What is a love lifestyle all about?
Love is a lifestyle - not a sometimes thing. In order to lead a life of love, it's important to get your mindset and heartset right and that takes deep spiritual exploration.
This site is a hub for guidance, tools, strategies, and community to help you intentionally live with love.
Why learn from me?
There are a lot of teachers in the world - a lot of leaders, books, and classes.
I'm not like them.
I'm a born intuitive raised by two ordained ministers. I've lived abroad and around the US. I'm a classically trained artist, but I also wrote and performed music. I spent decades writing everything from poems to essays, novels and reference.
I am steeped in Spirit and creativity.
Through this, I was able to receive and give unconditional love.
This leads me to a simple truth: I love you. We may never have met, but I love you. It doesn't matter who you are, what you've done - it doesn't. You are a part of the human family which means you are precious to me.
Because you are precious to me, I want you to feel happy and loved every day of your life. I want to share the things I've learned to feel this way, because you deserve it.
You deserve to feel this way.
This is why I share my core teachings freely on my blog. Many of my practices I share on my blog and in my weekly newsletter, The Compassion Letter. For those who want more guidance and care, I have my course, The Heart Unboxed: How to Love the Unloveable. If you want personalized attention and guidance, I also offer coaching services.
Wherever you are in your journey, there is something here for you.
Who I am
I have done many things, and when I list them out, it makes me sound like some kind of superhero (I've written about it here). It sounds intimidating to read my "accomplishments:"
17+ books published
2 music albums written and recorded
BA in Peace and Conflict Studies
MA in Global and International Studies
Creator of the Compassion Letter
Host of the Intentional Writer Interview series and group
Creator of The Heart Unboxed Course
Lived in India
Lived in Hungary
Got married twice to the same man (that's a story for another time...)
Taught art to children and adults
Had solo shows of my artwork
Keynoted at conferences
I won't go on because frankly, these things are not important. The thing that you need to understand about me is that I thought I was a failure for a long time. I denied who I was. I denied my spirituality. I was both unloveable and unloving.
I didn't recognize it.
It took me 31 years to figure it out.
And it was all because I lost everything in 2013 and was forced to confront my truth. Over the course of two years, I studied. I read every book I could. I read articles, blogs, took classes, talked with friends, journaled, published, and meditated.
At the end of this intense exploration, I was a completely different person. I owned and embraced my abilities. I felt happy every day. I felt love for myself and others. My whole life transformed and continues to grow more wonderful with each new day.
I experience joy, peace, and love every day of my life.
Some time in the middle of that process, I was driven to share my lessons with others so anyone could feel this way. My work, like my life, shifted.
It is my sincerest wish that you benefit from my lessons. You don't have to struggle. You don't have to feel guilty, ashamed, angry, afraid, or sad. You can feel love now.
