Practice Series: Let the Rebel Spirit Move You

The theme for this month’s practice series is the REBEL. The last two weeks, we’ve explored our rebel selves through writing and vocal exercise. This week we’re taking a different approach—dropping deep into the body to connect with that rebel spirit in a more primal, kinesthetic way. The idea is to move however feels authentic and…


Practice Series: How to Burn Through Judgment

The theme for this month’s practice series is BURNING THROUGH, and we’re drawing inspiration from deep earth. When we look at any given landscape, the overall shape and view is determined by the size and shape of the earth underneath it. Whether it’s soaring mountains or flat plains, it’s the firm earth that gives it form.  …


Burn Through Fear with the Warmth of Presence

Let's look deep into the earth for inspiration on finding the place of purity and power inside ourselves. Take a moment and become aware of the earth under your feet. And now go a bit deeper—what’s underneath that? Keep going deeper. What’s there, holding all of us?   An ocean of lava. Fiery, pure, radiant, pulsing….


Dance Magic, Dance!

The theme for this month’s practice series is INVOKING. This week’s practice is a full-body invocation, inviting goodness into the world with our movement. For me, this kind of movement is a prayer—it is a way for me to invite in whatever I most want to embody and bring into this world. It’s different each day—some…


Practice Series: Speak Into What Matters

The theme for this month's Practice Series is NATURE. This month we’ve deepened our connection to nature by listening to and creatively invoking the elements.

Practice Series: Turn Your Love Into Action

The theme for this month's Practice Series is NATURE. Being a steward of nature can feel immensely overwhelming. This week we’re going to make our love for the earth concrete in a simple, connected, practical way.  Throughout this month, we’ve connected to an element we are drawn to deepening our relationship with. If you haven’t already…


Practice Series: Strike a Pose

The theme for this month's Practice Series is PLAY.  It’s easy to get into routines, which tend to become habits that over time become ruts and eventually make us downright rigid. One of the many definitions of play is “movement.” Just think how a rope has “play” if you can wiggle it. Making some wiggle room…


Practice Series: Speak from Your Heart

The theme for this month's Practice Series is VOICE.  The intention of this practice is to consciously express yourself from your heart. This could be in an area where you have tended to hold back, or in an area that is habitual but where you want to bring more heart awareness. By doing this process…


Practice Series: Free Up Your Voice

The theme for this month's Practice Series is VOICE. Your spoken and written voice is a powerful tool, but when it becomes locked behind fear, sorrow, anger, or stress, it can feel difficult or downright impossible to express yourself. Emotions are important indicators that something is up for us that we need to listen to,…


Practice Series: Uncover Your Full Voice

The theme for this month's Practice Series is VOICE. The intention of this week’s 5-minute journaling exercise is to explore your relationship with your voice, so that you can uncover what (if anything) holds you back from your full feminine expression.  Practice:  Bring your awareness to your body. Take three full breaths, allowing your breath…


Practice Series: Release Your Voice

The theme for this month's Practice Series is VOICE. Over the next five weeks, we'll explore our creative voice, cultivate self-expression, and hone the ability to mindfully speak our truth.   In our everyday lives, we sometimes keep a sound barrier around ourselves—swallowing or choking back certain aspects of our experience and interaction with the world. (Ever…
