My journey on a stormy sea

and the practices that anchor me

I’m not sure when I first heard the term “nervous wreck”, but I remember the day when I first understood what it meant. Although it involved a lot pain and a host of difficult decisions, it was also a turning point. It was the moment I committed to living fully, from my heart!

I spent much of my life existing in a near constant state of anxiety. Some of it came from uncertainty (my family had moved more than twenty times before I was twelve), some of it from how little my boundaries were respected (and how much I was shamed for even having them), and some of it came from my deeply unrealized desire for meaningful connection and belonging.


HOW I CONFUSED FITTING IN FOR BELONGING

Like most of of us, the yearning for connection and belonging is strong in me. Being hard-wired for connection is actually part of our human evolutionary history and has kept us alive as a species through all kinds of adversities. We are, by design, intensely social creatures. However, as I have painfully discovered, connecting isn’t always easy, and there are many pitfalls along the way. One of the most common pitfalls is mistaking fitting in for belonging.

“Fitting in is about assessing a situation and becoming who you need to be to be accepted. Belonging, on the other hand, doesn’t require us to change who we are; it requires us to be who we are.” ― Brené Brown

Although I had a strong sense of self from a young age I soon began to notice that my quirky, creative, impassioned way of being in the world was not always welcome. I was told I was too much. Too idealistic. Too energetic. Too creative. Too sensitive. And so I began to modify myself, a little here and a little there, in order to be more accepted. I softened my edges, made myself small, responded subserviently to the needs of others, kept my thoughts, emotions and values to myself — always afraid of offending someone, or being seen for who I really am, and being thrown out of the circle. I was stuck in a loop of people-pleasing, sacrificing my authentic self and what really mattered to me in order to connect.


BREAKING DOWN, BREAKING OPEN

And then finally, I couldn’t do it anymore. I was tired of compromising my values, my boundaries, my inner knowing. Of feeling anxious, small, and unaligned with what really matters to me. And while I may have looked connected on the outside, I was painfully alone on the inside and desperate to make a change.

With an intense hunger I began reading, researching, journalling, taking courses and attending retreats. I wanted to know how to lift the debilitating fog of my anxiety. To feel at home in my body. To connect without losing myself or getting hurt. To free my buried Heidi-ness and begin living more fully from my heart.

What I discovered (and uncovered from deep within me) is both simple and complex. Obvious and elusive. Ancient and modern. Scarce and abundant. It’s a road map for belonging. A path for meaningful connection. A transformative way of being that changes everything!


INSPIRING INNER JOURNEYS

And now I am excited to share my knowledge, tools and experience with you! I have designed this membership to support you in connecting authentically with yourself, others and the world around you, without compromising who you are. And I have chosen the format of weekly guided journeys because I believe that change works best with gentle sustained practice.


TRANSFORMATION TAKES TIME, TENDERNESS AND A LOVING GUIDE

The practices that fuel this membership (sacred sound, iRest® yoga nidra, mindfulness, and holding space) are powerful and time-tested. They are practices of awareness, ease, insight, clarity and inspired action. And together, they can help you transform your relationship with connection and belonging, as they have transformed mine.

I’m not sure when I first heard the term “nervous wreck”, but I remember the day when I fully understood what it meant.

I lived in the isolated and exhausting world of surviving for way too long before I realized that it was possible to live in the connected and energizing world of thriving instead.

I designed this membership so that you never feel as unaligned, trapped or alone as I did…

Want to shift from surviving to thriving?
