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.

I hope you’ll choose to join our community today!

Please join me for “30 Days of Yule:
A Daily Sacred Pause to Welcome the Return of the Sun”

We all need a way to nourish our souls during the crazy holiday season. My ecourse “30 Days of Yule: A Daily Sacred Pause to Welcome the Return of the Sun” will help you make room in your schedule for reflection, silence, and stillness.

Every day for 30 days, you’ll find beautiful photos, art, quotes, practices, journal prompts and art/photo prompts landing in your inbox. They’ll guide you gently into becoming present and alert to the deeper, hidden messages of the festival of Winter Solstice / Yule, and all the celebrations of light that take place during this time. We’ll celebrate many Goddesses of Yuletide, like Santa Lucia, Rozhanitsa, Saule, Frau Holda, the Child of Wonder, and La Befana. We’ll note the holy-days of many cultures.

Please join me and an international circle of seekers for a daily sacred pause during Yuletide. We start December 7th.  Only $19. Join us?
