Becoming Ecosexual: Weathering Jealousy

The tribe is gathered to celebrate the changing of the seasons. Cool fall air hangs around our bodies with a crispness hinting at the approaching sub zero tipping point of Winter. Full frequency baselines pulse from the black hole speakers, shaking the blanket of air into warmth as the dancers move their branching limbs in mirrored rhythm to the shimmer of the stars above. I am the dance. Eyes closed, […]

Becoming Ecosexual: The Nature of Emotion

The Sun sits high in the crystal blue sky above as it washes our bodies with cellular warmth and fills our eyes with visionary light. We are here in this forest to dance ecstatically, allowing the flow of life to free itself within and become manifest without – through the bodily expressions of our natural movement. The large group of people gathered together is being guided through the collective celestial […]

Becoming Ecosexual – Why We Are All Polyamorous Pt. 1

“A world where it is safe to love, is a world where it is safe to live” – Serena Anderlini-D’Onofrio   I sit down on the bench as a feeling of deflation brings me down. Here again. She just left my visual space in pursuit of a choice to be with someone else. My heart twists with the pain of a deep wound being exposed and emanating from my chest. […]

The Soul Mate Delusion Part Two: The Fullness of Boundaries

I find it to be inevitable that one’s personal journey into the question of “Who am I?” leads to an expanded sense of one’s self. The cycles of life and death remind us that we have to let go of everything we consider to be ‘me’ at some point. We practice with our toys as children, discovering the pain of a broken expression of play. We experience it as youth, […]

The Soul Mate Delusion Part One: Why I Can’t Be Your Superman

Yes, I recognize the voice of the critic. The thoughts of doubt in the present that arise from a broken sense of idealism of the past. The character that reminds you to calm your hopes and excitements about the future because, well, maybe it won’t come to pass. The self-sabotaging actions that are your way of destroying before you get destroyed. The heart that has walled itself up because it […]

Tales from Today: Black Magic Friday and the Four Letter Curse Word

We’ve all been there before. That moment when you head to the store to pick up something you need. Maybe it’s a few items – some food, a new pair of shoes, the latest gadget – whatever it is, you have your reasons it is an upcoming purchase. You are feeling particularly confident today because you know there is not only enough, but more than enough, dollars available to you […]

A Conflict in Paris: Uncovering Helplessness and Exposing Our Wounds

Where is there a place for the slow and patient in a world devoted to speed and efficiency? When is the moment for simple and joyful in an ever chaotic and fearful time? What good is love when the world is falling apart around us? Why do we repeat what is clearly not working? How can one part affect the whole? A Terrifying Attack In the wake of the recently […]

We Have Been Here Before: Thoughts on the Election

The Canadian federal election is today and the country is astir with anticipation and excitement around the potential of having another governing party in charge of the direction of Canada. Voting day is meant to be a time when people feel empowered in having their voice heard and their vote counted. I have to admit that the buzz around this election seems louder than I remember in the past. I […]
