Being Fearless

Fearlessness—what does it mean and how does one attain it? Over the years, I’ve searched and studied it. I’ve yearned to embody it. I’ve sensed

Why I Really Teach Yoga

I teach yoga because I believe in your capacity to be extraordinary. I believe in your ability to feel clear and strong. I trust that you already know who you are and you know what you want. I trust that you know what you need to be happy. I have a sense that you are blocking yourself from realizing your potential.

On this last day of a week at Jake’s Resort in Treasure Beach, Jamaica, I am once again blown away by the extraordinary power of retreats. Stealing away from life, to pause and practice, has a way of always turning me inside out. So much has shifted for me in a mere seven days here—and

Life On The Verge: The Courage to Listen

Life On The Verge: My Long Road To Right Now

In January 2013, I set an outrageous intention to write a book. Once I get an idea in my head, there is no stopping the train—I am in 100%—full throttle with no brakes. I push up my sleeves, get pumped up with energy, and face my fears head on. It’s life on the verge—on the

Being Fearless

Fearlessness—what does it mean and how does one attain it? Over the years, I’ve searched and studied it. I’ve yearned to embody it. I’ve sensed fearlessness at times but never really believed that I had the capacity to fully embrace it. Others were fearless, I simply read about it. Spiritual teacher, Adyashanti, says that fearlessness

I’m Still Blessed
