Suffering is a part of life. The Buddha taught us this when he said, in essence, “Life is Dukkha”. Dukkha is difficult to translate, but suffering is a part of dukkha. So is impermanence and happiness and interdependence. Life is constantly changing and shifting. This is dukkha. Suffering is part of what we signed up […]

Read more

This year I am being called to embody the qualities and core desired feelings that speak to my heart right now: Connection. Devotion. Joy. Freedom. Thrive. Savvy. Brilliance.

Sacred dance. Sacred life.

Sacred Dance with Lisa Beck LivingRead more

Dance, for me,  is a doorway that leads into a world of magic, celebration and self-love. It didn’t used to be this way. I used to compare myself to the other dancers, my body, the way I shook my hips. I wanted to do everything that my teacher did. I wanted to jump as high, […]

I bow deeply to you. I want more of you. I give thanks for you.

To the women in our lives

Latifah. Angelina. Maya. Charlize. Oprah. Marianne. These women inspire me to be powerful, poised, graceful, creative, brilliant, dedicated, caring, generous and beautiful…inside and out. They are in the public eye. They’re famous and glamorous. We see them in the news, social media, in movies and interviews. I’m very grateful that we have so many positive female role models to admire […]

How to follow your bliss

Read more

Follow your bliss. Could it really be that simple? Isn’t that self-centered and selfish? When we focus on doing what makes us happy, what about our loved ones? How do they fit into our bliss? Our kids? Our partners? Our parents? And how do we know whether we are following our bliss or just trying […]
