The HEART Practice
We Are The Seers We Seek
Being a fiery perfectionist, I can quickly feel overwhelmed by irritation, stress, anger, or too much adrenaline from a close call - aka, slipping on ice or almost rear-ending someone. About 3 years ago, in my depths of mystery illnesses, I began finding comfort in putting my hands on my body and just breathing. Then, my dear friend, Jody, and I went on a hike and she shared this very practice. We put it into simple steps to create a recipe for those moments when you need to find a healing calm.
Jody began by telling me to first touch my heart, breathe, tune in, become curious and just ride my feelings. “Stick with that feeling. Don’t run away,” she said. What was so amazing to me was how I had already begun to do this intuitively - out of nowhere else to turn for relief, and here she was walking me through it. How funny to feel you’ve had the keys to intuit your own needs all along. As I listened closely to my inner voice, I followed ambiguous instructions to FEEL instead of THINK my way - or downright abandon myself - through intense emotions.

This is a season to perceive, we are the seers we seek.
In Grecian times, seers were the embodiment of divinely refined perception. Using the signs, senses, rituals, and practices, seers were highly sought members of society for their perceptive abilities. to assist in decisions that transformed early civilizations. For better and for worse. Even seers are fallible, but we do not judge ourselves for what is out of our control, we can only begin within. We look to this archetype to expand what it means to perceive.
In Kinship, We Rise
As a young woman in my 20's I stayed in relationships that weren't a fit to my inner being. Looking back i can see i was all that i needed to be safe and be fully loved and fulfilled in my life. I learnt that the most important relationship is the one to one self.
We are not afraid, we were born to do this.
We come from all walks to arrive at this intersection.
Pregnant with our becoming.
We do not fall apart, we fall together and rise.
Together we dreamt this.
Collectively, we catalyze.
