How we can change the world
I feel like I am chewing on a big one here. That question has been with me for a long time and the pieces are coming together. I was sharing a bit of what is going on for me with a friend the other day when she exclamated: so you are pregnant! I‘m not physically pregnant, […]
I feel excited today: Over the past two weeks I had been pondering over a logo and business card for myself and my pottery, with the help of my friend Mela Herbert who does awesome graphic designs. Today they have gone into print! I am very happy with the logo that stands for my initials […]
Can you feel your heart? I don’t mean emotionally. I don‘t mean whether you can feel love. No, my question refers to your physical heart. Can you feel it? I imagine you may have felt it – or rather its movements – by putting your palm on your chest, right above where your heart beats. […]
Today, I’m going to invite you to take good care of yourself. I am coming to be convinced that this is key to any relationship. You owe it to your partner, your children, your friends, and – first and foremost: to yourself. I’ll be honest with you: My problems in life are “first world” problems. […]

Dear sisters, I need you. The world needs you. We need you to step out of your comfort zone. There’s shit to be done and watching TV, going shopping, or gossiping won’t change anything except that you may continue to feel numb, and that time goes by. We need you to step out of your […]
Show you care
I recently returned from a different kind of training called “Expand the Box” (ETB), which is about just that: expanding your box (the kind of box that you might know as “ego” or something alike, which contains all your assumptions and auto-pilot settings to function in this world). And wow did I expand my box […]
Which material do you consider very precious? Gold? Money? Chocolate? No matter what it is, imagine that there is something just as valuable, which we often don’t appreciate as such: Feedback.
