My self-summary
Passionate, playful, silly, loving, sensual, dedicated...

Wild rocker chick in a past life, thus the tattoos. ;)

Life to me nowadays is about showing up fully - being in the moment, growing, learning, and connecting, while also slowing down and enjoying the so-called "small" things and having fun doing it.
What I’m doing with my life
Staying open to limitless possibilities and being continually amazed by what shows up! Loving, laughing, playing, traveling, exploring, learning, trying new things, connecting with people. Doing my best to continually grow and make a positive impact. I love to socialize and play, and I also cherish quiet time for meditation and reflection.

I spend a lot of time dancing (I especially love ecstatic and blues), meditating, writing, reading, cooking, walking, snuggling, being with loved ones, practicing yoga, and listening to inspiring talks and recordings. I love being out in nature and I get to the mountains pretty often. Ooh, and I love Authentic Relating/Authentic Games/Circling/Relational Yoga (see authenticworld.org)

I have a coaching business, which I LOVE. Coaching doesn't really begin to describe it...It's based on LOVE, mindfulness, and holistic wellness, and more than anything is about holding space for people to feel fully seen and accepted as they are, getting in touch with the wholeness & perfection that is the essence of us all, and helping them to live more fully, deeply, and healthfully from that place of being/awareness. I also teach meditation and iRest / Yoga Nidra and I love helping people to get started with, or go deeper with their practice...I won't get started here on the awesome power of meditation for shifting everything else in life...but WOW. It's foundational. Anyway, as of now I mostly work with people over Skype, which gives me a lot of freedom and flexibility. Yay!

Oooh, and I recently got my Irish citizenship and EU passport! Ireland is another home to me, but then again home is everywhere. I used to live in Berkeley and I generally get back out to California at least once a year (3 trips planned this year!) and Ireland at least every few years. It seems I'll be doing a lot more traveling in the next few years for teaching and I'm excited to see where that will take me and who I'll connect with along the way! Mmmm....Global Family. <3
I’m really good at
Cooking delicious AND healthy food. 'Holding space' for people, listening, loving, connecting, encouraging; seeing the "silver lining." Seeing the beauty, innocence, potential, and LOVE in others and helping them to see it too. Dancing like nobody's watching :)
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically, I would guess height. Other than that, a lot of people tell me that I have a peaceful, soothing presence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Wow...I hardly know where to start with books. I really enjoy reading (and listening to) things having to do with holistic health, self growth, "spirituality," etc.. Some of my favorites are Yoga Nidra (Richard Miller), Tao Te Ching, Outrageous Openness, Positivity, Love 2.0, Body Learning, Eastern Body Western Mind, and The Power of Now. Some favorite authors/teachers are Richard Miller, Mooji, Eckhart Tolle, Ramana Maharshi, Jeff Foster, Adyashanti, Gangaji, Craig Hamilton, Barbara Fredrickson, Brene Brown, Wayne Dyer, Byron Katie, and Steve Chandler.

I love healthy food made from high quality ingredients. Mostly organic/sustainable and lots of local/seasonal. I usually go to the farmers' market at least once a week and I cook most of my food at home - I usually keep it pretty simple, and always delicious. Mmmm...broadly speaking, some of my favorites are Japanese, Thai, and Indian cuisine.

I love music that I can DANCE to...My taste is pretty eclectic, although lately I've been getting more into electronic. I also like listening to traditional flute music, drums, and Kirtan. Some current favorites are East Forest, Scott August, Living Light, Mamuse, Shimshai, The Human Experience, Hang Massive, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Rising Appalachia, Trevor Hall, and Spearhead.

I'm not into TV, but I love watching a good comedy or documentary every once in a while. I'm pretty (super) picky about what I watch.
The six things I could never do without
Love
Passion
Authenticity
Play
Touch/Intimacy/Sensuality/Sexuality
Spiritual practice (life itself as well as more formal practices)

Materially, I'd rather not be without a pen and something to write on. I've also been getting pretty into playing native flute and hula hooping, so I'd like to have those things around too :).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Nonduality, self-inquiry, awareness, mindfulness (haha...and "not thinking"), spirituality, Universal/evolutionary consciousness, tantra, Kashmir Shaivism, Shiva/Shakti, Taoism, holistic wellness, embodiment, sacred sexuality, Alexander Technique, mindful eating, plant medicine, psychology (especially 'positive psychology'), sustainability, ecology, synchronicity, authenticity, vulnerability, self growth, making a positive impact, and how I can continue to best serve. Oh, and yummy, healthy food :)
On a typical Friday night I am
DANCING. Otherwise, maybe at home reading or listening to a webinar, out at a potluck, cooking, having tea with a friend, star gazing in the mountains...
You should message me if
In general, you take care of yourself in mind, body, and spirit, and yet you don't take yourself or anything else *too* seriously. You are passionate and dedicated to living life fully, authentically, and deeply. You are actualizing what you want in your life. You follow your heart and stay open to possibilities beyond your wildest dreams. You are open minded, loving, positive, and comfortable with silence. You enjoy slowing down and savoring, and can also get wild, be playful, and have fun. You value real, deep, authentic communication, truth, and growth.

Bonus points:

- You love to dance or are at least open to trying
