Endings into Beginnings

By Deborah Penner / March 4, 2019

We’re in the Balsamic phase of the moon (or waning crescent). For the 18 years that I’ve been aware of moon cycles, it has been about releasing into the space between. That sliver of space between the end and the beginning … the space between exhale and inhale. My favorite of all the phases, where…

Significantly Satisfying Tiny Movement

By Deborah Penner / August 24, 2018

Stay curious. Notice the connections. Allow it all ~ Be satisfied with what is, with an ongoing curiosity about what else could be. What happens when I am willing to be curious about what my body can actually do rather than fold into the story of what it can no longer do because of pain, balance…

Cancer Moon, Eighth House Transit

By Deborah Penner / August 9, 2018

Haha!! First thought after reading just this first sentence of today’s  Moonnote by Heidi Rose Robbins? “Believe it or not, the Moon stays in CANCER void of course again until 9:18pm pacific time when it moves into Leo.” Well fuck me now! Actually that would not be such a bad idea if there was somebody…

I Can't Stay Angry (and I Wish I Could)

By Deborah Penner / February 11, 2018

I can’t stay mad at the One who a month ago told me he needed space after talking pretty much every day – every other day. No more than two days went by without us connecting for tiny moments. We have been on again off again for 13 years. Maybe 13 is the number of…

A Remembrance of Why ~ Why Hospice?

By Deborah Penner / February 3, 2018

I am getting ready to return to hospice in a volunteer capacity and I am excited! The volunteer training starts in less than two weeks. One of the things asked of me in prep for the training is to find a photo that represents what hospice means to me … I sat with it over…

Touch Starved?

By Deborah Penner / June 11, 2017

  Heads up … this is not my usual peaceful and calm offering. And yet, it is what showed up this morning – all I can think of is that perhaps there is a nugget that will offer relief to someone here? I never know … I simply offer. I just had a big giant…

One More Time – How Can This Be Easy?

By Deborah Penner / May 28, 2017

Continuing in the how can this be easy vein, I had a delightful experience of ease this week with  one of my clients.  She has genuinely been too busy to focus on completing her website and while the stop-start timing has felt disjointed for me and it is not something I care to repeat, (I…

How Could I Create Ease Here?

By Deborah Penner / May 21, 2017

This weekend, I get to participate in a sacred Sufi movement workshop. I almost talked myself out of it. I told myself that I didn’t really want to go, didn’t really want to be around all of those people, that I am in an inward, introverted space right now . What if my body cannot…

Self Judgment is Physically Painful

By Deborah Penner / April 23, 2017

Self judgment is physically painful. I discovered that in an unavoidable way one night  a few weeks back as I almost unconsciously (until it became conscious) slammed myself over and over again with one judgment after another. It felt so normal, this judgment. Normal. Routine. For a while, the judgement came in the voice of…
