All The Workin’ Moms…

I get up before the sun rises this morning. I sneak out from under tiny arms and legs and I make a strong coffee. My partner wakes up with me to help with the transition from happy sleeper to grumpy traveller. I watch my boys sleeping in the darkness and I kiss them and whisper in their ears “I love …

Bliss, Bless, Abundance? It Might Be A Self Help Addiction.

I was on Facebook today and I saw a post from a woman that said “this is what bliss looks like” with a selfie attached. Then she told us that we could be blissed out too. It was a choice, and she could help us with her online course. My first reaction was anger. Not today sister. I’ve been challenging …

SHE HAS TAKEN TO BED (a womanifesto for privacy)

You know in the “olden days” on our fake wood paneled doors we could hang a sign on the doorknob that said “STAY OUT” and “TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED.”  Mine said “Leave me alone, I’m having a crisis” which is some serious fortune telling… I feel guilty demanding space. I feel ashamed of the “unnatural tendency” of a woman wanting …

My kids almost 5 and I’m almost a mom. Why Now?

I have a 3-year-old and a 4.5-year-old and the transition into mama-dom has been less than pleasant. At times I’d call it horrendous. It’s one of those life transitions that if you “really knew” what would happen to you- I firmly believe that the world would not have overpopulation problems. But once the deed is done- and we are stuck …

I’m not wishing you a Happy New Year!

…instead, I’ll wish you softness when you’re grieving and the breath to navigate through it.  I’ll also wish for you to see that you are surrounded by people who probably have many of the same terrors as you do. Even if social media seems to be sure they are doing much better. Because they traveled more this year. And they made …

Advice: How do I hate Christmas less?

Advice Column Question: How do I hate Christmas less?  Ya know? Answer: Yep. I know. But I don’t think you hate Christmas. I think you are grieving. I call it the un-nameable Christmas sadness and it shows itself in many forms. One of my highlighted bad memories of Christmas was looking out of our living room window on Christmas morning at the …

If all men could hear this….

For us to rise, you must fall. It’s the natural order of our system, to keep in balance, on the teeter-totter of the world. And you won’t want to. Because things will be different. And that’s really scary. But we promise you we will not hurt you. We will not rape you. We will not punish you. We want to …

I’m a self-diagnosed self-help-aholic.

I’ve done so much self-help I’d call myself an expert in the field. I’ve spent over $70,000 on hypnotherapy, hydrotherapy, talk therapy, watsu, vaginal weightlifting and swimming with cosmic dolphins. A Didgeridoo played over my naked body to cleanse my ancestral patterning? Yep. Hiding in the bathroom to talk to an intuitive via Skype who accessed my angels so they could …

My Creative Process (our creative process)

Nothing.

I feel like shit about this.

There is nothing.

I do other things, less important things, things I could give or take.

I feel like every task is time-wasting. I notice there are a lot of assholes around. I feel fat. I stop wanting to have sex…
