Beyond Right and Wrong

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.-Rumi This past week someone was talking to me about their spiritual experience. I left the conversation feeling strange. At first, I could not understand  what felt off, as I am a spiritual person and love to chat with ... [Read More]

Self-Acceptance is the Answer

I commonly see my clients rejecting the parts of themselves they deem as “bad” or “not good.”  Things like procrastination, being late, being unorganized, not following up on email or text fast enough, not being able to keep all friend connections alive fall in the “I am not good enough” narrative. ...

The In Between

Our culture values clarity, knowing, certainty, and goals. But so much of life is a process of transition, change, not knowing, and feeling lost. Years ago, a mentor did a simple exercise with me.

The Power of Ritual when Transitioning Seasons

We just had the Autumn Equinox on Friday, September 20th. This is a powerful and potent time of year. It is a time to harvest, slow down, and create a new schedule. It is a time of letting go and getting ready for the darkness (winter). Fall is also considered a time when there is a thin veil between us and the Spiri... [Read More]
