"Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing."—Arundhati Roy
I see this quote often. I can feel the truth of it deep in my bones and resonating in my heart, and every step of my journey is in service to this wisdom, in service to the healing of the Earth.
We live on an abundant planet, literally the garden of Eden. Heaven on Earth. No one part is more important than another and all parts are interconnected in a beautiful circle of life that holds us all—a multi-layered, multi-dimensional, ever expanding and continuous circle or spiral—where there is no beginning and no end.
And the awareness of this connection and BEING IN connection with others is how we, step by step, heart by heart courageously walk the path home to our own breath, our own joy and our own truth.
I desire sisterhood.
I crave community.
I believe in diving way beneath the surface of our feelings, emotions and experiences and allowing the Plant Spirits to support us, hold space for us, and craft medicine for us in a way that heals and balances the soul and helps us live joy filled, fully embodied lives.
Up till recently my work has been essentially solitary. I spend a great deal of time in my own garden and in my own thoughts and it has served me well. But my heart began whispering to me that it was time for me to step deeper into my work and show up in a way that I know not only serves my personal growth, but will help serve others too. Stepping out of my comfort zone is scary but without doing so I know growth isn’t possible.
My gardens have been the place I go to for peace, for solace, for the very connection I speak of above. It is in this solitude that I have nurtured the flowers that have nurtured me and helped me to remember the wisdom that is stored in the cells of all our bodies, and the guidance that is always available to us when we tune into our hearts.
Tuning into our own bodies, and especially our hearts, and then honoring what we discover is perhaps the greatest gift we can give ourselves, each other and the world at large.
Tuning in I have remembered that I am whole and that I am exactly where I am meant to be. But I have also remembered that there is a fine line between solitude and loneliness, and while I value the former, I know clearly that it is time to open up my garden gate and share my private process. We certainly are not meant to be on this journey alone!
The time has arrived then for me to become visible, to step deeper into embodying the wisdom of the Plant Spirits and of the Earth, that will not only serve my personal growth, but will help serve others too… and I know you feel this deep in your bones too.So I am making real something that I have been imagining for a long time.
The Soulflower Sanctuary is a place where we gather in a virtual circle to explore the wisdom and medicine that arises from within when we connect with our hearts to the spirits of the plants. A place where we remember and heal together.
Each Moon Cycle we invite in only one Plant Spirit as our guide with which to explore the classroom of our individual lives—together. It is a process of radical self-acceptance, rigorous honesty, spontaneous a-ha moments and inspired understandings. And the whole process ebbs and flows along with the cycle of the moon and the universal in-breath and out-breath that all of Nature shares.
This is the beauty and reality of working with the flowers, being in the moment and living with intention.
While in the Sanctuary you can expect:
🌀Gently-paced emails from me with in-depth content to inspire and deepen your relationship with the featured Soulflower.
🌀Private Facebook Sanctuary Group where we can check in with each other and share our experiences, insights and understandings as well as enjoy other live broadcasts, guest conversations, inspirational posts and check-ins in an ongoing virtual sacred circle. Only enrolled members can access the private group space each cycle and once the circle is open, no new members will be able to come in until the next New Moon to allow for trust and intimacy to flourish.
🌀New Moon LIVE Opening & Closing Circles in our private Facebook Group where we create the energetic container for all of us to invite the Plant Spirit into our lives for the moon cycle ahead, and where we release each other and the Plant Spirit at the end. Actively engaging in the energies of the Earth and Moon cycles throughout so that we begin to remember the cyclical nature of our own energy.
🌀Full Moon Circle via ZOOM where we will be able to share our Plant Spirit wisdom with each other, fill our hearts and experience together the energy of the featured plant spirit guide. A recording will be made available if you cannot attend live.
🌀An art lesson (don’t worry ZERO experience necessary), as well as printable journal and coloring pages to support your journey.
🌀AND...as a special gift for participating, you will receive a 10% discount coupon in your welcome email good towards anything on my website and valid for the entire moon cycle, in case you would like to have a copy of my book, journal, or deck to accompany you. 😉
This. Is. The. Next. Right. Step. We are truly wired for connection. Are you also craving depth, connection and community?
"I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship."—Brené Brown
I know first hand the power of a circle of women. Gathering together to share, to witness, to support and to grow together. We are infinitely more powerful together than we are walking this path alone. Together we can see, we can hear, and we can feel our shared experiences and the healing is extraordinary.
