The Place of Safety Podcast

In 2018 I launched a facebook group designed to support and connect former members of the Worldwide Church of God, with an aim to provide the same kind of moderation and leading to the group that might be found in a counselling group. Unfortunately my own disconnection with facebook as a platform go...

The Power of a Question Mark

At every crucial changing of direction of my life, it has been a question that provoked the shift. "What is the cost to me of being in this relationship?" "If I don't fit here, where do I fit?" "What if I *don't* take this risk?" "What if going bigger was easier than going smaller?" After I allowed ...

Hi, Neighbour!

  Twice within the last week I’ve found myself in the same bizarre conversation: tourists from Europe disparaging the number of Chinese people present in Vancouver, and expressing their belief that “they” are a negative impact on “our” culture here. “They are rude and pushy.” “T...

To the Moon, Sweetheart

Life has gone through some pretty incredible changes in the last 8 months.  I have settled into a new home which gives me the opportunity to expand what I offer as a coach and in building community.  Things have been "sticky" while I get things sorted with my new ventures with very little ...

Transition: When You're Ready to Give Up

My self got scrubbed crystal clear by going through a big cycle of shit. The last half a year was a tough one. A significant relationship cracked, and fell to pieces before I could get myself to stable ground. In the turmoil I grabbed onto a branch that appeared strong and supportive, but snapped as...

I see us struggling quietly, silently, hiding in our homes or rooms or cars, wrestling with fears and doubts about being enough, having what it takes, wo...

InnerSpace

I don’t know what to do with myself. I keep finding myself stranded with hours around me – early morning hours, late evening hours, afternoon hours – in which nothing is demanded, nothing is required, nothing is pressing. And I don’t know what to do with myself. I sit in the absence of a par...

Respecting the Bubble – BLOWN UP!

I recently had a chance to meet up with a very dear friend who breezed into town unexpectedly. In my excitement and anticipation, I told everyone who was willing to listen about our connection, who she was, what I loved about her, how we’d driven each other crazy when we first worked together, and...

Make It Real

O dreamer, dream that dream the one with bright colours and MCEsherlogic fill in the deep places, feel its feels and smell its smells find the spaces where it is a breath away from what you see when awake love it, roll around in it, play with those edges where you feel the membrane is thinnest… te...

How do I ask you for help?

Today I drove to Squamish, a town that has been calling me to move there for quite a while now... insistently, persuasively, tenaciously refusing to let go of my heart.  It has its claws in me. But it's been a dry summer.  I don't have cash in my pocket, and even though I know in my bones ...
