are you ready to drop secret love bombs?

love is the new religion - quote - brian piergrossi - author life coach spiritual teacher - desiree east I stumbled upon this gem recently, after getting side tracked from a link that my mother-in-law shared to me the other day  (Thanks Lynne!). I thought it was worth a share, and I hope it brightens your week. Welcome to the changing season, sending lots of love your way...

On the surface of the world right now there is war and Violence and things seem dark But calmly and quietly, at the same time, something else is happening underground An inner revolution is taking place and certain individuals are being called to a higher light It is a silent revolution From the inside out From the ground up

You won’t see us on the T.V. You won’t read about us in the newspaper You won’t hear about us on the radio

We don’t seek any glory We don’t wear any uniform We come in all shapes and sizes Colors and styles

Most of us work anonymously We are quietly working behind the scenes in every country and culture of the world Cities big and small, mountains and valleys, in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands

You could pass by one of us on the street and not even notice We go undercover We remain behind the scenes It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit But simply that the work gets done

Occasionally we spot each other in the street We give a quiet nod and continue on our way so no one will notice.

During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs But behind the false storefront, at night is where the real work takes place

Some call us the ‘Conscious Army’ We are slowly creating a new world with the power of our minds and hearts We follow, with passion and joy Our orders from the Central Command The Spiritual Intelligence Agency

We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking: Poems Hugs Music Photography Movies Kind words Smiles Meditation and prayer Dance Social activism Blogs Random acts of kindness

Our work is slow and meticulous Like the formation of mountains It is not even visible at first glance And yet with it entire tectonic plates shall be moved in the centuries to come

Love is the new religion of the 21st century

You don’t have to be a highly educated person Or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it It comes from the intelligence of the heart Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings

Be the change you want to see in the world Nobody else can do it for you

We are now recruiting Perhaps you will join us Or already have. All are welcome… The door is open

~ Brian Piergrossi, (from the book The Big Glow)

Hello Dearest Creative Tribe!!

It's been nearly a year, and I'm officially emerging from maternity leave. I've actually been slooooooowly making the transition, doing a bit of work behind the scenes (both professional and personal growth) and completely immersing myself in the incredible journey that is motherhood. Spiritually wise, I've been committed to taking daily beach walks and occasional hikes to connect with mother earth, as well as, creating sacred space for my personal painting practice by connecting with animal totems that have kept me grounded through this time, reminding me that I am exactly where I need to be.

I wasn't sure how I was going to make an 'official' announcement. Write a new blog post? Throw a (painting) party? Launch a brand-spanking new program? Do a little song, do a little dance?

I really couldn't figure out how to create the perfect way to let you know what I've been up to (or schedule the perfect time to do it, for that matter), until one of my business colleagues, Holly G, invited me to do a fun little video project called, #1min1take. Maybe I will end up doing a little song and a little dance for you!!

This mini video series will be the perfect way to let you know what I've been up to and how I've been able to keep my head in the (creative business) game this past year and what I plan on doing as I transition into working at home as a new mom (BTW, thank you all TONS for the good vibes, sweet blessings, and support you've sent to me, Baby Kirra, and Brendon, as we stumble out of first-year survival mode - WE DID IT!!).

So, here's my welcome back video. (If you'd like to join me at the last-minute for this super duper easy challenge, be sure to visit:

I can't wait for you to meet the new beach babe. Until then, sending much love and creative bliss your way!


thoughts on being a b-school babe (how honest would you like me to be?)

So, if you haven't heard yet, I have taken the leap into Marie Forleo's Rich, Hot, Happy B-School...can I get holla?!! *insert booty-shake* So that's kinda like what it's been like. We are into our fourth week of training, and it has been --- amazing.

an eye opener.




incredibly --- oh, I don't know --- incredibly LIFE CHANGING. I'm having a hard time finding a word to describe the fabulous-ness of Marie, her team, and the supportive community of fellow B-schoolers.

I see things so differently, now. Marie takes no B.S., and teaches you to do the same; on how to be a business woman who cuts to the chase, focuses on the results, while making a difference in people's lives and keeping your integrity and honesty in the game, while also using your intuition, gut, and inner wisdom --- to be as successful as you can be, while reaching your full potential so that you can better serve others.

If there is one thing I know for sure, is that I am exhausted. I have been busting my tush off, amidst moving back to the little, cozy beach house that we lived in, before we left for Bali. So, that explains why I have been MIA for the last few weeks on this little blog, here. That, and spring is officially here, so that means I am full steam ahead with design work, art projects and new coaching gigs. Yaaay. (But crazy at the same time --- booked a month out, and trying my best not to get too brain-fried!)

This is where the work-life balance comes into play. I have been trying my best to stay focused with B-School, so much, that I am practically obsessed with learning and implementing the material. BUT, Marie has been wonderful at giving all of us fellow B-School Babes loving reminders of being gentle with ourselves and taking the time out for a little R & R and self-care. This is why I love her so much, and how can I say 'No' to that?

So, with that in mind, I have been treating myself to weekly Zumba classes and dance classes. Quickies, to shake the edge off, if you will. And on the weekends, I try my best to focus on a few hours of art making and a little creative play. Yes, my house is still in shambles, with boxes stacked in corners, but little, by little I have been settling back into a groove.

There is still a TON I could share about B-School and the incredibly intelligent, smart, and beautiful community of B-School Babes (and dudes!). People from all walks of life...artists, chefs, nutritionists, brick-and-mortar retailers, non-profits, health coaches, fitness coaches - you name it. The most exciting part for me is meeting fellow artists, retreat planners, creative coaches, and other surfer girls!! SO fun. Oh, AND other Desire Mappers (via Danielle LaPorte), as well as, LKR peeps (via Laura Roeder, of Creating Fame).

Amazing, amazing.

So anyway, enough about me.

This is about you. How can I be of service to you? By now, you know who I am and what I love to do. What would you like to learn from me?

If you haven't filled out this quick little SURVEY, yet, please do:


Your answers will help me connect with my audience (that would be you, my friend) on a more authentic level. :)
