My most recent book: Sh!tshow to Afterglow
My weirdly popular first book Offbeat Bride is now in its third edition, but my most recent book is From Sh!tshow to Afterglow: Putting Life Back Together When It All Falls Apart.
This book is about recovering from a life implosion.
For some of us it's a divorce, for some of us it's a health scare, for some of us it's losing a job... for some of us it was the entirety of 2020!
My personal crisis was a triple-punch of turning 40, a medical crisis, and an abrupt divorce. (WTF!)
As the dust settled, self-inquiry and personal development became hobby, my hookup, my sport, and my best friend.
It took me a few years to find the glow that comes after you heal, but now I'm here to help YOU find your afterglow: that point when you look into the gaping hole that used to be your old life and realize, "I might be able to grow some amazing things down here if I really try..."READ THE FIRST CHAPTER
NEW ONLINE COURSE
As an author and web publisher, I've spent my entire life up in my head, nerding out and completely ignoring my body.
When my life fell apart in 2015, I tried using all my brain's best tools to heal... but it turned out my brain couldn't help. I tried everything -- reading books, talk therapy, seated meditation. My reward was crushing anxiety, insomnia, and debilitating panic attacks.
In a moment of desperation, crying one night, I put on headphones and started dancing.
Five years later, I'm still dancing.
Now I'm stepping into a new role as a dance doula, supporting folks as they birth their own daily dance practices.
Lapdances4god, my self-guided conscious movement online course, helps you developed a daily dance practice over the course of four weeks of daily video modules.
Each module provides a conscious movement dance prompt, guiding you through the process of creating your own daily devotional dance practice... over five hours of content! LEARN MORE
