The Connection Catalyst: Grab your spot for an upcoming Seattle workshop:

Authentic Relating, Death Talk, & Creative Writing

Read my latest stories and posts:

Vulnerability in friendship, mantras for real people, and the definition of authentic relating...

Out with the networking and in with the meaningful and authentic connections.

I want to know what makes someone's heart pound, not what they "do" for a living. Vulnerability and presence is a must.

I believe we can have personal growth and spirituality without all the pretentious bullshit.

I happily embrace my contradictions every day. We can cuss and drink beer, then mediate and read Tarot. I wouldn't have it any other way.

There is power in our words. The words we write, speak, and think. Which are you choosing?

Whether you're journaling, getting to know someone new, or writing marketing copy... the words you choose can make all the difference.

Travel, adventure, and community are what drive me to create my own happiness.

I started listening to what I really need, and this has led to some of the most amazing experiences, and important decisions, of my life!

    A few months ago, I consciously decided to be more vulnerable in making new friends and connections. To not think about coming on too strong or what’s socially “appropriate” and especially side stepping the fear that they wouldn’t reciprocate the feelings.What […]
