FLASHBACK: The Big Shift

From my old journal: September 3, 2014 – Los Angeles • It was the scariest, saddest time of my life. I was beyond weak physically and spiritually and had to dig DEEP down to find the last drops of energy to do it. There’s almost no feeling that didn’t come up for me during that time.

Divine Healing

My earliest knowledge of the Siri Gaitri Mantra happened when I was going through my Yoga Teacher Training certification program.

Trust & Surrender

Ohhh surrender. It's a tough one, isn't it? We hold on and hold on, and resist and try to "figure it out", or even try to stop things from changing altogether. Our fear of the unknown is sometimes so powerful, that we actually keep ourselves in our suffering holding on to what is.
