Writer’s Block

This is a eulogy for all the words that never fell on paper. Born from an ocean of impression Between impulse and exhale   Seeds… ripe with potential that were not born to stay     Unrequited love is here again today.      

Dear Men

Dear Men, There may be some empathy and healing for humanity to access when we realise that women not only feel their individual pain but also are affected by the collective feminine energy field… Depending on a woman’s sensitivity and the place in her cycle, her receptivity and how she is affected by this changes….

Diving for Pearls

The downside to the transcendence paradigm is that it all too often does not acknowledge the wholeness of the exquisite blessing that is our humanity. In fact, if we are not careful it can reinforce the damaging rift between the thinking and feeling parts of us. so that we end up (unconsciously) judging, editing, marginalising or suppressing our true urges and feelings (essentially the feminine aspect of our being)… sound familiar? Breathe into that for a bit…

A Narcissist in Paradise (The Human Condition)

Through a half-open curtain, he welcomes me… to the stage of his ridiculous theater. My yearning for peace and belonging and the fact that he reminds me of an old friend from Prague has drawn me here… * I tell him my woes, He tells me I am beautiful… as if that is the main…

Frozen Moments

TUESDAY 4TH OF AUGUST 6.00am He Calls me As he has every day for the past 2 and a half years… I delayed my trip to Bali because he wanted to ‘spend time’ with me When he returned from Prague. My body knew something had changed When he dropped me off at the station and…

You Say You Want a Revolution?

It’s not uncommon for me to end up in earnest dialogues women who describe themselves as feminists. I was once accused of having a ‘First World’ perspective and that my statements were basically invalid as many women don’t have the luxury of education and (relative) freedom of speech to indulge in the ‘frivolous’ pursuit of embodying femininity. (If frivolous is how they see their femininity.. then what is feminism actually?). I replied that “this simple truth highlighted our OBLIGATION (as western women) to use our place of ‘privilege’ to embody and honor feminine wisdom and to SPEAK OUT because we are the ones that have the freedom and wherewithal to do so!”

Arnhem Land

Standing on a plateau in Arnhem land I shed cool and silent tears. My feet connected to the earth… with every cell of my being, I hear the whispers of generations. The Dreamtime is not some primitive fantasy It is a realm beyond our ignorance a portal beyond time. Weaving songlines cross the land and every…

Come to your edge… an invitation.

I wish to speak to this new trend of calling out ‘victim blaming’. What seems to be a backlash to new age platitudes of love and light is possibly a trigger for our pain. We can go on about how insidious and damaging this ‘spiritual bypassing is or we can use the resistance we feel in response to these statements to meet that pain.

There are stages to healing our wounds and we all have them in one way or another. I agree that these statements can be used to bypass this step and it all depends on the context and timing. Money is not inherently evil… it is actually our relationship to it that can cause suffering. I see these statements the same way.

Ticket to Ride

The Buddhists believe that life is suffering and dissatisfaction. I can’t help feeling though, this is a ‘glass half empty’ philosophy and that by seeing things this way, we’re missing all the fun! I prefer to see life as a theme park… you buy a ticket and take a ride… although in this theme park…

Primal Scream

“I am more awake than I have ever been… yet reeling from the dream.”

Feminism’s Effect on Masculinity

Ironically, feminism does not seem to honour or encourage femininity… It is in fact, inherently masculine in that it competes with masculinity and creates an excess of competitive, masculine energy as a result. Having said that… finger pointing at feminism is equally as damaging as some who identify as feminists blaming men collectively for the abuse and suppression of women… it’s a very powerful distraction that is essentially preventing all of us from living in harmony and abundance.

Deep Defiance

Originally posted on Joyous Woman! with Sukhvinder Sircar:
She’s redefining Deep Defiance. It comes from her roots going deep into the earth. There are too many happenings in her world wanting to break her down. Her rootedness makes her unshakable. That is defiance enough. It does not necessarily show up as a fist in the…

Freedom or Bust?

It’s as if I can taste how things can be… an essential, connected beingness… there is no real ‘discrepancy’ ‘out there’ … and the moment I get my hands and feet in the soil… I laugh about everything my mind takes issue with…. or gets caught up in for its own self-serving gratification. We get…

An All Too Common Grace

Leaves fall to the ground So Precious Yet completely ignored   taken for granted… What a shame, what a shame.. it’s not just the breakdown of elements returning to the soil there is alchemy sublime in every instant of exchange   the transition the movement itself an invisible secret…   the patterns of the past acknowledged, responded to and…

The Beginning

And the walls come crashing down…. I’m kicking myself… lightly… with humour 🙂   I’ve been on a crusade to create harmony in the world. Hahaha It’s so funny. A noble cause or delusions of grandeur? I’m exhausted… From a very young age I felt like I was here on an important mission. I remember…

Another One Bites The Dust

Rant Warning: I rarely go to public events these days but, when I do, it’s because I believe the experience will be worth it. I love spoken word and poetry slams so I was thrilled when I saw my beloved Luka Lesson was performing at Miami Marketta on Sunday. The first half of the afternoon…
