Dancing the Feminine Rhythm

I am honored to Welcome Susan Gala, a Holistic Pelvic-core therapist as our Guest Blogger, take it away Susan:

A woman who is embodied in her pelvis is dancing in her feminine rhythm. She owns her power, her sensuality, and her loving heart without compromise.

From this deep core of embodiment a woman creates her desires.  This is where she begins to live in harmony fully integrated into her rhythm.

She is  embodied in her presence fully aligned and balanced.  She owns her inner passion and  radiant glow.  She is devoted to being present in her senses, in her breath, and in her bodies sensations.

Most women are scared to fully be present in their bodies, and retreat into their head, leaving their bodies to become a shell. We lose touch with  our desires, our sensual radiance, and our deepest feminine rhythm when we are trapped in our pelvis.

Look How Far We Have Come | BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Breast Cancer AwarenessBreast Cancer Awareness month, is an important time for reflection. I was thinking what I could say that hasn’t been said in the last two weeks, so I thought I would share a story with you.

When I was very small, maybe 6 or 7 years old, I remember a friend of my mother’s came to visit. I couldn’t take my eyes off her arm. It was twice the size of her left arm and I wondered how strange that looked. Mom said that she was not feeling well and she had an infection. Less than a year later, I found out Mom’s friend had passed away. She had breast cancer.

Shea Butter, The Karite Tree and Your Youthful Skin

Karite Tree BranchThis change of season is brutal on our skin. Ladies, this is the time of year I remind you to moisturize from head to toe — but with oil, not lotion. Lotion is water-based. Use pure oil (I like shea oil) after the shower, and let it absorb before putting on your clothes. And don’t forget your feet!

Shea butter has been used for centuries for its unsurpassed ability to protect and regenerate the skin. It comes from the nut of the Karite (ka-ree-tay) tree, which grows throughout West Africa. The Karite nut is edible and contains 1-3 seeds surrounded by a thin brittle hull. The creamy substance, known as shea butter, is produced from these seeds.
