“The same wind that uproots trees makes the grasses shine.” #rumi
In October of last year during a massive storm, three trees came down in the paddock where we keep the horses. It was a true mess. The kind that you start on and then wait over a year to finally finish. The trees took out one of our fence lines, replacing it with a tangle of limbs. Last weekend Ben and I went out to help finally… >> learn more.
When my husband, an Englishman, and I finally got together romantically it was after eight years of friendship, and years of joking about getting married for a green card. But now we were serious—in love and unsure of when we would next see each other. I was in graduate school for social work and he was working in London, neither of us had the finances to support an international long-distance relationship. So in order to be together, we ferociously started… >> learn more.
Millions of celestial fans from Santorini to Cairo, from Dubai to Harare, in cities across the Eastern Hemisphere are in for an epic treat with the red moon and the red planet lit up against the backdrop of stars next week. On the night of July 27th, into the morning of July 28th, we will experience the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century, lasting 1 hour and 43 minutes .

It was 20 A.D., around the time when Jesus walked, and I was a town midwife, attending births and catching babies.
Then, with the snap of her fingers, the scene was gone.
And just like that, it was over—and I was back in my 2015 body, nestled in a cozy chair, in a modern-day room, staring into the eyes of the woman who had guided me through my very first past life regression .
I had come… >> learn more.

My greatest teacher on shame wasn’t some great researcher or professor, or even some spiritual guru or book. No, I stumbled upon my mentor in the most unusual of places—a brothel in Johannesburg.
Who more qualified to preach on the matter than a sex worker, an ancient profession intimately familiar with rubbing up against societal shame?
I was conducting my thesis research, spending a lot of time in brothels and sex workers’ homes getting to know them, and trying… >> learn more.
“Yesterday I was clever so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise so I am changing myself.” -Rumi
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve said I was going to change the world. I planned on living in foreign countries and working abroad. And ever since I have graduated college and not moved abroad, I’ve felt guilty.
I had a dear friend and comrade in the journey of life die recently. She… >> learn more.
In my previous blog post, I spoke about the need to really explore and find some stuff out for yourself. Luckily, I did most of the work for you (but always check my facts and call it into question, same thing with doctors and nurses)! It’s always good to know things on several different levels. So, here it is. Here is some general evidence based information on epidurals thanks to CAPPA:

Epistemology, not to be confused with episiotomy, is our way of knowing something; most often it it through the knowledge someone with authority passes to us (doctors or nurses), or it can be from our own experience with something, or from what we have read/researched or heard for ourselves. So take a moment to think back on everything you know about the epidural. Perhaps someone, a friend or family member, had one and said something along the lines of “Thank… >> learn more.
