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:

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.

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...

Did Your Soul Say Yes to Living This Human Life?

Photo Credit: Camryn Rae (inworld)   It is human nature to ponder what happens to our souls when we die. Whether we believe in a single and eternal afterlife, that we go through multiple reincarnations until we “get it right,”...

Speaking Truth

I originally came to the spiritual worlds with the goal to transcend my weak body and difficult mind. I wanted to find what I coined "The Great Truth." Instead, I ended up undergoing a process of naming and embodying my...
