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.

upcoming events


NYC Meetup september 28, 2018

We will be attending Matt Kahn's group healing tour stop in NYC, Transcending Your Patterns. And 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. Either come for Matt's Friday/Saturday event, and/or just come to the Meetup. It's all good. Details to follow, watch this space!


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.
