FAMILY

Family In2it! Card 1B.png

“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.”

-Tom Robbins

FAMILY:
You come into this world a babe.

You crawl on your belly and

take your first steps.

You enter the world totally helpless.

You pee all over yourself

and someone lovingly cleans you up.

With your family you feel your first disappointments

and recover,

still believing in the love you all share.

With your family

you learn that emotions run through you.

You are not your emotions.

You hurt and get hurt

and still keep on loving yourself and your family.

You learn how to be human.

You make mistakes.

You take risks and do things wrong.

You grow from a snotty nose kid,

into a compassionate and sharing human being.

You are home.

You can be yourself.

You lay your heart wide open.

You see with your heart.

You hear with your heart.

You feel with your heart.

Here is where you give and receive love.

Here is where you eat from your table.

You scoop up on your plate what you desire,

and don’t have to eat the whole thing.

Your boundaries expand and contract

and you don’t die from it.

You just stretch and become

the hugeness that you truly are.

Here you dance your truth

and come back again and again.

You have a seat at your table.

You are always invited to be here.

Here you have a seat at your table.

Here you ingest what is served.

Here you serve what you have created.

The table is round.

Here you have a seat at your table.

You are home.

If you pulled family,

you are being asked to

Surround yourself

with familiarity.

Intimately know the trees that shelter you

from wind, rain, sun, sound.

They are your lungs.

Intimately know the earth your home rests upon.

Water it with your sweat and tears.

Soften it with your love and attention.

Feed it by composting your fears.

Learn the native around you: plants, animals.

What is wild around you

that you can preserve?

Let the Dandelions grow!

Nurture the wild.

The wild is a part of you.

The wild is your family.

Birds, bees, squirrels, spiders are not a nuisance.

FAMILY:

Where you freely give and receive love.

HOME:

Your sanctuary to recharge your heart center.

Your neighbors ARE

your guardians.

You keep each other safe.

Being familiar with who and what surrounds you

is your True homeland security.

Creativity is what 'saved' me. My earliest mantra as a survivor was "It's not what I have, it's what I do with it". And my little jingles in my head continue to ring true. "Rules were made for people, not people made for rules. You can take my body, but you can't have my soul." Self discovery is my spiritual practice. I want to make sense of my world. The past few years with the Me Too movement and our current climate change shakes me to my bones. I use creativity for self discovery. I roam outside the box and stretch my comfort zone, knowing the fastest growth is on the edge. As a coach, I nudge you off your cliff, applaud your leap, and trust your creative process of messiness and chaos. Writers block, depression, nervous break down, even menopause are opportunities for spiritual growth. My coaching is meant to disturb your reality. It's in the cracks that light comes through. Whatever taps your creativity, unleashes your brilliance, helps you hear your soul's calling serves humanity and makes our world a better place. As a Transpersonal Therapist, I help you shed fear and resistance for rapid evolution. As an Ordained Minister, I understand that being human is a spiritual practice. As a published author, I advocate speaking your truth. Despite dropping out of high school, I accomplished a Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology and Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition. I am the author of Sensual Eating and In2it! Trust Your Intuition Deck and Guide, and am the co-founder of Body Choir Community Ecstatic Dance (1994) in Austin, Houston, Sante Fe and Ashland which inspired Ecstatic Dance around the globe.
