Earth Day – wood drum

It’s been a privilege to work with and support @for.the.wild podcast with some music to layer into their incredible storytelling.

Tribute to Roger

This song was recorded during a mediatation focused on Roger right around the time he was unplugged from life support, and I felt his presence so strongly.

Fear challenge: Warriors

Fear challenge: What I’ve noticed…

Practicing it consciously, consistently changes the relationship with fear. It has made me get really familiar with it. Like, i know what it feels like, looks like, what it’s going to do, how it holds me back, and i can put it in a little compartment when it comes up, and give it a little name and have it come sit on the couch with me.
