Living at Ease

We live in a culture rife with dis-ease. I think it’s safe to say many of us exist day to day without even considering “ease” as a part of life. I found myself surrounded this evening by people seemingly living in ease-ful states. After a hike down to the river brought a lovely sunset while…

Why You Can’t Escape Your Pain

We all know the value of communication. We’re taught it on some level from the day we’re old enough to consciously communicate verbally all the way through school and in early job positions. Some of us excel at different forms of communication (verbal, written, creative expression, whatever)- and some of us struggle to effectively communicate…

Ch 2018: Metamorphosis

This year could be a full book, to be honest. When I think back to the decade that was 2018, the image of a specific tarot card comes to mind. The four of swords; with the lamb sitting calmly underneath the threatening points- it implies an attitude of mental stillness and mindfulness amongst oncoming potential…

CrossRoads + Process + Community

“You do not need to reinvent yourself to be at ease” – Robyn Thomas I haven’t written in a while. In the last few months I’ve been sitting with myself. I built a cocoon and have been quietly transforming from the inside out. I’ve been processing that ongoing transformation. It’s one I’ve felt on the…

Hats + Existential Philosophy

“As Carl Jung repeatedly declared, our goal is wholeness, not perfection. People living soulcentrically are not untroubled or unchallenged. They are not beyond experiencing times of confusion, mistakes, and tragedies. They have by no means healed all their wounds. They are simply on a path to wholeness, to becoming fully human- with all the inevitable…

White Knuckling the Wheel of Life

To a certain extent if we are going to regain balance, we need to let go. It’s taken me so long to write this out because I’ve become so connected into a new level of myself- and what I’ve been learning is requiring a total rewrite. I’ve been sitting in a deep doubt that creates…

Wishful Thinking or Panic?

The policies on how we manage low back pain are changing. A new revision to international guidelines in low back pain management will be leading GPs in a new direction when it comes to the initial treatment of a very common condition. Here is the link to the article explaining the revision. To summarize, the…

Powerful

I’ve seen love change forms in my life only to strengthen in it’s diversity. Expectations shift from set in stone to malleable elements serving equally those involved. Realities shift from what and who we are taught to be to understanding who we truly are, deep down, and exploring the purpose we all arrive with. Allowing that purpose to take on varying forms. 

Forecast

Letting things go is hard. Until, you do. I had a good childhood. I was never left without, and I was always surrounded by people who loved me. I had a childhood that doesn’t stand out, so much so that until recently I even haven’t had a lot of stand out memories. I used to…

10 things I’ve learned in 3 years

About 3 years ago I started marketing my skills to a population I was familiar with.  Within a few months I was running a small, client focused business. Starting with weekly fitness classes advertised to one specific group, and then a research project based on the same group. I found my first few regular clients-…
