Why Embody? Learn to trust the sweetness of surrender

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”

What kind of future could we co-create?

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?”

A Choice we have even when nothing feels certain

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”

Let go of the ‘jeans’ and set yourself free

It was circa 2005. A late Saturday afternoon. I was getting ready to go out that night and was plowing through a pile of jeans, trying to find the pair that made my thighs look slightly thinner and my rear slightly firmer, without causing my stomach to overhang on the top. Pair after pair IContinue reading “Let go of the ‘jeans’ and set yourself free”

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”

An Embodiment Practice for Winter: Embracing the Dark

We are 19 days from the shortest day of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere). The darkness is literally growing day by day, a sign that winter is here.   Yet when you think of December, darkness is rarely the first thing that comes to mind. It’s parties, and gatherings, and many festivities, sprinkled withContinue reading “An Embodiment Practice for Winter: Embracing the Dark”

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”

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?”

Sometimes your Yes doesn’t make sense

“Why don’t you move to London?”, said the guy I had been with twice. “What are you afraid of?”, he asked, noticing my hesitation to kiss him as we waited for the night bus. “Do you want to teach Embody?”, when I had never been to a class, didn’t teach movement, and “wasn’t a dancer”.Continue reading “Sometimes your Yes doesn’t make sense”

Me, my yoga mat, and God

Amoeba. That’s what the first half of this year felt like. Parts of my life were dropping like flies and I was left with just me. A single-celled ‘me’, without a defined shape, that could just about slink my way across the floor before it used up all its energy. Taking action, but not really clearContinue reading “Me, my yoga mat, and God”
