My Favorite Retreat Dance Music by Jen Louden


I’ve just led one of my annual Taos writing retreats. I’m flush with gratitude for the courage of women who create and for the sanctity of retreat space that fosters such alchemy. And I’m grateful for Marianne Elliott for being with me in this adventure!


One of the many alchemical elements of Taos is morning dance. It started 8 (or maybe 10?) years ago when Lila Danielle was a participant and a...

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

What a well-structured fascinating story. Sklott took a mass of research started at a very young age and shaped a compelling socially very important page turner - what a feat. A book to study for structure as well as the social questions she raises.

Jack! Why did it take me so many years to read this? Who knows. But reading it on a recent meditation retreat (just a tiny bit here and there) really helped me with my fear of the path and embrace the round, the continuum, the foreverness of it all. ...more

I just love Danny Gregory and this book is one every creative would love. It normalizes that voice in our heads that say we suck and makes you feel less insane. Keep in on your desk!

“Carve out the time. Notice I do not say find the time. That is an absurd and dangerous phrase. Time is never lying around waiting for us to find her. She is elusive. She wants you to sculpt her like clay, to mold her into exactly the form you desire your days to take. If you refuse to do that, if you spend your mornings worrying and your afternoons catering to others, always hoping there will be a few minutes left for you, time will play you like a sucker, making you run harder and faster with each passing week. Time wants you to realize that she is the most precious and irreducible fact in your live. Make her into what you will”
Jennifer Louden

“East of Ordinary There exists the landscape where you take yourself by the hand. Where you walk forward trembling with tears running down your face, West of Doubt where you fear your greatness and embrace it anyway. We join hands and listen for the whispers of how we each make a difference. North of Hello we gather the courage for the doing. South of Regret we loosen our jaws, lean our shoulders away from our ears, let our eyes turn upwards. It need not be hard, we have each other.”
Jennifer Louden, The Life Organizer: A Woman's Guide to a Mindful Year

“Write down everything that you accomplished today. Instead of a “to do” list, this is a “done” list. Include everything!”
Jennifer Louden, The Woman's Comfort Book: A Self-Nurturing Guide for Restoring Balance in Your Life

“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
E.B. White

“Sometimes it's a form of love just to talk to somebody that you have nothing in common with and still be fascinated by their presence.”
David Byrne

“Be silent and listen: have you recognized your madness and do you admit it? Have you noticed that all your foundations are completely mired in madness? Do you not want to recognize your madness and welcome it in a friendly manner? You wanted to accept everything. So accept madness too. Let the light of your madness shine, and it will suddenly dawn on you. Madness is not to be despised and not to be feared, but instead you should give it life...If you want to find paths, you should also not spurn madness, since it makes up such a great part of your nature...Be glad that you can recognize it, for you will thus avoid becoming its victim. Madness is a special form of the spirit and clings to all teachings and philosophies, but even more to daily life, since life itself is full of craziness and at bottom utterly illogical. Man strives toward reason only so that he can make rules for himself. Life itself has no rules. That is its mystery and its unknown law. What you call knowledge is an attempt to impose something comprehensible on life.”
C.G. Jung, The Red Book: A Reader's Edition

“We are constantly trying to hold it all together. If you really want to see why you do things, then don't do them and see what happens.”
Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
