Shine the Divine:

Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice

When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

Flagrant Beauty







should be evening’s hush

as sky becomes blush upon
innocent flowers

rose haze blurs edges
heaven's  riot burning bright
scorched silhouettes stand

tall black witnesses
pierce  through  this audacity
such  flagrant beauty




I feel deep gratitude for everyone who took the time to read my interview @ LilyWheel Slide yesterday, and to Hali of course for inviting me. The support from all of you for the work I do in the world filled my heart and broke it open to receive and emanate more love and light than ever before. Thank you all.


B'rukhah at Ya.  M'kor Ha-chayim,
ha-tomekhet banu b'haviyenu
Or l'choshekh,
marpei l'shever,
v'shalom l'khol yoshvei tevel.

Blessed are you, Source of Life,
Who helps us to bring
Light where there is darkness,
Healing where there is brokenness, and
Peace to all of the earth's inhabitants.
