What's Your Nonnegotiable?

What’s your nonnegotiable? What’s the one thing you must do most days or things will not go right with you? The one thing that you will not give up for time or money or sex. (Okay, maybe for sex, but stick with me here.)

How to Bear the Unbearable

When we can allow our hearts to have compassion for those millions of people suffering as we are in this moment, we begin to transform. Our humanity deepens, our souls soften and we suddenly begin to make sense of what the poets have been saying since time began.

How to Break Unhealthy Relationship Patterns

The truth is that we all have different internal struggles that get in our way when it comes to finding and maintaining the love we say we want. However, there are certain patterns we bring to our relationships that are based on our past and that often lead us to the same relationship outcomes.

We who continue to grow, perpetually enter the goop of change, or butterfly soup. It’s incomplete. It wouldn’t look good on a photo shoot.

"I'm Spiritual but Not Religious"

“No, I am not religious, but I do consider myself a very spiritual person.” What does that mean? What is the difference between religious and spiritual? Where being religious is connected to the belief and worship of a superhuman controlling power, being spiritual gets a bit more shimmery and vague.

You Are Not a Self-Improvement Project

I often hear a lot of "shoulds," and many women I meet confess they downright suck at self-care. As a life balance coach/teacher, I have studied, explored, and taught self-care to men and women for more than 20 years and I can
