Discovering the Art and Beauty in Imperfection and Impermanence

Discover the secrets and hidden gifts of Wabi-Sabi – an intuitive appreciation of transient beauty and a zen-lens on life. The spirit of Wabi-Sabi, ever-present in Japanese culture and tea ceremonies, invites us to see that true beauty is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. In this social media age with the pressure to be flawless, and camera-ready at all times; with our chronic angst about not being or having enough and constant comparison - measuring our messy behind-the-scenes lives to other glossy, carefully curated highlight reels, Wabi-Sabi offers an antidote. It’s [...]

The Wabi-Sabi Well Podcast is Live!

I never thought I'd start a podcast. It wasn't something on my wish list. It just sort of happened. After a year of sleep deprivation, brain fog and postpartum hibernation I was pretty excited to feel an ember of ambition return. For the first time in a long time there was fire in my belly. It was time to rise up, pull the nursing pads out of my bra and get back on the road to writing my first book. Back story: A year ago, I was approached by a [...]

What My Workouts Look Like: Second Trimester

A lots changed since this picture was taken. Back then our little Brie/osh bun was about the size of a Brioche bun. Now he’s somewhere between a cantaloupe and a cauliflower. So I’m in pelvic-floor-preservation mode. Heads up! For those who don’t know, pelvic floor is the sling of muscles at the base of your pelvis, which support the bladder, bowel, vagina and uterus. Running, and other high-impact activities like jumping already put a lot of pressure on these muscles. In my first trimester I was training for a marathon. [...]

New Year. New Stories

Lately I’ve found myself complaining. A lot. Mostly to Josh (my partner) and although they’re valid points, I’ve instructed him to cue, “NEW STORY” as a way of reminding me to ~ interrupt irritation with appreciation The thing is, there is always more than one truth existing at a time. Yes, it very well might be a thousand degrees and the heat rash on my chest is a true story but complaining has never been a comfortable fit for me. It feels heavy and contracted and amplifies irritability. My resolve [...]

The Mindfulness Master Class: Clear Unwanted Habits & Ease Anxiety

Raise a hand if you're a comfort eater, a self aversion artist or a take-the-edge-off-aholic? Just think, right now, across our vast land, untold hands are rising up. Put 'em high, I say and consider it a collective salute. ;) We all have habits that don’t serve us. For some, it’s chain eating chips, binge watching Netflix or having a cheeky glass or two (too many). For others, it's a little more extreme. Regardless of where they sit on the severity spectrum, I'm guessing life would be sweeter without them, right? For those of you just getting to know me, I [...]

Introducing the new Mindfulness Master Class!

We all have an unwanted habit or few. For some, it's taking the edge off with comfort food or a few glasses of red. For others, those unwanted habits have grown into addictions, disorders and compulsive behaviours. Mindfulness is the Buddhist practice of being aware, moment-to-moment. It’s sitting with yourself, instead of reaching for an external stimulus or fix. Mindfulness gives us the space to consciously choose. Each time you are able to create that space for choice, you reclaim your power and that confident sense of self-control. They say, [...]

The Magic of Meditation: My Story

I didn’t seek out meditation. Nobody pointed me in that direction, though they probably would’ve had they known the truth. I was good at keeping secrets and had been hoarding closet skeletons since my early teens. I was a polite catastrophe, a sophisticate of mask-making and self-medication 101. You see, somewhere between the breezy-daffodil-days of primary school and new paradigms of puberty blues, something happened. I got waylaid, wandered right off the path of wholehearted and happy and started loitering for long periods of time in what Rumi would poeticize [...]
