More Than A Prayer: Mass Shootings + Masculinity

Yesterday, I went to Planned Parenthood. I had to pass by an armed guard at the entrance because hegemonic masculinity has militarized my vagina.   Men are losing their shit.   *Ahem*– white, cis “MEN”. ← It should be noted.   They don’t make air quotes big enough for the kind of “men” perpetrating these crimes.   And it does… Read more →

I Want to Be Eaten

This article was featured in Elephant Journal. Please give it a click.   Recently, a brilliant yoga teacher said to the class, “The opposite of holding on isn’t letting go.

The Sacred NO + Spectrum GIVEAWAY

Being outraged all the time is exhausting. It can make you numb with grief.   Driving down the New Jersey Turnpike, past the factories heaving waste into the sky, and you wonder HOW CAN THIS GO ON ONE MORE SECOND.   Three friends text you, “Girl, when can we hang out?” OH GOD.   Another email comes asking for a discount… Read more →

I’ve Got an Indictment For You: Why Aren’t Internet Famous People Posting about Ferguson?

New-age and personal power transformational coach/entrepreneur/bloggers/people with a following PUT DOWN YOUR CRYSTALS, AND LISTEN UP. Take like five minutes between your next colonic and your core power yoga, sit your green smoothie-drinking, Lululemon-wearing ass down at your Twitter feed and ask yourself, WHY HAVEN’T I POSTED ANYTHING ABOUT THE CIVIL RIGHTS FIRE BURNING THROUGH AMERICA? At first I was… Read more →

Bloom True Bali

I went to Bali for a month in March and April to assist with two transformational intuitive painting retreats. It was my first time in Asia and it took nearly 30 hours to get there. I don’t know how to describe the heat and humidity other than to say that even my Viking ancestors were sweating. Hauling around a 600g uterus… Read more →

So happy to live in a city where ALL kinds of couples are featured in this sort of event…it was beautiful and inspiring. Here are a few snaps from the evening…watermarked photos… Read more →
