wake up happy, change the world

Welcome! I'm Emma. I live in Portland, OR and I’m a web developer, writer, spiritual warrior, and self-help geek.

Together we can heal the world.

When we connect to the parts of ourselves we have denied or judged, we heal inside. When we connect to others in non-violence and empathy, we heal our relationships. When we connect to people who are different from us and marginalized, we heal the human family. When we connect to the Divinity within all things, we heal our souls and gain strength for the journey.

This is my path. Join me?
