I am of this body; I am of this heart. I am an open channel for the cosmos to speak through. I am full of imperfection and although my mind might argue, my wiser self appreciates dearly the kinks of my quirks. I am a daughter of nature, and she shows me time and again the wisdom, beauty and deeply layered meanings encoded in each birth-death-rebirth cycle. (I only have to step outside and smell the magnolia, witness her scent and dressings fall as the lilacs begin to call.) I love the sound of water moving as it does, in all shapes and forms ... and how breath fills a room with bodies in motion. I like to write, because for me, it is an extension of breath: it’s how I learn to understand things, or, how I integrate the fluctuation of this thing called life through these amazing organs we call hearts. I am guided by love, and my intuition, to be the be-ingest me I can be ... and to encourage authenticity, truthfulness and oodles of vulnerability in every being I meet. I like long baths and a bedside table full of books. I like coffee in the morning, and the intricate architecture of leaves. I especially enjoy random acts of human kindness, which this warmer weather seeks. #weinthistogether #tenderisthenewtough #sidewalkart #lilacseason

We humans are prepared to be alone in our fear and our grief. We are ready to face the wild unknown and one breath follows one breath. This is how I used to believe it to be and this is how I navigated the Twin Towers falling and small cell lung cancer followed by the death of my mother and every other kind of heartbreak that isn’t fit to share across the airwaves until the stories release themselves organically from my cellular body, in their own sweet time. Goddess bless these magnificent, angelic body-hearts and their fierce grace and their ability to adapt and endure and let go and hold on. What I’m learning now, in a brand new recalibrated way, with two and a half years of sobriety behind me, is how to hold the hand of a dear sister friend through the healing stages of an intelligent chronic illness, is that it’s okay to ask for help and in fact, that is what Spirit asks of us, too. Yoga has taught me everything since it stepped into my life and the cosmos themselves have taught me everything else yoga has no language for. We are stronger together. We are here to love. We are supported by an infinite counsel of angels and guides. We are growing into future angels and guides. We are here to witness each other and hold each other and sing and laugh and cry and pray and act and underneath all of this coming together is the activation of our cosmic mission to change this world we live in. Thank you @flow.alchemy for your bountiful spirit, divine sisterhood and the profound way you summon sound and song. Thank you @megangraceyalex for allowing us to fill @goodspaceto with our love and trusting the unfurling of magic. Thank you @bloomersto, @secretvegancheese and @lady__gaia for nourishing our bellies. Thank you friends, chosen family and generous strangers who join us in our dedication to loving bigger. And, thank you, thank you, @serahruth for the honor and privilege of sharing this wild, Buffalo sister ride. #thanksbud #paciencayliberacion #tenderisthenewtough #weinthistogether #allheartsondeck #bringheavendownhere #ILOVEYOU [The second picture was made by @goodspaceto]

Second day of botanical protocol and I caught a moment with the sun before this day took off on a run. Right now, there are nine kinds of supplements (Iron, B12, OptiMag Threonate, Vitamin D, Ortho Adapt, a probiotic called Visblome, MCP, Liposomol Glutathione, Cordyceps) and two potions we mix with water (a tincture made of Goldenseal, Andrographis, Echinacea and Licorice and a dry party of Spirulina, Milk Thistle Seed, Licorice, Astragalus, Tumeric, Dandelion Root, Nettle Leaf, Chlorella, Burdock Root, Ashwagandha, Siberian ginseng and Bladderwrack) @serahruth has welcomed into her exhausted body to help strengthen her force field for when the next two layers of treatment begin. First, special compounds addressing estrogen toxicity starting as early as tomorrow, followed by the antibiotic protocol, which Serah will welcome in, slowly (so we can keep a close eye on how they land), next week. These mostly plant-powered things have full-on magical powers and do the following: boost nutrient deficiencies, support stress and adrenals, promote gut health, detox (and hopefully ease) Herx reactions (meaning, as her body detoxes and we move deeper into antibiotic territory, it’s possible Serah’s symptoms will get a whole lot worse before she gets better), Lyme and immune support, as well as care for chronic fatigue. We are still fine-tuning how and when to take the things, because not everything can be taken at once or near each other or in the vicinity of food (and some of them require a special handshake and a unicorn salute) and all of them get sung too before they go in to do their job of healing, healing, healing. (We even drew tiny love prayers all over the bottles so the medicine knows how thankful we are for their service.) Everything about this living and Serah’s illness is moment to moment. Convulsions, stuttering, lack of appetite, brain fog, terror waves and nausea are just some of the symptoms that have shown their face around here in our heart-space. We are lucky to know and trust breath, patience, our vulnerability with each other ... and we are blessed, too, to be held by the likes of each of you. #tenderisthenewtough #lymedisease #sendingoutamajorlove

COMING TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY SHIFTS THE PARADIGM. TENDER IS THE NEW TOUGH AND WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER. I LOVE YOU. I'M SORRY. PLEASE FORGIVE ME. THANK YOU.

OKAY. #sendingoutamajorlove #sisterhoodoftheexpandinghearts #wearethefutureofnow

In the months of off-again, on-again illnesses, I had visions of something like a slippery eel moving through @serahruth’s body, with agility and the stark ability to create camouflage to hide itself. Last week, Serah was diagnosed with complex, chronic Lyme disease, accompanied by an entire entourage of co-infections, and while she is on the brink of beginning a treatment protocol to heal, the invasion of highly intelligent spirochetes takes her over and rages around her internal landscape like unforgiving storms. We don’t know when they will come or what shape they will take or how long they will last. For fifteen minutes or so this morning, she brightened like lightening and could move her body around and we sat and looked at magical books and thought about the New Moon in Taurus and did a five minute timed writing, prompted by the words ‘we pray’ and that was as much as she will be able to do all day. Those tiny, incandescent moments are everything and we will keep going and loving this whole entire new world up, as best we can, because every part of this we understand to be our teachers, too. #lymediseaseawareness #tenderisthenewtough #weallinthistogether #sendingoutamajorlove #newmoonblessings #sisterhoodoftheexpandinghearts
