Inspiring, Illuminating, Insightful: Books That Influenced Me

I am periodically asked what I would recommend to read about the work I do – i.e. about embodied living, emotional healing, movement, or spirituality. If you are interested, scroll for a link to a (very partial) book list.

I have read all these books and more, many of them more than once… but most of my learning has come from oral transmission from my teachers and personal experience in living the practices.

'Tis the Season to Be Healing: Thoughts on Ceremony

Hello dear one,
Short and sweet today as you may have many holiday parties to go to:

Ecstasy at CVS

I'll have That To Go, Please .............

The other day I went for a small refund to CVS – which is high on the list of my least favorite stores to go to – and almost left on the spot at the sight of a long queue of people waiting for check out. One cashier. Lunch hour, duh.
