i’ve been taking this blend this summer for seasonal allergies + cat allergies and it’s been helpful. i’ve also heard from some people with chronic allergies that this blend has been 🔥. it’s got all the good stuff: nettle, reishi, red clover, mullein (and contains vodka). . it’s an anti-inflammatory blend that relieves symptoms of itchy, watery eyes, sneezing and runny nose and also has a trillion nutrients: Vitamin A, various B Vitamins (including B-1, B-2, B-3, and B-5), Vitamin C, amino acids, calcium, fatty acids, folic acid, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and potassium. reishi contains steroid-like anti-inflammatory compounds that inhibit inflammation and histamine and is also so soothing to the nervous system and with longterm use, people notice an overall more peaceful feeling. mullein helps soothe raw and scratchy throats. overall this blend truly can help ease seasonal and animal allergies alike. . link in profile and lots of other 👌🏻✌🏻🙏🏻 remedies in the shop. ❤️

Blue Elder and Oregon Grape. I wrote a plant profile last month on Elderberry- with an overview of three species found across Turtle Island and beyond. I didn’t just write about Elder medicine, but Elder as seen through the lens of ecology, history, ethnobotany, and folklore, too. You can find the article on my blog, linked in my profile.

I’ve always been pretty lousy at tree identification because for some reason bark patterns don’t stick in my memory the same way leaf patterns do, but ever since I moved to the west coast I’ve thought of Douglas firs as my friendly gay uncle Dougs, wearing chunky cable-knit sweaters, and that really works for me #gayhomosexual #queerherbalist #westcoast

“Poison, like witch, is a word burdened with problematic associations. In vulgar parlance it has come to indicate an agent of destruction, be it of spirit, mind or body whose inevitable bequests are wounding and death. However ancient definitions often implied a poison’s healing nature as well as it’s capacity for harm. The Latin veneficium can be interpreted as drug, poison, or magic; the old Greek pharmakon could equally indicate a poison or a cure. … Self-poisoning for the attainment of mystical knowledge, ecstasy, and congress with the spirits we call ‘The Poison Path’. “— Daniel A. Shulke’s “Veneficium: Magic, Witchcraft And the Poison Path” . where you can often find me. sniffing datura and then tasting that single drop of sweetness from the night before. always walking that poison path.

catching up on orders all morning after a little trip & coming home to find out our house & land we’re under attack by the state. they threatened repossession of this place that my family has been for almost 15 years that sits on treaty land. in just over 24 hours we raised the money we needed to keep it in our hands. we cannot thank everyone who shared info, donated $, sent up smoke & sent encouraging words. fuck the state & property tax. no one owns anything. this is OJIBWE LAND FOREVER ✊🏽🖤 (orders will be mailed out today! miigwetch for your patience.) . . . . . . . . . #queerherbalist #anishinaabe #decolonizeyourmedicine #ftp #propertyistheft 🙃

i’m so happy to share that @healhaus will now be stocking Corpus Ritual herbal remedies! there are a bunch of tinctures and elixirs and my smoke blend. when i started working with plants 6 years ago, i was really shy about it. good thing is that plants are the magic makers and i’m just their channel so i got over it and now i love seeing them in the world, knowing they will be picked up by people who need their support. . as a small batch maker and because every step i do on my own and by hand, i’m particular about where these friends live. i can’t imagine a better home than HealHaus! from the second you open the door, it feels so good to be there. go check em out! 🙏🏻🌱❤️

We love and support this magic! Thank you for sharing your medicine @manashkiikiiwe From @manashkiikiiwe - after starting my etsy page & having sweet friends share my shop i’ve gotten a lot of followers on @ndnslang so i wanted to create an account more focused on my mashkiikii making to show more of my process & share teachings. stocked up on nettles & red clover. a lot of ppl have said the nettles tincture has helped their joint pains. additionally, it’s also high in iron, calcium, potassium and a ton of vitamins! this makes it good for ppl with debilitating periods & pregnant ppl. red clover is said to be a cancer preventative so when it popped up all over my yard this summer i took it as a sign that someone needed it. it’s also said to help pms & menopause symptoms - bloating, irritability, hot flashes etc. also some rad posters made by rad artists. #nodapl #acab #anishinaabe #herbalmedicine #queerherbalist #qtpoc #decoloizeyourmedicine

Processing 🌱Plantain🌱 for herb infused oil! Plantain is pretty easy to find, she grows mostly everywhere and in a variety of sizes. She likes yards, road sides, and hiking trails. Since she’s a wound healer, I have a theory that she also heals the skin of the earth by growing in paths that we walk or drive regularly. First gather, then wash, then pull out the less healthy leaves, light dehydration (just enough to pull out moisture), then cut, grind, or chop them into smaller pieces. They then go into a jar and you can fill with any oil you please! In 2-3 weeks of solar infusion you will have plantain oil! Great for salves, especially ones that promote wound healing! She is also often used in poultice form- meaning if you have a cut or a sting on the trail, you can pull her up, chew her up, and stick the wad on the wound. (Hawai’i people: be very aware of slugs!) 💚 #mothertreemedicinals #herbalmedicine #herbalist #queerherbalist #herb #herbs #plantain #herbinfusedoil #infusedoil #process #dehydrator #woundhealing #topicalmedicine #wildgather #plantlove #plantpeople

I have made the sweetest zine with my dear friend @lilyoftheherbs A lot of deliberation and consideration went into this tiny pocket full of loving and caring information about interacting with our herbal allies and accomplices. We are so excited to share this with the world as a work conveying our passion for herbalist community, nourishment and healing. It contains practical and simple information about how we can interact with folk herbal traditions from our wise older people. There are many delightful botanical illustrations by myself and Lily ~ If you would like to purchase a copy pm me, its $7 plus postage ((or)) no postage if you want to pop by and have a herbal cuppa and chat about how plants can be our friends and allies :) #folkherbalism #nourishingtraditions #herbalremedies #oldwivestales #queerherbalist #forager

people have been DMing me about where they can pickup Corpus Ritual herbal remedies. if you want to see everything i currently have— tinctures, elixirs, a smoke blend, teas & soon, salves again, my website is the best place! link ➡️ profile. . you can also find a lot of them in Brooklyn at @brooklynopenacupuncture & @loveisjuniper! also going to be announcing a couple new shops and healing spaces this summer (including one this week!) i’m super excited about this & i’m really into a slow, small & steady build. . everything i make is small batch using herbs i ethically harvest, small organic farms like @fosterfarmbotanicals & @zackwoodsherbfarm, & sweet trades with other herbalists & growers. i like keeping it small & do everything on my own. it is a joyful labor of love this way, with my hands on every step, so they will only be in a few places for now. . if you’re a newbie to herbs or are wanting additional support, i offer sliding scale consultations! the info is on my website as well & the cost includes the remedies & shipping! it’s a good deal & you get close attention! if you’re alcohol-free a consultation is also a good idea because i can make you custom tea blends & other things! . i also love offering & donating remedies in service of social justice fundraisers & movement work so don’t hesitate to email me with opportunities. if i can accommodate & have enough stock on hand for the request, i totally will! i’ve been so thrilled to support local efforts in Puerto Rico, Black Lives Matter, immigration work, supports for work at the border, queer & trans liberation work & more! keep em coming because community support & community medicine & healing need to be accessible to all of us. being a part of movement work in this way is really important to me & underpins my work with plants. . also i offer gift cards if you want to get something sweet for a dear one! on the website too. ✌🏻🌱 . & goddamn who doesn’t need a big hug from Trauma Heart Heal right about now? i love love love working with plants & i’m so grateful i get to share them with people. thank you! . also these beautiful labels & photos are by my bro Jon Patterson!

if i can’t be in the field of Vermont elderflowers (i’m back in Brooklyn), at least i can spend the day bottling up and shipping all the plant friends for orders! . also lately a lot of herb first timers have been trying my remedies. the feedback has been “oh shit! it helped so much!” which makes me really happy. plants are so supportive if we let them and we trust them and ourselves. . also tonight is Breathwork for Grief @loveisjuniper! (and i’ll be bringing them a reorder of herbal remedies too!) it’s 7-9pm in Brooklyn and there are a few spots left. link as always in profile or theirs!

when i first started working with (and then making) herbal remedies 6 years ago, they changed my life. i was managing some difficult physical and emotional health things (hi kidney stones for a month with no painkillers (ok, a couple expired ones from a generous and dear friend), chronic exhaustion, a deep and ongoing depression, anxiety veering on agoraphobia at times, drinking way more than what was good for me, reeling from the violences of my childhood and adulthood, didn’t have health insurance (hence no doctor visit or medications), was in pain and needed support. working with plants allowed me to connect to them and myself and take my healing into my own hands a little. i grew up with a mother and grandmother and grandfather deeply connected to plants. from a very young age i was allowed to plant my own garden and i remember walking through theirs throughout my childhood. they are such amazing teachers and i’m very glad i started listening again. . i’m super excited to connect people to plants. i have a ton of herbal remedies up on my website, offer sliding scale consultations for people who want a little more guidance, and also make custom flower essence blends for people wanting some intuitive energetic support. my work is largely dedicated to supporting people moving through and with trauma, to supporting mental health and wellness, to supporting queer & trans people with non-binaristic views on plant bodies or human bodies, to deeply witnessing the impact of oppression on so many people and connecting the personal and collective, and more. it’s all up on my website so take a peek if you’re being called to invite more plants into your life! . and thanks @powerfemmetarot for this beautiful photo! . also heeeeeyyyyyy new labels and so many thanks to my brother Jon Patterson! . #plants #herbs #herbalmedicine #plantmedicine #herbalist #queerherbalist #botanicalmedicine #trauma #queer #lgbtq #trans #nonbinary #chronichealthissues #depression #anxiety #grief

collecting some reishi for drying to add to soups and for making a double extraction to add to my new blend oh! be joyful and just to have on hand as a single remedy. . reishi is a really amazing mushroom to use long term. its something i added to my daily herbs about 5 months ago and i’m loving it. it’s neuroprotective, has anti-cancer agents, helps the liver regenerate, supports movement through and with depression and anxiety and is really good for boosting the immune system. i’m going to slice it up and tincture it and then after 6 weeks will do a second extraction step. . #reishi #reishimushroom #mushroom #herbs #herbalmedicine #herbalist #queerherbalist #foraging

One of my hobbies is going for walks and admiring + saying hi to plants I find. I saw bright orange fruits in the distance that caught my attention and as I got closer, I realized it was a passionflower vine. Anyone familiar with the bright orange passion fruits? That was my first time seeing that variety. Simple moments like this keep me going in this chaotic world. Seems like everyday we wake up to another injustice. Meanwhile the flowers are blooming.

this baby is a new blend and i made it this spring when i was needing a heart and nervous system restorative. i blended it when i was a couple months into a new relationship and was ( still am) nursing old attachment and loss of a previous relationship wounds. i wanted to be more fully present to the sweetness and ease and actual joy (still a new thing for me) that was showing up in my life as well as be more present to my self as i stepped into doing even more group work with grief. . it’s a blend of mimosa and reishi tinctures (double extraction of reishi) with flower essences of datura, ghost pipe, and chicory and a gem essence of carnelian. and vodka. . i gathered the mimosa last summer when i was moving through some deep underworld times, deep deep grief and loss. it showed up exactly when i needed it and i cried so much, from sadness but also joy in the finding. mimosa has been such a powerful guide for returning to joy and as an anchor for the heart and spirit. combined with reishi, which is basically just good for literally every system and also supports us returning to our own spirit, i added some flower and gem essences supportive of standing at the edges of pain (ghost pipe), for underworld traveling and breaking old harmful patterns (datura), letting go of control of others and the love they can/ can’t give us as we learn to give love to ourselves (chicory), and welcoming a connection to our own energy (carnelian). . it’s a sweet and strong and confident blend that helps us return to ourselves and helps us return to the light above ground. it’s also so good for these times of deep grief and revolution, for finding pockets of joy where we can so that we can feel energized to continue resisting and rebuilding. . (name is also inspired by/ borrowed from an album my girlfriends band—The Toothaches— put out and that i was listening to so i gotta give credit where it’s due.) . it’s up on the website! link in profile. also mimosa is peeking out from underneath!

I think I first became interested in growing herbs because @kaikrupa is an amazing, intuitive, creative chef, and I loved (and still love!) the idea of being able to grow things for them to utilize in the kitchen. Also, my parents are hippies and I would often get “herb drops” as a remedy to a cold or other ailments as a first response. It’s only been in the last several years that I’ve really come to find a passion for growing herbs of all sorts - culinary & medicinal, and am slowly learning how to use them. There are a couple fantastic queer herbalists I follow on IG - @catalystcommunityherbals & @ergifarmsandapothecary that have been very inspiring. And I also recently started participating in an intuitive plant medicine course offered by @onewillow_apothecaries, who btw is a great ally who openly encourages conversations about cultural appropriation and is aware of pronouns within the lgbtqai+ community. 🌻🌱✨ Last December the Thomas Fire broke out right across the valley from us (California’s largest recorded wildfire), and we watched it creep across the mountains every day and night, feeling utterly helpless. I was worried about some family and friends who were in the thick of it getting smoke damage to their lungs, had read about horehound being really beneficial to lung health, so I decided to make a tea for them, since we have horehound growing wild. I consulted on the mix with @catalystcommunityherbals , and quickly dried the appropriate herbs in the hot dry winds that were fueling the fire. It was the first time I felt like I could do something helpful/useful in those overwhelmingly stressful days/weeks. 😔🌿🍵. The last pic is the resulting tea recipe. I’ll give descriptions of the other pics in comments. Thanks for reading another long post.

got to work with monarda (also known as bee balm) last week. i’ve been trading plants and remedies with @arascalrelish this spring (which is kind of the best thing) and when these were left on my front porch, i shrieked when i opened the bag. so bright and beautiful and also sturdy and warm. i mean look at that incredible head of flowers! it also smelled unbelievable, spicy and strong. anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and a nervine, it’s supportive of so many different imbalances. it can soothe just about any kind of upset stomach, offer relief from colds and flus by treating the throat and congestion. also so good for yeast infections, menstrual cramps and UTIs. . after letting them dry out a little, i tinctured some and then let the rest dry further so i could make an oil infusion (for a cramp salve) and then used the remaining dried flowers for a tea that i’ll make for infections for the winter months. it might have been midnight, after a long day, but it felt so sweet to have my hands in these stunning flowers. plants always ground me. . #herbs #herbalmedicine #plantmedicine #herbalist #queerherbalist #monarda #beebalm

i’ve been taking my Trauma Heart Heal elixir for years. sometimes daily for months other times for a couple days or just in moments of acute grief and heartache when my chest feels tight and my breath restricted. with physically and emotionally heart supportive plants like rose, hawthorn and motherwort, the remedy is cooling and is sweetened with raw organic honey. when i can feel the grief pounding in my chest a dropper or two brings a little ease. for me, the care of plants are touchstones— a way to touch down into whatever is moving through me. and for when my rage feels huge and i can’t quite pinpoint it (or maybe there are endless obvious reasons) i remember these lines from Anne Carson: "Why does tragedy exist? Because you are full of rage. Why are you full of rage? Because you are full of grief." . this remedy is for the times of rage and the times of grief. . elixir with rose, hawthorn, motherwort, carnelian and rose quartz gem essences, raw organic honey & brandy

they’re here! after years of considering it and then months working on it, new Corpus Ritual remedies labels are here! my old labels were with me for the last 6 years and it was time for something new! we were going for replicating soil levels. 🌱 the second i opened up the delivery i breathed a huge sigh of relief cause i know these are going to make it all so much easier! there is so much enraging and heartbreaking news just truly everyday and i hope these bring a little 🌞. diving into healing work has truly kept my head above water. . and not only are the labels new, there are two new remedies: Aller Ease & Oh! Be Joyful! i’ll be introducing them more in depth soon. and i also finally got my other ones up on the website that i’ve been behind on (some descriptions coming soon). you can see them all (and pick some up for summer) in the shop. also i will be listing a few tea blends on the website as well! (soon). . link to pick some up in my profile. . it was truly a family affair and i couldn’t have done this without their support. im beyond beyond grateful for my brother & designer Jon Patterson for all of his extensive labor on these (and to his wife and designer @boki_panchalee who i know offered smart creative feedback) and so much appreciation for my mom and her husband Ken for helping by believing in me and this work and helping me invest in these labels. it is amazing and also so much work (and money!) to be in biz for yourself but i needed help and so i asked (getting over my “i can do it all on my own” lifelong struggles) and i’m so grateful they said yes. truly game changing and i’m just 😭😭😭. labels printed in bulk means i have so much more time for medicine making and all of the other things i’m doing week to week. . ahhhhh! i’m feeling 🙏🏻😍🕸🌞🌱🧚🏻‍♂️🎉✌🏻🔥 . #herbs #herbalremedies #herbalmedicine #plants #plantmedicine #botanicalmedicine #queerherbalist #herbalist #herbalism #smallbatch #queermaker #plantaheal #plantallies #plantwisdom #urbanherbalist #cityherbalist #traumawork #griefwork #healingwork

in my practice i am always weaving together breath, plants and words and this past weekend i got to dive deep into plant medicine at @herbstalk. plants, both psychedelic and not, have truly been my greatest teachers and i think i feel the most happy, connected, most myself and alive in their care. they quite entirely brought me back to life. . as a sliding scale practitioner, i can’t always financially swing the big herb conferences that require me to travel across the country or something. but this one is one of my favorite herb conferences because i can drive to it, because they balance old school facilitators and herbalists with newer ones, because the workshops range widely, and because at $40 for the whole weekend of workshops, it feels way more financially accessible. (tho i did pay a little extra for an herbal safely intensive). for so many reasons this conference is a gift. sure of course, not perfect, but a gift nonetheless. . i got to brush up on my 6 years of herbal studies and revisit some of my favorite plants while partaking in so many workshops including ones about head & brain trauma, practitioner-grade essential oils & aromatherapy, herbal safety & drug interactions, herbs & the enneagram, poison medicine plants (where my heart is), and pulse diagnosis & herbal formulation. . i’m building up my Brooklyn fire escape garden (after squirrels destroyed it a couple years ago) and got skullcap, calendula, tobacco, nettle, valerian, and white sage plants from local growers and also got some dried herbs from a small farm. it feels good to be rooting (lol) back down into plants as we enter the summer months. . .

i got the proofs for my new Corpus Ritual herbal remedy labels, designed so generously by my brother Jon Patterson, last night and i’m really in love and freaking out a little cause it’s been a long and cool process coming to make this shift and just want to share them immediately but i will show some restraint and instead share the medicine i made while i was away. . i got to hang with so many old and new friends, made some tinctures, vinegars and flower essences (and also sat in deep conversation with Jack in the Pulpit and was guided to make an incredible essence in a new to me way which i’ll talk about soon! none harmed or picked!) the labels are on their way and i can’t wait to share them with you. AND i’m going to be launching two new blends: one for allergies and lungs and one for welcoming joy into our full bodies. more soon! so grateful for this 6 year process with plants that i’ve been on. . #herbs #herbalremedies #herbalmedicine #plants #plantmedicine #queerherbalist #deeplistening #plantsarehealers #plantsareallies

lil peek into my brain. in the woods having no chill at all: day 5. wall to do list. all the current plans and future dreams. ive come up to these woods a couple times a year the last three years or so. it’s land that many women have come to before me, to drop into themselves & their creative work. i’ve been steadily dedicating myself to building a sliding scale healing practice for about 5 years or so but it wasn’t until the last 18 months that i was like “ok. this is it. this is my work & it’s my focus” & i cleared out things to make room for it including jobs that were paying me. it’s hard work for sure. sure, there are sliding scale practitioners out there but not a whole ton. it can be financially unstable work but what my heart and soul get is worth a hell of a lot more than money. worth & value come through many channels, not just financial. under capitalism, that’s hard to remember. we’re so used to thinking that something that is the MOST EXPENSIVE is the most valuable. (spoiler alert: it’s not.) . THAT SAID it occurred to me over the winter that i had no plan or map for remaining in this work & for growing it even bigger. between trauma-focused somatic writing workshops to breathwork 1:1 & groups to supporting people in herbal medicine and with remedies, there’s no shortage of work on my plate & i’m lucky to be plugged into communities that are aligned with my values and the integrity of the work i want to offer. but there is a shortage of time for dreaming and strategizing. & sometimes a shortage of other resources like a steady income. i’m so used to just surviving that i don’t even think i know what thriving feels like. but i want to & i’m learning. and i refuse to compromise my integrity. so i’m here dreaming my business real. for an anti-capitalist witch, i push back on the idea of a business pretty hard but when it’s filled up with all this magic & love, i think maybe it’s gonna be ok. 👌🏻 . also who are your favorite sliding scale practitioners? or ones working to reimagine what healing that is connected to social change and justice work can look like under capitalism’s oppressive grip? i’m working on a list for my website.

pinprimrose

Here's a picture of a dandelion and a story about primroses. I got in a weird situation here on Instagram about two weeks ago. When I commented on a post by someone who had been posting pictures of primrose flowers and their roots to be careful as this is a declining species on the European continent, and nearly extinct where it used to be a common species, this person freaked out and took it personal and what not. Anyway, I got lots to think about because of the whole thing, and there are some things I'd like to share here, because I think it's important for all of us plant lovers. One of the things this person said is that they believed that everyone should take their own responsibility when it comes to harvesting plants. Well... Yes and it's complicated in my opinion. Totally yes when it comes to ingesting plants that might be toxic, no one else can take the responsibility for what you put in your mouth than you (especially in the context of social media), so do your research before tasting or eating plants that you don't know. My botany professor used to say, all plants are edible, not all of them are enjoyable, and some you'll only eat once. A good thing to keep in mind! When it comes to the sustainable harvesting of plants in their natural environment the situation is a bit more complicated, and I believe this statement was used as an excuse to not take their responsibility in encouraging people to harvest declining species without further explanation. With the primroses for example, there is the problem of 'local abundance'. This means that they might be very abundant in one place, but their general distribution in a region might be fragmented. So you might arrive at this beautiful woodland that seems to be filled with primroses, so it's ok to harvest right? Well, maybe, and maybe not, that really depends on the big picture of the species in the region. Maybe only a short distance away from this woodland the species is suffering because of intensive agriculture, and if that's the case, this big population can serve as a source of pollen (and genes) for those smaller populations and then it can really use all of the flowers and plants it has. ⬇

🌱🌕🌙💧My first elixir, featuring a new yarrow transplant keeping it company in the Porch House tiny kitchen! #newfriends Thanks @corpusritual for explaining the elixir making process ❤ . . Real talk for a second. I have monthly pain that does not respond to painkillers anymore. I can take prescription Doses and not feel any change. Often, I miss at least one night of sleep and several days of work completely. I'm working on longer-term management with health care providers, but meanwhile, I have learned so much by collaborating with the herbs I grow in my garden. It feels different and empowering to me to grow them myself and Tinker with kitchen witch potions, rather then having someone else just tell me what to take. Proactive, creative, powerful, looped in. Also, these herbs work for me. They lessen my pain sometimes, even when over-the-counter painkillers do nothing. . I don't think chronic pain becomes somehow Justified or "worth it" because it led to learning, and that can be a really dangerous narrative to throw at people with chronic pain or illness. I'm not grateful for the pain. I'm actually pretty Furious about the pain. I AM grateful for the plant learning, and for the self healing empowerment. In the face of pain that literally renders my body immobilized on the floor, having my power back in this way is a big deal. #diyhealing . The thing about gratitude is that it's not approval of the circumstances that led to feeling grateful. It is, for me, a non-linear, non transactional experience. Both / and. I am simultaneously not grateful for encounters with chronic pain and illness, with disempowering/traumatizing Medical Systems and providers, and fierce and grateful for the knowledge, collaboration, and learning with seeds, plants, soil. Thank you to the plants, the teachers, the farmers, the books, the friends and the woods walks, that dig into this and help me learn how to be powerful and creative, even when I'm in debilitating pain. ❤ #skillshare #learningfromtheland .

“our awakening should not be a shield from the world. it needs to be connected to liberation for all people.”— Jessica Dibbs, spiritual teacher & healer . i recently had a serendipitous meeting with a woman who has been doing Breathwork with others for 30 years and studied Breathwork and spiritual work with Jessica Dibbs for 10 years. it’s a different lineage and community than what i was trained in but there are also a lot of similarities. yesterday she invited me, as her guest, to her group workshop and it was 4.5 hours of revitalizing breathing and sharing. i felt so lucky to be learning from people who have been engaged physically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually in breathing practices for so long. a lot came up for me, illumination of the ways i care for other people (big! accessibly! a desire to be available! with a deep understanding and training in working with people through trauma and violence!) and the ways i receive care from others (i struggle a lot/ deep ingrained “must take care of myself” tapes runnin)... the schism between what i believe others deserve and what i believe i deserve. i’m still so very deep in making changes in how i show up for myself and how i allow people to show up for me, like so many of us. . it also got me thinking more about the big expansive web of love and care that is running through us and around us, whether we feel it or not. part of the reason i offer sliding scale is in deep reverence to all of the practitioners who have offered me sliding scale and low cost and sometimes free care. from acupuncture to writing workshops to somatic therapy to psychedelic integration and therapeutic work to sound healing to herbs to medicine work to massage and more, literally, almost every practitioner i have worked with has worked with me to make sure their work was accessible to me and others. it’s a huge gift and this work has a long history and i’m grateful to practitioners who know that financially accessible care is liberatory, revolutionary and quite often, leads to the people seeking care having more capacity to offer care to others. it helps remake the world for sure. and it’s certainly kept me alive. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
