Stand Back and Breathe

I have lately been so heartbroken and angry about all that has happened in the last week (last months, last years). When I see George Floyd’s face it is all I can do to not cry. And today one of my friends told me she hasn’t touched, let along hugged, another person since March 11 […]

Wednesday Writing Prompt 18 – choices choices

“You become who you choose to be. Yet, fully choosing who you are and will become is rare. We’ve been brainwashed into believing we don’t have such a choice. Facing the responsibility and freedom of choosing your own way is, indeed, scary.” – Benjamin Hardy

Transcendental Groove with the New Moon in Gemini

I felt different. I felt alive. I felt good.

That feeling of shift, change, transformation – I love it! I tapped into something that has been dormant, and I am excited to fold that energy into my life (and art and music and teaching) in a more conscious way.

Have you done any intentions for the New Moon?

A Town without Music

Taking Chances Flagstaff is a little gem of a town filled with musicians. I mean, there is music going on here on any given night, with top-notch musicians doing their thing. Usually. Over the past couple of months, the town (obviously) has been silent. There is no music. It feels weird and sad. It was […]

Co-Creating with the Cosmos – Lunar Lesson for Gemini

Gemini is a much more light-hearted energy than all the earth energy we have been dealing with – though over the next few months we’ll have Venus, Mercury, the Sun and the New Moon squaring Neptune and Mars in Pisces, creating the energy of confusion. Embrace the energy of not-knowing! How to do that? Focus on your imagination and what you want to create. Very open-ended energy. Be like a child – remember how you used to play the game of Make Believe? Let it be like that. Be in that space of play, let it be real – you can always set an alarm to bring you back home in time for dinner.

Co-Creating with the Cosmos: An Exploration of Personal and Collective Empowerment through Lunar Cycles

The closest and most visible heavenly sphere, the moon, sets up a substantial visceral experience of the galactic dance. Our bodies are made of around 70 percent water, and the moon, like its pull on the earth’s tide, has an influence on our emotional and physical energies.

Did you know you can coordinate decisions, intention-setting, and acting on plans for your life with the moon’s cosmic influence?

Each mo(o)nth, the moon moves through a new position of fertile focus based on the astrological placement of the New Moon phase. In Astro Luna Alchemy, you will learn how to most potently tap into the celestial power period of the month to seed your intentions, concentrate your potential for creative manifestation, and move through growth with grace, agility, and confidence.

The Full Moon phase illuminates something previously unseen, its silvery light offers a new perspective. Luna calls for your reflection – this is a time to celebrate and acknowledge the ripening of an intention or desire as well as to confirm what no longer needs focus. You will learn how to embody the wave of creative flow, honor the expansion of your vision, and consciously release patterns or beliefs that no longer fit your dream.

Music Monday – Earth

Spooky, Beautiful, Earthy Norupo Krigsgaldr I’ve seen the live video of this one, but this animation is fascinating. Traust Shaman LIFA I may have posted LIFA before. This band is scary and weird and good. It must be hypnotic to actually perform this music. It would be fascinating to see them live. What a trip!
