Looking toward classes for 2021

Good grief, it’s mid November already. Still feels like March. How odd. As I tend to do around this time of year, I’m weighing and evaluating my offerings for the next calendar year (actually, looking through the archives, I may not have made a post like this since 2017). It’s going to be at least…

Change the NOW

I’ve run into a new form of… I don’t know whether to call it spiritual bypassing, privilege, or unconscious bigotry. I’ve been chewing on it a bit and trying to find the right words. There has been a trend, especially in the last 10 years, for members of a marginalized group, when creating workshops, to…

Support yourself so you can support others

We all feel like we’ve been working hard already, possibly even struggling, so it’s important to make sure to recharge your batteries. You can’t support others if you don’t put your own oxygen mask on first. Support yourself; it makes you a good member of the community. So start by asking yourself what feeds you?…

Ongoing geomagnetic storm increasing on September 29th

SpaceWeather issued this missive about geomagnetic activity over the weekend: A solar wind stream is heading for Earth, and it could spark the strongest geomagnetic storm in more than a year. NOAA forecasters say storm levels could reach category G2 (moderately strong) when the gaseous material arrives on Sept. 29th. Bright “equinox auroras” are already…

Forms of Healing: Acoustic Therapy

Forms of sound therapy have been used to facilitate healing for thousands of years around the world. Chanting, drumming, singing, and instrumentation can all create change in the body and mind. The ancient Greek mathematics mystic Pythagoras even developed a mathematically based musical scale that had such profound effects that it was brought to the…

What in the World: Spaaaace

This is a continuation of the conversation that was posted last week, but we leave earth and go out into space… My ever fabulous Social Media Marketing Assistant, Teagan, says I should give y’all more resources, like links, and she put together this treasure trove for you: (00m36) Betelgeuse and its mysterious dimming, which has…

September, and then October: Ancestors, Grief, and Stillness

I feel like we’re in wrap up and catch up energies currently. I’m sure part of it is the fact that we’re coming up on October, which is a grief month for me, so my own personal energy is more sluggish. Not to mention everything that’s going on in the world. You’ll remember, a few…

Five Minute Meditations

Meditation is important. If you have been following me for any length of time, you probably know that. A number of people offer five minute meditations and I have, up until now, resisted that idea. The body responds to physical, mental, or emotional pressure by releasing stress hormones (such as epinephrine and norepinephrine) that increase…

Money, Addiction, and the Concept of Enough – The Long Read

Money is a poor excuse for a God. Are you surprised by my assertion that we’ve made it into a god? What do people mean when they say “I’ve lost faith in the economy”? Why does the United States put “In God We Trust” on our money? Why do people (and the state) determine their,…

Connecting Pursuits: A Reading from the Tarot Playshop

I have been reaching Tarot in various forms for a number of years. I currently have a monthly Tarot Playshop, where we focus on the practical aspects of reading; it’s good for any experience level. Anyway, in the course of teaching, at least while we were in person, I always ask my students to submit…

Letting Go to Make Room For the New

Endings are as inevitable as beginnings. Change is the only constant. Death is a transition. Energy does not vanish. These times are bringing up a lot of grief for people. The way of life we have known is no more. People are still coming to terms with that. A vaccine may only be 50% effective,…

First Harvest Cross Quarter of the Goddess

“Women are the weavers of the Universe; through our bodies we take in pure creative essence and then actively create a dynamic form. Modern women can access this capacity with intention only when we know how to work with the underlying patterns that shape our creative range. “ Adapted from Wild Feminine by Tami Lynn…
