If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve probably heard about my latest pet project: I’m currently collecting donations from herbalists to create care packages for incoming students of the Herbal Freedom School. This little act has reignited my belief in the importance of mutual aid and filled my heart with joy as I realize how many folks are committed to building a world based on care and support.
I’ve been doing a lot of work around releasing sexual shame lately. While I’ve always been a sex-positive person, I’d never realized how much my relationship with my sexuality is tied up with feelings of shame. And so I’ve been in practice of deep womb work over the past few weeks, learning to let go of both my own + inherited traumas.
Just over a year ago, I landed my dream job as a digital marketing coordinator at a university. It’s in a field completely unrelated to what I studied and doing something completely different than what I spent my first 10 years of work-life learning. But after spending years in jobs that left me feeling unhappy and unsatisfied, I knew I needed to make a career change.
Even though it was incredibly scary, I took a leap of faith and I’m so glad I did! Here’s how I made a complete career change at 30.
Homemade skincare was my first foray into plant magic. There’s something really special about assessing your skin and then coming up with a formula that you’ve created to address your specific needs. Since store-bought cleansers tend to be full of harsh ingredients that end up irritating my skin, I’ve found that making my own cleansers is an effective and cost-efficient solution.
Until recently, I’d never been drawn to crystals. While I am obviously a New Age-y hippie, something about the way that people talk about crystals makes me want to roll my eyes. But recently I’ve found myself drawn to them and I decided I wanted to add a few to my altar.
