New Moon Ritual for Intention Setting

The New Moon is the beginning and end of the lunar cycle. This is the time when the moon is directly between earth and the sun, and becomes backlit making it appear invisible. But even though we cannot see the moon, we know she is there. This phase of darkness offers an opportunity to reflect…

What’s with all the moon stuff?

For those of you who know me, you know I am a huge fan of getting in touch my wild af divine feminine by howling at moons (sometimes in public), twirling under stars, writing things, burning shit, and doing all kinds of craziness in the name of lady luna. After several years of projecting my…

Full Moon Ritual for Release

The Full Moon represents a time for releasing the things that no longer serve us. It could pertain to projects, relationships, negative thoughts, beliefs, or behavior patterns – pretty much anything that might be holding us back from truly loving ourselves. This is my favorite full moon ritual that is designed to help you cleanse…

What Are Archetypes?

What are archetypes? Archetypes are innate universal psychic patterns. They represent distinct personality traits that are present in everyone, but our dominant traits are all different. Archetypes are all neutral – though, there are light and shadow attributes of each archetype. While archetypal awareness dates back to Plato, who called them Forms, the brilliant psychoanalyst,…

Sometimes You Need a Good Punch in the Face

Five years ago today, my best friend traveled to Dallas to ring in the New Year. With crimson lips, sparkles, lashes, and stilettos we celebrated at the wine bar down the street. Classically Taurus, I overindulged and by 1am we were safely home and curled up on the sofa, my gentleman friend softly snoozing beside…

Finding My Dharma

I know that spiritual, physical, and emotional evolution requires altering behaviors, habits, and sometimes moving past belief systems and relationships that no longer align with my purpose. But knowing these things are necessary doesn’t make…

Root Veggies Forever

Now that I’m teaching high school, I have a whole new appreciation for Thanksgiving Break. It is necessary. I’ve spent almost this entire week in pjs and sweatpants, and am pretty sure I’m a better person for it. I’ve caught up on sleep, puppy bonding, restorative yoga practice, my Christmas decorations are up and twinkling…

Southwestern Veggie Scramble

I figured out in my early 20s that if I don't plan and prepare my meals in advance, I'm probably not going to eat. (Vata anyone?) The only problem with meal prep is the monotony. Some people are okay eating the same thing 5 days in a row. Others refuse to touch leftovers. I'm somewhere in the…

That time we howled at the moon

Exactly a month ago, I packed my car with shorts, a swimsuit, 8 meals for 12 adults, and a long-lost friend from my early 20s to co-lead a wellness retreat in the tiny town of Mt. Ida, Arkansas. Nestled in the Ozarks overlooking Lake Ouachita, Nikki (of Mind Body Mana) and I lead ten beautiful…
