Everyday on the river these girls filled me with inspiration, joy, love and wonder. We laughed, we played, we screamed, we danced and we ate a ridiculous amount of Cheetos. I will always hold you and these memories in my heart. Thank you, E&B.

In Buddhism, strong emotions like anger, craving, pride, and jealousy are known as kleshas—conflicting emotions that cloud the mind. The kleshas are our vehicle for escaping groundlessness, and therefore every time we give in to them, our preexisting habits are reinforced. In Buddhism, going around and around, recycling the same patterns, is called samsara. And samsara equals pain.
We keep trying to get away from the fundamental ambiguity of being human, and we can’t. We can’t escape it any more than we can escape change, any more than we can escape death. The cause of our suffering is our reaction to the reality of no escape: ego clinging and all the trouble that stems from it, all the things that make it difficult for us to be comfortable in our own skin and get along with one another.
If the way to deal with those feelings is to stay present with them without fueling the story line, then it begs the question: How do we get in touch with the fundamental ambiguity of being human in the first place? In fact, it’s not difficult, because underlying uneasiness is usually present in our lives. It’s pretty easy to recognize but not so easy to interrupt. We may experience this uneasiness as anything from slight edginess to sheer terror. Anxiety makes us feel vulnerable, which we generally don’t like. Vulnerability comes in many guises. We may feel off balance, as if we don’t know what’s going on, don’t have a handle on things. We may feel lonely or depressed or angry. Most of us want to avoid emotions that make us feel vulnerable, so we’ll do almost anything to get away from them.
But if instead of thinking of these feelings as bad, we could think of them as road signs or barometers that tell us we’re in touch with groundlessness, then we would see the feelings for what they really are: the gateway to liberation, an open doorway to freedom from suffering, the path to our deepest well-being and joy. We have a choice. We can spend our whole life suffering because we can’t relax with how things really are, or we can relax and embrace the open-endedness of the human situation, which is fresh, unfixated, unbiased.

It’s officially Fall, my favorite time of year! I’ve been waiting for my first #tarantula sighting of the season and I was blessed with this little beauty on my way to lunch 🥰 #flagstaff #fall #spiderlove #tarantulamatingseason
These feet dream of being squished into climbing shoes and making their way along limestone l/edges. The winds will howl, the trees always shake and temps will be heavenly 🥰

Met with @boltgrl66 yesterday to pick up my new Dude indoor #climbing #aerialarts #crashpad design. 🥰 I LOVE it!
The same bomber materials we are known for but a lot easier to stuff with foam and super simple to rotate the foam when needed with this new clamshell #10 zipper closure. Woohoo!!!
In other news... I’ll have the new #voodooclimbing scratch mats at the @focusclimbing climbing comp on September 28th. Some of the mats feature our heavy duty orange haul bag vinyl material with a luscious velvet top the other is made with ballistic nylon and a variety of plush velvets and upholstery fabrics because plain old carpet is boring.

I’m ordering a run of these tees for the @focusclimbing comp at the end of this month. If you have any style and color requests, please message me 🤗
Also, I need your HELP!
I have received multiple requests for men’s tees in Red 🤔 I did not even think of ordering red... so please swipe, take a look at the reds and maroons and let me know your favorite in the comments. Thank you!!!🥰

Thanks for the fun evening @jetsbeads and @macksanders26 ☺️ I love being a beginner. It’s crazy fun to learn, ask a million questions and feel challenged on so many levels. It’s also a great reminder that all good things take practice, patience and lots of work 🥰 I love making progress even when it’s taken away on my next try! 💗💗💗 #imightfalloverbecauseimgoingsobig
Afterglow from a proper butt kicking. Thank you @paragonathletics for the warm welcome home, your friendship and for all of your help healing over the years. I’m forever grateful, Ryan & Betsy! Love that it’s always a challenge in a super fun way!
Swipe to watch Ryan demonstrate one of the exercises... I did not do this version, I was allowed to use both forearms on the foam but when he mentioned this version, I had to see it 💪🤭🤯 #flagstafftraining #paragonstrong #climbing #bouldering #community
Started my summer road trip visiting with one of my oldest and dearest friends, @shellyfordaz in lovely Brighton, CO while working the Hanuman Festival in Boulder. So much fun to reminisce on our many adventures together over the years... my faves include mountain biking the White rim trail in the Canyonlands and riding our road bikes 500+ miles in a week long bike tour in Idaho with some of our dearest friends. I finally visited her lovely new home filled with love and furry babies & of course the #Bees ❤️❤️❤️ @copperandthebee
Reflecting on my summer travels and feeling so much love and appreciation for the sweet friends and family I was lucky enough to connect with along the way 🥰 #voodooclimbing #hanumanyogafestival2019 @lisanic8 @d_mauz11
I’m pretty sure Vinny missed my van just as much as he missed me... he spent most of the afternoon napping in it. #home #flagstaff #catlove #vinnytheterror #ithinkibroughttherain #monsoons #myfavoriteseasonintheFLG
