Dear, sweet, beautiful woman…
Let me tell you a little story…
Several weeks ago I had a little bird in my ear telling me I needed to do something for Mother’s Day to share here. It, of course, didn’t give me any hints and just left me hanging for awhile. So I made a little note on my To do list and just wondered each time I saw it, with a bit of trepidation in my heart because really…do I need any more projects?
But I leaned into Trust that what needed to come forth would come and would do so at just the right time.
Well then Monday rolled around and Justin and I went on a nature walk and came to the end of a path and sat on the makeshift log-bench and watched the scenery while the dog ran around and I verbalized all my thoughts. I had thought of launching the parenting e-course or another paid product but I knew enough people would be talking about things you could buy yourself for Mother’s Day and I heard a little pang of “No, yours needs to be a gift.”
I thought to myself, “These are the women who give all the time. I want to give them the gift of receiving. I want to fill their cups.”
And as he and I spoke together the words just came out, “I think I’m going to create a little mini-meditation.”
A little bit of wisdom, a little bit of love, a little bit of breathing room is what I really want to offer you.
Later that day I sat down with my journal and allowed myself to process around what needed to come through me, who it was for, what it would say, what it would be called and got a very clear directive, “Don’t think about the words and the details now. Just sit down to record, and hold in the heart the women you most want to speak to, then speak.”
So I did just that. I climbed in the back of my sound studio (the backseat of the truck), closed my eyes, started the music in my ears and brought to my heart my mama and my tribe of sister-friends and you out there.
And then I spoke the words that needed saying.
It’s not perfect. It’s not earth-shattering, except maybe for a few women who will receive it. The mini-workbook even has typos that I have no intentions of fixing.
But it’s filled with love. A gift from my heart and my wisdom straight to you.
Filling Your Cup :: A Mini-Retreat to Rest Your Tired Body, Nurture Your Depleted Heart, and Replenish Your Spiritual Cup
:: A 24 minute meditation to allow you to rest, breathe, absorb and tap into what fills your spiritual cup
:: (Don’t have 24 minutes? The first 7 min were serendipitously created to standalone as a micro-mini retreat, a moment to catch your breath and stop wearing your shoulders like earrings.)
:: And a workbook filled with wisdom, affirmations, prompts and ideas to help you keep your cup full all year long.
And best of all?
Yes, free. A gift for you to receive.
No catch. No strings. Just something to open your heart to…
A moment of stillness. A pocket of peace. The knowledge and a few tools to feel vibrant and energetic.
The knowledge that you are enough.
That you deserve it.
Want to get yours?
P.S. It’s not just for mamas. It’s for all woman who give so much to the world around them and would like a little more practice receiving.
P.P.S. If you want to upload the MP3 to your iPhone you can do so by opening it in iTunes, right-clicking and converting to AAC version, then syncing that version!

Parenting is hard. Damn hard at times.
But if those tools are based on power-over or carrot-and-stick, we’re just teaching our children the things they’ll need to unlearn later in life to be intrinsically motivated and able to form healthy relationships.
This is why I hope you’ll check out the Organic Parenting course.
- Six core modules, as well as two bonus modules
- Audio, video, transcripts, and workbooks for every learning style
- Bonus printouts, goodies and meditations
- Village Wisdom: The collaborative collection of parenting wisdom from dozens of contributors
Together we’ll look at how we can:
- Stop feeling tired or overwhelmed,
- Get past our triggers and stop losing our cool,
- Never need to punish them again,
- Have fun, laugh, and actually enjoy one another!
