2015 Year in Review

2015 – Regenesis

This year felt like one big rite of passage into womanhood.

As I sit here at the end of November, I take a deep breath and let it out. I am integrating and reflecting and taking time to let it all sink in.

I am no longer Tanya Paluso. I am now Tanya Kozlowski. Mother to Kali. Wife to Brent.

As someone who creates a lot of urgency and moves forward very quickly, I am for the first time taking my time, slowly savoring all of this. There is no rush. There is no hurry. I am enjoying the present moment.

Priestess of the moon

For years I had wondered how I could design my life and business to be in alignment with my own personal cycle as well as the rhythms and cycles of the earth.

It felt like a lot of work to “figure” it all out. So while I felt a calling, I didn’t answer it.

Until about a month ago.

Our Wedding Ceremony

ceremony

The Wedding: Brent & Tanya Oct 4, 2015

The Officiant: Dr. Sage Breslin

The Gathering

We are gathered here today in the presence of tribe and family to witness and support the marriage of Brent Mikel Kozlowski and Tanya Lynn Paluso.  We are so grateful for the presence of so many who join us here today and also acknowledge those who were not able to join us here today, whether in body or spirit.

The Invocation

In order to ensure that the process of blessing this union is a sacred one, we ask that our prayers be heard.

We ask that all that gather here, either incarnate or in spirit, are here in the best interest of Brent and Tanya.  Our prayer is that we manifest a sacred container for the blessed union we will create.  For those who are unable to support this union, we ask that you take your leave.  We ask this in the name of all that is High and Holy. We ask this in the name of all angels.

I wanted to cancel. Quit. Throw in the towel. Give up.

But I didn’t. Instead I asked, how can this be easier, lighter and more graceful?

I have to let go of control. I have to stop trying to hold it all together and surrender to grace.

There was no coincidence that I committed to hosting an all-day event a week before my wedding. Both events provided the same mirror for me: it’s not about cancelling or quitting. It’s about practicing the art of feminine leadership.

Lessons from Mastery of Circle Leadership

Last week, I hosted the Mastery of Circle Leadership retreat … one of the most powerful weeks of my life.

The training was a success and I got so many lessons that I want to share the top 5 in a minute.

It was my first time away from Kali, pumping in between sessions, learning how to practice self-care and balance it all. Intense. Exhausting. I completely lost it on Friday when Kali wouldn’t take the breast after getting used to bottle feeding, driving my fiance over his edge. We made it through and feeling stronger than ever as we are 54 days away from our wedding.

You could say that I’m in the fire, going through not only one major rite of passage (becoming a mother), but TWO in one year (becoming a wife). I feel like I’m getting squeezed, forced to let go of old patterns and old beliefs to find deeper intimacy, balance, joy and harmony with my family and work.
