Lessons from Chattanooga

Lessons from Chattanooga

It's hard to believe, but I will be departing Chattanooga in a couple of days! I let Maine on Jan 24, so it's been a month of digital nomad life. I stopped by my folks' house for a week, then I visited a friend in Christiansburg, VA, and spent the last 3 weeks in Chattanooga. I'm about 18 hours (by car) south of my home in Maine. And even though, I was on a sun-seeking mission, I managed to find more snow along my route! Here's what I've learned along the way: 1 - Home is where the heart is....

Moments of despair

Moments of despair

You know those moments, the ones where you find yourself squatting in the shower sobbing your face off...yeah, those moments of despair. I know those moments feel hard, sometimes unbearable. They are all-consuming, raw moments of real emotion. And I want to congratulate you for feeling them. Yes, congratulate. You know why? Because you are FEELING the emotions. And that is hard, brave work. It's in these moments of despair, that we have the opportunity to connect to our true essence. Those...

Moss

Moss

Have you ever thought about moss? Yeah, me neither, until I watched the movie "Elsewhere" on Amazon Prime (good movie, check it out if you haven't seen it). One of the main characters is a writer and is writing her second book about moss. In a scene in a diner, she explains her fascination with moss. It goes a little like this: Moss has been around longer than any other land plant and has figured out how to be here on this earth. Moss has learned how to live within its means. It lives in tiny...

Poignant moments

Poignant moments

I love words (and even spellcheck even more). The word poignant (thank you spellcheck) means evoking a keen sense of sadness or regret. I was surprised by this definition and then found it also means deeply affecting and touching. The latter is how I identify with the word. As I navigate this new phase of my journey, I am naturally drawn to deep introspection. I find myself connecting dots I hadn't seen before, allowing me to gain new insight into my life's experiences. As I was walking...

Our deepest desires

Our deepest desires

My first job out of college was working at the airport on Nantucket as an Operations Specialist. I worked from 2pm-10pm and it was glorious. I slept in, worked out on the beach, worked hard, and played hard. I swore I was never going to work a 9-5...that sounded like death by office job. But before I knew it, I had moved across the country to Portland, Oregon, and was working a 9-5. Well, to be precise, it was an 8:30-5 with an hour lunch, so it was a 37.5-hour gig. That somehow sounded so...

My Radical Life

My Radical Life

So as we step into this journey together, I'd like to share my version of A Radical Life. Please remember that this is unique to me; this is not a prescription for your radical life (although if it sounds good to you, then feel free to use it as inspiration). When I was a kid, I swore I was going to get married and live in my parents' basement. I was never leaving. Somewhere along the way, I realized there is a world outside of my parents' home and I began to love the idea of exploring it....

The start of a new chapter

The start of a new chapter

As I close Mind Body Grief, it's only natural that I step into what's next. The next evolution of the journey. I'd like to introduce you to "A Radical Life with Emily." rad·i·cal /ˈradək(ə)l/ - adjective: radical - (especially of change or action) relating to or affecting the fundamental nature of something; far-reaching or thorough. The most radical thing we can do in our life is to live a life we love. A life that is congruent for ourselves. A life that lights us up and fulfills our purpose....

The close of a chapter

The close of a chapter

For the last four years, it has been a pleasure and an honor to serve you under the Mind Body Grief banner. In these four years, I saw clients as a massage therapist, craniosacral therapist, and grief coach. I held space for your losses, for your grief, and your tender hearts and bodies. I grieved my own losses alongside you. I witnessed miracles and was humbled regularly. This work was powerful and inspirational. And now it's time to make a shift in how I show up in my business. In the...
