Just as important as finding out who you are is letting go of who you’re not. Shaman are keenly aware of the hiding places of your masks, even the ones that weren’t hidden by you. Even the ones that linger from past lives. When you let go, you rise. #ayahuasca#werise#plantmedicine
Last Saturday we had 74 girls come out and take part in our January Skate Rising event!
Over 300 pairs of socks were received to benefit the homeless community during these winter months in San Diego.
The girls heard from @thekelsays @beaverfleming @yogaforskatebarders and two ten year old participants, Aubrey Kelsay and Stella Snyder, about the power of your mindset. They learned what a growth mindset is and that each of us can accomplish our goals through hard word and dedication. .
Each girl hand picked their own “Growth Journal” for 2018 and took a few minutes to write down one goal they commit to try or work towards before our February event. .
@nealmims ran a very fun and successful skate clinic along with other supportive volunteers like @beaverflemming @skatingfashionista @angelastrong @og_brittney @zylerskates @jakesk8erkid and more!
A special thank you to @ninashoots for capturing the day and for being the creative designer for Skate Rising. .
Thank you to everyone that makes these events possible to benefit our community and these awesome girls! @nekterencinitas @hesserod @skatexs @mygreymatterz @sycktrix .

Kids need to be taught to respect one another and encourage one another. This is especially true when it comes to girls. My daughter is fighting the struggles of Middle School; I know the dreaded era! I keep telling her that when someone puts her down you just keep your head up and stick up for yourself. I also tell her to continue being you, be kind and encouraging because you never know what that person is going through. As we turn into Women, it unfortunately doesn’t get any better; some people still act like they’re in Middle School. When we see a co-worker get promoted, we need to compliment her; use that as a goal for yourself. Don’t hate on her because she got the promotion; it just wasn’t your time yet. See a woman in the store and you love her hair? Tell her! She is probably fighting tears back on the inside and needs to hear it.

We’re loving this picture from @courtneyhbird of last night’s panel discussion following the film. It was amazing to have an open dialogue about race and police relations, and the ways in which we can all improve these things in Fort Worth and beyond. Be a part of the solution! #76105doc#WeRise
As warriors we rise. This past weekends Align and Refine intensive gave us the ability to rise and we look forward to next weekend as we Break on Through to the next level with @elliebernsteinyoga.
This sunday afternoon we had the chance to sit down with Rachel Hackbarth and CBS DFW to talk about @76105doc premiere. Check out the piece from sunday night on CBS News at 10, and thank you for joining us yesterday for the premiere screening of the film! #76105doc#WeRise
This year as the humanity of some is still being denied in Libya, as Native American women still face the highest rates of rape and assault in America (2.5 Times more likely to experience sexual assault than any other group), as a little boy was called a monkey, reminding us the familiar language of social Darwinism, as an entire continent of souls, hearts, and resilience, was reduced to a "shithole", let’s remember these words from #mlk , let’s think about what is left of our humanity, what we are okay to witness, what sufferings we close our eyes on, what struggles we don’t join. "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing” *** E. Burke
The spirit of the valley never dies;
This is called the dark female.
The doorway into the dark female
Is called the root of heaven and earth.
It is there within us all the while;
Draw upon it as you will, it never runs dry.” -Tao Te Ching 6
She’s reclaiming her dark feminine as she heals the split. The word dark has been used to scare her away from the fullness of her essence for a long time. She was programmed into a belief that only light is pure, and the dark is evil. And thus was she separated from her power. She was allowed to live and experience only the ‘good’ girl, and a very large part of her existence became unsanctioned. She got split between good & bad, and she was told that the good would get her acceptance & the bad would get her rejection. Her raw, mystical, wild, shamanic self was banished into the underground, to be perhaps visited in dreams.
Her dark is nothing but her denied feminine. It is primal, NOT evil.
As her fear is disappearing, she’s refusing to live in guilt anymore. She’s untangling from shame, the single most powerful weapon to chain her. Her frequent journeys underground have revealed to her the immense power of the dark. She’s discovering she was never evil. All that she had hidden away in the dark was actually quite cool. It was just that she would have been too dangerous. She’s reclaiming her wildness fully and unabashedly now. She knows that the dark is where things take birth. Deep in the earth’s womb is where the seed germinates, deep in her dark womb is where life begins to form.
A connection to the dark brings her face to face to her mystical connection with life, death and rebirth. She accessing the power of blood mysteries. She’s travelling to the center of the universe, the black light of the cosmic womb, her most nourishing place now. She’s reclaiming Kali, Lilith, Baba Yaga in her.
In her embrace of her dark feminine, she’s healing the split of spirit from matter, heaven from earth, sacred from profane, human from divine, light from dark.
She’s sacred. And it has no opposite. #darkfeminine#darkmother#embodiment#womenscircle#womenscirclebournemouth#empoweringwomen#werise

It was my honor to partner up with @zozuproject for the “From #Selfie to Selfless” book launch event. All profits from books sold that evening went to benefit children & educators in Arua, Africa. ✨ I AM SO EXCITED TO SHARE that we raised enough money to give TWO TEACHERS all the curriculum and books they need, along with workbooks for the kids. There’s about 40 children per class for the year, so that means that 80 children will learn & grow from this gift. Additionally, these books can be reused for about 5 years, so up to 400 children will benefit from the knowledge in these books and resources!!!! 🙌🏼🙌🏾🙌🏻🙌🏿🙌🏽 Education will give these kids a FUTURE they never thought possible, and it provides local educators WORK that they desperately need! 🙏🏼🙏🏾🙏🏻🙏🏿🙏🏽💥💯✨💜🌎🌍🌏 WE CAN MAKE A CHANGE, together.

“THE TIME IS ALWAYS RIGHT TO DO RIGHT” Dr Martin Luther King and his amazing wife Coretta were extraordinary leaders, standing up, using their inspiring voices to ensure all people have freedom. MLK remains a beacon for hope and a reminder it is ok to wear your heart on your sleeve and to bravely keep on marching forward for the change you wish to see. 💛✌🏻#happybirthday#MLK#lovewins#werise
Prolific imagery on a day of celebration, Martin Luther King Jr , we reflected not just on the virtue of civil rights, but on world affairs, and policy issues. A man of the world is to be honored not only for eloquent speech, but for his actions and shaping our democracy. "We hold these truths are to be self evident that all men are created equal". @enkone #artists#mlkday#laart#martinlutherkingjr#werise#naacp#myhero
“Wait, what, this is what he wants? Isn’t it what you want?”
New blog post up! Read Kathryn’s story, the all too familiar tale of second guessing your feelings because shouldn’t you want a boyfriend...any boyfriend?
Sorry we have been a little MIA - many of the admin team hard at work dancing in APAP|NYC showcases this past weekend - but! We are back and still accepting stories and dollars! Share your experiences, share our experiences, like us, follow us, repost us, and consider donating to our ongoing indiegogo. All funds at this point will go straight to supporting our amazing choreographers: @deannapellecchia of @kairosdances , @sugardish of @lipstickcriminals and creator of @slutcracker , @ayshadances , @kriscross392 , @tinyasiancanoe , @aud_mac22 , @cubes_brohannes , @modern_connections , and Sarah Thorne. Choreographers and dancers are notorious for accepting as little as $0.50/hour for their work: in a world where women are already undervalued in terms of salary, authority, and hell, basic humanity... shouldn’t we do everything we can to pay these ladies what they’re worth? Damn straight we should!
Had the pleasure of attending the MLK parade and I took this picture. Not bad huh? It was so amazing to see all races come together to celebrate an honorable man and his dream. Makes me also celebrate the fact that this time last year #j15 , I decided to relocate to #Houston . NO job lined up, with only my 401k & little savings, faith and support from close friends and family I took the leap to start living my dream in my dream city (Dallas peeps try not to gag)!!!! It wasn't easy, but I thank God everyday for his grace that I am able to testify how good He is! Moving to Houston is only the beginning, and if I can trust and beleive God for small blessings I know bigger blessings are on the way! So stay encouraged dreamers and know that with faith in Jesus and hard work, you too can make your dream a reality. :
Let us also reflect on the words of Dr. King. :
: " Let us not wallow in the valley of
I say to you today, my friends, though, even though
we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have
a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American
dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise
up, live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold the
truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.' #drmartinlutherkingjr#ihaveadream#speech#MLK#werise#dream
