Ah, September. This month crept up on me ever so slowly, ever so quietly. I somehow rushed full tilt through July and August and suddenly it’s September. What does September mean to you? As a child, for me it meant the end of summer vacation and going back to school, getting a new school outfit… Continue reading September Soul Work prompt
My meditation practice has evolved over time as I learned (and continue to learn!) what works for me — the when, the where, and the how. And now I delve into meditating in liminal spaces.

Each prompt has an… Continue reading Build a relationship with Land

I am fortunate… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Tree Allies
