What Are You Drinking? online April 27, 2020

Nobody asked me, so I’m asking you: What Are You Drinking?

Join me online Monday April 27 at 10:30-11:30 AM PT for an honest conversation about drinking.

Many of us drink alcohol, and have done so for much of our lives. Drinking becomes normal, and yet, many of us find ourselves wanting to drink less—and not knowing quite how to change our patterns. Historically, our collective wisdom has treated alcohol as an untouchable—until it becomes a catastrophe. This either/or paradigm did not serve me, and likely does not serve you as a moderate, social, normal drinker.

If you’ve gotten the subtle message that you may want to change your relationship with alcohol, the good news is that change can be much easier than you think. The view from inside your current normal looks real, because it is—and what seems real and normal can also change quickly, and dramatically.

In this online version of one of my favorite workshops, we’ll explore the new context of wellness and neuroscience that is revolutionizing how many of us feel about drinking. Join us to explore this shift and learn what others have done to create a conscious relationship with—or without—alcohol.

Monday April 27 at 10:30-11:30 AM PT online FREE in partnership with Holistic Healer Collective and WellSet.

That Awkward Moment Jan 29, 2020 at The Battery


Life is full of awkward moments. Especially when it comes to interacting with new people…and super-especially for people we might be attracted to. (Uh…high-school anyone?) Our brain freezes, we turn away, or we distract and dull ourselves with things like small talk, gadgets, drugs, and alcohol.

And yet, when we think back, it’s often those awkward moments that matter most. If someone were to ask you: how did you meet your partner? your lover? your best friend? — quite likely it began with an awkward moment. As with so many other things in life, we get good at what we do. Instead of turning away, we can consciously turn towards awkward moments so as to experience the intensity of connection that lies on the other side. Instead of fighting or fleeing that awkward moment, we can learn to stay and play. 

Join meditation teacher and improv actor James Brown and freedom coach and adventure athlete Bowen Dwelle for this dynamic social event where we’ll share some simple and effective ways to turn those awkward moments into some of the best moments of your life. As we dive in and practice together we’ll all have the opportunity to create some deeper, more real, more memorable—and usually, more hilarious—connections, learning some very powerful skills while we have a great time together. 

And because we want to make friends with awkwardness as consciously as possible, we strongly suggest enjoying the evening in an unaltered state. We’ll be serving a special alcohol-free cocktail along with Surreal Brewing’s outstanding non-alcoholic craft beer. Of course, you’re free to choose your own adventure. 

That Awkward Moment — Wednesday, January 29, 6-8pm at the Battery. Battery Members can register here. If you’d like to join and you’re not a Battery Member, contact me and I’ll put you on the list!
