A Soundfull Birth™: Remembering the Blessing Way

With this fourth pregnancy, I’ve focused on embracing the sacredness, beauty, and divinity within the preparation for the right of passage of birthing and of re-entering motherhood. Instead of skipping to thoughts of the end result (Zion, a healthy baby boy in my arms), I’ve allowed myself to sink deeply into the process and journey of carrying my child. Alongside embodied integration of my spiritual practices, sadhanas, and inner feminine guidance, I dove into research of Sacred Pregnancy and Sacred

Mother’s Day Blessings!

Hello beautiful ones, Mother’s Day is this Sunday here in the states, and while this holiday is often overly commercialized, I see it as a beautiful opportunity to show our mothers how much they mean to us (whether they are still with us in this lifetime or not). Additionally, honoring the positive aspects of our mothers can be very healing for us personally, and nurturing to the aspect of our psyches that acts as our own “inner mother.” I’d like

Reflection: A Medical Anthropological Pilgrimage by Dr. Kathia

I’d like to share with you today about a spiritual learning intensive and remembrance, intensified in January of 2015, back home on my pilgrimage through the ancient Maloti Mountains. It was such a déjà-vu experience – one that I seek wherever I travel now in order to enrich my anthropological experiences.     I was transported back in time to an era where people dwelled in caves and in fact still do.

2015: a Cheerful Heart Reflection

Awe….is the word I would use to define these past 12 months of the Lunar cycle. How magical is it to bring this year to a closing with the last full moon falling on Christmas day. This is the first time since 1977 the full moon will be on Christmas. 1977 was my birth year and my last childhood Christmas in Paris, my place of birth before I journeyed to grow up in Africa. The awe stems form the “reverence”

About Town Looks Back at 2011’s Best Parties

The other day we were asked to compile a list of About Town’s favorite parties of the year. News organizations always do these year-end recaps. They say it’s to put a nice bow on the end of the year, but really it’s just so they can sucker you into reading their articles or watching their clips one last time. You’re watching CNN, and they’re like, Qaddafi is dead, and you’re like, again, I thought he has been dead for ages, what is
