SENSING IN THE DARK

This Mercury Rx that has asked us to turn inwards, to swim in murkiness, to let uncertainty take the lead, to lose not in the sense of not winning, but losing in the sense of surrendering to ending cycles and embracing conditions of re-membering, redirection, and re-creation. This work is not just for Autumn and Winter. In fact, for me,

The note offers no subtlety or modulation, like an one note instrument or a speaker without volume control.⁣ ⁣ Quality patchouli, distilled with expertise, has aged

THE DIVINE FEMININE AS A ‘TREND’

We can all agree that patriarchy wants to silence, control, and exploit the Divine Feminine, but how about examining healing and the Divine Feminine as a “trend”?
