Ready to take a
Deeper Dive?

Think it’s time to start breaking down some thought paradigms?

Inspired by fresh ideas, mindful reflections, and a touch of soulful magic?

You’re in the right place! Whether I’m writing about the soul, the culture at large, midlife (which I am smack dab inside), parenting, or our political landscape, the underlying themes are always about:

Groundedness
embodiment
self-love/power
personal authority
truth-seeking/speaking
breaking down hierarchies

I’m glad you’re here.

I love to hear your thoughts and comments, so please don’t be shy!

You can also find my work scattered about the web. The Urban Howl, Elephant Journal, The Edge Magazine, The Good Men Project, Grown and Flown, Rebelle Society and others.

Healing, One Piece at a Time

A Calming Ritual   As a child, I often sat at a cardboard table across from my mom and put together jigsaw puzzles. She scanned the pieces with her eyes, picked one up and clicked it right into place. I...

Abortion Bans are not a Movement Against Abortion, they are a Movement Against Women.

If you’ve lost count, we are now up to 8 states that have passed anti-abortion bills: Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, Ohio, Utah, Kentucky, Mississippi, Arkansas. Just. Like. That. Make no mistake: this is NOT just a movement against abortion—that’s just the...
