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.
