Seeing “hyper” kids through a different lens (ADHD or otherwise)

by Sadee on March 25, 2014

I’m not an expert on ADHD, or children, or any combo or variation thereof. I have simply worked with a lot of kids who either have been diagnosed with ADHD or are suspected of having it.

Today I am going to describe what it is like to listen to these children from a deep place – from a place of having no idea of who or how they should be and simply being very curious as to what is.… Read more

Love feeling awesome, hate willpower?

by Sadee on January 3, 2014

chakolatI like saying “yes”. This is not to be mistaken for being a “yes person”. I just like to follow where Yes leads.

Willpower is, in essence, saying “no” to something. And while the argument can be made that you are saying no to one thing while saying yes to something else, there is still an element of self-control and denial involved.… Read more

Being healthy about your needs

by Sadee on July 13, 2013

What do you needNeeds are a funny thing. First of all, Westerners are really skittish about the subject. The notion of needing anyone or anything beyond the basics of food, shelter, and clothing freaks out many of us.

One of the exercises I will give clients is to do some free writing using these starters as prompts:
I need…I want…I expect…

People generally have no problem with the wanting and expecting.… Read more

Are invisible needs ruining your life?

I’m over here, right next to you, immersed in the complex geometry of being.

While you talk I am noticing the light that emanates from your skin, the dynamic swirl around and through us, the exchange, the disconnect, the circles under your eyes, the slight sadness that plays at the corner of your mouth, the electricity of your hands telling a story, the life that breathes you, all amplifying the great beauty of your being.… Read more

In our overly self-focused society that is captivated by pathology, this notion, like many spiritual notions, has gotten a little twisted.… Read more

Set yourself aside just a little and learn to love a person in ways they find meaningful. This constant focus on “my needs” and “my happiness” and “me, me, me” keeps us very small. And it means we are constantly rejecting love when it doesn’t show up how we think it should.… Read more

Making Monday a No-Blame Zone – will the world tilt off its axis?

by Sadee on January 21, 2013

Recently the term “psychic vampire” came up in conversation where I overheard someone say the reason they are avoiding a certain person is because they are “a psychic vampire”.

I thought how refreshing it would be, and how powerful, if they would have said “I’m avoiding them because I have no idea how to have healthy boundaries with them.”

Or

“I’m avoiding them because I tend to blame them for how they behave instead of taking responsibility for how I behave around them and until I figure out what that’s about for me, I’m going to stay clear.”

I don’t just sit back and watch humans like I’m in a room with a telescope.… Read more

This section of the book is super, super important because it addresses something I’d like to talk about with you today that I hope will help tweak some dials so you can start to practice and enjoy more awesomeness in your life right now.… Read more

Being present to love

by Sadee on January 11, 2013

One of the most beautiful experiences we can have is the opportunity to love. Love is something we can all feel but this doesn’t mean we know how to do it well. Love takes practice. Love takes presence. And love takes two people willing to grow and learn love together.… Read more

Aging as an act of courage

by Sadee on December 6, 2012

by Sadee on December 2, 2012

Strong and supple and magic

by Sadee on November 29, 2012

Humans are amazing creatures. We can do science and write poems. We map stars and we map the inner terrain of the psyche. We make war and we make magic.

Being powerful – being able to respond to life’s call and the undulations of a day, a month, a year – requires that we are both strong and supple.… Read more

And are you still seeking that elusive something?… Read more

True power

by Sadee on November 24, 2012

True power is wholeness coupled with consciousness and vitality.

The person who is unintegrated, viewing power as an eradication of perceived flaws, will feel or be or act weak. And they will think power is something to get, or compete for, as if it is limited and they have to make sure they have enough or more than others – whether or not they are conscious of this.… Read more

Sunday Sermon – A love letter

by Sadee on November 18, 2012

This week I’ve had all kinds of things on my mind – purpose and contributing to the world and how to tell the truth with respect and more.

So I asked what it would like.… Read more

Being judgmental – 5 simple rules for doing it really well

by Sadee on November 14, 2012

A lot of people have the idea that being judgmental is a bad thing. Or, at least, not good.  Here’s the thing – we judge for a reason. And I’m not saying being judgmental is great, but I am saying that if you are going to do it, and you very likely are, even if you’re “conscious”, then at least do it really well.… Read more

Sunday Sermon: Authenticity

by Sadee on November 4, 2012

You may be wondering what a sci-fi musical has to do with authenticity.… Read more

Why the ego is AWESOME

by Sadee on November 2, 2012

The ego gets a bad wrap and I think that’s unfortunate. But before I dive into that, let me first say that I don’t believe in the ego. I think it is something based on an observation through a very particular lens (psychology) to identify something that needed naming for psychology to come together.… Read more

How do we build up the trust within to allow ourselves to trust others?

by Sadee on October 29, 2012

Had some great questions about trust come in from someone in our community (our = you, too) after reading my post “Connection, trust and discovery”.  So I thought I’d share with you as it may be useful.

Q:  How do we build up the trust within to allow ourselves to trust others.Read more

Sunday Sermon: Why spiritual laws like the Law of Attraction aren’t working for you

by Sadee on October 28, 2012

I love spirituality. I love when people ask deeper questions or seek meaning in life beyond the mundane.

What I don’t love are spiritual systems or kinds of thinking that tell people, in ways that seem quite reasonable, that if they are “doing it right” they won’t suffer.… Read more

Stop blaming your body

by Sadee on October 27, 2012

I was doing some research this morning and came across a book claiming “I was poisoned by my body” about how someone cured themselves of leaky gut, fibromyalgia, and multiple chemical sensitivity.

First let me say that it’s great that someone sought natural cures and cleared their health issues.… Read more

Connection and trust and discovery

There is something about connection.… Read more

Making MAGIC – creating your very own creation myth

by Sadee on October 24, 2012

Tools for stress – how engaging the body can bring a shift much more quickly than thought

by Sadee on October 23, 2012

The opposite of love is fear, not hate. ~ Yoko Ono

Years ago a client came to me as a last resort in her quest to deal with her anxiety without going on medication. She had just been to see a psychiatrist who wanted to put her on something that would help with the anxiety as well as her anger outbursts.… Read more

What are your objections to love?

by Sadee on October 20, 2012

This question popped into my head at about 3:30 this morning. I was thinking about how most people think about reality and the assumptions we make, what we take for granted as real – like separation. We live with a cultural myth of there being such a thing as an individual.… Read more

Yoga, sweat, and tears

by Sadee on October 18, 2012

Bio: bi·o/ˈbīō/

Noun: Biology  Adj.: Biological

Self as citizen

by Sadee on October 14, 2012

In order for us to upgrade in any significant way, the individual identity of the self must become that of Citizen.

The context of citizen must always be present, informing our behavior, thoughts, and beliefs, if we are to individually and collectively experience meaning, fulfillment, and an end to global hunger, poverty, war, environmental devastation – you get the idea.… Read more

Sunday sermon – How much can you love?

by Sadee on October 7, 2012

The more open you become to life, the less you resist the urge of love, the more the world around you will shine.

There are a number of reasons for this.

Love is the energy of life. I’m not talking about emotional love – romantic love – friendship love – I’m talking about the love that animates all of life – that calls everything to connection: molecules and beetles and people and trees and rain – even your coffee table is based on connection.… Read more

An incredible habit to cultivate: only seek advice from amazing people

My whole life I have been a kind of witness to the human experience. I have been both perplexed and amazed and saddened and thrilled with the gift of being alive.

Seeing and being the perfection when everything sucks

Poop and dance your way to joy

The Zucchini Milk was a HUGE hit!

Glass of milk with zucchini slicesRecently I was wondering about milk – specifically how many people have dairy allergies and how much nut and seed milk gets used that throws off the balance of Omega 3, 6, and 9 in the body.

So I wondered what else you could make milk out of and ZUCCHINI popped into my head.Read more

One side will make you grow taller, and the other side will make you grow smaller

by Sadee on August 14, 2012

What strikes me as funny about how we anthropomorphize things is how ironically reductionist it is. The truth is we see ourselves in things not because those things are like us, but because life is connected. The ways we want to know ourselves is not in the smallness of making things like us but in expanding our imaginations of what we are – making connections between things is indicative of this.… Read more

The animalization of homosapien: how good is your growl?

by Sadee on March 27, 2012

I wish people would stop trying to transcend everything – like transcendence is some kind of virtue.

People are animals. We have urges, bodies, and instincts as well as intelligence and spirituality and self-awareness. We are very dimensional. And it occurs to me that our grand effort to define ourselves has been composed, largely, of aversions.… Read more

Can we really tell how conscious someone is?

by Sadee on February 25, 2012

I’m so curious about the notion of thinking wrong versus the thinker being wrong. Or thinking right without the thinker being right. And how can we encounter our own ignorance if we don’t share our thoughts? And also, interpreted actions don’t always lead to correct inference of meaning so how do we know how conscious someone really is unless we trust them with their own consciousness?… Read more

Model for Wholeness: A preliminary view

by Sadee on February 21, 2012

There are four facets of wholeness. Wholeness and, consequently, embodiment, is proportionate to how well-developed each individual facet is, as well as how balanced it is with the other facets. In other words, the more we have of each, in balanced proportions to the others, the more whole and embodied we are.… Read more
