The balancing act between fiercely independent and deeply connected

I’m sitting here writing this on a late Saturday afternoon eating a bowl of chips (also known as chunky fries) at a pub, after a 5 hour jaunt across the Brecon Beacons. A day out on my own. Just me, an Ordinance Survey map, and my heightened sense of directional awareness. It felt good toContinue reading “The balancing act between fiercely independent and deeply connected”

A sustainable way to create your own rhythm and flow

It was the last of our 36 calls in my 1 year mentorship program with Embody founder, Nadia Munla. We were in that sweet spot of looking back and celebrating all that had unfolded, as well as looking forward to what was on the horizon. She invited me to move through this transition with theContinue reading “A sustainable way to create your own rhythm and flow”

Food, Faith & the Feminine Part 3

I’ve been trying to nail down what it is about the feminine that has strengthened my faith. It’s not straightforward, but here goes. (Note: I’m using the word feminine until a better one comes around, not to shame or discount the masculine, or perpetuate a binary view. For now though, it’s simpler to start offContinue reading “Food, Faith & the Feminine Part 3”

Food, Faith & the Feminine Part 2

I couldn’t do that version of Faith anymore. I remember the exact moment. I was sitting in church on a Sunday morning. The week before, a woman in the congregation gave a beautiful talk about fear and Love, and how to lean into Love. Amen Sister. This week another member of the congregation stood inContinue reading “Food, Faith & the Feminine Part 2”

Redefining Success and Failure (And breaking my own rules)

28 days ago I made a commitment to myself that I would write for 40 days straight; the next phase of this cyclical living that I’m experimenting with. The icing on the cake was to publish; have some accountability to the world. Day 28 and I’ve stuck with this for 19 days. That’s 67% ifContinue reading “Redefining Success and Failure (And breaking my own rules)”

The Collision of Food, Faith, and the Feminine

I am a woman, 39 years old, from very white ancestry, who inherited a level of educational and economical privilege. Twenty years ago I faced the first major challenge and failure in my life. My body was not performing the way I wanted it to. It did not look good enough and would not runContinue reading “The Collision of Food, Faith, and the Feminine”

How to embody soulful feminine leadership

I’m sitting in my friend’s gorgeous apartment overlooking South London on a Friday night. My body is exhausted from a full day of embodiment work with two amazing women. My heart is full from witnessing the fullest expression of themselves. Doing this work I get confronted. I ask other people to connect to the voiceContinue reading “How to embody soulful feminine leadership”

What it takes to let your money start working for you

  I started reading a book over the weekend that is just slightly blowing my mind. It’s a money book, which to be honest I’m surprised I’m that jazzed about. I eat up any book that tells a good story about emotional or spiritual growth, and although I’ve read a few money related books thatContinue reading “What it takes to let your money start working for you”

How Embodied Feminine Leadership = Just Be You

“Embody your Feminine Leadership”. This is the title I gave to an upcoming event, and you know when you see something and think, ‘Yeah that sounds good and all’, but you actually have no idea what that means? I feel like that’s kinda the case here. So I will attempt to explain. Let’s start withContinue reading “How Embodied Feminine Leadership = Just Be You”

For when you think you screwed it up; How you can’t do it wrong

It’s funny how your shit follows you. Today I found myself reliving a scenario from 8 years ago when I got slammed for what I thought was doing the right thing, and I was told it wasn’t good enough. I had overheard at a dinner party that there was a misprint of some PR merchandise thatContinue reading “For when you think you screwed it up; How you can’t do it wrong”
