Team Love: Join Meggan Watterson & Me to Support Love146 in Their Work to End Child Trafficking and Exploitation.

team-love-join-email

We’d been asked an incredibly powerful question and were still stunned by the magnitude of it, and how moved we were as a result.

We sat on the subway making our way back to Manhattan with mascara running down our faces, far beyond the point of trying not to cry.

Meggan Watterson, author of Reveal: A Sacred Manual for Getting Spiritually Naked, and I have been dear friends virtually since the moment we met. And we discovered in that moment, as the trains on the downtown track whirred by, that our hearts were breaking about the very same thing. While the burden of it felt too heavy for either of us to carry on our own, we knew that by holding it together we might actually be able to move forward instead of collapsing.

Thus, Team Love was born. We made a video about it so you can join in on answering the very same question that brought us to our knees

There are atrocities going on around the world so horrendous that sometimes we do whatever we can to stop thinking about them. But that doesn’t help solve the problem.

Holding the weight of the world’s problems together lets us take action rather than stay paralyzed. {Tweet}twitter-logo

Watch the video below to find out what Team Love is, what we’re doing about the thing that breaks our hearts most in this world, and how you can be part of the solution with us.

(Alert: you may want to have a hankie handy while watching. We both cry in the video, and if your vegus nerve is as sensitive as mine, you’ll probably cry too.)

Provide support for Love146’s incredible work at love146.org. I recommend giving monthly. Give $5 a month. You won’t miss it, and it’s a way to simply and sustainably be part of the solution.

Join our Team Love Facebook group and team up with your sisters and brothers so we can carry the load of our heartbreak together.

 

OVER TO YOU:

I shall ask you the same question Glennon Doyle Melton asked us: What breaks your heart? Your answer points you directly to who you need to serve. Please share in the comments below. I would love to hear from you!

Please forward this to a friend who you’d love to have join you in Team Love to be part of the solution together.

No matter who they are, they will be touched.

I find myself frequently wanting to send fan mail and gushing texts of love. I used to hold back because I thought that if someone had reached a certain level of success, wealth, fame, achievement, or — insert whatever word you’d like here for “bigness” — they were probably saturated with positive feedback. When Money: A…

The simple shift I made to attract my man.

They were so juicy and yummy together. Hanging out with them made me feel like a more loving person. Their love rubbed off on the people around them and made us all feel more loved and loveable. The wisdom says: If you want something, hang around with people who have it. (Tweet it.) So I…

Setting women and girls free.

I received a beautiful email in January from a woman named Erin Giles on a mission. She asked me to write an essay on freedom to contribute to a book she’s putting together to free women and girls. The book was inspired by a film called Nefarious: Merchant of Souls about the human sex trafficking…

Glimpse TV with Colleen Saidman Yee: From breath to death and all that’s in between.

Before I had ever really gotten to know Colleen Saidman Yee as the incredibly wise, generous, and profound yoga teacher that she is, I knew her as my godmother’s beautiful, funny neighbor. When I spent three weeks in Sag Harbor, NY last summer I fell in love with Colleen and all of her stunning facets:…

Prince Charming isn’t coming…is he?

I quote Barbara Stanny saying, “A man is not a financial plan,” in almost every one of my workshops. And yet the other day when I was having an incredible craniosacral healing session with Melanie Ericksen and she got all my chakras in order and buzzing, she asked me a question as she cradled my…

Feed your love every day (and other wise women relationship gems.)

One recent magical evening in New York I had the pleasure of circling up at Sarabeth’s with eight beautiful women. We were celebrating my friend Danielle’s birthday in pure goddess fashion. As we went around the table, each stating a desire for Danielle (kind of like a birthday wish but with a bit more turgor),…

Self-love vs. self-improvement: May the best man win.

I have a tremendous need to get results out of anything I do. I started a pranayama practice in October as part of my yoga teacher training and couldn’t seem to stick with it on a daily basis (which was a course requirement) because it didn’t feel like I was getting anywhere. Where exactly would…
