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…

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.

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.
