[Vision Quest] Schedule Your Clairvoyance

In the last post I started the story of the October Yogidetox Vision Quest weekend with Winston. When we emerge from a reset experience like the Yogidetox, we have a new momentum. We have clear vision. We know what habits we want to keep up. We know which habits we want to shape us. When we do this with other people we can support each other’s momentum. You know how good you can feel. You know what...

Cate’s Top Recent Books

I'm an avid reader/book listener. I'm sharing a few books that shifted my thinking this year. Our brains want to expand with the expanding universe. One of the biggest expansions came from the not just reading a few of the Rich Dad, Poor Dad books, but also playing Cashflow by Robert T. Kiyosaki. I love how by  Kiyosaki gamified his life's learning around financial freedom in a boardgame. 2017 was a big year for us. Winston...

[Vision Quest] April 2018 Save the Date

I had to write to tell you about the end of the October Yogidetox. So, Winston and I had a weekend open up in front of us. We’ve obviously been deep in Yogidetox-land. (Winston has been with me since well before the first Yogidetox in 2002). Indy was invited away for the weekend. Seizing a unique opportunity to leverage the clairvoyance that comes with detoxing we packed the camper with the essentials for Winston’s vision quest and headed...

[Rapid City] Part 3. In the Classroom.

Before we get into the classroom pics, did I mention our food was OFF THE HOOK? To say we were nourished by Batool Merali, of Nourish Myself, would be a gross understatement. Deep pranam. Back to the classroom. Yogahealer Retreats aren’t known for just eating, visiting Dinosaur parks, and socializing. We do some seriously deep transformational work. See evidence below. In all seriousness, and I was very very serious, moderating the Collaborative Leadership Experiment on the final day....

[Rapid City] What went down. Part 2.

I heard you wanted more photos… with clever explanations from me. Ask and you receive. And… if you want to check out the details for Mexico - you should. When we booked the retreat in Rapid, we had no idea what to expect.  Soon after landing, we explored. “Rachel Peters! Is that what I think it is? WTF,” I exclaim.   Annie Barrett doing the Dino Dance.     After our unplanned post-lunch hike up Dinosaur mountain, Amanda Hemmingsen, (LAC...

[Rapid City] What Went Down

Oh my, where to begin. Our course member retreat in Rapid City went down last week. About 30 course members and mentors gathered at Batool Merali’s green hotel  - The Rushmore - in downtown Rapid City. She even plastered my face to the billboard, right between rotating announcements of martini right and the presidential rock carving. Check out the blank chart and the phallic drawing of spiral evolution behind me. Bam. And we are off and...

The Metabolic Efficiency of Radiant Longevity

Does agni ruling your roots? Answer the 5 questions below. Awhile back before I got distracted with juicing thistle and rose hips, breaking glass ceilings, with poop holes and p!e holes I was writing to you about physiological efficiencies.  Let’s pick up on that conversation.  The theme? Invest your attention in the increasing efficiencies of your body.  The more I self-study (svadyaya) my body the more attuned I become to the efficiencies. Efficiency of action, efficiencies of thought, efficiencies of digestion,...

Breaking Your Glass Ceilings

I’m writing from the plane heading to Rapid City. Batool Merali, co-author of The Divinity Within happens to have a phat pad of a hotel in downtown Rapid City. And as a longtime Yogahealer course member + later mentor (see Yogidetox, Living Ayurveda Course, Yoga Health Coaching, Body Thrive), she has been offering her phat pad as the base for the next Yogahealer retreat. Which starts tomorrow. Realizing the generous nature of this offer, I finally took...

Always Be eXperimenting. (ABX)

The body experiments. The body loves experiments. The body evolves via experimentation, feedback, learning, integration, experimentation feedback, learning, integration… ad infinitum. ABX - Always be Experimenting - is a principal of nature, a basic premise of Ayurvedic philosophy (see prajna paradha - or failure to ABX - as a root cause of disease). Lately, Silicon Valley's biz gurus and hackers illuminate the power of ABX via lean start up methodology, productivity hacking and bio hacking. (See Think big, test...
