Messages for Your Heart. Transformation for Your Mind and Body.
I’ve interviewed, coached, and been on stages in front of thousands of men and women and you know what? I’ve had it. I can’t stand the number of people I’ve met who hate their bodies, loathe themselves, and live at the mercy of their ruthless negative thoughts. These are the very same people I look at and think: My God, you are a beautiful expression of the great mystery of life!
It’s not like I haven’t had crappy thoughts about myself. I grew up obese. I tortured myself for years. I lost 100 pounds and learned to keep it off–but I still struggled to love my body. On the journey from self-loathing to self-acceptance, I discovered yoga. And mindfulness. And the science of self-talk.
I’ve spent decades studying how to create better relationships with our bodies, minds and spirits. I’ve certified in healing disciplines. And I’ve discovered the power personal expression has to heal hearts and transform lives.
Now I create experiences to help open hearts, foster connection, and create transformation. I hope you’ll join me in my crusade to activate the inner healers within us all.

Dear Body, Love Me
The spoken word poem in the video below is a manifesto of self-acceptance and self-love I wrote called Dear Body, Love Me. I thought I would get up and read my new book on stage behind a podium. Then a dear friend said, “You’re going to get up and talk about your body while hiding your body behind a podium?” Called out. Margaret O’Loughlin suggested we create a dance to my words. She choreographed movements anyone can do including moves from yoga and qi gong. We found Aubry Eggers to join us on stage to represent three generations and Alexander Zoltai filmed the dance. It was terrifying. It was necessary. Our bodies are beautiful and sacred, no matter what they look like. I hope you’ll share this video with the women you love.
