December. A time of celebrating an end to darkness and a return of light. A time of bidding farewell to fall and welcome to winter. Of saying goodbye to the year that has passed and hello to the new year at the threshold.
What is it in your life that is coming to a close?
What is it in your life that is waiting to begin?
In me, an enormous shift is underway. So many "old ways" are finding their ending. So many "new ways" are seeking to come into expression. All of it is gently enveloped by the Great Mystery of Life.
I find myself quietly surrendering. No longer wishing to fight what is. Humbled by the power of life itself and the pulsating life-force within me. A fierce determination guides me to continue shining my light bright. I'm curious as to where it will all lead and who I will become.
Below are this month's announcements of closings and openings, as dictated by the changing inner tide.

Winter Solstice: Meditative Card Night
In the period between the winter solstice and spring, nature offers us an opportunity to safely spend time with the unknown. To dream. To be still. To ponder, what is it all about? What's my place in this world? What's my purpose? How do I bring my light out?
Make room for these deep inquiries with an illuminating and fun online solstice gathering. Set an intention for the season, take in the healing powers of the water element, and playfully draw on oracle cards to reveal the inner guidance for what will bring you peace this season.
Live only via Zoom
Tuesday, December 21, 6:00 -8:00pm

Celebrating Latrice D. Rogers
We are all on a path of evolution to bravely shine the light that we are into the world. One such bright light is Latrice D. Rogers.
I've had the privilege of accompanying Latrice on her journey and the great honor of writing the foreword to her debut narrative nonfiction.
Each chapter is its own story based on life lessons. Readers are invited to make connections with these lessons, to reflect within the pages of the book, and to share their connections and stories with others. It's a real self-care gift for all!
