THINGS THAT FEEL TRUE FOR ME
“The land knows you, even when you are lost.”
- Robin Wall Kimmerer
Authentic joy and deep fulfillment can co-exist alongside grief, pain & heartbreak.
Wild nature is inherently regenerative—from the broader macrocosmos we exist within to the microcosmic wisdom contained within each one of us.
Healing can arise when we are offered a supportive witness who allows us to feel what we feel and know what we know.
Liberation is not a solo endeavor and our capacity for wellness is always mutually intertwined within the web of all our relations.
MY WORK CAN SUPPORT YOU TO
Engage in practices of somatic awareness, ecological sentience, and experiential inquiry for personal and planetary healing.
Honor the joys, metabolize the losses, and craft beauty in the skin your in.
Tend your reciprocal connections and relationships—with your body, your closest of kin, your communities, the land, and the more-than-human world.
Divest from patterns of harm, dig out where they’ve taken root, and repair where hurt has been done.
Reimagine an alternative narrative that exists beyond the dysfunctions of business-as-usual.
Drop into a sense of agency, responsiveness, and resilience in the face of an uncertain and precarious future.
Exist with the profound complexities inherent in being human right now on planet Earth.
Determine how you're going to walk alongside others with dignity during difficult times.
