Healing Limiting Core Beliefs & Shifting Perspectives

perception
I had a client come in recently sharing the experience of not feeling seen or loved growing up, and finding themselves as an adult continuing to have this feeling, surrounded by people they feel don't truly see them, nor can they ever seem to really find people who love them. This is an example of how as a child we formulate what reality is about via our developing human brain, and take in what is...

Receiving Support vs. Being Self Directed

twin_flame_connection
These are not mutually exclusive! I so often come across people who have said to me "I've done a lot of work on myself" and are no longer receiving outside support. They have tools, abilities to navigate many situations that come up. Maybe even supporting other people as healers, using these same tools. So they don't need ongoing support themselves. Or so they say. What the slippery bit is, howeve...

Creativity and Aging, spontaneous expression and healing

vertical-shore
CREATIVITY AND AGING, SPIRIT – EMBODIMENT – TRANSFORMATION In a wonderful anthology exploring links between Carl Jung’s Analytical Psychology and growing old, much value is given to the practice of creativity as we age. In the section on “Successful Aging”, Lionel Corbett says, “Creativity can be a form of spiritual practice; it opens us to whatever wants to emerge, trusting that there is s...

What does “Awake” really mean?

gold-light
There seems to be a buzz around the word "awaken" and many different definitions to go with it! Seeing as I chose this word to describe the work I do, I thought I might share what I see in its meaning. "Awake" has many countless layers of opening to it. I hear this word used sometimes regarding whether someone is "awake" - its a bit ironic, as that implies there is a place to arrive at. In my e...

Why be Creative?

paint pots
Have you ever thought to yourself "I'm not creative" or, "I'm creative!" and thought perhaps some people are, and some people aren't? What is the big deal about taking a workshop to learn to be more creative? I hope to dispel some myths here, and in my upcoming playshop. The reality is, we are all creative, potentially, all the time.  It takes different forms for different people. When we are bloc...

Getting High Culture

bm06-153_mardistorm cr
The other day, I was reflecting on some of my past experiences in two seemingly disparate communities I used to be a big part of, years ago. Then it hit me. They weren't so different afterall. Both communities were built around the prospect of creating the most high-vibration, loving, and intentional community each was capable of creating. Neither were sustainable. Why? Because both communities we...

Getting Big

IMG_0864_400
Last week at Esalen was a powerful process for me. I love these intuitive painting workshops as there is no end to the self-discovery that can emerge while working with one's energy.  (note: these paintings are for process, not product, please do not judge or criticize artistically) For me, I got stuck getting super attached to something I painted, an egg. I know, it might look like just an egg to...
