Let’s turn this old story on its head and find a reason to celebrate.
It’s election day in my home country and I’m feeling all the feels. So I made an Embody playlist to move to. It’s called Vote for Love. You can find it on Spotify. If you’re feeling unsettled, anxious, hopeless, helpless, and not sure you can handle a particular outcome, try this on. Before you vote,Continue reading “An Embody playlist: Vote for Love”
My Monday mornings start with a 30 minute phone call with a friend, opening the week in prayerful contemplation. Today led us to the book “A Return to Love” by Marianne Williamson; it opened to this prayer. “I surrender this to you. May it be used for your purposes. I ask that my heart byContinue reading “Why Embody? Learn to trust the sweetness of surrender”

There’s another ‘Conversations on Being Human’ to share with you.

I’ve been reading that this moon invites us to reflect on the relationshipsContinue reading “For when your ‘stuff’ starts coming up”
It’s a new moon today, and while I’ve been following the moon’s cycle for a while now, I don’t normally harp on about it too much. This one feels different though. I’ll tell you why. Yesterday an email landed in my inbox from Chani Nicholas. I bought her book, You Were Born for This, recently,Continue reading “What kind of future could we co-create?”

I was supposed to be in London today, preparing for an Embody your Feminine Leadership event scheduled for tomorrow, yet here I am in my home, sitting at my new upcycled writing desk, writing to you, trusting that this is where I am meant to be. I am feeling loads, as I’m sure you areContinue reading “A Choice we have even when nothing feels certain”
