I’ve had a revelation here in Bali…

On my first Sunday night here in Bali, I went to a kirtan. For those of you who have never heard of it before, a kirtan is basically a Sanskrit sing-a-long. Perhaps the reason you’d be familiar with it is because you’ve seen Bhakti yogis sitting in orange robes in a park singing “Hare Krishna, […]

Speak your truth, Hill

I’ve been getting Hillary Clinton’s campaign emails since last spring, and there’s something that’s really struck me about them… when the primaries concluded and it was clear that our candidates were Hillary and Donald, all of Hillary’s emails were versions of a very particular message: we can’t let Donald Trump be our next President. Now […]

Let’s talk about Hillary’s voice

Let’s talk about Hillary’s voice. We’ve heard individuals and the media alike commenting negatively on it. People call her shrill. People call her strident. They say they they can’t handle her shouting. As a voice coach, I’ll be the first to admit that Hillary is employing some less than ideal tactics at times for placing […]

This past weekend, our founder shared a beautiful post about how challenging it can be to cope with the news of tragic or unsettling world […]

It’s time to become a smoothie

I’ve been going through a very big time lately. I told myself that 2016 was going to be my Year of Transformation, and boy oh boy stuff is transforming. A lot of things are falling away, new things are emerging, and in general BIG CHANGE is happening in every aspect of my life. One of the […]

Letting Go Is Not a Doing

  Recently I floated in a sensory deprivation tank for the first time. I’ve been curious about trying it for awhile, and oh my goodness I’m so glad I did because it was magical. It was absolutely fascinating to be in an environment with no immediate boundaries (I mean yes the tank has walls, but […]

It’s okay to rest

So there’s this thing that sometimes happen to us creative, driven people… It goes something like this: Step one: We dream up a big project. Step two: We put our plan into action. We pour our time, energy, money, love, sweat, blood, and tears into it. We work on it for months, if not years. […]
