Saturday was incredible. I had the honor and privilege of serving as mentor for a day to teen girls at the Spirit of Leadership Conference sponsored by the Jenna Druck Foundation.

More than 300 girls from throughout San Diego County were nominated to participate based on the leadership skills they have demonstrated at school, among their friends, and in the community.

I may have served as their mentor for the day but I certainly learned a great deal from them as well.

The overriding topic of the conference was honor your emotions and speak your truth. This can sometimes be difficult for girls, and even women to do, but so important in creating a successful and fulfilling life.

And these can be very powerful reminders for brides as well!

Weddings can bring up some pretty intense emotions and unfamiliar agendas coming from family and friends. It’s a great opportunity to honor how you’re feeling. Decide what is most important to you. And speak your truth to others with integrity and clarity.  No woman wants to be a bridezilla (see Guide to Becoming A Goddess Bride)

Focusing your own strong emotions – whether it’s anger, anxiety or irritation – toward a positive outcome rather than being owned by them – can be such an empowering experience.

Thank you to the Jenna Druck foundation and speaker and author Rachel Simmons for reminding us of the Goddess within all of us.

Feeling jittery about your upcoming wedding day?  As a Goddess Bride you have all of your resources in place and the planning is coming along nicely.


Remember to focus on your own health and well-being as well. It’s important to stay relaxed and connected again to your wellbeing, to take you through to one of the most important days of your life!


Acupuncture for brides.

Kathleen Noonan, L.Ac.,  offers some great acupuncture sessions for brides to be!

I thought this was a cool idea and wanted to check it out for myself. This was the first time I’ve experienced acupuncture and didn’t know what to expect.


After the initial consultation, I lay down on a massage-type table in comfortable clothing (like what you would wear to a yoga class). Kathleen proceeded to take little needles (new, in their own prewrapped packaging) and pop them into my skin at various points throughout my body: head, belly, feet, hands. I mostly felt almost nothing or maybe a tiny prick that immediately went away. acupuncturerevShe put them all along my ear as well, describing the ear as a little upsidedown fetus that acts as a map of the body.


I then lay on the table for about 20 minutes, after which she removed the needles. I felt calm and peaceful and had the feeling that ‘everything is connected.’

Kathleen has an awesome bedside manner and her easygoing nature made the whole experience a breeze.
