Chakra: My new urban home
I'm thrilled to have joined the Chakra Wellness team of gifted practitioners. Located in the heart of The Grove in Midtown St. Louis, this urban sanctuary is a beautiful space for engaging with the topics I love the most. Come join us!
My next offering at Chakra — “Demystifying the Dying Process” — is set for April 1. We’ll cover the following, with ample time for Q&A, connections, and community building:
the compassionate role of the death doula: who we are, what we do, and how we help
the myriad of death doula specialties, when and where to turn for doula services, how to cater these needs to match your journey
how all of us can (and should!) create and hold space for dying and death

In the coming months, I’ll be presenting at Chakra about heartfelt passions of mine, including green(er) deathcare/burial choices and the myriad opportunities they create for healing, and legacy work, a proven modality for improving the end-of-life experience and our overall quality of life no matter where we find ourselves along our paths Home.
“But are you still at Joy’s?”
Yes, I am still practicing at Joy of Yoga, where I offer individual sessions and plan to roll out additional classes later this year. I love the Joy community and our warm, welcoming space; I am so grateful to call it home — my county home!
I recently revised my booking process (again). The easiest and best way to get on my calendar will always be to visit the Appointments page on my website, where you can find links to request time.
Meet Sarah Seger at Chakra, too!
When I set out several years ago to do this work, I did not anticipate how much and how often I would fall in love with my clients and their families. They have fed my soul just as much (if not more — probably more) than I have fed theirs.
I first met my amazing client Sarah Seger when she attended one of my classes at Joy of Yoga. Months later, I served as a death doula for her as she walked her beloved father Home. Now months after that, I count her as a dear friend, one I’d love for you to meet!
Check out Sarah Seger Mindful Living. She is a *really effective* Mindfulness Coach (I can testify to this!), Reiki practitioner, and Meditation Guide. She offers one-on-one services at Chakra as well. And on March 19 she’s delivering a workshop that I highly recommend: “Enneagram Essentials.”
From Enneagram newbies to those well versed in the typology, with this class Sarah will meet you where you are and enrich your understandings. Learn more and register via Chakra’s website.
“DO NOT REST IN PEACE!”
You can — and should! — ask your passed loved ones to live on in your lives. They want to be of service to you, to your highest and greatest good. So, call them in to do just that. And then, be open to and grateful for what you are shown.
Here’s how I talk to my passed loves:
Do NOT rest in peace. Noooooo! Please do not do that — at least, not all the time. Rest when you need to. Otherwise, can you please help me?
Please come visit me in my dreams and in my waking days, with lots of signs and messages so I know you are *right here.* Make them really obvious and irrefutable — indisputably from YOU.
And while you’re at it, please help me be peaceful and quiet and open enough to receive your signs and follow your guidance. I know this is key: If I’m a mess, I can’t perceive you. Please help me not be a mess. Please help me be in a place of Love so I can feel your Love.
THANK YOU for helping me, for showing me you’re present and active in my life still. Even when I forget to say thank you, know I mean it.
Thank you. For all you were in this life and still are forever more. I love you.
So you can behold again
The beauty of stillness
And its infinite forms
What do you have in a word
But a blessing
Peace is your birthright
