Category Archives: Spiritual Connection

Awakening to the spiritual value and lifeforce inherent in all of existence is a necessary part of transforming our culture into one that can sustain life. As we invite Spirit back into our awareness we begin to understand our lives in the context of a much greater unfolding. This relation to Spirit transcends the boundaries of any specific religious practice and embraces them all within the diverse fabric of our collective human history. Spiritual awareness and connection has, in fact, been the foundation of all human cultures besides the secularized industrial growth culture we now live in. Posts in this category will invite us to explore our relation to Spirit in unconventional and authentic ways, trusting our own unique and inherent relationship with the lifeforce that moves through existence.

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 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 →

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 →

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 →

Pressing on…

Sitting on a rock outcropping thousands of feet above our little town, my daughter asked me to pass the water. Relieved and grateful to have this windy respite from the mosquito swarms of the forest and a much needed break for her little legs, she opened the water bottle and took a long slow conscious Continue Reading →

A Life with Some Question Marks

After three weeks of travel, family visiting, sight seeing and camping in the wilderness I’m back home now to my altar, to my desk and to my regular daily routine. I’m reorienting to my life. A beautiful, gentle, graceful life that also carries strain and struggle. A life with some BiG question marks on it…for Continue Reading →

Musings on the Kali Yuga

It’s the Kali Yuga…accept it and let it go. Here we are…born into these times and these bodies…these stories…given the skills and the strengths appropriate to our challenges in each moment, whether we believe it or not. The empire is declining…the walls are crumbling…Kali is sweeping through this world with her fierce compassion…leveling all that Continue Reading →

Beauty as your J-O-B

What if your job was to create Beauty and express Gratitude? What if these were your sacred tasks…the things you MUST do each day before and beyond anything else? More important than making money. More important than paying your taxes or maintaining your car insurance. More important than getting your kids to school on time. Continue Reading →

The Inheritance of Love

Written on Father’s Day 2014 on the island my dad spent his summers as a kid. Dad…I’m here. Here on the island…sitting on the front porch of the old cottage in the sun and wind, listening to the planes fly close overhead and watching the light play on the water. These shores, covered in beach Continue Reading →

Spiritual Healing for our Earth and the Waters

I finally brought myself to watch Gasland this past week…(4 years after it was made) Even though I’m totally grateful that people are creating these documentaries to teach us about what’s going on in our world, I have a tendency to avoid them. It’s just too much for my empathic spirit to stomach. In fact, Continue Reading →
