My Experience in Prison

My Experience in Prison

  For the last few weeks, Chris and I have been volunteering at the Denver Women’s Correctional facility along with our amazing mentors at Turning the Wheel. On the ride there the first night, I was told, “Make sure to be polite. We’re going to be dealing with policemen, so we need to just follow instructions, be polite, say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’” I thought to myself: Yeah, of course. I don’t need the reminder.

Then I'm told that DWCF has the highest rate of reported staff sexual assault. Immediately my rebel was like: Oh, if ANY of those cops so much as give me a LOOK, I swear! But then I was like: No, no. Take a breath. There is no way for me to know who has done what. Put your attention on the group we're serving - not the cops. And then my mind started playing out scenarios - very unlikely scenarios - like me finding out the cops who do this and somehow rescuing all the people who have been affected.

Shit. I don’t think I’m ready for this just yet.

4 Ways to make Dating Fun & the Neuro-Science Behind it

4 Ways to make Dating Fun & the Neuro-Science Behind it

  Check out the new article in the Elephant Journal a fantastic international blog that we love. Here is  snippet of the article here:

Dating is supposed to be fun!

Meeting up with someone new, going to a cool spot, seeing if we click, maybe finding love. It sounds awesome (cue cartoon “wah-wah” sound here).

So, why isn’t it?

According to our research, the top reasons are:

  • Confusion and worry about what dating means and how our date perceives us
  • Anxiety about needing to find a soulmate
  • Relying on meeting people online
  • Taking it too seriously

Today marks one of the most important days of my life...the second anniversary of when I met him. Just before that day, I had read a post on facebook by him that was asking whether people thought that making out at a snuggle party was sexual or not.

My immediate reaction was: “EW! What a CREEP!”

He was one of those people with whom I was “friends” on facebook, but really didn’t know why other than some mutual friends.

Later in the week on the Solstice 2013, I’m on Gold Hill with a few real life friends at an Ecstatic Dance event. After a few hours of dancing, it was pretty much time to go, so I took one last flailing twirl of my body [if you’ve seen me dance, you probably know the move]...and BAM! Danced right into the chest of a big tree-bear-man person.

Arise Music Festival kinda changed my Life

Arise Music Festival kinda changed my Life

We each wrote about Arise from our own perspectives...

Kendra's Post:

I’m not gonna lie: When I looked at the lineup for Arise Music Festival, I felt pretty “on the fence.” But once Chris and I decided to offer coaching sessions throughout the weekend, I got excited about the prospect and aligned with the decision to go. I was fully expecting ease, fun, and magic. Holy shit was I right!

Arise is not just a music festival. It’s got a heart beat. You can feel it in the music, in the workshop tents, throughout the vendor lane, amongst the crowd, and within each individual.

Diversity & Inclusion – Love Has No Labels

Diversity & Inclusion – Love Has No Labels

Just yesterday, we were saying to each other. How do we encapsulate our perspective of knowing our one-ness and honoring our unique-ness when it comes to dating? A view that is a liiiiiittle different from many of the other mainstream dating experts that promote things like:

  • How to get into a woman’s mind
  • Here are the 7 crucial rules to know about dating men
  • The main things men look for in a woman
  • Signs that a woman is not interested

These headlines say that all men are a certain way and all women are a certain way. Learn their secrets and follow this set of rules in order to get their love.

Well, frankly, we think that’s a crock o’ shit.

Evolving Love through Touch

Evolving Love through Touch

Last night was an awesome celebration of love and human connection.

We hosted a snuggle party and viewing of the movie " Cuddle- The Documentary " of which Kendra and I have central roles.  We had 28 people all cozied up on a cold winter's night. I want to thank you Jason O'Brien for making the movie and all your hard work , Sasha for co-hosting and everyone who supported us and yourselves by attending. I hope the movie changes hearts and minds as to the importance of more loving non-sexual touch. 

It is a very personal glimpse into a period of my life that has transformed me in positive ways seen and unseen. My ability to recognize love within myself and to receive, give , attract and spread more love with compassion without fear or judgement. I am forever grateful.

To me, kids are like boats. It's awesome when a friend has one. Period.

ust as a preface: After a recent and yes, belated obsession with "Breaking Bad" - Chris decided to dress as Walt, so for me, it was either blue meth or Skyler. When I realized that dressing as blue meth would take finding a clear trash bag and some kind of blue and white cubes to wrap all around me, I felt like stuffing my chest with 14 pairs of socks and rolling up a down jacket for my belly would make a super easy, pregnant Skyler. Chris took a picture of me before going to a Halloween party, saying "We have big news." Here it is again...

A Theory of Love: L = FT2

A Theory of Love: L = FT2

Almost everybody wants to love and be loved.  The question on many people's minds is: how do we get there? Attracting and growing the love we want can sometimes seem like Eisenstein's theory of relativity  E=MC2,  a mysterious equation that we have all heard about but don't usually understand. The handed down idea is that love is something you search for to complete yourself. It's a destination and something that is to be fought for, fallen into, and obtained in order to feel. Well I think it's high time I challenged this flawed belief system and redefine what I want.

Then it hit me in my own entirely unscientific but easily excitable way.

Einstein's E=MC2 equation points to the formula for love. Say whaaaa???
