Spirit Bodies

Spirit Bodies By Shelby Phillips Weinstein I was reliving an experience I had in my intuitive meditation class last week. We were asked to postulate sitting our bodies in a chair as if they were separate from us and stand with our hands on their shoulders. As I approached my body, I began to cry. At the end of the exercise, I received validation from my teacher that my tears were confirmation of my connection with spirit. Just as many of … [Read more...]

The Leaning Feminist

The Risk Of Blooming

The Risk Of Blooming By Marianne Simon Last week I had four beautiful actresses sitting in my living room, reading excerpts from a performance piece I am developing, ‘Skins I have Worn.’ Six months ago I could not have imagined that as a reality. Anais Nin once wrote, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” I love this quote, because it so perfectly expresses the … [Read more...]
