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 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.

Thoughts on Freedom

When I hear the word "freedom," an inner bell sounds off inside my heart. I have only just recently truly understood that this is my ultimate quest in this lifetime – the quest for complete and total freedom. Not so...

No Longer Practicing

My first “real” yoga teacher (by “real,” I mean the woman from whom I learned the philosophical support structure of yoga, not just the postures) taught me that the truest purpose of the yoga postures is to practice, in safety and comfort, how...
