HOPE in Her Eyes

We raised around $17,000 for marginalized women. The whole day was absolutely intense, from laughing to crying, from throwing gloves on and getting down and dirty to help the caterer, to taking the stage and letting my heart spill into words in front of a sold out crowd, there are no more words to say.

So I will post my speech here, to let it live somewhere. We didn't film it and afterwords so many people asked why not. For a moment I felt sad that we didn't, but I felt more present in it than I have ever before, speaking at anything. Maybe it's best that way. To remember the feeling of BEING the speech. I want to relive every moment and the best way I can is to simply read those words again. So here we go,

Lighting the Inner Torch

I have to say that this idea of a women's only clothing optional yoga class has already been empowering to me for a few reasons:

  • I find baring your clothes will be about as vulnerable as baring your soul by staring into the eyes of another for one full minute without talking.
  • I finally tried yoga naked the other day and had a surprising epiphany about my own body and tattoos on it.
  • I am more inspired by Suzie Doratti and her commitment to helping women each time I meet with her.
  • As I continue to think about it I am starting to see more and more that less of who I am is on the outside and, yet, that I want to love the entirety of me fully and completely. That includes radically loving the temple. 
  • We are a society so shunned from what is natural and organic. The sexualization of this world has become overwhelming and part of me yearns to return to a simpler time.

Working on it!

It starts with a friend coordinating a way to see each other. So many times in the past year that I've been talking about going to Manitoba. It's tough now, my family is in Saskatchewan and I don't get that way for work anymore, but so many people I love wrapped up in one province. So - we get planning and this happens. Clear Lake day retreat. Saturday, Sept. 9th. A chance for me to nidra so many of the people I looooove and an excuse to dance on the beach. Way more details to come, but this is the preliminary deets. Email to reserve your spot.

We Were Made for These Times

"Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul, to assist some portion of this poor suffering world, will help immensely. It is not given to us to know which acts or by whom, will cause the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good.
