Child of God

Hi, I am glad you are here. Thank you for taking the time to click on over. This is my first post for this new site, which was gifted to me by my dear friend, Sarah Henderson, who said it was time in my personal and professional career to have all my work in one space. I move forward with appreciation and a little apprehension — it is has taken a good nine months  working with Audrey Brewer, my amazing designer, to put this site together. In spite of my apprehension, I am inspired by the words of Marianne Williamson from her poem Our Deepest Fear…

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

“Shrinking back” or “playing small” doesn’t serve God, me or anyone else, so that is my purpose for this blog. It’s a place to completely be myself and share what I offer — from my yoga teaching schedule, yoga teacher trainings, faith, advocacy for public-school friendly yoga, products, to raw writings, virtual webinars and a way to connect with you — it’s all here and I am grateful that you are journeying along, in whatever way it serves you best.

Welcome to this space. I welcome your thoughts, too. Echoing Marianne Williamson’s idea, who are you not to share here? I am eager for your reflections and stories. Do these words resonate with you? Do you feel brilliant ? Fabulous? Talented? If not, why not? If so, why so?
