Becoming a Shakti Goddess

I’m here in Bali! Oh She is so beautiful, so lush! There is a deep and powerful prayer field here, in the ancient Grandmother Land where I enjoyed 6 life-changing years. I’m zipping through Ubud at the moment to record the latest guided breathwork journey, I AM LIGHT,  and just an amazing spent the day at Naya Retreat Center with the Shakti Goddess Retreat, an event created by Noelani Love from Hawaii.  

A Transmission of Light

I facilitated Breath of Bliss and participated in this retreat in 2016 and it was a powerful moment for me. Back then, I was reading Rebecca Campbell’s book, “Light is the New Black”. The combination of fresh, giggling, spritely, mostly Hawaiian attendees and Rebecca’s book which encouraged claiming your path as a lightworker in service of humanity, made a big impact on me.  

While I adored Ubud, much of it's spiritual scene had certain a weight of seriousness and intensity. But here was this group...

Breathing Wonderland

 

My friends, I want to share a glimpse into my mornings here in Thailand! Honestly, it feels like a mind-blowing breathwork! You may know the kind… when you sit in stunned silence afterwards, tears rolling down your face, feeling every tender breath like a precious gift from God. This kind of bliss is impossible to put into words. But this is my first attempt, a love letter from my heart to yours.

Welcome to wonderland.

I’m typing on my metallic golden pink MacBook, wearing a loose breezy, peach colored kaftan, on the porch of my wooden mermaid hut. The gentle murmur of waves whoosh in the distance, massaging my ears with rhythm. I look up, lifting my massive canvas broad-rim sunhat. The intensely bright light makes me squint.  

My cabin is suspended high above absolutely transparent water. Shimmering turquoise wraps around me in 180 degree view, with powdery white sand, amber colored rocks and tangled algae. Sometimes a spray of flying fish launch out over the...

Wanna Talk to Angels?

If you’re anything like me, you love the idea of angels, but actually having a one-on-one convo is rare.

Maybe you’re comfortable with the idea of guides, beings of light, or ascended masters, but it feels more like fantasy, wishing and imagination rolled into one.  

If yes, you’re not alone. I’ve always been attracted to metaphysical realms. But what I’ve learned in all my years, after collecting multiple masters' degrees and dozens of credentials, is that gathering other people’s information can never give you wisdom. 

True wisdom is gained through direct experience. Immersing yourself in the sensuality of life arouses a deep inner knowing. As you move through the ups and downs of your own adventure story, actually loving, loosing, flailing, and rejoicing, you gather precious pearls of wisdom. These are the most valuable teachings you can share with the world because they are unique to you. I love to call this collection of pearls...

5 Ways Breathwork Blows Your Mind

Chances are you’ve heard the phrase “spiritual awakening" slung around for a while, but what the heck does it mean? In a nutshell, a spiritual awakening is discovering that a world exists beyond what you’ve ever imagined. It's a often a place of love, understanding, peace and vastness that blows away your little “me” and connects you to an infinite, “We.”
 
Enter breathwork. Circular, connected breathing is a practice done lying on the floor, breathing through an open mouth, connecting inhale to exhale without pauses. This ecstatic practice liberates stuck energy and is radically different than the nose-based breathing practices in yoga. While Stanislav Grof and Leonard Orr pioneered connected breathing in the 60’s and 70's in America, native and aboriginal peoples around the world have used this form of breath in rituals and ceremony since ancient times. Chances are...

My Accidental Breathwork

Have you ever...

• Felt stuck in a life that wasn’t yours?

• Dimmed your light to fit in and be accepted?

• Felt a gap between who you are and who you dream of being?

Me too… many times! Being out of alignment sucks. And I’d love to share how breathwork helped me find my way back home.

Loosing Myself In the Big City 

My very first breathwork was "by accident”. I didn't actually sign up. At the time I was living in San Francisco with my then husband, a tribal house music DJ. I was running myself into the ground working in my global hula hoop business, HoopGirl -  managing a manufacturing crew, creating instructional DVDs, traveling the world to perform and teach, and working on my book. 

I had fallen head over heels in love with my guy at Burning Man and moved up to the big city of San Francisco for love. At first it was thrilling!...

How to Open Your Heart with Breathwork

What does it mean to “open the heart”?  We hear this phrase over and over again in spiritual communities, however the answer may seem elusive or down right confusing because it is such an individual journey. So, here are some ways Breath of Bliss conscious breathwork can open your heart and expand your understanding of the concept.  

While there is no guaranteed or prescribed way to open the heart fast, the most common response from those experiencing breathwork is feeling more love and acceptance. Heart opening is a path to healing that occurs on all levels; physically, mentally and spiritually. 

Breath of Bliss connected breathing creates a physical expansion in your chest.

Your heart rests in the thoracic cavity, which is the rib cage, sternum (breastbone) in the front, and the spine in the back. The bones are connected by muscles, cartilage and part of each rib to the sternum. Your diaphragm, the dome-shaped muscle that separates the heart and lungs...
