LA MARIPOSA 🦋 BUTTERFLY WOMAN : An art series to heal your relationship with your body.
Artists are Chloe Casdagli & Elizabeth McLeod
You will find the inspiration for this series from Joyous Body : The Wild Flesh from "Women Who Run With the Wolves", By Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
Our reclaiming of our bodies and wild nature will be the theme of this upcoming fall and winter Intentional Creativity offering.
May we learn to enJOY our beautiful bodies, regardless of size, shape, capacity, speed, mannerisms, and age through self acceptance and a primal relationship with La Mariposa.
Our bodies speak. Our bodies remember. Our instinctual psyche lives in our magnificent forms.
"Women have good reason to refute psychological and physical standards that are injurious to spirit and which severe relationship with the wild soul. It is clear that the instinctive nature of women values body and spirit far more for their ability to be vital, responsive, and enduring than by any measure of appearance."

7Directions dance ceremony altar from our student led dance on Saturday. We danced through grief, shock, anger and transmuted into love and agency. With open hearts and the support of community we landed on our feet inspired to bring positive change. May the Mother of us all come into the hearts and souls of the lost and afraid ones now.

Let there be Light
“Before we made our great journey to Mother Earth, the Great Spirit knew the lessons our soul must learn. Many think that the struggles and hardships in their life is some kind of curse or bad luck they have received. The universe is not conspiring against us and our soul has been specifically chosen to go through our own unique life experiences so we can achieve a higher consciousness and a more evolved soul. We are all connected and related as all life comes from the source, so if we truly want the reality our heart desires then it is our responsibility as individual souls to evolve and that will raise the consciousness of the Great spirit that lives within all things. For we think that raising our consciousness and evolving our soul only benefits self, but truly it raises the consciousness of all life and brings us one step closer for all to live in love, peace and harmony. So learn and accept everything that comes to meet you on your path and you will become enlightened and that will benefit all. Ekosi.” Joseph White Eagle 🦅🌎❤️

“Women are the Keepers of Waters. We carry the sacred water to ceremonies and act on its behalf. Women have a natural bond with water, because we are both life bearers. We carry our babies in internal ponds and they come forth into the world on a wave of water. It is our responsibility to safeguard the water for all our relations. Being a good mother includes the caretaking of water.” - Robin Wall Kimmerer
With the eclipse and full moon energy it’s a powerful time for a tarot reading to access our deeper truths. Here the message is clear -in order to realize happiness that touches all of the levels of being we need to liberate ourselves from any blocks and obstacles so we may move into new directions that are energizing. This means we need to take the tail of any fears we might be experiencing and find deep comfort with who we are. The moon suggests we clear karma from relationships so we no longer abandon ourselves out of any sort of duty. This is the path of the authentic self. In a world where bringing your female power forward is met with questioning and sometimes oppression, it becomes even more important to choose and commit to evolution and express our full power. Shine on despite any obstacles and feel the joy that comes with living from your authentic self. ⚡️❤️🦅
Students work in progress, You are the Medicine. Healing the split between inside seeing and outside seeing. Returning to the fresh experience of those first marks when we were young and creating for the first time. The innocence reclaimed and the joy of being a creator, which we all are.
“Jane, I wanted to let you know that I feel like a different person. Something lifted off of me (it must have been some sort of a foreign energy) and I’m sooooo grateful for your healing presence and touch. I’m sleeping better too. I would love to see you again for reiki and clearing.” M A recent testimonial from a client who didn’t feel like herself. She walked in my office triggered and anxious. Her thoughts were looping over and over again and they were hopeless thoughts. We created an intention together and called in sacred support. The energy began to move and she returned more fully into her body. The trauma that had been triggered was just on the service and ready to uncoil. With love we let it go and grounded her back to gratitude and present moment awareness. This is the kind of somatic presencing work I teach and offer. It’s a blending of listening, intuition, intention, prayer, energy work and shamanic restoration.
A scientifically controlled study conducted by German researchers at the University of Kassel has shown that while the chest area of an average person emits only 20 photons of light per second, someone who meditates on their heart center and sends love and light to others emits an amazing 100,000 photons per second.
That is 5000 times more than the average human being. Numerous studies have also shown that when these photons are infused with loving and healing intent, their frequency and vibration increases to the point where they can literally change matter, heal disease, and transform negative events.
"After ten minutes of meditating on compassion, on kindness for others, and you will see its effects all day. That’s the way to maintain a calm and joyous mind.”
From The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness
in a Changing World" by the Dalai Lama

Herbal Ways🌱🌱🌱 what a lovely day to pick herbs and kale from the garden. With the new moon in Scorpio tomorrow I think I’ll give myself a clearing bath of rosemary, sage, rue, lavender and mugwort. Oh and some chocolate mint tea. Life is pleasure when we take care of ourselves through each little death moment. Rituals and herbal ways will be included in next years Shamanic program which begins in January. I’m calling forward women who want to go deep, transform the ego, and learn to be of service to the earth and all our relations. Link in profile for more information about the Luminous Path in person one year program.

November is American Indian Heritage Month.
Make It Main Street Movies presents Gather at 5:00PM and 6:30PM at the Odd Fellows Hall, followed by a lively panel discussion.
Gather is an intimate portrait of the growing movement amongst Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political and cultural identities through food sovereignty while battling the trauma of centuries of genocide.
Gather follows Nephi Craig, a chef from the White Mountain Apache Nation (Arizona), opening an indigenous café as a nutritional recovery clinic; Elsie Dubray, a young scientist from the Cheyenne River Sioux Nation (South Dakota), conducting landmark studies on bison; and the Ancestral Guard, a group of environmental activists from the Yurok Nation (Northern California), trying to save the Klamath river.

Works in Progress- You are the Medicine -“I wish I could show you,
when you are lonely or in darkness,
the Astonishing Light of your own Being.
All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,
“You owe me.”
One regret dear world, that I am determined not to have
when I am lying on my deathbed is that I did not kiss you enough.
With a love like that
It lights the whole sky
This place where you are right now, God circled on a map for you.
Don’t surrender your loneliness so quickly
Let it cut more deep
Let it ferment and season you
As few human
Or even divine ingredients can
Something missing in my heart tonight
Has made my eyes so soft
My need of God
Scorpio Season 🦂
“May the process of release and letting go make room for your greatest victory yet.
In a world of "phony and smokescreens" may you trust your most powerful asset.
This asset is your heart's intuitive guidance.
May you never run from pain + trauma no matter how difficult it may be to confront.
There is gold and magic within those experiences that will one day comfort and teach future generations.
Within this upcoming Scorpio season, may the call of authenticity ring louder than the fluff of our modern day world.
Integrity, depth and transparency can only be hidden for so long.
May you be your own best friend in a world of lost souls often hiding their true colors.
You are stronger than you know.
You are a warrior of immense strength and power.
You are a master of both the light and the dark.
May the miraculous be witnessed in everything you do.
You are safe and you are loved."
- Astromomma, 2021
