How to weather a rough patch

I'm writing to you from New Orleans! It is gloriously warm and damp here, and I am reveling in the moss and the trees and the bricks and the food and the glorious buildings and the soft, soft air! Last week I told you about a time in my life when it felt like I was...

Fierce and Tender: an experiment!

I'm trying something totally new.  I have an idea for a brand new program and I'm over the moon about it, because it's the very thing that I have craved the most for myself and for you this past year. (Which is how all my best programs and groups are born!) But...

A new BLISS CONSPIRACY! #blissconspiracy

Here are some daffodils for you! Don't you need them? Me too! I've had a hideous cold this week, and it's made me feel grateful for all the shit I usually take for granted-- like breathing, sleeping, talking without coughing-- but also daffodils. In fact, as I looked...

The fight in you

We in the northern hemisphere are deep into the season of darkness. It's so dark by 5pm that I just want to huddle under a blanket and hibernate until spring. With snacks! And fuzzy socks! And mulled things! That's a reasonable response, right? ​As the days get...
