Build Your Reservoir: Caring for Others Without Losing Self-Care


Do you find yourself giving so much to everyone else that there’s nothing left for yourself? This is an all-too common pitfall for women, especially mothers and those caring for aging parents – or sandwiched between both!

In this video, I guide you through the felt experience called Soft Animal of The Body.

This practice will teach you how to activate the para-sympathetic nervous system (a.k.a. our ‘rest and digest system’) and turn on the tap of Yin nectar, even in moments of stress and overwhelm.

Although this video was recorded in a past Facebook live, it’s still just a relevant today… enjoy!

A few highlights:

  • Minute 10:15 – Poem from Mary Oliver Wild Geese
  • Minute 12:57 – Soft Animal of the Body practice
  • Minute 35:40 – Evening practice of gratitude

If you’d like to go further and explore this evolutionary emergence and how it applies to your life and our collective future, I invite you to explore the book The Way of the Mysterial Woman: Upgrading How You Live, Love and Lead.
