Working With Sadness - KamaYoga Early Bird Ends Soon

"Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.  It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place." - Rumi

Yesterday morning I received the news that my uncle has passed away. Yesterday morning I received the news that my uncle has passed away.  I have been processing my sadness ever since, and will continue to as long as needed.

What is a Yoni?

Yoni is a sanskrit word that means ‘source’ or 'sacred space’. The space it is referring to are a woman's genitals and reproductive organs. But it’s not just referring to anatomy, Yoni is a word that also encompasses the energy and potential for wisdom, life, and power that comes from this space.

So while there may be a lot of woo-woo connotations to this word, I still love it for the holistic meaning it gives this important part of a woman’s body. In contrast the latin origin of the word vagina, means ‘sheath'.... as in where you would store a sword. Call me crazy, but I prefer to define my lady parts as a sacred space.

Will Power vs. Soul Power

Are you more comfortable being visible or flying under the radar? When you desire to get something done is it easy to take action? Or does it become overwhelming or daunting? Do you feel up to the challenges that arise in day to day life? Or is it easy to feel defeated and want to give up?

It would be so normal to feel a combo of all these possibilities... And one experience is not necessarilaly better than another. But these questions help us hone in on the area of consciousness that the 3rd chakra is processing for us.

New Life, New Class!

I'm in love!


I'm an aunt for this first time. My sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Gaia Hawkins, this past Thursday Feb. 18th, 2016.

I'm so proud of the warrior Goddess my sister was through her 18 hour, natural birth labor. Watching her and my new niece, during this sacred time, has gifted me with a front row seat to the miracles our bodies are!

There are so many layers to the way we work, which fundamentally impact the way we experience life.  And its not like we get a manual at birth for how to care properly for these precious bodies.

Making The Most of Your Holidays

I’ve been in hermit mode! This time of year does that to me….

It’s like all the activity from the year has caught up with me, and my body is asking me to take a break!

With all of the buzz happening from the holidays, to outrage over injustice, my desire to go within has been strong.  I’ve been taking time to really BE with everything that’s happened in my inner and outer worlds this year. I’ve been listening to what is ready to be let go, and what wants to be born next.
