lots of THANKS …

Guuuuuuys, I had my last workshop yesterday. I can hardly believe that 6 workshops and almost 3 months have passed since my arrival in AZ. Yesterday’s workshop on Gratitude was very light and fun and silly, exactly what the last one needed to be (and what I needed it to be as well). It’s been a lot of work prepping the workshops having to build them from the ground up. I enjoyed doing so, and discovered that it got easier as they went on – easier to prepare for, more trusting of my abilities and much less nervous ;) I am very grateful to have been able to come to AZ and for making the choice to actually DO IT. So much thanks and love to the awesome people in my life who supported me, both near and far. It was nice to see some beautiful faces from the past as well as some new ones. It’s almost time for me to leave here (and right before it gets absurdly hot) … thank you Phoenix for welcoming me back with open arms and for helping this life journey go smoothly and, well, just as it should.

thanks. thanks. thanks.

the TRUTH comes out …

Mindful hike #5. Take 2. I’m glad to have postponed last weekend’s hike to yesterday as my own body needed rest (something I don’t do for myself often enough, if at all) and more beautiful ladies were able to make it this time – win win! As always, I was honored to guide them and to relate to them and to support them and to learn from them …

We shared stories, old and new. Stories of life and ones that we want to change. Shared what it feels like in our minds, hearts and bodies when we live in our truth, or when we don’t. Meditated on our ideal selves and our ideal lives; values, who we are, and what we want. It was deep. It was healing. It was powerful. It was truth.

So much thanks to these ladies for allowing me to guide them and for their love and support as I live my truth XOXO

One more Phoenix workshop left on Gratitude. Holy cow, where have the 3 months gone!?

(Dreamcatchers made by yours truly. I seriously love making them.)

Another amazing workshop with amazing women, check aaaand CHECK. Everything about it was magical and perfect. It started with a coyote siting on our drive into the park. Then, we found a jackrabbit hanging out in our meeting spot, keeping it warm and extra natury until we arrived. Then, at the tail end of our hike, we came over this little hill to a man playing guitar in the desert. And I haven’t even gotten to everything in between and after!!! So let me do that …

Jordan led us through a powerful body awareness walking meditation halfway through the hike. Afterward, we all paused for a moment and reflected on our physical and mental sensations. We all talked and caught up and got to know each other throughout the rest of the hike. Upon returning to our meeting place, we worked on a self love handout created by Jordan and I to dig a bit deeper into how we love ourselves. I was so grateful for everyone’s willingness to be open and to share bits of themselves, and to witness these bad ass ladies support each other. We all held space for one another. They created a safe space for me to guide them and not be scared doing so ;) And everyone created a safe judgement-free space to speak our truths, to be our authentic selves, to connect to something bigger than this physical world …

Jordan and I were so incredibly honored to guide these 4 beautiful, empowered and confident ladies. Wow. Just WOW.
