Dear ones,

As the spring equinox approaches, the spirit of “rebirth” feels omnipresent. “Birth” is my theme for the year, both personally and in the work I’ll be sharing with you in 2015.

…I’m emerging from my winter’s rest (and writing retreat) with a deeper-than-ever commitment to the preservation and proliferation of feminine wisdom.

…This October, my new book will be born into the world.

…The mission of The Way of the Happy Woman has been revisioned and re-aligned.

…I feel more devoted and capable than ever before of supporting other women’s rebirth and deepening inner work.

6 Insights from My Winter’s Rest (And 5 Spots to Work with Me Privately)

just you me and your SHE

Dear ones,

Over the past few months, like the tree in winter, I drew all of my resources and focus deep within myself. From the outside, I likely looked silent… the colors withdrawn from my leaves… but all of my vitality and power were still there, growing and transforming me, from the inside-out.

My loves,

Ah. It feels good to be back. Happy new moon and Chinese New Year! It’s the Year of the Sheep, calling forth the very qualities in which I know all of us thrive: calmness, gentleness, perseverance, creativity, thoughtfulness, and honesty.

I’m also celebrating a huge milestone today. Yesterday I submitted the final draft of my new book! I’m chomping at the bit to tell you more about it (hopefully very soon). As most of you now, I’ve been working on this intensively for two years, and undergoing the personal journey that led me to write it for the past four.

The Power of Journaling

Writing(This is an excerpt from our February 2015 newsletter. View the full newsletter here.)

I get a lot of questions about the best ways to journal.

My journals have been some of my best friends during the past two decades. Stacks of them reside in my home, and each one chronicles major milestones in my life: my first love, my first heartbreak, my first year in college, dips into depressions, euphoric expansions, new homes, world travel, and so much more. Writing in my journal has been a crucial means of developing an intimate trust in my inner wisdom and an outlet to freely process uncensored emotional distress that otherwise I would have held captive in my body.

Come peek into my writer’s cave (plus I really need your input!)

Come peek into my writer’s cave

Happy 2015! I’m celebrating a mini-milestone today, as I just completed the near-final draft of the first third of my new book. Yes! I’ll bask in this elation for another few hours before I dig into the second third….

Even though we’re officially “closed to the public” until February 17, while I’m up for air, I felt called to share a little check-in.

And I want (and really need!) your input on something, so be sure to look for the survey towards the bottom of this email.
