LEARNING NOT TO DEAL.

Mothers and Fathers are ill-equipped to have children. Everyone is. The shift from just caring for yourself to also keeping someone else alive cannot be expressed fully in books and advice alone. You have to live into it. And what I think you may find is an overwhelming feeling of "This is unreasonable".

A CAMPAIGN FOR COMPLEXITY.

The momentum of imperfection creates the aspect of self-sustainability. Have you ever walked down the stairs and forgotten the last step? You expect the floor, but instead you find space. Your misstep creates another process. You are propelled forward in space and time.

TRUST.

Trust welcomes in the vast world of possibility. Nothing is a given. Nothing is permanent. To me, trust feels like stepping into an abyss. Not in a way of giving up but in a way of being ready. Ready to receive whatever comes forward: good, bad, horrible, beautiful. Trust cannot be broken.

THE WORLD IS WORTH THE EFFORT.

An interesting conversation goes on in my mind — whether the world has inherent momentum, like destiny, or whether by our movements we turn the hamster wheel. Whether we’re being pushed or we are a part of the pushing. In the Bhagavad Gita there is a phrase that says, "In essence, no effort is ever lost; by our effort and action we uphold the world."

MANY BODY TYPES WORK.

What we decide “looking healthy” looks like is a cultural aesthetic. Meaning that collectively we evolve to see certain attributes as favorable and better and beautiful and right. What I think is deeply interesting is that what we deem as healthy looking may or may not be healthy at all.

YOU HAVE CAPACITY.

Such a simple statement. One of those sentences so deep in meaning you can fail to receive its message. The words can fly by you, but if you pause and slow down, repeat the words, the message begins to unravel and reveal its significance.

YOU HAVE CAPACITY.

"UNLOCK" YOUR KNEES.

Did you know, that your bones don’t actually touch? They touch by proxy and are held in a connective matrix of soft tissue. In anatomy, soft tissues include things like tendons, ligaments, fascia, synovial membranes, muscles, nerves, fat, blood vessels and more. So if the bones are not fused together, then what keeps us upright?

WE NEED ADAPTATION MORE THAN EXERCISE.

Simply put: “Hunting and gathering was humanity's first and most successful adaptation, occupying at least 90 percent of human history.” - Wikipedia. In an existence of about 200,000 years, up until about 10,000 years ago, this is how our species lived. What we can draw from this simple factoid is that our life as “cultured beings” is minimal and new.

THE MEANING OF MECHANICS.

Your body is a complex living organism. It is a layered system of self-organizing cells and organs. Your body is responsive to the external environment and the many pressures and stimuli the world exerts on us, all the time. To do Life Work, the study of this vehicle is no less than absolutely necessary.

THE ART OF REGULARITY.

This article presents the value I have found in being “Regular”. In relationship with the world of extremes, I discuss the interesting angle of steadiness. The concept of consistency has offered me a life with less anxiety about the world and more trust in my agency and connection. This is a positive spin on the idea of mundane and the fullness that is inherent. Read On.

TAKE YOUR PLACE.

Since I can remember, I remember working. Working hard to get what I want and what I need. As a woman, in the midst of the long hours and not so pretty work to create what I love, I easily forgot my gracious feminine self. I do honor my resiliency as character strength. I have turned many daunting places into my advantage and have leveraged much success out of what I had available. In learning to push along, I often undervalued my place as a woman…

AWAY TO INDIA.

Our bodies can offer us perspective into this paradox. There are different branches of your Nervous System. The Autonomic Nervous System controls your vital organs. Your torso is literally dense, the intricacy of the layers of skin, fascia, muscle, bones, capillaries are almost unbelievable. Yet our sensory experience of the midsection of our body tips more towards one of spaciousness.

LINEAGE + LEGACY.

“What if we start from the premise that you are born and that is good. In the Indian Mind, as it has been heard by me…. if you are here, you have won the lottery. And in this gift of embodiment, you are also granted agency. Yoga is the processes in which you Yoke yourself meaningfully to the world and to other. Honor every ancestor before you, how their very existence gave way to yours.”

As we consider this inherent contrast, we have to take in the external stimulus we are always in relationship with. The World. The truth is that we have innovated faster than we have evolved. The Google World is much faster than we have time to process it fully.

CANDY CRUSH.

We learn to engage in relationships that offer us something. We all have an agenda. We create bonds and meaningful connections that feed our Candy Crush.

CONSENT IS A PROCESS.

Yoga is complex, the positions are unfamiliar territory for most bodies and may or may not be too extreme right off the bat. Many people have been misinformed and told that Yoga is easy and anyone can do it. The truth is that this discipline should be considered a sport, there is value and risk.

HINDSIGHT NOW.

Parenthood is mind-blowing. The narrative of struggling leading to success has always intrigued me and yet it feels wrong here. I assumed that somehow raising children would come easy to me.

BEING HUMAN.

I love Vampires.  I am drawn to the rough and raw werewolves, intoxicated by their mystery. I cannot stand Zombies. I relate most to a shape shifter. Witches, Wargs, and White Walkers. The world of Fantasy continues to grow.
