MoonDay Musings: Creativity

What does creativity mean in your life? How does it manifest? Often, when I am working with clients — or talking with friends — I hear folks denigrate their own creative abilities.... denying that they have them... feeling hemmed in by traditional definitions of creativity.... afraid to consider that they might be creative at all.… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Creativity

Healing as Spiritual Kintsugi

It has been said that a shaman can be defined as a wounded healer... although there is more to being a shaman or shamanic practitioner, such as: the process of how that wound is healed and how that wound becomes transformative the relationship between the shaman and their community the relationship between the shaman and… Continue reading Healing as Spiritual Kintsugi

Radiate your light in the world

Wisdom from Seanmháthair Gealach (Grandmother Moon) at the Waxing Crescent Moon I love this time in the early days of our lunar journey.

Lunar theme for August: Everyday Sacred

The New Moon in Leo ♌︎ arrives on August 1st at 03:12 UTC, which for me here in Vancouver Canada is July 31st at 8:12 PM. For those of us in North America (and elsewhere), this is a Black Moon, i.e. the second New Moon in a single calendar month (i.e. July). For the rest… Continue reading Lunar theme for August: Everyday Sacred

MoonDay Musings: Lighten your Spirit

Maybe it's because I'm on vacation this week — or maybe it's just because I love to move, to dance, to sway to the rhythm of music and drums — but these words from Rumi struck a chord within me. When we move — in whatever way our physical body allows us — we free… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Lighten your Spirit
