Artist. Visionary. Oracle.

I am a hot blue flame in the darkness that wanted to be born. I am a visionary. A multiplicity of creative play. I am an oracle devoted to channeling and writing the words that build bridges of coherence. I am a way finder. I am the rock and I am the water that moves around the rock. That's me - soul level. I am also a poet, certified Intentional Creativity Teacher, Red Thread Circle Guide, host of the I'll Have What She's Having Podcast, W(Rite) to Heal workshop facilitator, painter, musician, and Conscious Disrupter. I live my life in reverence and service of the Sacred, and for me the sacred is that which pertains to honoring and sustaining Life. May you find inspiration, healing threads, and a sense of belonging here.

all my colours, fully expressed...

"Existence is to me, a spiritual and embodied paradox. We are flesh, blood, and matter. And we are metaphysical something-ness. And no matter which way you flip that coin around and around, the human side of the equation is the one that is brought to bear in the form of sensation. We are in a BODY, you see. One that feels, senses, desires, runs on autopilot. I don't have it all quite figured out yet, but I recognize how being a conscious being inside of a human body with limitations, needs, cravings, compulsions, and a very sensitive ecosystem is perhaps one of the most complex navigational tasks a soul will ever be given. To be fully in this experience of life takes grit and softness. Takes paradox walking. And so much grace..."

the wetiko within

I don’t have the desire to be loud. To lead any charges. To rally or to bolster. To cheer up or to sober. I have had pain for this world and with this world in the pit of my stomach…twisting and burning…for as long as I can remember. I’ve missed a lot of parties because I couldn’t get down from the treetops – on lookout duty. And I couldn’t stop fretting as I watched the Wetiko devouring and devouring, getting closer and closer, eating our life support systems, burning sacred agreements, while we danced to the tune of ...

tracking the colonizer

What does it take to be a colonizer? 

To do the things, to cause the harms, to reap the destruction that Colonization has wrought? 

What does it take? Do you know? 

Do you feel separate from it? Do you feel it is hard to understand what could drive this dense force? 

This age-old Wetiko that continuously devours? And Devours. And Devours. 

Let’s try and track it. Find it. Look at it. 

So it will not live unconsciously inside. 

I ask again…

What does it take to be a colonizer? 

Let’s start with the dictionary definition. 

(The English dictionary definition.) 

verb

(of a country or its citizens) send a group of settlers ...
