My Day with a Shamanic Healer

Opening to the Possibilities I feel dehydrated, tired and a little otherworldly. It’s been about an hour since I finished my first “shamanic healing” experience. How I got to here is a long story, but I certainly didn’t start my day expecting to go through that experience.  But when the universe deems you ready, the world has weird ways of bringing you what you need…  Well, truth be told, jury is still out about whether or not this is what I needed.  I think it might have been though. So how did I become the beneficiary of an ancient...

On Revolving: Igniting Creative Expression

Reflections from Relaunchers   “I’m so happy, now!” Linda exclaimed to me. I could tell.  Over the past few months, Linda had transformed. I have known Linda for 20 years.  Meeting her long before either of us had kids, she was vibrant, whip-smart, opinionated, strong, and very successful in the male-dominated world of tech finance.  To be honest, I idolized her.  Many years after we had both moved away, whenever I was in a tough situation, I would think “What would Linda say in this situation?”.

August 22, 2017 at The Riveter in Seattle Get Tickets Here! Women have made huge progress towards equal opportunity in the last 70 years.  However, when a woman chooses to step away from her career to spend time with her children, we still automatically believe they become 1950’s homemakers.  Why?  If women have been raised to think differently about their role in the world, wouldn’t the way they approach everything change?  Even the way they approach parenting? Over more than a decade of watching parents from both inside and outside my career in professional development, I interviewed hundreds of...

This Ad Made Me Cry

How some companies are doing the right thing This morning, an ad made made me cry. During my daily ritual of perusing a few articles dumped into my inbox or social media feeds, I came across a video with Sheryl Sandberg honoring companies whose ads break from, or challenge stereotypes.   My attention was pointed to Procter and Gamble, who not only challenges stereotypes, but is also a massive cheer-leader for Moms.  Yes, it makes sense that they would support moms, as they are their target audience.  However, to challenge beliefs around the roles we play, that earned my...
