A (free) holiday survival kit for family (dys)functions


For The Black Sheep and mystified, the wounded healers and middle children, for all the adult children who’d rather a root canal than go to Aunt Ellen’s for turkey dinner…


Dear fellow grown up,

You’re someone’s boss. Your friends think you’re wise and hilarious and together. You can dress yourself. And yet… at some point this season, you may find yourself ready to rage n’ crumble like it’s 1989. (No one can wipe out years of good therapy like kinfolk can, amiright?)

My friend, let’s get you centered in your truth and prepped for these choice gatherings… so you don’t end up in the bathroom drunk-dialing your therapist, or your high school sweetheart who’s now married with 3 kids.

Allow me to introduce to you…

A holistic survival kit for
family (dys)functions—
and whenever your “people”
don’t feel like your PEOPLE.

Just a few reminders of how to bring your adult-heartedness to the table, served with a side of comedy, a spoon of esoterica… Oh, and the most pump-you-uppiest playlist ever.

Rock on, Ugly Ducklings turned into Swans. Rock right through the holidaze. GET ROCK STEADY HERE—IT’S FREE + (HOPEFULLY) FUNNY.

Love + gluten-free stuffing,

Naked Prayer

Naked prayer.

I’ve always prayed. To heal. To have. I pray for people I love and people I have a hard time liking. I’ve sat in prayer circles petitioning rain and for someone’s cancer to dissolve. I know dozens of prayers from various faiths. I’ve published prayers. Danced them. Sang them. Sweat them. In reverence, in shock, in exquisite thanks.

I pray differently now.

New holiday traditions, to sweeten the chaos

There’s a lot about the holidays I look forward to. The beautiful rituals, and being with people I love, and Jesus (one of my true loves). But… there’s a lot about the holidays in North America that I could do without. So I try to keep this season as gentle as possible. Here’s my way of sweetening the chaos and creating beauty that doesn’t weigh heavy on Mother Earth…
