The Importance of Play

I’m just coming off of a weekend of PURE PLEASURE. I road-tripped with my best amigas to a beautiful land of bountiful food, biking, and wine. And I’ve come back feeling refreshed, on purpose and with a new spring in my step. I can’t believe that I’m writing this blog post on the importance of […] Read more…

When grit and enlightenment aren’t enough

I’m doing this new thing. I’ve come to the end of the rope with some of my self-destructive habits. I knew it was time to make a change when I slipped from anger to apathy. It happened in the process of trying not to beat myself up for slogging away in the same old ways […] Read more…

Meditation: Just Quit.

Give up on meditation. Seriously. Just do it. Hang up your hat and walk away from the small pillow that promises peaceful presence but instead leads to back pain. Say goodbye. Meditation is hard. It can be infuriating. But when I ask a client how meditation is going, or what their experience with it has been, no one […] Read more…
