It’s really OK to simply let something shitty be shitty

I know it’s been a rough couple of weeks for so many of us on an emotional level. So I just wanted to offer you a bit of handholding, a lot of commiseration and some virtual pie. It's really OK to simply let something shitty be shitty.   Crappy things don't always...

Sacred Rage: Reclaiming Our Primal Power To Speak Our Emotional Truth

Why You Should NEVER Believe Someone Telling You That You Are Too Much

I was recently having a conversation with one of my beloved students when she stopped me in my tracks with a lovely acknowledgement. She said to me: “You know the reason that I chose you for my teacher is that you REALLY mean it when you say that you support me 100%...

Why The Inner Critic Does What It Does

It has always seemed so unfair that opening to my creative muse immediately whips my judging mind into a frenzy of activity. For a long while it was a puzzle to me. It didn’t make any sense as to why I would be so crippled by fear and doubt whenever I was inspired to...
