In all that I do – including e-­courses, retreats, consultations, artwork, and my tarot decks —the Gaian Tarot and the Pentimento Tarot – I balance starry-­eyed spiritual mysticism with everyday, shoe-­leather practicality, supporting you in opening your mind to the potential of the universe while grounding you in concrete, daily practices that will better establish your connection to the earth.

30 Days of Hecate

Coming soon …

“30 Days of Hecate: A Daily Sacred Pause of Welcoming Hallowmas” begins October 24th. It’s an ecourse for those who want a daily inspirational touchstone during Hecate’s season of All Hallows, Samhain, the Days of the Dead. It is the season of Hecate in her guise of the Old One, the Crone, the Cailleach, the Grandmother, the Elder.

On the surface, it’s about beautiful photos, art, quotes, practices, and journal/photo prompts landing in your inbox every day for 30 days.

But really?

It’s about connecting more deeply with the rhythms of nature as you enter the fallow, dreaming time, follow the light of Hecate’s torches into the underworld, and honor your Beloved Dead.

Registration is open now. Only $19!

Are you interested in going on retreat with me?

I’ll be opening up registration in November for a new retreat designed for those who have not retreated with me before, “Foundational Practices of the Gaian Soul Compass” in August 2018. Sign up here for the Early Bird List!

Have you seen the Pentimento Tarot?

It’s a Major Arcana art deck I created in encaustic (beeswax) collage.

In each card of the Pentimento Tarot, we see layers of tarot lineage stretching back to the 15th century, then forward into the present day.

We see our ancestors looking back at us.  Take a look.
