Trying to be my own personal sunshine since mama nature is not on board this week here in Minnesota.
Some days self care means subtlety. Patience with my own body, and learning to listen to it above all else has been one of the hardest and best things I have ever learned. It often accompanies turning down the volume on the ego. “Above all else, listen to and honor your body as it is today”. As a teacher I repeat this often, and if years from now anyone ever remembers anything I told them, I hope it is this.

What is involved in a Deep Dive session?
This is a question I get asked a lot, and the answer is not an easy one, especially if I'm talking to one of my many "science is the only right answer" friends. I love you, and you know who you are <3.
The potential offerings in a Deep Dive are: Thai massage, Reiki, shamanic healing (this can take a vast array of forms), relaxation massage, tarot, oracle card or rune readings, aromatherapy, or crystal or sound healing. I often intuit physical or emotional manifestations in the body, and am often "given" plant allies to assist with these. These plant allies have taken many forms, from medicinal plants to apply or ingest, to flowers or trees with a sentimental value to the client. Some pretty powerful things can and have happened, when you are open to the experience.
Why do I "receive" plant allies for my clients during energy work? I do not have an answer for you. The truth is up until a year ago I was aware of, but was closing a window on most of my intuitive abilities. I preferred things I could logically explain, see, or prove. Then, on a retreat in Mexico I had a shamanic healing session that threw that window WIDE open, and ever since I've been blessed with these plant allies, among many other gifts (or curses, depending on the day/mood). The more I embrace what comes naturally without having to clutch the explainable world to my chest like Gollum in Lord Of The Rings, the closer to my true self I feel.
So there you have it. If you've read all the way to the end of this my gift to you is 20% off your first Deep Dive with the code "openmind". Thank you for reading.
If you have had a Deep Dive and you feel like sharing your experience I would LOVE for you to do so in the comments.
I’ve been watching a lot of physics/biology/astrophysics/microbiology/astronomy documentaries lately, and it is seriously effecting my ability to do much more than ponder how very little we KNOW about anything, how very little we know about our own bodies and our universe EXCEPT that we are all connected. We are all made of the same carbon-based star stuff together here on this ball spinning in an infinite space. Spacetime is the fabric that blankets us all. ✨
Anyway I remembered I’m a graphic designer and, for better or worse, made this today. It’s about well, everything (but especially birth, death, energy, spacetime, sound, vacuums, earth, cycles, and photosynthesis)

There is something about business cards that make things seem really official. It was a big scary step for me to start renting space instead of being an employee, and I am really happy to be offering all my services at Sattva. It is such a healing and nurturing space, and the people there have all been amazing. Thank you to everyone who supports me on my path. I couldn’t do it without you. Feeling gratitude and excitement for what is and what will come.
