords, open and vulnerable, and a little uncomfortable.Read More
Here I sit, overwhelmed in my day. September has me running around like a Rooster (it's the year of the Rooster and so is my husband, this Tiger gets exhausted from this energy). There are all these opportunities coming my way, and they cost MONEY. YUP, the big ugly M word in my vocabulary. You dig?Read More
I haven't made a point of recapping a month before. I decided that August, that damn feline, deserved an encore. And so, here are highlights, lo-lights, and in-betweens of the month, in no particular order or importance:Read More
I woke up grumpy. I am NOT a fan of getting up on other people's terms. It's a control thing, or perhaps a Taurus thing. My Monday, one of my favourite days, has been strange.Read More
When we adopt the general feeling and attitude of contentment and approach life in such a way, those annoying gnats in our life become insignificant. Truly. They are just the itch of the day that will soon go away, but by no means does it have to affect the bigger picture.Read More
I AM GRATEFUL FOR: chance meetings, friends, women, great coffee, energetic exchanges, deep sharing, vulnerability, and strong fierce mama bears. If she is reading this, then she knows I am talking about her.Read More
The full moon phase is gently slipping away - GO NOW PLEASE! Phew. So here I sit, writing after an interesting day of meetings and bumping into former colleagues, to planning a new workshop (stay tuned). And I exhale realizing I have been holding my breath, slightly. Deflate.Read More
July 21st ish, the Sun moved from Cancer to Leo. Hot, hot, hot, cat lady full of fire, movement, and confrontation. Or at least, that's how my inner feline feels...this month. How is everyone else feeling?Read More
Do you make room for movement in your day? What does your movement look like?Read More
You'd be surprised what dis-eases, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual are directly related to how we eat and how we move.Read More
Bali bound with my mom on May 5. We are here for one whole month in celebration of a very important birthday for my mother. Bali was on her bucket list and I was happy to tag along.Read More
What's been the vibe for your so far in 2017? Mine has been messy. Yup. Cafe working and a friend and former colleague popped in today. Her vibe: introverted. I can relate. Toward the end of November 2016, I slipped into deep healing and hibernation mode. I had my third blood transfusion, and my husband was away for two months.Read More
