This is the second episode in the herpes series. There is so much misinformation out there about herpes, consequently, there is a huge stigma that comes with being diagnosed with the virus. My intention for this series is to open dialogue about herpes and to help de-shame the experience for those who test positive.  I want to reiterate, if you test positive for herpes and you are struggling with the diagnosis, know this… you are no...

This is the first in a series of episodes all centered around herpes. There is so much shame and such stigma that comes with testing positive for herpes. This series is aimed to reduce the stigma, to let you know that you're not alone if you test positive, and to inform those of us who may be ignorant to the truth about HSV-1 and HSV-2. If you test positive for herpes and you are struggling with the diagnosis, know this... you are ...

This is an extra special episode... it's a 2-for! That's right, you get two chats for the price of one listen! Both of my guests are speaking at the Embodied Shakti Summit. In the first half of this episode, I am chatting with Sama Morningstar.

Your heart (literal and metaphorical) heart is a compass. It directs your emotions and dictates your choices. Your heart is the reason that you love the nouns (people, places, and things) you love.  Your heart regulates your calm and ignites your excitement. It triggers adrenaline and opens the floodgates for oxytocin. Your heart is the brains of the operation... How often do you listen to your heart? And when you listen, do you h...

Like sexuality, life is a continuum. There is no beginning and no end. No right or wrong way. It's not linear. There is no distinguishable pattern. We are each doing the best we can, emulating what is being modeled. Searching for breadcrumbs until we trust ourselves enough to crumble our own bread. It's the way it's always been done... that's what humans do. My guest this week, the magical Stacey Marie Fruits. And Stacey and I shar...

Technology has certainly made life easier, but it's also created a shit storm of disconnectedness. Cellphones are the new plus +1. People would rather watch snaps than connect with family during holiday dinners. Welcome to the new age! My guest this week, Raven Robinson, is one of my oldest internet friends. Our conversations are always epic and this chat is no exception! We get down and dirty about everything from simulated connec...

2018 is in the rearview and it wrung everyone the fuck out... including me. But we made it. So now what?  For starters, allow me to re-introduce myself... Because 2019 isn't about change, it's about consistency. That means we need to invite more on-purpose juicy deliciousness to our lives. And for me, that looks like being more analog. More offline engagement? Yes, please! How about more fiction? Yes, please! More intimacy? Deeper ...

Life is sexually transmitted, literally, but we still struggle to accept our sexual nature. Which makes it exponentially harder to accept the sexual nature other people, especially if the other person is your child. I truly believe that normalizing conversations about sex and sexuality is one of the keys to healing rape culture. We are raising future adults and it's time we armed them with the tools that cultivate consent, mutual r...

We undergo metamorphosis time and time again. The changes are visceral, seeping into our bones and transforming us from the inside out.... until we become someone else. Some shifts are chosen, but most often it's guided by something greater than ourselves and completely uninvited. With change comes discomfort and with discomfort there is resistance. But every now and then we allow, instead of resist. We lean in when we want to flee...

We are born of blood. It blankets and cushions us in utero. Flooding our veins and delivering nourishment, from dawn to dusk.  It stains our hands and our sheets. It saves lives and connects lineage. It transports and transforms. Blood is the tie that binds and severs. It is all the things. Hated and loved. Warm and cold. Life and death. My guest this week is all about that period life! Stasha Washburn is helping women to fall in l...

Birth is the original right of passage. It's the first in a two-part agreement between us and the cosmos. We arrive through the portal of the womb, enshrouded in caul and pregnant with the DNA of infinity.  With no memory of where we were before sperm met ovum, we embark on a journey from ignorance to remembrance. Molded by our embodied family, shaped by experience, and led by divinity. Exploring the forgotten known and rediscoveri...

Death is not optional. It is a right of passage, like puberty and midlife. But unlike puberty and midlife, death is guaranteed. Each of us is destined to shed the shroud of this human body and transition into otherness. And until that time arrives, we will say goodbye over and over again. We will bury parents, friends, lovers, and children. We'll mourn celebrities and strangers. And weep and wail for the loss of life, love, and sam...

Pleasure is a renewable resource, there is no bottom when it's properly sourced. Yet and still we deny ourselves. Unconsciously vowing to chastity. Withholding the pleasure of sex, food, and joy. Abstaining from orgasms, emotional intimacy, and fits of uninhibited laughter. The opposite of pleasure is not pain, it's apathy. We are living the result of our numbness. Trolls are getting high from online torture. Validation seekers are...

The world as we know it is changing. The status quo is nearly non-existent. Gone are the days of going along to get along, the once oppressed are now standing their ground. Forgotten voices are grabbing the mic and demanding change. Now more than ever, shift is happening. And while the tide is slow to turn, it is turning. Inclusion and expression are the new normal. The hetero-normative, male-dominated, white-privileged patriarchy ...

"All the world's a stage," that has never been truer than it is right now. Social media has given a voice to the voiceless, offered a platform to the disenfranchised, and eliminated the barriers between us and them. Virtual movements have taken physical form, smashing barriers, breaking down walls, and annihilating pedestals.  Time is truly up.  A new age has dawned. There is no such thing as untouchable. There is no hiding behind ...

The age of social media has ushered in a different kind of connection. But it seems that more and more people are feeling lonely and isolated, even while being perpetually plugged-in 24-7-365. Now more than ever, people are craving intimacy and closeness. The desire to be witnessed perfumes the air like oxygen. The craving for a safe space to get emotionally, physically, and sexually naked is becoming ravenous. Yet and still you ca...

Spirituality is the new black. It goes with everything and it doesn't discriminate. Every moment holds the possibility for a spiritual experience. But there is one caveat... spirituality requires presence. Spirituality is not the absence of adversity, it is all-inclusive. That darkness is an ally of the spirit. The darkness provides solace and creates space for spiritual evolution.  I'm chatting with my sisterfriend JeTuan Jones th...

Relationships and business go hand in hand. A relationship can nourish or destroy a business, and vice versa. They have a tendency to mirror one another, like sex and money. Some relationships can survive a business start-up, but the majority do not. If one person is an ambitious-minded business person and the other is not, is the relationship doomed? The answer is simple... sometimes. Relationships and business foster growth and e...

Womanhood is a continuous rite of passage. We are in a constant state of becoming. Evolving and growing. Shrinking and expanding. We are our mothers as much as we are ourselves.  And we are now being inaugurated into the new old world. A world where autonomy is revered, respect is expected, and women are not less than... but equal to. In this new old world, our differences are held in high esteem, not because of superiority, but be...

We are living in a time where diversity is rising to the surface. We are being called to embrace our sameness as well as our differences. That means looking at every facet of our humanity and accepting what is currently real and true. We are all at different points on the journey home to ourselves. On a quest to remember our wholeness, while shedding the blocks and barriers that have prevented intimacy with ourselves and others. My...
