Hi, beautiful one. I’m Rose, a mama + a maker.
I welcome you to my home, to my virtual palace, to this place I love dearly. I invite you to:
live as presently as possible
trust your unique creativity
recognize your life has cycles
love yourself for who you are now, not what you will become
know there’s nothing wrong with you
Who I am:
I’m a teacher, but I’m not trying to make you into a better person.
I think who you are is pretty dang incredible.
I’m an artist, but I don’t think everyone needs to feel creative or artful to have meaning.
I think your very being here is creative enough.
I’m a woman on the path of living every day to the fullest, just like you.
How I got here:
A few years ago, I began to learn about the cycles of creativity, and what exactly it means to have creativity, to live in a creative way, and to — well, create.
At the time I was newly married, and also at the end of a very fruitful career path, though it wasn’t my soul’s path.
A shift was occurring inside of me, and it felt uncertain and exciting all at once.
I was scared and dealing with anxiety – waking multiple times throughout the night with worry and fear.
After a series of warning signs, like panic attacks and migraines, I decided to make a change.
I’ll tell you, dear sister, that the shift of owning my creativity wasn’t radical.
And it didn’t happen in one day.
It slowly happened over time, with the tools that I teach you through my blogs, my offerings, and my conversations with you — I made it to where I am now.
Where I am today:
I became a mother to an incredible human in 2016. My focus has changed again from this business as my full time work, to being present in these early years for my son and my new life chapter.
The intense change that parenthood ushered in taught me how to see life as cyclical –
meaning there are gifts and shadows that will pass of this stage in my life.
From there my latest offering Soul Cycle Sessions, was born.
Soul Cycle Sessions is a place where you come to illuminate your inner peace through learning about cyclical living.
I do these sessions on a limited basis, so please contact me if you are interested.
How to keep in touch:
Through this blog, where I have been writing regular content on for about 5 years. Contact me here if you have questions or thoughts.
Through one-on-one mentorship with me, which gives you personalized guidance on living in rhythm with your life.
I’m grateful you’ve found yourself here. If nothing else, I hope you leave this site feeling this, in every cell of your being:
You belong. There’s nothing wrong with you. You’re perfectly imperfect.
