An open letter to my peoples: How can I help?

Dear Tribe,

I know you relate…

I check Instagram when I’m at cash registers. It’s gross. Gotta knock that off. I haven’t read a book in ages because I’m on my fucking phone. My phone is fucking my life. Fuck my phone. But I love my phone.

Work-life balance is a LIE. But I want it anyway.

I believe the esoteric good stuff, I’m all in.

I’m in real pain about the state of the world. I want to help. Not sure how.

I KNOW I’m amazing and bright. So I can’t believe that I’m STILL saying this, but I just want to be more of myself.

I do not doubt my power. But I have some other weird doubts I can’t shake…

Green washing is offensive to me — and most New Age marketing. Don’t waste my time. I love to pay for what I value.

I should journal more, it makes me feel better. Same with meditation. Give me a meditation and tell me exactly when to do it and I’ll do it. I want to.

You know, I just need to hang out in a cafe by myself, want to come? (Yes!) I’m obsessed with DIY sites, life-hacking shit. And Spotify.

I want to be of service and I want to be selfish. Now’s the time. It’s the Year of the Woman.

I’m always telling everyone else what to do all of the time—my team, my babe, my kids, my clients—I’d love to have SOMEONE I TRUST just tell me what to do…what shit to buy, how to clean out bad energy and cut cords.

I’m snacking on media all the time…barf. I should just unsubscribe to everything. I just want beautiful things everywhere. Eyelash serum and crypto-currency—what’s the deal?

FEMINISM. Sophisticated. Deeper. Conscious consumption. Minimalism…I get it, but like, I need art on my walls. Don’t give me any extreme stuff. That’s the problem, everything is too fucking loud and extreme right now.

Can you mail me something? With a stamp on it? I want some beautiful mail again. And, a poem. Ya…I’d love a poem that says how I feel.


Those are answers from some of my closest friends. And me.
Here are the questions—which I am now asking YOU:

What’s the drag in your life? The general pain points.
What do you love, crave, want?

How could I help you with that?

I’m doing something I haven’t done before. I’m asking people—the twibe—what they want before I go off and make it. Usually, I hide for a few months and pop something out. I can see a lot of us doing things, in the best sense, that we haven’t done before. Because of what’s happening on the crazy surface, we are shifting from the depths.

I’m bone-Soul aching for simplicity and connection, like cold fingers want a campfire. And I neeeed to make something that goes deep and holds us together for a while. I have some new ideas. But since I consider me writing + you reading a relationship…then I want to start with a direct inquiry. Earnestly. This isn’t just a product dev troll. When I asked my friends these questions, the conversation charged us up. We’re still talking about what we talked about. We crave the same things.

or just send me one sentence, via email by clicking here.

What’s the drag in your life? The general pain points.
What do you love, crave, want?

How could I help you with that?

The definite plan: I’m going to go make something for us. Just need to figure out what it is…

For Love,



Rally the tribe. Please press forward. xo

[LIGHT WORK] We can’t get to the light, until we understand the suffering.

I’ve struggled for a long time with wondering if pain and suffering were essential to growth. Are they essential to me being a more expanded, clear minded, loving, joyous, sexy human being? Do I have to hurt to get there? Well, I fucking hope not… but I haven’t figured out a way around suffering yet.


[LIGHT WORK] The upside of suffering… sort of.

You see, there is suffering in the sensitivity. It hurts to feel. And we’re raised to strive—to desensitize—and it’s killing us. I think the strength is in opening. That opening to feel is where resiliency is born.

[LIGHT WORK, Ep. #1] Friends, Lovers, and Therapy5

[LIGHT WORK] The union. The bliss. The bind…Friendship is EVERYthing.

I want to go deep into this conversation about creating Fulfilling Friendships. I’ve got lots to say about engaged listening, self respect, breaking up (when necessary), and celebrating our friend-loves. I’ve also got plenty of opinions and practices for self-compassion, deep spiritual devotion, healthier relationships with our damn phones, and better quality sleep.

[LIGHT WORK] Friends, Lovers, and Therapy

I asked about a zillion people what they wanted more of in their lives. The #1 craving, by far: more fulfilling FRIENDSHIPS. We’re connection starved, we know this. Let me give you a peek into my own circle. In this first episode of LIGHT WORK, I use my own friends as how-to examples for creating radical support and sweetness in your life.

Do not doubt the wisdom of your rage

Do not doubt the wisdom of your rage. (inspired by recent events)

Popularity isn’t always true power. Money isn’t always success. Experience does not guarantee wisdom. Question it all. And do not doubt the wisdom of your rage.

GOOD MANNERS and some wuv. We could all use more of them-feature

GOOD MANNERS and some wuv. We could all use more of them.

There are still some basic good manners that should prevail no matter our generation, station, or affiliation. Here’s what it might mean to be classy, kind, and considerate whenever you are able (and we are almost always able).


I made something new for you. For US.

The LIGHT WORK series will unfold over six episodes. These are girlfriend-style sermons on serving the world while staying sane, cosmic connectedness over tech addiction, self compassion and more fulfilling friendships. Poetry. Hilarity. Peeks into the personal.


Girlfriend-style sermons on saving the world while staying sane; choosing cosmic connectedness over tech addiction; self compassion and more fulfilling friendships—from Danielle LaPorte, a member of of Oprah’s Super Soul 100 and author of The Desire Map. How can you feel more lit up, closer to what matters without losing your edge? Tune in for Danielle’s poetic and often hilarious straight-talk on self-realization.


Update for my peoples: Clarity on my new thing. It has a name. And you may want to make some space for it.

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.
