Category Archives: Personal Transformation

It all starts with you. It’s true. Your experience of life and culture is filtered through your own personal perspective. And YOU are the only thing you have any real influence over. That means…if you want to see change, growth, healing, justice and transformation happen in the world you have to create it in your own life, body, mind and soul. You have to BE the change you wish to see in the world. Posts in this category will invite us to honor and heal the self by reclaiming personal responsibility, activating our personal power and lovingly caring for our bodies and minds.

Weapons of Mass Distraction

Let’s take a moment to think about the weapons of mass distraction that are plaguing our airwaves these days and the effect that they are having in our lives… The most important principle I teach in the Activate Your Personal Power program is that Power Follows Attention. This means that whatever you’re paying attention to has your Continue Reading →

Poem for Change

Right in the middle of the undoing and redoing of my personal/professional transformation, my sister, Cristina Cabeza-Kinney, hosted a radical, beautiful, deeply moving poetry event in synch and synergy with the many 100 Thousand Poets for Change events happening around the world. She asked me to share a poem…for change…for the now. I ventured out Continue Reading →

Confessions of a Holistic Entrepreneur Part 2: Freedom Time

I’ve never tolerated confinement very well…playing by someone else’s rules or being stuck in limiting situations has never worked out well for me. My wild spirit inevitably rebels and casts off the chains that have bound me. I’m here in this lifetime to transform. To get REAL. To grow and stretch and explore and discover Continue Reading →

Confessions of a Holistic Entrepreneur Part 1: Breakdown to Breakthrough

One fine day in August I hit the wall…again. Chained to my computer while the days of Summer were in their full bloom I was pushing and straining and trying to get up and over that wall of “making it” as a holistic entrepreneur, as I had been for almost 8 years. A potential client Continue Reading →

Feral Gardening

My garden went feral…and it took me with it. Last year I planted what might have been a glorious garden, full of delicious potential. But then I wound up heading out on a road trip and being away for 6 whole weeks! I set the garden up to be watered once a day on a Continue Reading →

Simplifying

Paring down, weeding out, sifting through, releasing, letting go, letting go, clearing the path of all the rubble of distraction so we can remember our centers…the simple truth of who we are and why we’re here.  It’s amazing how the stuff piles up…just from living daily life year after year in one house. Clothes and Continue Reading →

Healing Transformation

Our grandmothers were sisters…and inseparable. They were always together…talking, laughing, bickering and cooking. Italian matriarchs of a large and fruitful family. We were their granddaughters…me and my big sisters…Lisa and her little sisters…a gaggle of girls watching, giggling, learning, playing, listening and eating the love-infused food they made for us. Twenty years have passed since Continue Reading →

Eating Wild

Each bite we take is a communication…a message from the source of our food…encoded and encrypted in a way only cells and spirit can understand…carrying stories of place and energy…and, ultimately, instructions for our growing bodies and souls. This is why food is so important to me. It’s not just taste and texture…or convenience and Continue Reading →

I Will Live Outside…again

“I will live outside again” …a promise I made to myself and posted on the wall by my desk 8 years ago while living in my parents’ basement as a single mother and going to school. Some people want to make a bunch of money, live in a fancy house, take vacations in “desired” locations Continue Reading →

Fed by the Mountain…quite literally

As we started walking down the path into the wilderness, my man called me to attention by asking me to let him know when I saw something edible. I’d been walking along in my own little world with a vague sort of gratitude and relief to have found our trail head, loaded up our packs Continue Reading →
