in the wild integration of creativity, sexuality and inner alchemy, I have found my heroes journey



In some ways I can hardly believe I'm here. In other ways, I know it was always meant to be... and so I honor all the small steps and huge leaps it took to get me to this place. This place of utter knowing and wild opening, and divine faith in the process.

It all came down to holding steady on my course, no matter what.

even when I wasn't certain if the community would need this kind of magic.

even when I was afraid to really be seen.

even when I felt alone.

even when the truth was unconventional and complicated.

even when others told me that exploring bare sexuality might not be good for business.

even though it took years for others to start feeling safe to join in on the conversation.

even through having to risk it all.

It was only ever about my Truth.




And now it is all happening... integrating... expanding... and being revealed in ways I never would have imagined - in my relationships, in my storytelling, in the healing work that I seem to be called to do by so many women who are stepping in to be seen in utterly vulnerable ways. Soul-projects that were scribbled in my notebook months, even years ago, are finally taking shape with such clarity and velocity are seaming together beautifully with what has already been evolving and manifesting.

There's been so much universal validation and deep deep ---> LOVE <--- and encouragement to continue on this path, and the road ahead looks incredibly rich and powerful and rewarding! So I am fiercely committed to the fullest expression of this core sacral work that I now know for certain is what I am meant to delve into and share with the world.

I have emerged from the tentative and tender first step, the years of plunging forward and holding faith over fear, in my own wild becoming.

I am here.

Undeniably, in the heart and soul of my heroes journey.

The Cost of Selling Belonging

As someone who use to sell belonging and believed I was creating something universally magical , I now have fresh eyes on the harm that I once caused. I understand what can (and was) incredibly healing and impactful for some, was at the same time excluding, marginalizing and undervaluing others. First, to anyone who ever felt like they did not belong to anything I created because they were unable to afford it or felt like they did not have the social capitol to join -  I am sincerely sorry for not seeing you sooner .   To our entire creative community as a whole, I urge us all to think about belonging in new and equitable ways, and to do the work of dismantling these hierarchical structures that leave so many people out of the circle. We all deserve to have access to creativity and belonging, and I'd go so far as to say both are fundamental basic human needs and rights. Selling belonging can look like... Creating spaces and experiences that can only be accessed by buying in at one,

what's in a name?

It’s May 14, 2020 and I’m on a transnational call with a social worker and translator of the SOS Children’s Village offices in South Korea. It’s 7pm my time and 9am the next day in Korea, which adds to the surreal quality of the moment. It is my first long distance call following my inquiry with the organization documented to be my first place of entry into the system, found in my Korean records (the acquisition of which is an incredible story in and of itself). It was July 21, 1972 and I was 5 months old. It’s a small miracle the organization still exists, and an even bigger blessing that they took such time and care in searching for information and to talk it all through with me in person. I try not to cry as the call connects. What I learn is a lot of small details about that fateful evening which amount to nothing traceable, but still feel like huge missing pieces of my life. I was left near the entrance around 7pm under a small tree, wrapped in a blanket with only a name scribble
