Stand Up and Speak Out

While writing the description for our 5th Chakra Retreat: Speak Your #SoulTruth a week ago, we remembered a conversation we had with our friend Siva at a VIP cocktail in NYC last February. He shared with us: Human beings are the only known species amongst all other creatures, who would spend the first two years of our lives telling our offspring to “Stand up” and “Speak out” – and then spend the rest of the time telling our kids to “Sit down” and “Shut up”. We were having a casual conversation; but what he said hit me (Tay) like a ton of … Read More

What it takes to speak at TED events – twice

Tay and Val at TEDxWWU

But no, we did not get to speak at TEDx because we were ‘experienced’ enough. We get to do the TEDx talks, and the many city commissioned talks after that because we finally decided to speak our #soultruth…

A Circle of Women

Something magical happened on this past Sunday as ten soulful and ambitious women entrepreneurs gathered for our “Heal Your Heart #rememberlove” urban retreat; and our hearts are bursting to share it with you!

How do you stay together?” And before we could answer, the next set of questions will come: “Do you fight at all? Who wins when you do?” Ooh we love a good question! So I (usually Val) answer with the six most powerful words in English: Let me tell you a story… There was a couple who have been married for 50 … Read More

What Tay’s #HangerMoment taught us about love

Maybe because we’re putting out a retreat on “LOVE”, we’ve been getting this question a lot lately: “How long have you two been together?” And no matter how many times we get asked this question, we’ll start looking into the sky and counting the numbers in our heads. I (Tay) never get it right. Each time I count, I seem to arrive at a different answer – 6, 5, 7… maybe 8.5? The truth is, it doesn’t matter to me how long we’ve been “together”. What matters more, is how our journey together has unfolded – not what we’ve done … Read More
