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…

8/28/17 Magical Praxis: Tarot’s Major Arcana (Divination 2 Workshop)

August 17, 2017

In Tarot, the Major Arcana cards are the 22 archetypal images that set the Tarot apart from a regular deck of playing cards. These universal archetypes are paradigms that exist in the realm of consciousness; they find their way into existence through our lives and actions. Once we’ve figured out which of the Tarot archetypes is currently at work in our lives, we are well on our way to solving its riddle and knowing what course of action we should take.…

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……

How I Became the Oracle of Los Angeles (part 2)

October 10, 2016

In my last post, we left off in San Francisco. I was a 19-year-old stripper with a passion for dance, a prescription for psych meds, and a desire to see the world. I’d just had a dream where a tarot wielding magician told me to go to Amsterdam. With $2,000 saved up, I bought a one-way AirTran ticket for “anywhere in Europe” and landed in Paris ready for my grand tour. Following the advice of an Ouija board, I arrived in…

How I Became the Oracle of Los Angeles — (part 1)

October 3, 2016

When I was 19 I had big dreams, but no idea what to do to accomplish them. My sense was that basically what you had to do was get involved with life. For me that meant: Moving to San Francisco on a whim and living in a big Edwardian house in the Western Addition with a chaos magician-cum-Big 5 Sporting Goods assistant manager; a clinically depressed baristo with a Leonard Cohen obsession; a speed addict who was hearing voices that…
