Great shot from last night at Scars: A Fashion Show Of Hope! Thank you @__miss__mermaid__ for putting together this fantastic night, @capturing.our.senses.modeling for the shot, @calvinrocks92 for looking fierce as fuck and @kmurphyhair and Tonya and the @paulmitchelledu team at Belleview for epic hair and makeup. You all rock my world! Xxx
A larger whole, of currents.
To be human is to feel. We feel viscerally, (or perhaps not at all sometimes. )
This "feeling" lets us know we're alive as a connection between flesh and mind. As we tap into the deeper currents of this feeling aspect of ourselves, we dissolve. We become part of a larger- perhaps just one other, perhaps a group of 3, perhaps a whole room of humans. The expansion of boundary in this sense is trust, is opening to potential, and softens into a strong vulnerable space where all can happen.
As I write, this seems to be mostly indescribable with specificities of our words. Yet, this "feel" is shared, and known through the look of eyes or shared currents of touch, through dance and song and music, through performance, teaching, group dinners, and ceremonies. We yearn to connect and be a part of this larger undercurrent of humanity.
So, go there. Do it. Open to connection in truthful and small ways at first in conversation, and open to group connections through dance parties, concerts, and classes. But know, it is you who opens.... not these experiences that dissolve you. ✴🌣✴
Morning musings from late night conversations. ♡ love ♡
If you've read this far: come experience my performative experiments with this dissolving

Great post from @evolve_coaching. Training should be catered to our goals 🎯and individual differences👫be it due to postural issues or differences in structure and anatomy (bodytype/ joint levers / limbs lengths) Having a catered training program should take these differences into consideration and then use movements that work best for YOU!
Mistake of the week: Looking at bodybuilder's and physique models, seeing what they are doing in the gym and thinking that's what you should be doing.
No discredit to the any athletes out there and I am sure they will agree!
Let's use the example of doing a behind the neck lat pull down. I'm sure if you go online you will find Phill Heath, Ronnie Coleman and many other top physique athletes doing this. Now you might be thinking I want to look like that so surely I should just do what they are doing. .
Yes and no! Now although this may be a great way for them to hit their lats from a different angle, what you need to ask yourself is: do they have a desk job? Do you? Do they spend hours driving a day? Do you? Do they get regular sports massages? Do you? .
Taking the above into consideration you will most likely benefit from the alternative exercise shown in the video to hit the same muscle group without putting your neck at risk. .
