Empowerment in All Its Glory

I just finished leading my Healing the Pelvic Floor workshop for women in Asheville, North Carolina.

All I can say is WOW!

The OM Sanctuary was gorgeous.

The women who helped me facilitate the workshop were fabulous.

And the material seemed right on target.

Participant after participant shared how much they valued what they were learning.

Then along came life.

You know, all the details

Rebirth – Renewal – Re-Blossoming – Spring!

Last week it snowed — despite the first day of Spring.

Big wet flakes wrapped all the new buds. And a soft white blanket covered the dark red tips of my peony bushes, which had just emerged from the earth.

Fortunately it melted quickly. Yet it reminded me that life often throws us curve balls when we expect something else.

Spring is the

#MeToo – What?

These past few months have been a whirlwind of upheaval around women’s empowerment and their place in the world – culturally, financially, professionally and personally.

It’s been messy. It’s looked ugly at times. It’s even been called “The War on Men” by those who are still stuck in an old paradigm.

I’ve spoken at length with women in my generation, and in my mom’s. In all innocence,

For More Love, Start With Yourself

For the last 35 years, I’ve been exploring what creates authentic, deep connection within ourselves — and between ourselves and others.

Since the only person I have any control over is myself, most of my detective work has been with my own inner healing.

I haven’t always been successful. Yet my failures have been some of my biggest teachers. So I do my best

Calming the Crush of the Holidays

As the days get shorter and the holiday season unfolds, I find myself wanting to curl up in front of a warm fire and spend time with my family and friends.

What’s a girl to do with these opposing desires?

First of all, listen and act on them.

When I listen to my own inner rhythms vs. what the media tells me to do,

Making the Holiday Season Yours, Too

I love the holiday season. Whatever traditions you follow, this precious time of year is full of celebration and memory-making moments.

Yet at the same time, it’s also when who we are at a soul level can easily get set aside, forgotten, or even suppressed in the name of the almighty holiday “shoulds.”

Especially when we’re inundated by the media about all the ways

When Opportunity Knocks – Do you Answer the Door?

On June 22 I was surprised with an invitation from The Shift Network. They were inviting me to teach an online course to their vast audience.

I was between continents at the time. One workshop just completed in the Ukraine and another was about to start in London.

My plate was full. So I had half a dozen good reasons to

Your Legs and Feet: The Gift of Movement

An excerpt from Reclaiming Your Body by Suzanne Scurlock-Durana

One of the marvels of the human body is what I call the metabolizing effect of our legs and feet when they are activated. Beyond that function, they have an inner intelligence as well, which you will see below.

Legs and Feet Help Us Metabolize

This wisdom area of the body is one

Musings on the Worldwide Presence Tour

This past year of teaching and traveling all over the world got lovingly named my “World Wide Presence Tour” when we were somewhere in New Zealand in February.

Funny thing about naming something — it really brings it to conscious awareness.

When I am in the comfort of my home environment, eating the same foods, seeing the same scenery, knowing what to expect next
