curious about how my trip has been going?

Céad míle fáilte, mo chairde - dear ones -

Last night, I was watching a movie and was startled by people driving on the right hand side of the road. Instinctively, it struck me as wrong. I’ve also started passing slower vehicles confidently and can parallel park on the left side.

I guess… I live here now?

And yet, I’m at the point in the trip where time is counting down, not up.

5 weeks left.

I’m part exhausted, part enlivened, part ready for some ‘normalcy’, part still soaking it all up, part completely different, part only beginning to notice the changes in myself, part already planning my next trips back.

Most of the places I’ve been spending my nights haven't been quiet enough to record podcast episodes and my moving schedule hasn’t allowed me to commit to guests.

But in this cute, little, chilly (some day I will actually stay in a camper or RV in the seasons they’re meant for, I promise) camper outside of Westport in Co Mayo, Ireland; I sat down and put some words to some of what this trip has meant to me so far.

And now the episode is out for you to listen to.

So welcome back, fáilte ar ais, around the fire with me for part two of my musings. Recorded solo, after a whole lot of mileage, challenges, and small and big joys. You’ll hear me share some of the themes and intentions I’ve been tending to as I’m opened up by being out of my normal routines.

Themes like:

  • coming back alive;
  • trying too hard;
  • choosing to trust in benevolence;
  • grief;
  • unlearning comfort as the goal;
  • using my own social nervous system as a weapon against myself;

… and probably some more.

Fairly short and sweet, I hope you feel the lightness in it. I hope you find something inspiring. I hope you find it says something of importance and also a whole lot of nothing, at the same time.

And I hope, when the time comes to just be in silence together, you feel it too, your own enoughness, wherever and whenever you find yourself tuning in.

Grá mór (big love),


P.S. I'm also having surges of creativity around how to bring the initiations of this trip to you, too. It'll be a whole other adventure to see what those become.

I care with every fiber of my being that you, a creature of soul and soil, are trying to thrive in systems not designed for you. Where ancient wounds of disconnect, inherited traumas, and misalignments with our over-culture leave you feeling out of place, too much, or like a canary in the mine, I see invitations back deeper into your own aliveness; vital next steps to a wiser, more relational future. Let’s navigate your big questions and transitions together. I’ll support you living meaningfully in this world even though you may feel like you were designed for a different one. I’ll keep you orienting to the truth, heart, and essential wholeness of who you are at the edge of great joy and when you need your feet held to the fire of your own journey. You can see what I offer: and sign up to get a little bit of me, direct to your inbox!

I've been trying to send you this email all day with my email system glitching. I finally thought I'd found gotten a workaround and the email went out blank. Cue noises of incoherent frustration) Hey, dear wolf pack - What do you think of when you think of violence and peace? Antidote? Opposite sides of a coin? And have you ever experienced shame, judgement, guilt, and anger? Have you felt bad about experiencing any of those? If so - my latest podcast episode is for you. As you may be...

Dear ones - Imbolc is a Cross Quarter celebration - midway between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox; widely celebrated on February 1st each year, although in 2024 the astrologically-derived date is Feb 4 or 5. At its heart, it tells us we are "in the belly," at the beginning of the beginning of Spring. And it invites us to take note of the subtle shifts which herald a larger transition, the tension of opposites and contradictions which exist uncomfortably side by side in any threshold....

Dear ones - A quick reminder that tonight at 7pm ET, we're gathering around a virtual fire for our first 'Sanctuary' gathering. While this will become a paid membership and monthly gathering, for these first few, we're exploring it freely, together. The idea for Sanctuary came from my own heart and soul hunger and those expressed by some of you, and the format has been slowly percolating in my head since middle of last year. I'm super excited for it to finally come forth. Since a few days...
