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”

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”

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”

Are you dancing with, or running, your business?

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 moreContinue reading “Are you dancing with, or running, your business?”

A not-so-new way to recharge your Love life

Yesterday was Sunday and I didn’t write like I said I would. I woke up planning to, but as the day went on, I realized there was something more important to be doing than writing. Doing nothing. If the idea of ‘Sunday as a day of rest’, or ‘keeping the Sabbath day holy’, grates youContinue reading “A not-so-new way to recharge your Love life”

Cutting myself some slack

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 USContinue reading “Cutting myself some slack”

When Wisdom Speaks

I’m in the middle of pulling together an Embody event in London and I’m being tested. I’ve got a person who’s a Yes and I don’t have space lined up. This is backwards. It’s not how I like to operate. I want the details ironed out first so I can announce to the world withContinue reading “When Wisdom Speaks”

Embodying your No… First steps out of fear and into Love

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”

Sometimes ‘No’ Feels like Sh*t

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 wasContinue reading “Sometimes ‘No’ Feels like Sh*t”

Bumping up against pain and shame

I’ve been feeling a lot lately. Between the unexpected passing of my father-in-law, other losses that friends are going through, the Kavanaugh – Ford hearing, the results, Trump’s response, the reactions from my social media family, the stories of women in my life who are speaking out about the abuse they have experienced, the storiesContinue reading “Bumping up against pain and shame”
