Mistaking Our Genetic Makeup For The Human Spirit

 “You all know this, but it’s worth stating the obvious,” declared Amy McGuire, a genomic bioethicist from Baylor College of Medicine at the start of this year’s TEDMED conference in San Francisco. “Genomic sequencing is not an infallible prophecy of our future.”

On the one hand, there’s listening to your body, your inner wisdom, your gut feelings, your intuition, or really whatever you want to call your divine instinct.

And then on the other, there’s resistance.

What’s the difference?

Truth Telling. A Practice Of Self Love...

truth telling

Today I’d like to talk about a topic that is rather, well, “Cringeworthy”; our need to tell “White Lies”.  I’m talking about exaggerations, half truths, excuses, Yes I’m going there, the whole gamut.

Rethinking The Busy-ness Of Our Lives


No matter where I am or who I'm with, conversation inevitably turns towards how busy we are. Let’s face it – we’re often on our phones answering texts, or we are thinking about what we need to do or who to call. We’re rarely in the present moment.

The Cure For All Anxiety


We live in a culture that says that the only way to get what you want is to DO DO DO and then DO some more. Push. Struggle. Make it happen. Put your nose to the grindstone. Work your ass off. Try. And never ever give up.

The Power Of Conscious Choice

loving compassion

Anxiety woke me abruptly at five o’clock this morning. The frantic voice in my head sounded my alarms, chanting, “You don’t have enough time to do everything!” My adrenals jumped into fight/flight mode, instantly waking me all the way up. But luckily, after 35 years as a body-centered therapist, I knew better than to stay focused on this all-too-familiar-chant. I quickly shifted into asking, “Where do I feel anxiety in my body?” It appeared as a tight knot in my belly. From years of experience, I sent five deep breaths directly into the center of the knot and watched it soften and dissolve into spacious peacefulness.

Ahlers wedding
This past, July 17th, was my 10 year wedding anniversary.

I cannot believe that Rob and I tied the knot a decade ago. We wed in beautiful Ojai, California, known as Southern California’s Valley of the Moon, in blistering heat surrounded by our very closest family and friends. It was one of the best days of my life and one of the best decisions I’ve ever made to marry this man of mine.

Over these past 10 years that have had great ups and downs, losses and disappointments, bliss and unbelievable joy, I’ve discovered a few things.

What Everyone Gets Wrong About The Clitoris

Pandora's Box

I am forever coming across articles that talk about women’s orgasms, or rather, a woman’s orgasm. As though there is only one.

And then I get confused. Because I wonder, “Are they talking about clitoral orgasms? G-Spot orgasms? Anal orgasms? Ear-gasms?”

I never know.

And the authors of said articles don’t seem to know either.

Presumably, they are talking about clitoral orgasms.

As these seem to be the most common female orgasm, and the one most likely to show up in a lab.

However, the clitoris is just the tip of the iceberg.

Normal Is Boring

Normal Is Boring

We all have ideas of what ‘normal’ looks like.
Jeans and a button up and tasteful jewelry.
Job in an office.
