Creating culture and community has been a cornerstone of who I am for as long as I can remember. Even as a young person, I was bringing people together. From friend groups to dabbling in match making. I have felt a spark when bringing amazing people together. And I almost always see the amazement in every person I meet.
Now the past couple of years have rocked us all in different ways. And while we were forced to separate for some time, it only solidified my knowing for more togetherness and community. I spend a lot of time thinking about how we can come together in healing and special ways.
I place a lot of care to ethical and privacy guidelines to make sure your information is private with me. And I will always continue to keep your sharing with me in confidence. With that, how can we begin to gather together?
This may seem like a radical concept but I believe we discover our self in the act of gathering together and exploring by way of a guide. Over the next several months, you’ll see some new changes as I begin to offer ways to gather. I’ve been training as a facilitator to bring people together. And it’s been transformational for myself as well.
For now, I want to start by co-creating our space. Yes-the room I currently use to create a healing massage space is my room. But it’s OUR space. How do we make it more of OURS and less of MINE?
You can create change in the space. Nature and intentional energy can be a cornerstone of healing.
Introducing my Adopt-a-plant program. Here’s how it works:
- Bring in a plant that can hang or trail. OR Send Venmo with $1-$20 with the note Plant Curtain. Some ideas for plants can be found here.
- You will be honored in the plant wall/curtain I’m creating over the large window.
- I will tend to the plants and nurture and care for them
- And you will also become part of each persons healing session through the plant curtain.
Yes, I could go purchase all of the plants to make this vision a reality, but thats not the point. The point is that we are co-creating this space together. Even if you don’t come in anymore, moved away, or can’t come in for whatever reason, you will have a space in this healing room and your love and attention will be assisting others that come in the space.
Things I’ve heard this week:
“When I’m cooking my kids dinner, I think about how all of my friends are in their homes cooking their kids dinner and I ask myself, ‘why aren’t we doing this more together’ to lighten the load?”
Things I’ve said this week:
“Postpartum can be up to 7 years (or more). Anyone who has experienced a miscarriage, an abortion, or the birth of a live baby should be nourished with a postpartum period. And the possibility for repair is always possible.”
