I’ve been camping with my mom since I was in the womb. It was her first camping experience EVER – pregnant with me sleeping on a hard foam mattress in the desert of Southern California (you can tell where I get my hardiness from). We’ve been nature lovers since and jump at the chance of

Coming off the holidays, as you know, new year’s resolutions make headline news. But who really follows them? And why do we make them in the first place? For two reasons – one because we want to start the new year on the “right foot,” and two because somewhere inside, we’re punishing ourselves for the

It was the day before I left for a two week trip to the desert for some spring time flowers and warmth – and the day of picking up my tax return – April 5, 2015. I parked in front of the office, the sun beaming into my car. I said to myself as I

Having spent the last 2 weeks on the road with a purpose of finding my new home, I learned a few things. I learned what I like and what I don’t like. I learned what I can live with and what I can’t live without. It was an important trip. I also had an expectation

The very first one every time (of hundreds of teachings). It was

You’re asked to dinner and you say you’ll get back to them… but you don’t. You know you need a new washing machine, but you put it off. You have 2 great opportunities, but you choose neither because you don’t want to make the “wrong” decision. You know you need a vacation, but you don’t

When I decided to go full time into my business, it wasn’t a quick decision, or an easy decision. For years I waffled between the work I knew that was reliable income, and what my heart was pulling me toward (coaching and mentoring). I would teach another avalanche course, instruct another NOLS course, guide for

There are many parts of my life I didn’t plan on or had something totally different in mind. I didn’t plan on having anxiety or a panic attack at age 32. I didn’t plan on it taking 8 years to know my purpose. I didn’t plan on getting sick for 2 years with a virus

Several weeks ago I decided to do a weekend yoga workshop. I had never done one before. This one was being taught by a friend who had gone to India to study this particular style of yoga (Surya Kriya) with an Eastern Mystic named Sadhguru, and I thought, “What the heck? It’ll be good for
