Ocean and Land

Yoga is helping me bridge the two worlds. One foot in infinite mystery and creative potential, one foot on grounded land and current moment to moment reality. Learning to intertwine both of them is an art and yoga helps.

Going off the beaten path promises so many jewels for the longing heart. But it is the road less travelled, tough terrain is inevitable, but the opening of the heart, the strengthening of faith and trust  is so damn magical. 

A woman who has uncovered and honors her intimacy with the earth through developing a relationship with nature or through the power within her own body carries a wisdom of infinite mystery and potential.

She moves through life with one foot in a strange ocean, one on the solid land of her ordinary life.

This is not just an idea, but a way to live.

Mystics, artists, and mothers of young children know this ability to be half-absorbed in unnameable creative forces while still attentive to their embodied reality, capable on a moment-to-moment basis of drawing from those deeper forces to create and nourish life around them.
— Hilary Hart, "Body of Wisdom"





Belly-up change

"The growth of a girl into a woman, a princess into a queen, is not a liberal transition. Like any true creative flow, it is radical. That is not to say it is angry or harsh. But is radical, the way truth is radical- and birth and art and real love and death. It changes things. It represents a shift in core beliefs, a belly-up of dominant paradigms. Without this shift, a woman seesaws between the brink of disaster and the brink of salvation. She goes from moments of bliss to moments of terror. And then the children, and the world, begin to seesaw with her.

When a woman has owned her passionate nature, allowing love to flood to her heart, her thoughts grow wild and fierce and beautiful. Her juices flow. Her heart expands. She has thrown off crutch and compromise. She has glimpsed the enchanted kingdom, the vast and magical realms of the Goddess within her. Here, all things are transformed. And there is a purpose to this: that the world might be mothered back to a great and glorious state. When a woman conceives her true self, a miracle occurs and life around her begins again."

Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth.
