As of late I’ve been asked… “How can I get more clear on what I want and really define my dream or next step?”

Step 1: Start
“The only thing worse than starting something and failing… is not starting something” – Seth Godin
Bring yourself into a ritual space by first burning a little sage or incense and lighting a candle. Sit down, close your eyes and take a few deep slow breaths. Then ask yourself what would I do if money was no object and I had all the time in the world? Pause, slow down and listen to what arises. Spend some time here to connect to the yearning in your heart. Give space for the dream to start to crystallize.
The northern reaches of the Strait of Georgia are gently rippling today, and in the background the lofty Coastal Mountains still wear a skiff of snow while overshadowing the gentler profiles of the Discovery Islands. I’m glad we have 45 minutes aboard the refit relief boat, Quadra Queeen II; time to savour the pristine, open view before arriving at Whaletown on Cortes Island, British Columbia.
We let our senses quietly expand and absorb. The day will culminate in Hollyhock’s hot tub overlooking the Strait of Georgia and Twin Islands, after three relaxing ferries and leisurely Vancouver and Cortes island drives. Oystercatchers will be calling close by our beachfront cottage and my friend, Pat Crossley, and I will fall asleep listening to the slurp of waves.

The art of cultivating female sexual energy is awakening all over the world in women’s bodies! Tap into the ancient lineage of the female shamans who were deeply connected to the energy of Mother Earth. This form of yoga stems from the wisdom of Oriental energy medicine. The ancient Taoists discovered that the reflexology of the yoni (yogic term for sacred place and the female sexual organs) enlivened the organs and glands of the whole body.
A woman places a sacred crystal, jade egg into her yoni to awaken her natural, potent sexual energy and then channels it through her body, particularly to energy meridians, chakras and organs. This vital energy is refined and multiplied to grow love, passion and creativity, using movement, sound and breathing.
