“To fully understand who I am and what I am capable of, I need to always see myself in terms of a community.”  -John Hunter, public school teacher I’m allowing myself to feel today instead of writing. But I’ll write to support understanding. 😉 As I walked into the great cathedral of Good Shepherd Church […]

I am getting real here

If I am to ‘journey to self’, I feel there must be a willingness first. The willingness to actually be with myself. To take a look at myself. To get to know myself. If I am not willing, then there is no opportunity for change, healing, or growth.*I get real about this at the end […]

Muladhara in a New Light

Wild Abandon + Aparigraha

Last week in the topic around compassion, I was struck by these words out of Jack Kornfield’s book, “The Wise Heart’”: “The courageous heart is the one that is unafraid to open to life without armoring. As the poet Rilke reminds us, “Ultimately it is on our vulnerability that we depend”.” After having collected so […]


I love this simple picture of Max and Quinn.  He is holding her hand to both guide her and protect her from running into the street.  It was a reminder for compassionate acts of kindness and consideration that we can offer ourselves and each other. As we continue on the journey of the essence of […]
