Holy YOU (guided meditations for breast love, anxiety and embodied rest)

Happy Holidays. As in holy days. Dark, quiet and mysterious….this is a time to surrender to winter’s invitation to rest, dream and tend to the sacred in your life.

The word sacred comes from the verb sacren, “to make holy”, “to set apart and dedicate”.

So in the midst of what tends to be the busiest and most hectic time of the year, I want to invite you to set apart some time to slowwwww down, go within and celebrate yourself and that which deeply matters to you.

One of my favorite practices in the dark days is to pray. I pray for the women, for the little ones here and yet to come. I pray for the good men and the awakening of many more. I pray for love. More generosity and less greed. I pray for mumma earth and her healing. I pray for my familia, my tribe of sisters and my incredibly brave clients that inspire me every single day.


Here’s a version of the buddhist metta (loving kindness) meditation that we practice at the ashram with my teacher Chameli Ardagh.

May I have loving kindness
May I be well
May I be happy and at ease
May I have loving kindness

Followed by:
“may you have loving…” (someone you deeply love)
“may you have loving…” (someone you are struggling to love/understand)
“may all yogini sisters have loving…”
“may all beings have loving…” (animals, plants and unseen world included)

Try this practice for 21 days and see what happens. My heart definitely opened to more love.

One last thing before I sign off. I want to suggest a super simple and lovely Christmas gift for yourself and other women in your life….a hot water bottle! Yup. I absolutely LOVE mine and use it throughout the month and especially when I’m bleeding. It keeps my womb warm and super cozy. They sell really cute “sweaters” for it on etsy or you can make your own! Here are a few related links:
