If the Buddha were alive today, what would he say about the unique challenges we face?
So many of us go through our days feeling overwhelmed. We do our best to navigate the craziness of the modern world—finding a purpose while making ends meet, going down social media black holes but craving meaningful connection, and striving to maintain a healthy lifestyle in a society that seems to be falling apart . . .At the end of the day, we have a sneaking suspicion of some fundamental flaw—our “demons” rear their heads, manifesting for many of us as a chronic sense of not-enoughness.
Using The Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Path as a guide, Tea and Cake with Demons guides us to meet all our most common demons—shame, perfectionism, fixation, and self doubt—all while myth-busting the cultural narratives that keep us stuck… as we reveal the unshakable nature of our inherent self worth.

LOVING AND DIRECT, ADREANNA SPILLS THE TEA AND SERVES THE CAKE ON : ☕️
The limitations of binary thinking that keep us waging war against ourselves : Good / Bad. Delicious / Disgusting. Yes / No … and how to move towards the radical inclusion that makes us more loving— towards ourselves and others.
Dignified, Lovable, Neurotic : Why our worst habits and most difficult emotions are actually showing us the path towards our inherent brilliance.
Ditching the brittle plan and adopting the fluid path : How curiosity and riding the tides of uncertainty can be a lifelong path of practice.
Karma made me do it : Shifting our deeply entrenched patterns from a place of love, rather than critical self-reproach.
Beyond meditation. Why our sitting practice frequently plateaus — and how a juicy dose of “view” keeps our practice feeling robust, vital, and fresh.
The Root Poisons that keep us stuck in a cycle of feeling separate, selfish and scared.
How clear boundaries ultimately make us more generous people. Strong spine. Open heart.
Intention is everything. Everything. Elucidating our motivation is our ticket to more choice and more freedom.
The cultural myths of not enough-ness that we’ve all swallowed + internalized— and the truth of our fundamental wholeness.
