〰️ moody light bathroom jungle talk. that’s all.
〰️ full fledged frequencies. rooms that turn into sound temples. cascading voices and rumbling ribcage of song. both complex and oh so simple. so simple. the medicine of deep listening and rest and soundscapes may be my most favourite things to behold. i wonder how (and if?) it has moved / rearranged / delighted you? lullaby offerings this week: WEDNESDAY @goodspaceto - 8:30-10:30pm - toronto FRIDAY @theyogajungle - 6:30-7:45pm - bowmanville SUNDAY @yogahubbelleville -6-7:15pm - belleville see you there, song bird? 🎶

〰️ i come from a line of women gardeners. a plant prayer priestesshood. my mother and grandmother know how to weave a backyard and turn it into a stunning dreamscape hideout for both humans and butterflies. they both still go bananas when spring hits and the plants start rising. 🌿 when i was young, we would go for long walks into the forest where our cottage was in north saskatchewan. i would watch the two of them reach for high saskatoon berry bushes and pluck the delicious fruits. they showed us how to find wild blueberries and raspberry bushes and tiny, sweet wild strawberries. we learned how to forage for orange top mushrooms (and how to avoid toadstools) and my mother would stop everything she was doing when she found a patch of yarrow to behold and gather. 🌿 i’m not sure if they understood it, and i certainly didn’t at the time, but so many seeds were planted in my tiny mind that only in the last few years are growing into big, deep passionate commune with plants. 🌿 i sing to them walking in the forest. i set prayers on their little leaves and thank them for their medicine. i am in awe every fucking day for the worlds they weave and my delight to be in on their secrets. i am listening very, very carefully. i am learning slowly and surely. i am seeing everyday how heaven sings inside the calling birds and rising sun and ragged roots and the forest floor and Deer tracks and full moon illumination. i am arriving in the blueprints of my matriarch upbringing, and am weaving and singing myself into a wild life my bloodline intended me to have.
〰️ this is the way heaven speaks on this strange plane. #forestmusings #spiritsonghomestead

〰️ perhaps the gaze has shifted - the dreams clarified, closer to being realized perhaps the haze has lifted, the soundscapes of wild city rise have transitioned into tree frogs and developing cricket song. perhaps when we pray, when we sing, when we ask - something out there listens, quietly. perhaps it is not delivered in the ways we wish for, but sometimes perhaps, it arrives in even better shape than we possibly could imagine. #forestmusings
