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.

July 2, 2017

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.

Why We Need Urban Shamans

July 26, 2013

Shamans and mystics are important because they are interpreters of microclimates within our communities. Shamans cultivate their own personal relationships with the divine, with the fundamental principles of life. Their ability to find meaning within the mysteries of the universe, rather than through sanctioned books and renowned figures, necessarily destabilizes authoritarian power structures.…
