Did you get to see the full moon last week?
Gosh, she was beautiful!
Do you feel that magnetic draw to her? Your mouth opening in awe, your breath pausing, as she appears from behind the clouds. Or maybe you find yourself a bit more sensitive, a bit more emotional around the full moon time?
It's not just in your head. As women it's so natural to feel that connection. Our menstrual cycle is tied to the same cycle as the moon. And not just our cycles but also our emotions, our creativity, and our healing. Just as the animals in the forest behave differently around the full moon, so do we. Just as the moon pulls the tides, she also pulls at our emotions and our sense of self in this world.
Sounding like you? I've got the perfect course for you to dive into. A 4 week online course, called Moon and Womb Wisdom, that begins when you choose and ends when you choose. The course is set up over 4 weeks to align with the 4 phases of the moon but you can continue to explore with it for as long as you'd like, for as many moon cycles as you'd like.
So picture this...each week you are aware of where you are in your cycle and where the moon is in it's cycle. You get to learn more about that connection. You get to explore and experiment with this material through guided meditations, dance, and journaling prompts. And you get to head outdoors during this beautiful time of year to play with the nature prompts, feel that deep connection to Mama Earth, and let your creativity be ignited. And that creativity moves through you with the creativity prompts and dancing meditations that suit the moon/womb phase you are playing with.
This journey is bound to help you feel more connected to your body and to yourself as a woman, to nature and the creative being that you naturally are. To remind you of how powerful you are and how powerful honouring the feminine can be. To feel more in touch and more in tune with the rhythms of life, creativity, productivity, seasons. And that you are not failing if you're own internal rhythm does not match up with the speedy pace the rest of the world moves at. Not at all. It's an incredible gift to yourself, or to a special woman in your life, to play with this online journey.
Happy Summer Solstice, friends!
How are you celebrating today?!
I started my celebration this morning with meditation. Then I headed to Odell and greeted everything with love and gratitude. I sent kisses to the bids singing, the tall trees dripping rain water on me, the streams alive and flowing, the sweetest little wildflowers, the sky overhead, and the beautiful earth under my feet. I ran with my arms open to the sky, giggling and exclaiming "Thank You"! :)
We have so much to be grateful for! I love how nature supports us throughout our journeys. Think about the food you're drinking today and where that came through. And how the food you're eating came to be. The fresh air in your lungs. How good you feel and how well you sleep after a day spent outdoors. This time of year offers so much abundance!

Blessings, dear friends.
May you receive abundance in your hearts, your soul, your relationships, your finances, your work and play, and all other areas of your life.
I see you, you strong, intelligent, and creative woman.
And I see the part of you that doesn't believe you are these things.
You've been hiding behind your to-do list, your family responsibilities, your work, and caring for everyone else's needs but your own. And when you finally get a moment to breathe and reflect you think "Who am I? Is this how I want to live my life? Am I happy?" And then you easily go back to all your duties and responsibilities and forget about those lingering thoughts. Those questions that it's scary to think too much about.
Maybe you've been feeling them for a while. Maybe they're getting louder. Maybe their speaking through your bodily discomforts, your difficulty sleeping at night, or your extremely low energy.
I see you and I hold space for you.
When you work with me we spend time with these questions. We dive into them. It takes courage and the willingness to love those parts of you that you have not touched on for a while. But it will be oh so worth it. Because you are you and that is fucking beautiful, brilliant, and holy. That's who you are. Beautiful. Brilliant. Holy. Ready to follow the path your soul is guiding you to, but finding it difficult to do that on your own. Ready to connect with me, your coach, as a way of connecting more deeply with who you are, what turns you on, and what lights you up.
It's your time.
