mother - writer - maker - lover - birthworker
Hello and Welcome!
I am emerging from a deep portal phase.
I had wandered and have again been found.
I am a woman of forever shifting spaces.
I am remembering. I am refining. I am reclaiming.
I am a woman; becoming.
I am focused on honoring God, motherhood, writing, creative expression, making, root-work, womb healing, birth+postpartum recovery, overcoming trauma, & natural living.
I believe we are all relations on this earth and that we must be good stewards that honor one another, the animals and the land. Sustainability and a return to nature are incredibly important to me. I believe that deeply rooting into our Earth Mother is intrinsic to our collective remembering as a society.
It is my belief that our intuition and the idea of our 'higher selves' is us in communion with God and that as we nurture our relationship with our creator, His voice speaks wisdom into us. I feel called to help those Remember they are deeply loved by God and that their life can and will be transformed by His grace. The study of Nondual Śaiva Tantra (NŚT) & ‘The 5 Layers of Self' assisted me in bringing my spirituality down into my body, an alchemical marriage between soul and body. Breathwork unlocked much of my personal remembering and is a big part of my prayer and communion with God. There is so much to be revealed to us when we enter into our own personal relationship with The Creator. I feel called to walk alongside those who seek Him.
I am a trained birth doula (Rising Sun Doula Services), shakti queen & jade egg practitioner, as well as a ceremonial cacao facilitator. Most of my doula-work centers around coaching and postpartum recovery through workshops that encourage a recentering into the body, heart, and mind of the new mother, as well as reclaiming sovereignty over their bodies and pleasure centers. In Summer 2020 I am training to become a Childbirth Educator.
There's so much to learn and explore. So much good in the world and love to be cultivated. I plan to learn and write about as much of it as I can. I am a published writer and poet, and the author of ATOMS & EVERS (dancing girl press, 2017).
I also enjoy painting, making jewelry and other goods, and experimenting and creating with herbs, oils, salts, and other natural remedies. I run a small Etsy shop with my partner, Adam that I update on occasion.
We live on 5 acres with our 4 children, 3 cats, and 9 chickens. We have been learning permaculture practices and are novice gardeners. Running our household and being an attentive, present parent takes precedence in my life. This is my number one mission: to raise these children to love God, love people, and to honor the Earth. Our schedule is busy and when one gets sick, they often all get sick. Sometimes, I will go very quiet because mothering has commanded all my attention for the moment.
Thank you for visiting.
