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 voice … Continue reading How to embody soulful feminine leadership
My heart wants to tell you about all the books I’ve been reading and podcasts I’ve been listening to lately that are bang on, affirming what feels like a wide open path to walk forward into. My head wants to analyze what they are saying; connect the dots for myself as a way to process … Continue reading Looking at embodiment through the sign of the cross
“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 with … Continue reading How Embodied Feminine Leadership = Just Be You
“We want them to have an experience of God”, she said. She being, my mentor, coach, and teacher and founder of Embody, Nadia Munla. If you go to her website you will be greeted with an invitation to embody your pleasure, power, and play. Those are beautifully alliterated ways for your mind to wrap itself … Continue reading The sacred version of embodiment
Food. Faith. Feminine. These words keep boomeranging back to me. Five or so years ago they were on my website as the placeholders for the women that I wanted to help. Then I gave myself a reality check / had a self-doubt driven panic attack that I couldn’t do this; mostly because I had more … Continue reading Are you dancing with, or running, your business?
I’m tired of wearing hats that aren’t mine to wear. Like accountant, immigration lawyer, marketing guru, social media genius, SEO pro, management consultant. They are sexy, intriguing titles, but they aren’t me. In my 20’s my job required me to have a certain level of expertise when it came to taxes and immigration for US … Continue reading Cutting myself some slack
It’s October 28th, 2019. Thirty-nine years ago I was excavated from my mother’s womb, after 24 hours of her pushing and breathing and squeezing. I would not slide out of her body naturally. I was too big. I was 11lb something ounces and no matter how hard my mom tried, her body could not expand … Continue reading Birth
I’ve gotten frustrated with this whole ‘listen to your body’ thing when I can’t tell what the tension, discomfort, and constriction in my body is all about. It doesn’t feel good, I can’t tell if it’s my nerves or my intuition, and I don’t know how to make it go away. All I want to … Continue reading How do I know my No?
This part can be tricky. My 'No' is usually highly activated, full of anger, disappointment, hurt, and fear. It's hard to stay connected to my center and my power when I want to express No: mostly because I'm afraid of rejection.... will my No be accepted? And also the fear of the other person's reaction... … Continue reading Embodying your No… First steps out of fear and into Love
A bomb went off in my life recently; all because of one word: No. I’ve avoided saying No for most of my life. I was afraid that it would create conflict, make me look selfish, and I thought the right thing to do was to go along with what the other party wanted. Obedience was … Continue reading Sometimes ‘No’ Feels like Sh*t
