About

What is a psychedelic punk rock yogini? It’s the best way I can describe my life if I was going to put a label on it. I’m a singer/musician, writer, painter, and yogini. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, and breath.

This blog is an experiment—a journal of sorts, with scraps of things that thrill me or make me pause. Sometimes it’s a list of my upcoming classes, essays, poems, journal entries, stories, music, culture, alternative healing, video clips, Amazonia, permaculture, yoga, meditation, Beauty and Love, synchronicities—my musings tend to sway toward these things.

I post a few times a month, if not a few times every week. I hope you come by and visit, and comment.

Om shanti~

So much peace in movement, and feeling the body, in breathing and noticing subtle shifts.

1st Chakra: Muladhara ~ Root • Survival • Tribal Power • The Right to Have, To Be • Earth

It’s been a while since I posted first chakra quotes.

“It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.” ~ Irish proverb

“Our cities with their swollen populations and cliff dwelling high-rise buildings are breeding places for loneliness . . . In a world of wheels, old and comfortable groupings of people have disappeared.” ~ Allan Fromme (If those wheels are bicycle wheels, this quote might be vey different).

“The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted, uncared for and deserted by everybody.” ~ Mother Theresa

“’Should’ is a bad place to live, but boy, do we set up a lot of tents there.” ~ Saul Bass

“One has just to be oneself . . . The moment you accept yourself as you are, all burdens, all mountainous burdens simply disappear. Then life is a sheer joy, a festival of lights.” ~ Bhagforest (c) Holly Troywan Shree Rajneesh

“If all you can do is crawl, start crawling.” ~ Rumi

“The important thing is to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.” ~ Charles Dubois

“You have a right to experiment with your life. You will make mistakes. And they are right too. No, I think there was too rigid a pattern. You came out of an education and are supposed to know your vocation. Your vocation is fixed, and maybe ten years later you find you are not a teacher anymore or you’re not a painter anymore. It may happen. It has happened. I mean Gauguin decided at a certain point he wasn’t a banker anymore; he was a painter. And so he walked away from banking. I think we have a right to change course. But society is the one that keeps demanding that we fit in and not disturb things. They would like you to fit in right away so that things work now.” ~ Anais Nin

“Shame is the lie someone told you about yourself.” ~ Anais Nin

“Our entire biological system, the brain and the Earth itself, work on the same frequencies.” – Nikola Tesla

“Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children.” ― Theodore Roosevelt
