A Cure for Despair – Simple Spell for the New Moon in Virgo

September 19, 2017

  A few days ago, I was talking to a new friend who’s super active in the world of social justice. Despite the fact that healing the world is her life’s work, she spoke of how sometimes she’s filled with despair. She sees racism in everyone and everything, including herself. She sees it in every institution. She sees systematic injustice everywhere. Pollution everywhere. The military industrial complex and the corruptive spores of capitalism infiltrating every aspect of our lives. Similarly, I have clients…

9/21/17 – Ceremonial Breathwork: Finding Your Root (Workshop)

September 13, 2017

Generally, I hold these Ceremonial Breathwork sessions about once per month. Each session focuses on an issue that I’ve been working on personally or that’s been coming up a lot with my clients. This month, the focus is grounding, or, finding your root. Personally, because I spend so much time working on the computer, I find myself pulled out of my body and into the weird, frantic space of the internet. Grounding practices help me reconnect with my body, and…

Grounding Sessions – Special Offer for the Month of September

September 12, 2017

This month, I’m offering some very special Grounding Sessions to help you reconnect with the parts of yourself you feel like you’ve lost. Grounding is about re-establishing a sense of safety, a connection with the earth, with our body, with the things that nourish us, and the people who love us. When we’re grounded, we take care of our bodies, and the earth itself. Grounding means not making decisions based on what other people might think of you, or out…

7/20/17 Ceremonial Breathwork: Claim Confidence Workshop

July 3, 2017

When I was an undergrad at dance school, most of the boy dancers would really claim their confidence. Many of the boys could barely turn a pirouette or point their foot and still they’d get out on the floor to do their combinations all like, “Watch this!” At the same time, often girl dancers with years more experience, able to turn five pirouettes without batting an eye, would mutter about their own imperfections, not wanting to draw attention to themselves.…

7/31/17 – Magical Praxis: Trust Yourself (Divination 1 Workshop)

July 2, 2017

You see a bunch of psychics and they all tell you you’ll get the thing you want and then… you don’t. Every five minutes you get a new sign that you and your beloved are supposed to be together buuuuut… s/he doesn’t return your phone calls. You have a strong intuition that you should do a certain thing — move to a new country, quit your job, talk to a specific agent about your book — but when you do……

Hey Jealousy! — Oracle Appears in The Millions

June 15, 2017

Morrissey wasn’t wrong when he said, “We hate it when our friends become successful.” I don’t think there’s a creative person alive who hasn’t felt that pang when one of their friends lands some big show, or some grant, or some great publishing deal. Jealousy double hurts because a) you want something you don’t have, and b) you feel guilty for envying a friend who finally got something THEY wanted. If this experience sounds familiar, you need to read this…

Workshop: Writing Is Magic – May 13, 2017

May 8, 2017

Many artists create themselves. We are born middle class, or broke. We don’t choose our nationality, our gender or our race. Even though I’m sure many folks I know would consider me New Age, I don’t believe we choose our parents in some pre-birth akashic social contract. We get dropped into life from the mysterious Beyond. Our karma was created by our ancestors, we don’t get a choice in it. When we arrive here on planet earth, our only recourse,…
