A Blessing for Healing from Theft

Last week my purse was stolen out of the trunk of my car as I was hiking in Santa Fe, my new home. I’ve traveled all over the world by myself and have never had my property stolen - I’ve lost my fair share of items, and surprisingly often had them returned. So it was [...]

Being Open to Love, I am Safe

Opening up to love can feel scary…as often we relate that opening to the possibility of experiencing pain or disappointment or frustration. Right now I’m finding that when we attach the experience of love to a person or an outcome, that’s often where pain enters. Yet as I open myself up to love in its [...]

365 Days of Love Letters to Myself

Boundaries and Energy Management

It's that time of year when we often find ourselves interacting with those who may put us outside of our comfort zone. And it can create some beautiful opportunities for growth and learning, as we see relatives and old friends we may not see very frequently. It can be helpful to remember that we do [...]

What’s Your Word for 2016?

Lately, as I approach the new year, I've been selecting a theme I'd like to invoke for the coming year. At last night's solstice ritual we each selected a word, going round in circle sharing it and lighting a small candle that each woman took home with her to represent the birth of the light [...]

Women’s Circle Closing and Winter Solstice

Held my last women's circle in San Diego tonight before my move. We celebrated the coming solstice as well as the full moon in Cancer on Christmas Day. We honored endings and rebirth, which was so perfect for this new journey I'm preparing to embark on. I kept waiting to feel more sadness in coming [...]

Creamy Spiced Carrot and Zucchini Soup Recipe

Sometimes I look in my fridge and groan, wondering why I actually have to deal with the whole "food thing." Lol. But other times I'm pleasantly surprised when inspiration strikes as I realize I have veggies that need using and an idea of how to use them! I threw together this really simple soup, which [...]
