Beloved Yearning is an invitation...to come into the softness of presence, underneath the layers...  Unfurl them, one-by-one... Enter the temple of the inner beloved, where shiva and shakti are embraced in an eternal slow dance...  Here, there is nothing to change...  Spiral into to the quiet depths and exquisite tenderness of divine vulnerability and longing...

Into the Light is a whisper of a visual prayer. vocalization & movement; sacred inspiration for this holy time, when we are leaving the deepest darkness and entering into the coming light on winter solstice…a time of great wonder and reflection, of gratitude for the shelter and wisdom of the darkness during this inward cycle; as we now begin to prepare for the expanding light.
