Christmas Trees are Falling Down

One frosty December afternoon in my childhood, while jumping with a friend on our backyard trampoline, we caught a glimpse of our Christmas tree in the back window, spinning around slowly like an antique merry-go-round.

The Energy of Abundance

The wind whipped up while walking with a client along the East River Promenade Sunday morning. I heard something skipping across the ground, like a leaf but crisper. I looked down and saw a $20 bill.

Shadows & Light

When I was three years old my parents took me to the St. Louis Zoo for the first time. As we walked through Big Cat Country I began to notice something following me. When I walked faster it walked faster too. When I turned around and tried to run backwards it ran towards me, landing […]

Munay

I signed up for Shaman school thinking it would offer another modality to provide healing for my yoga students and coaching clients. What I found was a completely unexpected journey into the heart of love. For a full week I floated effortlessly down a river of 15-hour days of training and ceremony. On the fourth […]

Upside Down

This morning, after four years of diligent effort, one of my most dedicated private students went into headstand and held it! I recognized the exhilaration on his face as he realized he was upside down, unsupported and still okay, followed immediately by the instinct to relax into the experience. Once he came down we celebrated […]
