We CAN live with more freedom & joy in the midst of the madness of modernity and even with the challenges of our current circumstances.
I help modern spiritual seekers & multicultural changemakers make space for transformation by incorporating liberating perspectives, self–care, and new practices.
We are often taking care of the world (our careers, causes, families) and we don’t attend to our deepest growth. We get caught up in the same patterns over and over again wondering why things don’t change for us, wondering how does transformation happen? I know:
You need to attend to all of you for transformation to happen.
Mind, Body and Spirit
You need support for transformation to happen.
Support to identify challenges (including social conditions), build structures, create new capacities, and allow transformation to take hold
And you need to make space for transformation to happen.
Make space for aspirations & creativity // Make space for tenderness & challenges // Make space for possibilities & power…
Make space for all of you
Let me help you make space.

Forgotten toddler tantrums aside, I've never been good at saying "no." People pleasing, compulsive compassion, wonder womaning, parker–posey–party girling, and exaggerated empathy have long led to cycles of overdrive followed by burnout. These imbalanced ways of...read more
It's been a long while since I've written. What a summer. I felt the call to pen something with each devastating moment — Orlando, Istanbul, Baton Rouge, Minnesota, Baghdad, Nice, Syria, Dallas, Ethiopia, our ongoing climate crises, wildfires, floods, not to mention...read more
I've written here before about feeling like I don't belong to any one group or identity. Actually, I am most comfortable in hyper–multicultural spaces — places where mixed–race couples and gender–illusionists abound. Luckily, those are the worlds through which I...read more
[Photo: Pearl Eileen Primus (b. 1919) was a dancer, choreographer, and anthropologist.] In my last newsletter, I shared the Zen axiom that this path (to liberation) requires us "to study the self." I first heard that teaching in my early twenties. And because, like...read more
