Hi. I'm Mollie. I've been on an unexpected and painful journey of discovery in the past year, and had to press "pause" on my business (in terms of accepting new clients or promoting myself in any way) as I got clearer about what it is I am being asked to learn, teach, participate in, and create in this wild and sacred life.
I originally made this website when I was transitioning from having a full-time practice offering massage therapy, Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle counselling and herbal medicine in Oakland, California (and was pretty burned out, truth be told), to being something like a health coach with an online business. But it turned out that wasn't really what I wanted either! Having an online business felt lonely and weird, and I became increasingly disillusioned with the "Wellness Industry" and online coaching. My partner Cait and I moved to my Midwestern home town at the end of May 2017, and I am letting the land, plants, and people here transform me, as I work on my creative change-making projects, including a book I am slowly writing on Ayurveda in the West, and work part time at a coffee shop to help pay the rent.
It sure is not sexy, but I am grateful anyway for these weird twists and turns of life which are polishing me like a river stone. Every year I feel more humble.
