Eating beauty

It is right in front of you

Next New Moon May 11th

Dear ,

Be open to new and different relationships but even more important, wake up to your own beauty, self-worth and power. Now is not the time to hide your light under a bushel. 

~ Cathy Pagano

Today, what clutter can you clear from your life that will make more space for you? Look for one place in your day where there is a snag or stagnation and make a change that will release stuckness and open up more beauty.

Beauty is everywhere, if you are willing to look. Color, texture, taste... even in the most mundane places you can open your senses and eat beauty with your eyes and see beauty with your mouth.

One of my favorite experiences of feasting on unexpected beauty was during a workshop with my dear friend, Day Schildkret. Day creates impermanent art altars using found objects. His creations are so finely wrought, so exquisitely detailed that I wept the first time I a saw a picture.

I was super skeptical at this particular workshop when Day asked us to go out and forage natural found objects for our own altars. Why? Because we were in Brooklyn. How were twelve people going find enough natural materials among the asphalt and concrete and trash to craft beauty?

Within two blocks everything changed. As I shifted my city perspective and got quiet, the exuberant loudness of nature sang at me. Here were tiny white flowers growing in the cracks of the sidewalk. There, sensual grasses. Trees offered me red berries; a corner of a tiny neighborhood park laughed in yellow sunflowers.

There was a bounty of beauty. I only had to slow down and look.

When the twelve of us finished our altars an hour or so later I could barely believe the diversity of materials and the uniqueness of each creation. But there it was laid out in front of me, a reminder that even in the most unlikely places beauty is waiting to nourish us.

Here is a great article about Day's process and pics of some Morning Altars; also scroll down to learn more about his work, his upcoming training and to see one of my favorite Morning Altar pics...

Join me live today, Tuesday May 4th at 11 am Los Angeles, 2 pm New York, 7 pm London in today’s live Episode 12 (take 2!) of the Warrior Goddess Revolution podcast on Facebook and Youtube. I'll do a 1/2 hour teaching and then open it up for questions. If you can't join live I'll post the recording soon at:

Here’s to finding beauty in surprising places.

With love,
