WHAT’S THE CLOSEST THING TO REAL MAGIC?
Without a doubt: CONNECTION.
It’s a simple answer but the depths of true connection lead us to vast magical worlds within and with others that enlivens and illuminates the soul, beyond anything I’ve ever experienced.
DESCRIBE YOUR GIRLBOSS MOMENT.
My biggest and most embodied GirlBoss moment is when I see the energetic, emotional shift & the peace arise after teaching a group of students. In that one moment of seeing a spaciousness, a peace arise in another I understand my path fully.
HOW DID YOU LEARN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A WOMAN?
I am still learning every day. It’s been one of my biggest lessons in this lifetime.
But how did I learn? Through a deep, long, hard journey of the soul that brought me into deep connection to my moment to moment truth of feminine power.
WHO TAUGHT YOU WHAT LOVE IS?
4 Fundamental people:
- My gran <3
- My dad & my mom <3
- Adam, one of my partners who helped me to rescribe my relationship to intimacy, love & connection.
WHAT IS INTIMACY?
Intimacy, to me, is exploring into the spaciousness of BEING with another <3
WHAT DID YOUR MOTHER TEACH YOU?
My mother taught me:
- Absolute non-judgment – there is always a way of understanding another being & their actions/ways & this understanding leads to deep compassion & patience
- How to care in small ways
- How to stay
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR BODY THAT YOU WISH YOU’D ALWAYS KNOWN?
I wish I’d known that it’s ok to be soft.
I also wish I’d known about how glorious, sensual & abundant womanhood is.
