Why I Shaved My Hair

On April 30, we did a thing, Olivia (our 13-year-old) and me. I've wanted to do this for a few years now. It's a reclaiming of myself, my body, my life. Releasing the past, what no longer serves me, and maybe never did.

Living in a culture that has tried to define and tell me who I should be got in the way of my ability to see what I believe and who I truly am. I am now living more in My Truth. It's a process, for sure, and I expect it will be a lifelong journey.

For the past several years, my tradition at Vegan Summerfest has been to teach a Flash Mob song to everyone who comes to my Nia classes at the conference.

This year, I was lucky enough to get a video of the whole song: Give Love, by one of my favorite artists, Andy Grammer (he's on tour with a new album coming out soon—he and his amazing band are not-to-be-missed, so check 'em out if they come to your town).

Vegan Summerfest is a 5-day conference and on the last night, we have a big...
