Physically, I am an active natural girl. Lover of good healthy foods, yoga, dance, massage, time in nature. I'd love an excuse to dust off my roadbike and see this beautiful part of the world in the open air.
Intellectually, I am curious, bright, a lover of conversation and thought-provoking and meme-shifting media. Academically, I am a teaching credentialed Stanford alumna.
Emotionally, I take to truth-telling naturally. I'm even-keeled. I forgive easily. For the most part I've learned to nip depressive thinking in the bud with an attitude of gratitude and trust in life.
Creatively, I am an artist of life. I dress and adorn myself with flair. I handmake birthday cards for friends. I am photo-documenting my son's life and making scrapbooks to integrate lots of precious memories.
Spiritually I'm a Buddhist Yogini Witch. Multiple long retreats (including a month-long silent retreat and an 18-month Yoga and Mindfulness intensive thru Spirit Rock) have helped me learn the importance and quiet joy of mindfulness. Yoga keeps me in right relationship with my body.
I feel spirit is imminent in Nature. I celebrate the passing of time through the seasons. I create sacred space through honoring the elements of earth, water, fire and air.
I am not what one would think of when one hears the term "single mom." My retired land-mate and farmer friend is an amazing ally and eager co-parent... down to the nitty-gritty of co-creating meals and diaper-changing. The land where I live is a permaculture paradise, and this babe of mine has been, and will continue to be, building his brawn from home-grown organic fruits & veges. The genetic father is a peaceful and wise friend who lives in Marin with whom there is abiding fondness and no drama. He takes care of my son on the weekends. My mom and dad -- enthusiastic grandparents -- live nearby. An intentional community I co-founded nearly 7 years ago is just down the road. I am grateful I have loving and consistent help with childcare, affording me some downtime for myself as well as time to nurture connections with dear ones and the Beloved I am "calling in" to my life.
I'm looking for someone who can see the beauty and wholesomeness in the unconventional life I have crafted and be willing to bring his own Self -- passions and history and dreams -- to the mix. I want to create connections
fostering health and vitality for self, families, the local land, and the planet...
co-creating rhythms of celebration in synch with the seasons...
sharing healing bodywork and practicing yoga and meditation...
regularly making ecstatic love and music and dance together...
helping build a culture of peace and wisdom and wellness
in harmony with Nature...
Care to join me...?
I joyfully anticipate cross-pollinating and sharing our respective families/communities, passionate pursuits, and ways-of-loving-Life!
Nathalie Goldbarg's Writing Down the Bones and Julie Cameron's Artist's Way inspired a self-reflective practice of journalling.
...Riveted by the apocolyptic and ultimately hopeful thriller, The Fifth Sacred Thing by Starhawk.
Ken Carey's channelled The Third Millenium gave me a deep trust in the power and loving wisdom of Nature/ Evolution, and thus enthusiasm for where we are most likey heading...
Journey of Souls opened my heart to the poignancy of soul-connections and karmic bonds.
Dear Lover by David Deida helped me deepen into my feminity...
Hmm, there's so much to say about favorite music and movies. Maybe let's talk in person about these if we're so inclined…
As for food, I'm definitely an omnivorous Foodie. I go out of my way to eat organically. Not only does it support the vision of agriculture that I think will sustain life on this planet, but it's the only way to assure I'm avoiding eating GMO's, which my research leads me to believe are more toxic than many realize.
Since that is a bit of a cop out, I can also add that I love to sing in my car pretty loudly & even though I know I'm often a bit out of tune, I do so with gusto anyway. Sometimes,
I make up bad rhymes!
... ideally, you live near Sebastopol or San Rafael or would be willing to come visit me there-ish, on weekends especially
... you won't take it personally if I don't respond to your message -- my apologies in advance for not replying if I don't sense we're a match.
I wish us all well on the path...!
