I envision a world where young girls are taught to honour their womanhood, to trust in the power of their wombs, to know the strength and initiation that menarche provides, to know their cycles, to empower the force of life residing in our sacred vessels. i envision a world where growing older is honoured and looked at as a sign of great knowledge, not weakness or becoming irrelevant. one where “aging well” does not refer to ones appearance but how happy and peaceful one feels. i envision a world where it’s normal to offer menstrual blood to the plants, trees and earth as our ancestors once did in order to give back to the soil that nourishes us. i envision a world where we walk the deer trails to glean wisdom and sit in ceremony with our brothers and sisters to build community. i envision a world where a pre-requisite to beginning school is meditation. today is a day for dreaming and making new realities. jai ma.

A few years ago i walked through this labyrinth. in the middle there was a meditation bench, i sat for awhile breathing in the fresh, clean air, taking in the beauty of this place with all of my senses. i lost track of time, when i finally emerged, i walked back out following the way i took in, everything was the same except i was different

Play, intuition and creativity. for me these days it looks like creating art, then destroying it, building collages that come directly from a part of me that doesn’t have to match, be symmetrical or look good, making pixie dust for my niece. it also looks like baths, lots of baths, regular b****t massage, re-discovering my yoni, paying close attention to my yes and even closer attention to my no. it looks like being a kind woman and not a nice girl. it’s committing to a daily meditation practice so that i can be connected to myself.(which also brings up fatigue, anger and frustration that’s been living in my nervous system) which in turn requires extreme compassion. it looks like playing apples to apples with friends and laughing so hard water shoots out of my nose. it also looks like going out for some photos and ending up in a snowball fight with my father-in-law. how do you honour the wild being that resides within?

Have you heard?? britt over @flopsylife has written a book. it is the most helpful print i have ever read about downsizing and organizing your closet. britt is such an inspiration to me, everything she does is to help people feel more comfortable in their skin. true to who she is, britt touches on some of the mental health reasons why we hoard clothing and how to release some of those beliefs. for me, it’s not just a book about creating a lifetime wardrobe but a also a guide to live in a way that promotes more organization and health. this book is loaded with tips and tricks on how to de-clutter your closet and your mind. it is also a workbook that takes you step by step through the process. britt even lists her go to ethical shops for all of your clothing needs. she is an absolute genius when it comes to making home life simple and beautiful. i now have way less clothing but each item is sustainable, well made and i love each piece. win win. .

The gift of pain and surrender
i’ve been pondering chronic pain and awareness. speaking as someone who has a little guardian angel called pain, i wanted to offer some support to those of you who go about your day with this ally. a wise woman once said “your pain keeps you from becoming someone you’re not”
as i reflected on this statement, i realized she was absolutely right. my physical pain ally has helped me tremendously in cutting things out of my life that just don’t work. anytime i am in the midst of pain i think about this grouping of words and i am immediately thrown into gratitude.

the following are just some tidbits that i’ve learned for myself that actually apply to everyone. just take out the word pain and replace it with whatever you’re going through. *there are real physical boundaries that need to be honored. everyone is different and has requirements to keep their vessels in tip-top shape. if yours is pain, utilize it in a way to offer yourself more love, more compassion, more slowness/presence in your day. become the mother of your body. *you are actually miraculous. you have deep reserves of strength. you are not weak. you are not fragile. you get up, you do the life things and quite often you do them while experiencing pain (physically or emotionally) *you are not a bad person if you have not overcome your pain (heartache, jealousy, anger or whatever it is) you are whole and complete and worthy of love.
so whatever season you are in on this vast sliding scale called life, honour it, trust in its intelligence and do things that make you happy, regardless of the pain. if it’s going to stick around, might as well take it on a fun journey

What do i even say about this incredible boss babe. katie @clothing_bar_yyc was one of the first stores to carry my line. she continues to inspire me with her support of local vendors, woman in need charities and total baddassness. all that aside, she is just a warm and friendly woman with an amazing ability to make you feel good. i am stoked to be part of her vision, mid-afternoon heart opening conversations and shop dates. shopping consignment is a great way to reduce waste, support others and express your own unique style. @clothing_bar_yyc is located in marda loop in a cute, little house

When i think of everything that's going on in the world and start to feel overwhelmed, there is something that i can always do. i can be thankful for my life. my imperfect, perfect life. it is full of incredible joys, deep sadness, fits of laughter and bursts of tears. it is full of woman who inspire me, beauty that astonishes me and music that fills me. it is full of mystery, magic, death and great voids. it is full of choices to grow or remain the same. it is full of adventure both on land and in my own body. today i give thanks for being here with all of you. we are a brave bunch .

I've been dabbling in the realm of deities, gods and goddesses. as i sit here at a magical ranch in the silence of wilderness i've been pondering how these archetypes play a role in my life. to study them is to bring their energy back to life. to allow their wisdom to help guide us back to fulfilling our destiny here on earth. they weave their magic as we traverse different phases of our lives. we can certainly call on them when we face a particularly challenging time
.
.
.
recently, i have been immersed in the goddess persephone who spends part of the year in the darkness of the underworld and part of the year in the light of spring and newness. symbolically, this is such a harbinger of the times, a power that shoots forth only after withdrawing into the earth
.
.
.
she teaches through her own journey of imprisonment, abandonment and abuse how to find personal power and integrate the lessons of the mystical underworld into to day-to day life. she shows how to honour and develop ones inner life and navigate in alternative realities under times of stress. i was also surprised to learn that she works intimately with essential oils, potions and lotions. reminds me of someone i know 👩‍🔬
.
.
.
.
i think i'm about to embark on a bit of a journey with this subterranean queen and vegetation goddess. anyone out there mesmerized by the power of these goddess archetypes? i'd love to hear your journeys with them

Having the courage and vision to start something new is never easy. it takes a certain type of person to start a business and see it through all of the challenges life can throw at you. francesca is the wonderful woman behind @outsidetheshape . she has created an atmosphere where local artists have a hub to showcase their craft, learn new skills and interact with the public. if you haven't had the chance to stop in and check out her extremely cute shop, i suggest getting down there. she carries some of the most unique, one of a kind gifts and also offers workshops and fun evening events

Working with plants has been such an incredible gift. as i come to know the plant kingdom a little more for fully, i begin to understand myself in relation to these beautiful life forms. they are such incredible givers. they come as janitors to mop up our leaky bits. they take late night and early morning emergency calls from our bodies. they help us ease anxiety, boost immunity and lovingly extend their souls to us so that we may traverse this earthly plan with a little more ease. on this snowy october morning i am grateful for our green allies and the changing of the seasons

When gathering wisdom i often need a moment or two to fully integrate what i've learned so that it can blossom and spread into other areas of my life. usually this means more nature, friends and solitude. less, way less social media.
this summer has brought me many blessings and many teachings to integrate. so much depth
**
i've had some pretty incredible wildlife encounters that have left me speechless and absolutely awestruck. instead of looking in a book (which is awesome and fun) i started to research the animal, the surroundings, the food, where it sleeps and how it mates. this allows me to better read into what wants to be known
**
i get to work with woman i love every day. i wanted to fill my time learning and growing with organic gardening, sustainable clothing, herbs and botanicals. these wise woman practice patience, love and community. thank you for allowing me in your realm. @raedunphyaromatics , @fieldstudyshop , @sensesofthesoul . if you haven't had a chance to check out these absolutely lovely humans, i suggest dropping in
**
i was also blessed to travel to san diego to meet some incredibly strong, loving, vibrant woman for the first weekend of a year long apprenticeship where we get to dive deeply into the fabric of reality, practice self love and acceptance and awkwardness all day long. the wise woman tradition, non-violent communication, mantra, all the herbal healing and and and... i'm still unpacking that incredible first weekend. my heart is actually bursting for these woman @activeculturefamily **
i've taken on a practice of daily herbal infusions, dream journaling, kundalini. as well as finding and sitting with my green ally (herbal plant friend for life) i've been hitting up the bird sanctuary every evening sitting with horsetail and am greeted every night with animal and bird medicine. yesterday i watched a b****r drag some branches to his dam and patiently waddle back and forth, so much care put into his home. two great horned owls coo-ing at each other and a m****r of crows dive bombing them
**
for those of you who don't know me, this is who i am and what i do. thank you for following along this wild ride.
