10 Life Lessons from Our Stolen Car Incident

In late July, our 2010 Honda CRV was stolen from the front of our home. It was our newest car, with us only since last November. It was our SPIRIT MOBILE. Before I get to the life lessons (and gosh darn, there are always some life lessons, right), let me give you a very brief... Read more »

A New Friend, A Powerful Exchange, and The Systems of Privilege

I just returned home from a meeting with a new friend. She reached out to me to learn more about my work as a soul nurturer. Turns out, it was a mutually powerful exchange of ideas and energy. I drove home with this blog inside of me. It has actually been coalescing for days, months... Read more »

Don't Fence Me In, Baby!

The New Pope and Enlightenment

We have been watching the extravaganza of choosing a new Pope in absolute wonderment in our home over the past few weeks. My children just keep asking over and over in amazement about why it is mostly a sea of elderly, white men that we keep seeing on the news and what do they have... Read more »

Family and Friends: They May Not Like What We Do—So What!

Some of my own family members and friends are at the very least not interested in what I do, and at the most, downright resistant to it. Some even view it as useless psycho-spiritual blathering.
