F L U X / . . From +6 to -30 in a matter of minutes, our backyard yesterday looked like Spring had sprung with nearly all accumulated snow had sunk into the soil. This morning, Winter comes back, as she does, again. . . I wonder so much about the shock of this weather on our own systems and how our family of other species (think Trees, think 4 legged ones, think the Flying ones) handle these extreme fluxes. . . I also ponder why we as human beings think we are the superior system, when these other beings can withstand these wild shifts with such grace and determination? I bet there are not many of us who could (physically, perhaps metaphorically?) stand naked outside in a blizzard for days on end and come out the other side blooming. . . Praise for the beings that behave boldly in the midst of torrential change and wild weather. May we see their strength and be humbled by it 🌿
Good evening to you beautiful beings. I hope these first few days of our new cycle is proving to be sweet. And if it's not sweet (maybe you are completely heartbroken or devastated or delirious or maybe you have been fighting a nasty-ass flu like me for the last 3 days), that's okay, too. No matter how sticky the start, perhaps we can ask where are the places and spaces we can be a bit kinder to our sore or tender spots? Just a thought ✨ . . For those of you (my Toronto community) who know you are gonna need a reset and a replenish and a slow down and a space maker by the end of this month, I am excited to be joining with the remarkable @thequietco for an offering of sound, movement and meditation. . . Meditate, Move and Restore with Sound Saturday, January 20th 10:30 AM -12:00 PM @roamingfocusstudio 30$ . . We have just a handful of spots left for this sweet event. Let me bathe you in sonic vibes inside the sweetest space (sound bath in a loft, anyone???). We hope to see you there. 🙏🏼✨❤️
D A N C E / . . Dance is my movement of choice, always. Offer me deep beating hearts of musical scapes, hot bodies in sync with Spirit, and a safe space to explore what our Souls are trying to say... And I am the happiest bee in the hive. This Saturday, I will be offering crystal soundscapes for @consciousdanceparties G I V E + G A T H E R L O V E event at @yogavillageto with the sweet @pathwaystobliss. This will be a wildly beautiful evening of healing arts, ecstatic dance and sound meditation with proceeds going to The Toronto Rape Crisis Centre. Link is up in profile ☝🏽 . . Come and shake awake the New Year with us 🙌🏽🦄🔥
W I N T E R // . . I take a moment to honour the way you are moving through me this year. It is very different. I have little resistance to your hold and am finding the beauty of your chill, your darkness, your stillness much easier to feel. I am grateful to be on a part of this planet that experiences all sorts of seasons. I like to witness Mother Nature move through her ages and phases and faces. She is so beautiful, don't you think? . . Prayer for you today: I wish for tenderness and warmth for you and all you love. I wish for you to take any possible time to rest and create and breathe deep and have a bath and read something juicy. I wish for you to take in the beginning of this season with Welcome and allow your own being to mirror all that is with out. . . Loving you with all the warmth in my little heart.
H E A T // . . Ohhhhh just a small reminder to myself that last year at this time my love @elastchance and i were on Lake Atitlan soaking up sunrises and volcanoes and warmth and the beauty of Guatemala. it's minus 35 today in the county and i need the reminder that somewhere it's not the arctic. 😱
B R E A K // . . Necessary for a recalibration. A disconnection for reconnection. Clearing out my mind. Release of distraction. A coming back to centre. And Maybe most importantly Time to work on the creations that wish to come through in the next few months. A handful of days of social media-lessness will be the medicine this heart / mind / soul needs so desperately. . . May the space of these last few days of 2017 be nourishing and soft, quiet and creative. May you be ready for the wild ride and the big magic of this coming cycle. . . I love you.
