We know our experiences live in our bodies and painful memories often metastasize in unhealthy ways. This is why it’s so important to get to the root of our pain and actively release it. Luckily there are so many methods we can use to do this and dancing is one of them! For those of you that could use some extra support and joy around the holidays, I got you! I’m facilitating a special Healing Mother Wounds workshop — we’ll be exploring therapeutic modalities, including movement therapy techniques to release painful memories and embody our strengths. If you’d like to connect with some wonderful women and heal from some mama trauma, be sure to reserve your spot 🔆 Sunday, December 15th, 10am-5pm @cocoonsantamonica.

What if we could go back in time and heal things that happened in the past If our soul can travel in the dream world, then we have access to the flexible and timeless nature of the spirit. These are some thoughts that inspired this video collab with my friend Aeric. More specifically, i wanted to explore what it would be like to revisit and recreate my birthing experience; accessing whatever emotional, physical, energetic memory and information i have of this time period. One thing i know for sure, is my mother was experiencing layers of trauma around this time and there’s no way this didn’t impact me. But as i do intentional healing work on myself, i see how it not only supports my growth, but it also impacts my mother’s journey, and our relationship as a whole. It always comes full circle. We have done a lot to change our relationship for the better, but i think next steps for us is to continue to elevate our relationship in more nuanced ways. And so i float — feeling the support of salt water lifting me up and cleansing me; providing a nurturing, welcoming experience. And so i dance - releasing pain from this past time. Creating new cellular memory, impacting how i move in the world. This is part of my practice to heal my body, heal my heart and support my evolution. And whatever themes i’m working on personally, tends to show up in my art and #HealHerWorkshops. Which is why recreating experiences through visualization and movement therapy are some of the tools we’ll be using in our upcoming Healing Mother Wounds workshop. If you got some mama trauma and self identify as women, you’re welcome to join us. We’re gathering for a very special intensive healing day, which i offer once a year in LA. We’ll be integrating therapeutic techniques to support new narratives while creating a space for us to breathe easier together. A space filled with support, understanding and love 💚💚💚 December 15th, 10-5pm. For more info, visit link in bio 💫 ⠀

Here’s my, “I’m okay guys” face in the hospital. I think any mom who has been put on bed rest or was hospitalized in order to keep their baby safe inside their belly knows this face.
You are trying to be strong for your unborn baby and not let the fears and worries overwhelm you. You’re holding your breath as if you could somehow also hold your child in safe inside you.
We have a new blog post on our website telling a little more of our NICU story, our challenges, and some of the residual we still feel.
The goal is and always has been to help people not feel so alone in their own journeys and to help others understand what their friends and family may be going through.
There is a loneliness often felt in this fight and knowing someone has been there before and someone is there for you now I believe makes a difference.
I’ll keep telling our story, keep giving my number out for total strangers to call me if they need someone to talk to, and I’ll keep trying to ease these challenging times just a little bit in hopes that my experience can help someone else. Cause it kinda sucked, but this kinda helps. 😊

I have dedicated my life to teaching women how to feel confident and joyful about ALL of who they are.
There was a LONG season of my life where it looked like I was doing great - but really - I was insecure and I always felt like I was on the outside looking in.
I started doing REAL internal work on my heart and spirit and have learned along the way that we are not alone, that if we are experiencing it -most likely, others are too.
And if we can dare to step out and speak our truth, #vulnerability will reward us with connection. And connection is the salve to almost everything.
As many of you know I went through #postpartumdepression twice. The first time I didn't know it was happening and so it was much worse. The second time around (after Luciana was born) I knew some of the flags to look out for and I sought help and spoke my truth quickly.
I used #zoloft (upping my meds twice along the way), talk therapy, nutrition and exercise to help me through. Eventually I was able to wean myself off of Zoloft (very very slowly) in combo with WAY better nutrition to support my body and my emotions. ..
During my PPD I had a lot of RAGE. Hot, burning fire rage. Irrational rage. A short fuse.
It seems like a lifetime ago - but my gosh - it (I) was intense.
Post-partum doesn't have hard timeline. Be open to that.
If you are experiencing RAGE and you have recently had a kiddo, talk to someone about it. At the very least, your girlfriends, hopefully a therapist. Read up on it - RAGE a red flag that you need to address something. Care for yourself. Help others care for you too.
I have linked a helpful article from @mother.ly on my FB page. Tag a new mama, you never know what she is feeling.
Sending you love💓💓

“She has wiped the tears of the inner child within, concealed her wounds and silenced her sorrows...now the work to healing the inner child must begin. Go back, look back, reflect, feel, feel some more, hold and love the girl within til she no longer requires you to remain in the past. Give her permission to pass and you then will continue to grow. The healing work starts within.” #thetribeofmamas #healingmamas #mamatribe #traumainformed #healingmamatrauma

Cost of Life ~ Mikyo Wangmo
My home is the charnel grounds
All around me death un-grieved.
A wail caught in the throat,
Like a lost shadow wandering endlessly
Searching for it’s original face.
An echo that never bounced back,
Lost in translation, waiting.
A baby cries out into the night.
Stealthily stalking the sound,
Wild black panther woman.
Dark as the night, silent, still
Until the path is revealed.
Unbounded strength racing,
Fierce razor pointed focus.
Low, rumbling growls
Sending tremors through earth.
Time stands still in this place,
Spinning like a vortex.
Yet her cries can still be heard.
The Queen of the Night arises
Wild dakini eating flesh, drinking blood
Cackling, yowling, screaming
Calling all the wild ones to her
They melt under her compassion
Unable to look away from her dark stare.
She sees into their depths,
Beyond good and bad, right and wrong,
Pure and impure, this and that.
All are welcomed in her womb.
The cost, your life. 🦋⚡ #healingmamatrauma
