Welcome to the heart, mind, and soul of the woman. What it is to walk this world as a woman. On a mission to wake up. To feel what has been lost. To call home what has been disempowered. To remember our true nature and birthright. You will find many reflections here. Let us create from a place of truth, safety and intimate awareness of the fabric that shapes our world. Let us not close our eyes, ears, mouths, or hearts as we step into change. We have no choice rather we stay dead and untouched. Will you wake with me? Contemplate with me? Change with me? Create a better world with me? I hope you will for we are all in this together and it can't be done without you.

Because along the way, domestication happens, trauma happens and adulting certainly happens. And a...
Well it all starts right here at home, inside your own mind and body.
This painting here, is one I created one night when I decided to step into a part of myself I could not define. This image came forth. I came to call the space behind the woman “the mind sac”, for it felt like the very space so much is stored within our subconscious. The very space where we hold unaddressed trauma, beliefs, even ideas about how we think the world is supposed to be.
Then life comes along and challenges something we may not be able to see and then we find ourselves faced with pain, illness, confusion or fear. These are common signs of the next invitation. Are you going to stuff it back down inside you OR are you going to look at it and figure out what needs to change? Are you going to give yourself an opportunity to heal and release it? And in the process, possibly also release yourself from a life pattern that is no...
