The Power of Bleeding Since becoming part of the Woman’s Network I’ve been striving to embrace the cyclical nature of the moon, the earth and my body. As I write this I am 6 months pregnant with my first child, a feisty baby girl. For the first time in 16 years, I don’t have my…

Learning to Love your Bigger Body This past weekend I was in New York gathering with a group of over 300 women remembering how our body is the embodiment of the divine. Not figuratively, literally.

Embodying Spring In this season of bursting, creating, blooming and coming to life- it seems as if everyone and everything around me is ecstatically happy. The birds have resumed their songs, the buds are pregnant with blossoms, and the college girls are already in tank tops and flip flops. Creative endeavors are the Facebook status…

Learning to Trust My Intuition When I was 7 years old, I moved to the English countryside from North Carolina in the US. My family had lived in North Carolina for two years and I had gone to a Montessori school where we did sun salutations every morning and we learned in a circle on…
