TODAY, MY NOTE IS SHORT AND SWEET. A PoP (Place of Pause), a change-making GIFT-giving idea, and a musing on hope when life is hard … from my heart to yours.

First … take a beat and a breath to BE. Ahh.


Place of Pause

Be Still (Surrender)
In the midst of the reality or dream
of a kula or community
of trusted soul friends in your life,
this is a moment of sacred solitude.
Yes, shhhhh.
Breathe. Be still.
Tend to being.
Being still.
Not doing one single thing.
Just be.
Right here, right now.

This is 6 of 40 weekly PoPs and our focus is: TRUSTED SOUL FRIENDS. Do you have trusted few people with whom you can be you—to laugh or cry, to rock life or flail, to be loud or be quiet? These are the ones with whom you are able to be real, together. Living a life of raw and real interconnection makes life better.

Enter deeper still
into the mystery
that the capacity and provision
of a kula – a community –
is breathtaking and game-changing.

It is here where
you discover and uncover
the powerful and propelling ways
in which we are inextricably
tied together.
It is here where
you are beckoned and empowered to be bold,
to be brave,
to be you.

For a longer and guided PoP on YouTube and to dive into this week’s PoP (our focus: “Trusted Soul Friends”), check out the video series (it’s free) of 10-minute PoPs.



I share these short and sweet PoPs so you can FILL UP with peace and navigate this wild and crazy season with strength and courage. There is much clamoring for our attention 24-7 with LOUD, FEAR-based, PANIC-inducing messages – but let’s practice peace, together, amidst these stormy days.
