Navigating transition with ease and grace

This life. Beautiful, amazing, messy, miraculous, confusing, ugly, painful. All of it sacred. All of it unfolding perfectly, even when we can't see it in the moment. Even when, in the dark struggle of some phases, we forget how precious all of it is, how the light is still there behind the clouds, how the timing is … Continue reading Navigating transition with ease and grace

Why are women still hiding?

Here's my question: Why is the conversation about women's empowerment still happening in a masculine paradigm?
