When we take a moment to pause and notice our breath, we bring our awareness to the present moment, to our bodies, our existence as it is right now. This presence, this awareness of reality, illuminates the state of our beings, it spotlights the areas of holding, the c...

Winter wander within

lingering under the skin

swimming through cells

diving down pipelines



depths of being

into this body 

down and around 

expanding inside out

and the more inward my gaze

the thinner the armor

wielded to the world

in the edgeless war

of us...

Oh Clouds!

Fascia of the sky

Reuniting us to wonder

at your sparse expanse

How you, Dear Sky,

are Earth’s womb

our prana of presence

swaddled in your 

blue grace

Sky Father, ceiling

of life

il cielo and, before your sex, caelum

divine one

Edgeless clouds,

perpetual fading in and out

As the new school year begins, I roll out a stretch of five yoga classes per week, hosted by me, promoted by me, taught by me, yes, just me. As a new-ish teacher, it is a daunting prospect to go out on your own. You try your hand at advertising (even though you don't k...

It's what we humans desire most. Often we tie our sense of worthiness to how well we are liked by others. We define who we are by our factions, our groups, our sangha. We belong to this group of friends, we belong to that club, we belong to this yoga studio, we belong...

When we look at someone else's life, and admire the things that we like or the beauty of it, we are projecting ideas and feelings onto this perception. The "what it must be like to live like that" mentality creates  a desire to cultivate it for ourselves. The trouble i...

I want to weigh fifteen pounds less than I do, I want longer hair, I want to live in the sunshine and surf, I want to be able to buy organic produce, meat, and goods. And the list of wants and desires goes on and on; but, the reality is,  I am no longer living in Calif...

I don't know about the rest of you, but my courage (and self-confidence) has been slumbering for more than a decade. Awakening it? Not an easy task. I poked at it and prodded it. I tried to will it awake. I fell into a pattern of becoming angry at it for not responding...

Sand, sea, and sky, lying grounded, bare skin on the soft, warm sand. The symphony of wind and waves lulling your thoughts to slow, your body to release, your heart to overflow. Our return to nature heals the wounds of the ego-driven fabricated necessity of life in mod...
