Brooke and Vanessa-Brooke Thomas-0120.jpg

Long time friends Vanessa Scotto and Brooke Thomas are having conversations about being on a spiritual path in the modern world. What does that even mean? What is a real evolution of our lives? How do we embrace everything- all the beauty and crazy, the joys and the messes, the bliss and the grit that is a human life? We explore more questions than answers each week on the Bliss and Grit podcast.

Meetup at Matt kahn's transcending your patterns event

Ny, NY, september 29th, 2018

We will be attending both Friday evening and Saturday of Matt Kahn's group healing tour stop in NYC, Transcending Your Patterns. While we're there, we will hold a Meetup for Bliss+Grit! Community is so key, and we are so grateful for you all. This will be an informal social gathering so that we can all make new friends, see old friends, and generally revel in being with Our People- while also chatting it up about what we're getting from Matt's weekend. We plan to meet during the lunch break on Saturday the 29th. Click the sign up link below to get on the email list.


Science and nonduality conference: the mystery of being human

San Jose, CA October 24-28

We are so grateful to be moderating a panel at this year's SAND (Science and Nonduality) Conference during a year when their theme is so close to our hearts: humanness on the spiritual path. Our panel is titled Embracing Yin: Awakening in the Body. We will be joined in discussion with teachers Jeannie Zandi, Kiran Trace, and Dorothy Hunt to explore themes related to the feminine movement of embodiment and what it means to live a fully human existence within physical form once you’ve awakened from the dream of separation. 

We will be in attendance for the full conference, but if you are coming just for our panel, it is on Saturday the 27th from 3:30-5:30.
