QT imaging is the latest development in breast imaging technology. This new modality is based on low frequency transmitted ultrasound tomography (volography) and may become an effective way of screening dense breast tissue (trials are in progress). Dr. Klock's research is supported by the Dr. Susan Love Foundation and the National Institutes of Health ❤️

🚨 For all those who could not attend the Symposium on the Human Breast, you're in luck!! Dr. John Klock's presentation on QT Imaging and QT Technology has been posted to our YouTube channel. Check it out here: https://bit.ly/3LkwVOc

May we all be courageous enough to live our truth. Even when - and dare I say especially when - it looks like folly, bewilderment, madness, and dream. Because the recipe to a life well lived is complex. I don't know about you, but I don't intend to leave a single ingredient out. I am here for the FULL human experience. With an exponent 😉

The Invitation.

01/10/2023

Am I spending time in the best way possible given my diagnosis?

I used to ask this question a lot, thinking that depending on how many years were ahead, I would make different life decisions. Career. Relationships. Where to live. Travel. The proverbial bucket list stuff. And so I studied the biomedical literature, trying to understand my prognosis, becoming a breast cancer researcher along the way*.

In my rumination over how to move forward in the face of my disease, what I came to understand is that the answer to this question actually has very little to do with how much time is left.

Firstly, because when it comes to cancer, there is no way to know unequivocally what that number is.

Secondly, if a number holds the power to determine our life choices, then maybe, just maybe, it’s not really the cancer that keeps us from all those things we would otherwise be doing 😉

So when someone with cancer recently asked a version of this question, I offered this advice:

Do the things that make your life worth living. If that includes continuing to pursue your professional goals that's great. If it includes quitting your job to spend more time traveling or with friends and family that's great, too. Ask yourself what feels good. Then regularly check in with yourself on that question. If it becomes too much or too little you can always take a break or change your mind. Because why go through treatment if not to have a chance to create and enjoy the things that make life worth living?

For the rest of us, I would suggest that, cancer or no cancer, we take a moment to ask ourselves the same question - what is MY why for being here, in this human experience, if not for the same purpose?

For me, it's clear: To LIFE and to LIVING, L'CHAIM xo ✨💃

Soul Sabbatical Sedona Retreat: February 15 - 20, 2023

Spots are limited but the love isn't xo

Soul Sabbatical Sedona 2023

Seven years ago I was in remission from stage 3 breast cancer. Newly divorced, and facing many other changes in life, I was unhappy. So unhappy that I was finally willing to dedicate some part of myself to healing. To feeling better in my body. And in mind and spirit. To being able to rest and breathe, if only for a moment.

But I was also afraid. In quiet moments of honesty, I felt empty of purpose, disconnected from passion. I had no clue how to pick up the pieces of a life that had been shattered. I didn't know where the hell I was, much less which way to turn, or in which direction to continue to trudge.

But that quiet part of me – the one that wanted to heal – she reminded me that I was worth it. Worth admitting the truth of the situation. Worth taking some time to start figuring this s**t out. Worth putting myself in a space where I could access my courage. Worth asking for help. Because as a wise friend frequently reminds me, anything worth doing is worth doing with support. And so I went on retreat. In the beautiful and healing cradle of wonder, rejuvenation, and rebirth that is otherwise called Sedona.

This is where I again reconnected with my soul. In the company and camaraderie of others on a similar quest. Where I started to learn how to ebb and flow in alignment with my soul’s desires. How to lean into and leverage my Akashic Record, including and especially when I am afraid. It never fails to guide me to that place where I am held, loved, supported – and resourced when ready for co-creation. Because an Akashic Record is a metaphysical birth story – and in this human experience we call life – a blueprint for Divine guidance that points us toward center, toward soul, toward our spiritual home.

If you’d like to learn what is in your Akashic Record, and how to use it for deeper alignment, you are lovingly invited to join us as we gather in sacred community for retreat, February 15-20, 2023, Sedona.

I have loved this mountain from the first moment I met her.

Pachamama, “Earth Mother”, a Goddess of the indigenous people of the Andes, who presides over planting and harvesting, embodies the mountains, and causes earthquakes*.

Tahoma. I am blessed beyond measure to dwell and create in the glow of your loving presence ❤️

To plant and to harvest.

And to make a few earthquakes of my own 😉

Old growth forests, with their majestic cathedrals of trees, are every bit as sacred as our constructed places of spiritual worship. Here, we experience 𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘮𝘢 𝘮𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘪 – Latin for “soul of the world” – the vital life force energy that connects all living things.

As we take in the sights, sounds, tastes, textures, and aromas of the forest, the synergy of this multi-sensory stimulation can transport us deeply into reverence. We connect with Spirit, and all that is, through Divine Oneness.

Perhaps one of the most beautiful, astonishing, and awe-inspiring things about trees is the way by which they too sense and respond with 𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘮𝘢 𝘮𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘪. In a remarkable field experiment, sap flow was recorded by acoustic researcher Dr. Bernie Krause, who found that the sound that this process makes is rhythmic, creating melody as air intake goes up and down. Even more fascinating, when a person sits against a tree and meditates, the melody the tree makes changes to match the person’s breathing pattern.

Now, consider this: the melody is produced in the part of the trunk that regulates sap flow, called the xylem and the phloem, which together comprise the tree’s circulatory system. This means that the sound that is acoustically recordable is the functional equivalent of a heartbeat.

Which trees synchronize with ours when they feel our presence ❤️

What a wondrous way of sensing and responding to 𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘮𝘢 𝘮𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘪. The Spirit of the forest, in its own incredible, glorious way, communicates with us through the universal language of love.

Be strong. You're a warrior.
You've got this, FIGHT and you will WIN!

I didn't like this metaphor very much the first time I had breast cancer, and now, the second time, even less.

You see, this time it's metastatic. Stage 4. Incurable. Terminal.

This is where the fight metaphor breaks down completely for me.

I mean y'all, c'mon.

HOW TF DO YOU WIN A FIGHT LIKE THIS?

The answer might surprise you. It's not by fighting, but by HEALING....

As I viewed photos from my last camping trip, I noticed a theme: I will willingly and enthusiastically pitch a tent in a clearing of dirt in order to drink campfire coffee, commune with trees, and enjoy French pastries for most of my meals. 

And to delight in the beauty of nature, including the walking path to the lake where there are gorgeous wildflowers and Lopez island ice creams at the summer snack stand.

But the highlight, the absolute gem of this trip, other than those magnificent Douglas Firs, of course - was a brioche breakfast bun from #brownbearbaking. It is so damn good that I did not hesitate to miss my ferry reservation in order to wait to have one straight from the oven.

Recovery and rebuilding after a breast cancer diagnosis can feel like a daunting process. Once treatment is complete, a part of you may be thinking "I should be celebrating. I'm finally NED/stable and should be getting back to living my life". But how do you do this when your old one doesn't quite fit anymore, and yet you've no idea what you'd rather it be?

I know this realm, where the fog obscures both the forest and the trees. Where anxiety, confusion, worry about recurrence, and so many other feelings remain long past diagnosis and treatment.

And what I have learned, through my own cancer experience and through coaching others, is that a powerful antidote is learning how to maneuver so you can begin creating a life that you love living, one that feels even better than before diagnosis.

And it’s totally okay if you’ve no idea where to start. Don’t let that hold you back. That part is actually easy. Do things that feel good and fewer things that don’t. This one simple principle is what led me to all kinds of unexpected and ridiculously marvelous things after my first diagnosis, like a TEDx talk, a breast cancer research patent, and invitations to participate in think tanks and speak at international conferences (with zero background in cancer research - see my website for that story).

But back to the most important point: YOU.

If you permitted yourself to dial up the feel good, if you had skills to navigate feelings, and ways to tap into your deepest desires, I wonder what YOU would create? What dreams might come forward? What experiences you would choose to make your life richer and more meaningful? What additional memories would you like to make? And what synchronicities might appear to support your new endeavors?

If you’d like support and guidance on what that could look like for you, then schedule a free consult call (see link in bio).

Nothing thrills me more than empowering other women to stand in their agency and live TF out of their “second chances”. If this also thrills you, then get on my calendar ASAP – because in case you aren’t sure, you totally deserve this. And I’d love nothing more than to help you learn how.

As a breast cancer survivor, breast cancer researcher, and women's health advocate, I have explored, experienced, and experimented with this disease from many angles. And what each one has show me is this: the absolute best person for taking charge of your healing is YOU. Your medical team will be focused on treating your cancer, but your healing will come from you.

Healing begins when you start digging beneath the surface, when you start going within. When you can stand in clarity of mind and self. When you can feel your emotions without judgment or censure. When you hold autonomy, bodily and otherwise. When you can maneuver within your reality instead of fight it. When you feel love and connection, including a higher power. And when you feel at peace with the existential stuff like your life's meaning and purpose.

No matter where you are relative to a breast cancer diagnosis, healing is possible. And there are many, many tools, techniques, and exercises to help empower you to do just that.
