We are well into our second session with the kids at the middle school in Inglewood. The Farley Project started by journeying to this school over a year ago and it has been a blessing watching the organization and our program blossom over the past two years.

Wake Up!

This is going to be a bit of a different approach to my blog posts, as I'm a bit bothered by something and what better forum to express that than The Huffington Post!

Lately I have seen several people wearing a t-shirt that says, "You Can't Sit With Us."...

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Today was a good day. Despite the fact that I've had a wicked flu for a week. Today I watched as 20 seventh grade students looked at themselves in a bright yellow hand mirror and told themselves that they were worthy. Beautiful. Handsome. Smart. Strong. An amazing basketball player, dancer,...

I've spent the past week at Akasha Ellis's Kundalini Yoga retreat at Villa Sumaya on Lake Atitlan, Guatamala. If you haven't been and have a desire to travel, I strongly recommend putting this little haven on your list! It's only a 4.5 hour flight from LA and 2.5 hours from...

I recently went to a brilliant incredible unforgettable retreat in the mountains of Georgia. It was with a company called MBM (Meeting of the Big Minds). I can describe the weekend as camp meets business meets college meets TED talks. There were 15 of us, ages 25-60 from all across...

We've officially completed two school visits and I was literally running on a high for the month of June after spending time at Century Academy For Excellence Middle School with the amazing students.

Slow Down and Smile

Inspiration finds me in the oddest of places. Usually when I am calm, after a yoga class or meditation. And almost always when I'm by myself on a nice long breezy car ride. The inspiration for this blog came while I was spending the weekend at a holistic retreat in...

I've been back for about two weeks from Thailand and India and it's given me time to reflect on yet another incredible journey East.

Thailand is a pretty spectacular and beautiful place: greens like I've never seen, butterflies the size of birds flying everywhere, and there...

I have a younger sister, five years younger to be exact, and I am grateful for her every day. My sister and I are business partners and best friends and although she's younger than me, I've looked up to her as long as I can remember.

The emails that I have received since this blog went live a few weeks ago has been astounding! Schools have reached out wanting us to come and speak next year, people sharing their own personal stories of being bullied -- it almost seems as though it's the first time they've...

I really don't know how to begin. I've never considered myself much of a writer, well not a writer at all -- I always took on the verbal part of our business, have always been the "people person." But when I was asked to do this blog I was honored...
