Come To Your Senses
This morning I awoke with a song in my heart to share with you about loving yourself up, so I popped out of bed, put on my red, to get you out of your head! Click here to listen and sing along.
As I was going through my divorce many moons ago, my spirituality took a leap forward. Why? Because I was terrified with my decision to leave. But I had to do it.
It all turned out amazingly, and on that long road I landed on a spiritual retreat…in India! And no, it wasn’t an “Eat/Pray/Love” thing…I spent most of the time there as a quiet rageball. If you knew my whole story, you’d know why. Suffice it to say I had been in a very lonely, rejecting marriage.
But at the end of the three weeks of meditation, blessings, energy work, what opened up was my 2nd chakra. Now for you non-spiritual types, that means the sexual center of the body!
Of course, I couldn’t do anything about that, I was on a celibate retreat, and I didn’t know what to do anyway…I was raised Catholic. I came back to NYC, and got guided to a class on sexuality. That was over seven years ago. And in this journey, I had to get in touch with my senses. I mean, did you ever walk down a street or drive your car and not know how you got to your destination? That was me…totally living in my head! My senses were shut down. It was time to wake them up! This ride has been a slow one, often hilarious…because I had to learn to reweave my story, and how it served me. I have since studied with the top teachers in the country. In fact, one of my sisters has this journey has been Dr. Christiane Northrup.
Now I’m taking all this experience, wisdom and adventure on the road to share with you, alongside my dear friend and colleague, Irene Tomkinson. She is not only a brilliant therapist/coach/author/presenter, but she has worked with thousands of women. Like me, she is helping women step into their possibility. And a huge one for women is their sexuality. Yep. That one.
When I recently did my solo show comedy about the topic, she said, “Let’s do a workshop together”. Titled Sexuality and Spirituality for Women, it was a hit.
Our next date is Saturday, January 23rd, from 9:00 – 4:00 pm at Unity on the River in Amesbury, Massachusetts. The price is reasonable, and we create a safe, fun environment for women to create a new story and step into their possibility. Your clothes will stay on, but you may have to dance. It’s me, so did you expect anything else? If you’re in the area or want to take a road trip, come play with us!

And meanwhile, feel free to spread the word! Enjoy the video and I hope you sing to it, dance in front of your mirror and love yourself up.
