When I received this poem written by Joanne, I was deeply touched by how her words powerfully express our shared human experience. The constantly evolving and expanding essence of who we’ve been, who we are and who we are becoming.Read More
True Sisterhood is a place where vulnerability is celebrated as a superpower, asking for support is considered a strength and revealing our imperfection is admired.Read More
DEAR SISTERHOOD. My hope for all of us in 2019 is a peaceful heart. Even if for one breath, or perhaps a day or momentary glimpses throughout the year. From this resting place it's possible to source a little more love.
Before moving forward, I'm inviting all of us to reflect back.
Faith (spirit realm) is fueled by courage (human reality). It takes faith for me to trust that whatever shows up on my life’s path is a beloved teacher, especially when it’s hard. It takes courage to turn toward that discomfort and let it show me exactly where I am holding back and shutting-down. To allow the pain to act as an initiator, who illuminates with radical honesty, the places where I’m stuck.Read More
Everywhere, women are being called to Rise Up. To claim our power. To give power to our voice. To give voice to our truth.
I truly believe when we allow ourselves to be fully seen, sharing our heart's wisdom with radical candor - the hard stuff and the hopeful - we no longer have anything to hide and we set ourselves freeRead More
“You have fallen back.” The message wasn’t from my direct boss, it had been relayed down from the one room apartment at the top where the big guy in charge takes up residence. No specific context or behavioral feedback accompanied that message. No details on what I could start doing differently to grow and become a stronger leader. No openness to have the conversation directly with me. No insight on how to get back in good graces with the landlord.Read More
Stop biting your lip and worrying about what other people will think of you. You are running from the FEAR of being judged. Put together. Perfectly scripted. Polite. Holy Hell - that orientation to life is exhausting and you are going to find the cliff if you don’t begin speaking your truth. When you are brave and real, pushing the edges of your comfort zone and taking a stand for what you believe in, you are going to piss some people off. That’s exactly when you celebrate, not hide. RISE ABOVE the haters and you will find your posse.Read More
Grace under pressure is one of the most beautiful expressions of bravery we will ever witness. When a woman is vulnerable enough to speak her truth. When she lets go of who she thinks she should be and melts into who she authentically is. When she lets go of hustling to be liked and realizes she is already enough. In that moment when she becomes real, she inspires others to do the same.Read More
Instinctively being pulled toward the great guidance of silence I began to listen to the whispers. Slowly, the language of my heart revealed itself. Underneath the sludge, I found my authenticity, my courage and my voice...along with my hunger to play bigger in the world. Which leads me to the clarity of my calling. My work is to inspire and empower all women to rise up and speak their truth.Read More
