Happy (and all other emotions) holidays! I know that the holiday season can be an intense, fraught emotional rollercoaster for many of us. I invite you to embrace and move through the grief, anger, frustrations, resentments, along with the joy, bliss, fun, laughter.

Breathe deeply, breathe in the blessings (fully felt and processed emotions are blessings too!), breathe in all that you are grateful for. Breathe out the jive (as my friend Rosenda would say). Each breath is a fresh opportunity to release attachment to stories of situations / people / circumstances that don't serve you. Give yourself (and everyone around you) the gift of a grateful heart, and a wholeness of presence that comes from embracing all the emotions that are stirring within you.

1. Thank you to everyone who attended the Women's Circle: Singing and Winter Solstice Qigong! Thank you Siewli Stark for co-hosting! It was such a cathartic experience to witness and amplify each other's intentions through song and movement. May we all "soar through darkness and light like birds"!

2. Thank you to everyone who has signed up for vocal coaching!

There are still slots available. Feel more grounded and confident in the powerful capacities of your voice by investing in a session with me. Clients leave my sessions feeling revitalized, inspired, more in touch with themselves, and a deeper understanding of what their voices can do. Contact me at to book a coaching session, or a free 15 minute exploratory phone consultation.
