Week 1: Part 1:
Journaling is a great way to become aware and conscious of ways we numb ourselves. These coming 10 days I invite you to journal out the ways that you reached for a numbing agent when you were tired, triggered, anxious or stressed. Write down the feeling you wanted to numb and your agent of choice (food, scrolling through social media, shopping etc).
Week 2: Part 2:
Now that you are aware of what you use to numb and why, let’s integrate some shadow around it!...
Numbing or playing dead: The conscious and unconscious ways we avoid dealing with our feelings, fears and uncomfortable situations.Wherever we are numbing, chances are we need unblocking. These places can be used as a map to see what blocks need to be addressed.
Numbing can come in all different forms, anything from alcohol to shopping, sex, carbs, sugar and Netflix, to name a few. When in balance, these things can all be healthy pleasures in life, but if...
We go through life looking for answers when in fact, the answers we seek are inside us all along. Every answer you seek in life has already been answered and it’s just waiting for you to hear.
I’ve been taught, "The masters teach in the silence" and to know what I want to know I have to listen in the silence, which in Zen is - the music is made in the space between the notes.
Our brains are like car radios, they will "play" whatever station we tune to.
The relationship we have with ourselves is truly the most important relationship of all. Taking time to care for ourselves is crucial to living from a vibrant and vital place. When we honor the call for self care, we nurture ourselves deeply and allow our bodies to reset & restore.
When we give ourselves time to unplug, nap, daydream, and just be, we allow our nervous system to move from a fight or flight state to a state of deep relaxation. In this state, our bodies renew & repair...
Whatever you hold as your identity at the unconscious level is exactly what's going to happen in your life no matter if you think you want that or not. We are art.
You have an identity because you've learned that. As a small kid you have an experience, you create a story about it, and you just tell the story over and over and over and that becomes your identity.
One of the most effective ways to change your identity is through seeing the world and seeing ourselves as we want to be not...

One juicy way is a slow yoga practice and then settling down, lighting a candle and letting your hand run free across a page in writing. Sipping on some herbal tea and wearing your comfiest clothes would be a great addition - but really, you can do this wherever you are. In the notes section of your phone on the train, in your head as you drive to work, out loud with your partner after the kids have *finally* gone to bed - this is YOUR experience.
The beauty of SoulWork and...
When we talk about wellness, what do we mean? For many, wellness is a set of tactics that help to deal with the chaos of our lives. Stiff back? Take a yoga class. Work stress? Meditate and you’ll find zen. But these are short term bandaids — not solutions.
Our goal with SoulWork Club or is to redefine your idea of wellness from a set of practices to a set of principles, habits, and mindsets that help you show up in every area of your life. We’ll identify and...
