Eros & Intution: Come Circle This Fall to Claim Your Inner Spark

Eros & Intution: Come Circle This Fall to Claim Your Inner Spark

I have been circling with other human beings for over 20 years. 

It began back in college--a feminist circle for queer and straight women, to speak our experiences, claim our truth, and support each other. 

When I moved to California when I was 23 I dove headlong into the worlds of birth, sex, healing and spirituality, and never looked back.  Many of these have been women's circles, or circles of queer folk, but what has always mattered most is coming together with intention, sincerity, vulnerability, and an open heart. 

For the past 8 years I have circled consistently with a small group of women, diving into our innermost realms and sharing all the tears, laughter, conflict and love that comes with getting real. 

Many times when I have shared about this circle with others in my life women eagerly ask if it is open, or if I know of other ones like it--the hunger to circle together is strong! 

For a long time I didn't have a good answer, because my circle was not open and I didn't really know anyone else who was doing something similar.

But today I have good news! 

This autumn I am co-facilitating a local/live 7 session women's circle with Amy White, an intuitive coach, medium and energy healer.

A Modern Day Witch  . . . 

~ Sees beyond the veil of the mundane to connect and contact the sacred/divine within everyday life
~ Works within the web of life for the benefit of all beings, including herself
Generously receives money as energy to support her family, her magic, her well-being and all that she wishes to pay forward and nourish in the world
Works to decolonize herself, reclaiming ancestral and Earth wisdom, and do her part to heal the trauma and birth a better world
Listens a lot

Summer Solstice Greetings ~ Courage, Solar Blessings & Open Hearts

Summer Solstice Greetings ~ Courage, Solar Blessings & Open Hearts

Like many of you, I have felt distraught, heartbroken, helpless and angry at the separation and detention of families seeking asylum and refuge in this country.  I struggle to know how to maintain, at times, the vitality to be present and take action in the face of so much trauma and violence.  

Today is the Summer Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere.  It is the longest day of the year and has been celebrated by humans all over the world for millenia.  For every 'wheel of the year' holiday (solstices, equinoxes, and crossquarter days like Beltaine) I send out a greeting to my Magic Potions for Grown-Ups subscribers.  These greetings are to help us tune into the energies of the season so that we might live in greater harmony with the natural world, not at cross-purposes. In light of all that is happening in the world, and especially here in the United States, I was moved to share this message with you as well {read more}
