I would just - really like to live or stay here a while...!
Lenny Kravitz sure has some good taste! Since watching (and equally salivating) over this home - for clarity i mean the farm itself dah-ling, i can’t stop thinking about it and referring people to it. I’m even referencing this eye bath of deluxe refreshment in my latest podcast episode. So dedicating a whole post to it right here on the blog. And we can all enjoy. In whatever way we like.
What do you think - should we take a trip?!
FYI watching this Architectural Digest series is one of my fave Sunday morning activities! The nosey fascination! 💚

If you’ve ever been to one of my public events, yoga + movement community classes, yoga, movement + meditation workshops, retreats, or just listened to playlists or radio shows from me on the regular, you’ll know i’m a fan of Beverly Glenn-Copeland and he features heavily on my musical rotation.
I can’t believe that i’m going to see him this week in London! So in eager and almost all-consuming excitement and anticipation for this show, i thought i’d gather together some videos and listening opportunities for us to enjoy. Expect glorious music, words of wisdom on: creativity, and hopefully, feelings of freedom.
This is a love note taken from a recent Digest for anyone feeling discouraged 💌
Expect tools, resources and encouragement!
Whew! What a journey we've had. Sweet tender memories 💜
And i think younger Dionne would be amazed to still be out here 10 years later. And i won't sugar coat this neatly into a "happily ever after" line, because, there are still hard things in life. But i'm very glad of the experiences gained that teach me, i can get through them.
It's that time of year again! Here's some of my picks - let me know yours in the comments! Enjoy! dionne x
Most people know one of the longest and my most favourite rituals is Julia Cameron’s Morning Pages. I recommend them to all my clients. If you’re not already familiar with The Artists’ Way, i’d really recommend investing some time to sniff out a copy. It’s been something that has been a regular part of my life since 2004.

Long and short reads, film, art and magic. Hope they inspire and delight you!
“Is it possible for us to view ourselves void of these social constructs, that create these boundaries between us and within us? Is there a way for us to dissolve this construct of gender, class, race, sexuality, country of origin, whatever?
…people are the ones that created these boundaries. The sea has no agenda. Rich or poor, it will swallow you. So in a sense, when you think about it, the ocean is the one true democratic space that exists.”
Pleasure activism enables me to practice vulnerability, opens me up to experiencing love, joy, healing, community, a bigger meaning and purpose, and, feeling better. Holding space for processing, expression the journey, the miracles in the every day, and being present.
To me, this is freedom.

Frank not only worked with his limitations but he embraced them. He “poured, dripped and spilled paint covers the canvas….” and managed to create a piece even more interesting because it is authentic to who he is. He’s working with what he has.
So many of us get distracted by what we don’t have, feeling we need to have our shit together, all the goods the tools and the answers.
I know i can get caught up in that too, so no shade if you feel read, darlings. But i find it a helpful reminder always for myself and for every one of my clients to hold space for wherever you’re at. Cause we can work with that.
what if instead of needing to have the best equipment we can afford, or needing our whole 10 year plan together, we instead worked with what’s right here.
