New Moon Musings, Book Release, and Retreat Announcement

1. New Moon, My Moontime, and Plants

In the red tent, the truth is known. In the red tent, where days pass like a gentle stream, as the gift of Innana courses through us, cleansing the body of last month’s death, preparing the body to receive the new month’s life, women give thanks — for repose and restoration, for the knowledge that life comes from between our legs, and that life costs blood.
— Anita Diamant, The Red Tent

New Moon and Moon time is a Sacred time. It’s a time of deep intuition and much needed self love. This time of the moon, month, and your cycle is not to be taken lightly, this is a GIFT, a gift of flowing with the stream of consciousness. Planting, creating, seeding new thoughts, and when our moon cycle is linked with the moon it makes it even more potent. Two weeks before the New Moon, start drinking and ingesting powerful plant allies - rehmannia, ho shou wu, licorice, nettle, scullcap, egyptian blue lotus, white peony, passionflower, don qaui, chaste tree berry. These are a few of my most favorite. Why?! Because they support the life force and the “Chi," a Chinese word meaning aliveness, life force, energy. or life breath (also known as Ki, Qi or Prana). The Definition of Chi: "Theories of traditional Chinese medicine assert that the body has natural patterns of qi associated with it that circulate in channels called meridians in English." During this time right before moon time and during you need as much help as possible to keep the body in a sweet state of lightness. Try walking barefoot outside, bathing under the evening sky, rising at dawn--the magic hour just before the light.  This will deeply harmonize you with the natural cycles of nature and with YOU!!!  New Moon darkness helps you to connect deeper with the immense clarity of LIGHT! Going to bed early is key to getting more in tune with your dream world as well as getting the much needed sleep that the body needs to thrive optimally. Drinking passionflower, scullcap, white peony, and blue lotus before bed will activate and amplify cosmic meditation. All of the plants, barks, and herbs I suggest also deeply nourish skin, hair, nails, and eyes. They support the radiance of beauty! I love LOVE Moontime blood. I love being on my period, because I download powerful insights for my life and I create and write the most powerful messages from Spirit. I strongly recommend talking to your SELF in the most beautiful, healthy ways, rubbing breasts, underarms, ovaries, and meridian points to show how much you honor this incredible temple you dwell in!!!! Nourishing products that are non-toxic and high vibration such as Feather Eagle Sky, taking warm baths with holy basil, frankincense, neroli, rose, violet, immortelle, mugwort, and sage( for protection), clary sage,  ylang ylang, rose geranium (for hormones), these are but a few of my favorite oils and plants that I take and lather all over my body. I have been cold plunging daily for almost a decade, and prior during my whole childhood growing up an avid nature-mover, but I rarely do during my Moon time as I like to keep cold water immersing for before and after. I strongly recommend rinsing after a hot bath or shower which is also a great way to start prepping for deeper union with this magnificent ancestral practice. The cold is excellent for medicine, centering self, breath, and for whole body amplification, tightening skin, calming inflammation in the joints, and making hair shiny!!! My new Arkana 24k Gold Face Cream is excellent for massaging into your face, neck, and chest after bathing, loaded with powerful protective plants that came to me in visions with plant teachers such as Ayahuasca. Plant medicine is deeply a part of my life practice, honestly it’s a rite of passage for teaching or sharing plants in general. This isn’t something I recommend however within many circles in the USA, because many lack the full apprenticeship with the other plant teachers that are necessary for holding a ceremony. This includes a diet of other sacred plants, isolation and fasting from everyone in the jungle with the plants you are learning from, mastering songs that the plants give you to sing, and knowing how to take care of others during a ceremony. Ayahuasca is just one aspect that entails a whole realm of increased wisdom and linage with true masters! I am grateful for my long apprenticeship and my deeper learning that continues to take place as I travel and work directly with the Shipibo people, and with the Shaman herself, Chacruna, and the other plants that one must know!!! My husband and I are excited to share this practice with you, which is a very important aspect our lives, at the AYA Retreat in Peru this June (scroll down for details).  Blessings Love & Light, and Happy New Moon - LIFE IS A GIFT  “The plants make you sing.” All my highest love.

What is success to you?  I’ve recently taken an interest in the idea of “Dharma." Just being able to fathom some potential, cosmic order really astounds me. Though I’m not yet comfortable stating that as one of my strong beliefs, I feel success is finding your place in this life and thriving there. 

What is magic for you?  Synchronicity. When you think of someone and they call you, when you think a thought and the person next to you says it… synchronicity is everywhere. It’s like the universe telling you that you’re in line. I just love that!

What is love for you? For me, love is being present in the moment you share with another being. Not only being present, but doing so with a high vibration. So high that you raise their energy with yours. There is no better way to make someone feel understood, complete, energized, and all around good. I like to practice this in all of my close relationships. Personally, I think that’s the best part of making love… the exchange of energy.

What is your beauty/ health practice? Over the years, I’ve progressively gotten more and more choosy as to what I put on my skin. I’ve learned less is more. I used to spend so much on fancy packaging and never even looked at the ingredients (I may have looked but I sure as hell didn’t know what they were). Now, I use only natural products, down to my toothpaste. I try to keep it simple and try to be as gentle with my skin as possible. My exercise routine also keeps my skin glowing. I love to get my blood pumping. That’s when I feel most alive. I keep my routine consistent, while also mixing it up quite a bit. I do a combination of strength training, CrossFit, yoga, and various outdoor activities. I’m pretty obsessive about my workouts and place them as a top priority. I’m constantly trying to make improvements to my diet. The opportunities to improve are endless.  I try not to eat “crapfood." Sometimes I fail, but my body doesn’t have much tolerance for it at this time. I recently gave up dairy. That was a game changer. Though, breaking up with cheese was not easy. My best advice: Make sure your body is getting what it needs. If you live by that, you simply won’t have the desire for anything else. I’m serious. 

What makes your spirit glow? I have a thirst for abstract thinking and I’m introverted. I can honestly say when I’m able to express my ideas with clarity to a welcoming audience my spirit glows. It gives me a feeling of authenticity. 

How do you stay centered in the middle of chaos?  I can be kinda neurotic. Though you’d never know it unless you were someone close to me. Even then you probably wouldn’t know.  I’m highly sensitive to the energy of others and to my environment in general. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned not to give all of my energy away. I really try to stay in tune with how I am feeling. If I quickly recognize that I’m feeling depleted I can resolve it with a little down time. If I don’t catch on and the feeling persists then I may need to literally shut down for a while. During that time, I’ll typically engage is some sort of sensing activity that I find “soul-worthy." There’s not much a little nature, meditation, essential oils, and a bath can’t fix. 

If you could say one thing to the world what would you say? That’s a tough one. I guess I would say, “keep it simple." Simplicity is key. Simplicity goes along with things like honesty and authenticity. Keep it close to source. The closer you are to source, the simpler things become. 

How do you mother the world? I like the saying, “fill yourself up with so much love that it spills out to others” (I’m not sure who said it, it may have been me). I find this to be so profound! If you have ever experienced this feeling then you know how unbelievable it is. The more at peace I am and the more love that is felt, the less I am affected by the low energy of others. That’s just metaphysics, positive energy trumps negative energy. When my soul has been properly nourished I have the ability to raise the vibrations of those around me. I bring good vibes to the table. That’s how I mother the world.

What is success to you?
Being as self sustainable as possible while living within my integrity. Gathering and growing my food. Placing myself in the way of beauty every day. Celebrating small victories, like reaching the top of a peak or creating a beautiful meal or work of art for those I love. Serving in a meaningful way that expresses my unique medicine. 

What is magic for you?
The natural world is flooded with magic at every moment. When I tap into that, it's so easy to see that magic is the essence of life. It's when I'm struggling and I step outside for some clarity..and a sandhill crane flies overhead, dropping a feather at my feet. It's seeing four foxes in one week. It's noticing a leaf flicker wildly without a trace of wind. Feeling energy rush up your body when making love. Making eye contact with a coyote and feeling the oneness of that moment. 

What is love for you?
Love is the one and only absolute truth. It is the one force worth risking it all for. Love is a constant journey of opening deeper and deeper, having our shadows and light reflected back onto us. 

What is your beauty/health practice?
A strong relationship with my ecosystem is the most important thing. Eating foods and medicines I harvest from my landscape, drinking the wild water, soaking in the hot springs, absorbing the sun, sweating, playing in the mountains...incorporating every element is vital to my health. The healthier and more grounded I feel, the more beautiful I feel. Minimal, pure body products is also a must.

What makes your spirit glow?
Ahh....so much! Great sex, deep conversations, alone time in nature, animals, drawing. And one of my top favorites: LAUGHTER! I absolutely adore the sarcastic, slightly cynical, hilarious people in my life. I have a pretty raunchy sense of humor, and meeting others who feed that part of me is so nourishing. 

How do you stay centered in the middle of chaos?
I often call upon the bird of prey archetypes, specifically the red tailed hawk. To see the situation from a higher, objective perspective. To see the impermanence of it all and to trust that I am never given anything I can't handle. Or- I just freak the fuck out and feel it all so deeply in the moment that it's no longer a big deal a few hours later. Depends on the day ;)

What causes/organizations are you passionate about?
Animals. Ever since I was a little girl, I've LOVED animals. This may seem ironic, since I do support conscious hunting practices, but it all comes full circle with the protection of their ecosystems and population health and boycotting factory farming. Since moving to Montana, I've grown to deeply respect the work of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. I also love the work of Farm Sanctuary, High Caliber Horse Rescue, United Plant Savers, and (a place I volunteered for years) Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care.

If you could say one thing to the world, what would you say?
Have compassion. 

How do you mother the world?
I seek opportunities to serve in meaningful ways, and a lot of the time I find that means creating medicines from my ecosystem and giving them away to those in need. I also see the gifts freely given to me by the Earth- the ultimate mother- and give abundant thanks so that she may feel nurtured as well.

What is success to you? 
Understanding ones talents and learning how to harness them in a way that enables one to live a full life from those talents is a successful life in my opinion. 

Success has many woven threads within its web and my definition of success will continue to change as it is tied into the present of each chapter in life. If I may live my life in a sustainable way that supports my growth, my health, my relations, the Earth and enables me to create what I hold in my heart, I am a successful woman. 

On a linear level, I want a ranch in New Mexico with horses, mini horses, goats and sheep. I'd love to have a weaving and arts center to support the future generations of artists to rise. If I could spend my later years riding horses, weaving and watching sunsets everyday in the Land of Enchantment, I'd say success is mine. 

What is magic for you? 
Magic is the space between, its the way life is intended to be when our minds aren't stuck in the doorway of logic. It's the enchantment of synchronicity and the horizon of possibility if we can allow ourselves to listen and follow it. Magic has many a countenance and many a name but for me, magic sings loudest through intuition. It's the YES in life. 

What is love for you?
Love is the truth of life. Love is a phenomenon that perpetually mystifies me and fills me with awe. Love is my greatest teacher to whom I am devoted to all my days. 

What is your beauty /health practice? 
My beauty routine has always been very simple, keep it natural. Minimal make-up and organic beauty products. I lavish my skin with a variety of rose oils. I also limit my exposure to long hours of direct sun.

Water is my medicine and I de-stress with hot springs, baths and lots of bodywork. Biweekly massage and cranial sacral is a necessity for me with my intense weaving work schedule. I eat 85% plants to meat for meals and listen always to what my body is requesting of me.. My diet mirrors the seasons as do my social engagements. As an introvert who is prolific with art, it's an absolute that I am in balance with my socializing. In spring and summer, I follow the trail of adventure. When autumn and winter are present, I'm found indoors cooking food, enjoying some wine with a small group of friends and practicing stillness. Quality over quantity is a mantra for me. 

I exercise 3 times a week, vascillating between hot yoga, Pilates or running. As a health practice, I implement one day a week without any work. I'm practicing the art of disconnecting more from social media to go hiking and tune further into the real knowledge of life. My meditation practice fluctuates with the demands of my schedule however I try to mediate at least 15 minutes each morning. I also have a daily gratitude practice in the morning with an evening gratitude practice right before sleep. 

One of the more important practices that serves my mental health these days is facing an obstacle or conflict fully. Movement is crucial for my mental health as well emotional/spiritual health. I'm very devoted to moving through conflict as quickly as possible so the stagnant emotions may be removed and replaced with space for more love and more creative energy. This practice feels quite relevant in this age of technology and I've also adopted as a rule, absolutely no processing of emotional matter via text message. When something feels out of alignment, I hop on a call, clear it and get back to the loving. It is a health practice to hold my relations in a clear and integral way. 

What makes your spirit glow?
Creating art, self expression in myriad of form and laughter are the staples. I've always treated myself like a lady, donned my treasured garb and taken myself out to some lovely dinners. I've learned to treat myself that way I'd want a partner to treat me. Making my niece laugh hysterically uplifts me in a new way I couldn't have conjured before her birth. 

For the wild woman within me, sitting in solitude atop a giant boulder with the winds whipping my hair around makes me glow. Camping alone in the desert and building myself a fire is enmpowering, dancing wildly by moonlight with loud music playing emblazens my spirit and praying with my spiritual allies in ceremony makes my entire being as bright as it was born with. 

How do you stay centered in the middle of chaos? 
Coffee, visualization and time outs. A good latte with have me charge through it all and I love coffee, ha. I visualize myself anchoring myself into the earth as a redwood and breathing in as much space as I need to be present with what I am facing. Communication and the manner/tone of communication is one of my greatest tools. When triggers arises, I kindly ask for a few minutes of alone time to process, breath and return. Knowing my own boundaries and communicating a need for assistance with them also allows me to move forwardly through anything. I also encourage myself internally and create positive feedback loops that allow my bandwidth to expand even greater. 

What causes /organizations are you passionate about? 
Right now, it's women's work. I'm researching organizations outside of the country that would enable me to study with and employ global networks of indigenous women  with steady income. Preserving tradition and empowering women to retain their traditional wisdom is very important to me so I'm working on a project that will allow younger generations to feel empowered to do what their grandmothers have done. When I became a woman of the loom, I also took on the responsibility on what it means to be a weaver in society. Weaver's really hold a mystical power that has fallen by the wayside in Western culture so I'd really like to see the honoring of both male and female in indigenous cultures that still uphold the traditions. I plan to return to Mexico and travel to South America soon to acquaint myself more with these communities in need of support. 

Man Makers is a small online project I have also started in effort to really highlight the craftsman of the men in our community. When the Trump regime began, I felt more of the need of the support from good and empathetic men in our society. Western society has been patriarchal for so many ions and through this chaos of the political climate, I believe many outstanding men are recognizing the need to evermore support women. My intention was to highlight the divine masculine that comes through the handmade proces of these artists and feel like there is a unification within the art world. We need the beauty and powerful messages of art and with all strength of our female nation stepping up, it's time to balance with beauty. So, in a small way, Man Makers is means of creating harmony within our greater community. The interviews from some of the men and their respect for their female peers really has made me glow in gratitude. 

If you could say one thing to the world what would you say? 
This will speak to the heart of the novice and perfectionist. Your work is to train yourself not to compare yourself to anyone as you truly are your own world. You have come in with your gifts and spirit alone, turn inward to explore the vastness of you and the only you who could only be you. Press pause on your self judgment and your critique. Set your goals and take note from those you admire but remember, you are exactly where you need to be at this time. Comparison is a waste of your finite resource of time and you alone are here to do your work. I believe everyone is born with creativity and if this is the past for you to embody, this one slice of advice will enable you to keep your eyes on your own goal. Let's allow all of our sisters to be queens of their worlds and we can be the queens of ours. We are here to support one another and this world is so much more lovely when we all get to be queens of our own castles. This will enable you to experience much more compassion for yourself along the road. 

How do you Mother the world?  
With my vulnerability. When I chose to walk within this strength, I've been witness to many more humans softening to their own strengths. Vulnerability allows us to enter the heartspace and gracefully push the ego aside, providing a meeting ground where magic and love reside. I'm constantly learning to forgive myself and take responsibility for my faults in a way that allows me to learn and not repeat mistakes. I also chose to mother with my ability to listen. Many times, people want to talk without receiving advice. Whole hearted listening teaches you to be present and hop in another's shoes. When I've witnessed a mother listening to her toddler, the whole experience seems to work out smoother.

Goddesses share their secrets...

What is success to you?
Remembering. Coming back to presence when I forget. Being able to feel each moment and assist the flow of harmony between all the elements and moving parts. A balance of showing up fully open and ready to serve whilst sitting back gracefully and allowing it all to unfold.

What is magic for you?
The elements. Nature. The feet and lets that carry my body around everyday. That you can plant seed into the ground and from it arises green life that stretches to the sun and then forms a juicy red sweet berry that makes your mouth pucker and water and brings a smile to your face. That fire conducts water. The sunrise. The sunset. The moon.

What is love for you?
An opened ended mystery of trust and surrender.

What is your beauty / health practice?
I love being out in nature. I love lying on the earth. Swimming in the ocean. Going from hot to cold has always been very healing for me. So, sweating in the sauna and then cold plunging. Putting organic foods in my body and natural plant based products on my skin. Stretching every morning. Drinking tea. Laughing. 

What makes your spirit glow?
An open heart connected to unconditional infinite love. The deep resonant heartbeat of the drum. Dancing and singing. 

How do you stay centered in the middle of chaos?
It is easy if I am in the middle of it and it doesn't hit a personal trigger. Kind of like the eye of a tornado, I just stay centered in stillness. I sit and observe and from that witnessing much can be learned. If the chaos pulls and lures me into the spiral, well then best to surrender and dance with it until I find myself once again seated in the eye. 

Remembering the breath can help me to skillfully dance through the storm. Meditation helps expose the triggers so we can unravel them and return to the center.

Eventually there is no separation between the two and we can rest in stillness on the outer edges of chaos and dance with ecstatic abandon in the center...

If you could say one thing to the world, what would you say?
Wake up. Take responsibility for the life you have created for yourself. Turn the finger you have been pointing outward inward. Remember your spirit and who you are. Open your heart and love it all.

Goddesses Share Their Secrets...

What is success to you?
Success to me is engaging in activities that make a difference in people’s lives. Even if only if only ONE person’s life is profoundly and positively affected, that’s worth it. I also love the ability to create beautiful experiences and a vision that people can align with, and have that support myself, my family, my team and the community. 

What is magic for you?
Tiny synchronicities. Signs in nature. Flowers + their tremendous, transformative powers. Trees + their wisdom. Mother Earth in her ancient + vast knowingness. Poetry, creative writing + the way the cream (and magical insights) rise to the top if you allow yourself to be as honest as possible. Unavoidable, transformative meetings with people that change you or your life in some way. The way that meditation, meaningful rituals, devotion, prayer + spirituality evolve + deepen our lives in a tangible way. 

What is love for you?
Hmmm. True love is unconditional, yet so difficult to truly be without conditions. It’s a constant practice of loving yourself so much that you’re not seeking love from the outside, and subsequently the ability to let people be free to be themselves and do what they do - without expectations and attachments. Harder said than done, but the practice itself is what grows us. Sometimes love breaks our hearts open, so that more light can come in - sometimes it comes like a lightning flash + we don’t understand its power or where it came from. Other times it’s slow-growing and malleable and enduring. Most importantly though, as a starting point, I believe, is this practice of loving ourselves. Our ability to love others is in proportion to our our ability to love + cherish ourselves. 

What is your beauty / health practice?
Meditation, breathing, spending time in nature … for inner beauty, which naturally translates into outer beauty without even trying! Experiencing more spaciousness, insights and openness to whatever arises is the best health practice too. 

And also I love to: 

Take breaks. Go outside. Get fresh air. Drink water. Eat dark chocolate. Focus on the little things that bring joy + beauty. Avoid sugar, wheat, dairy + processed foods. Eat lots of mangos! Put oils on the skin. Experiment with herbs, superfoods + supplements that nourish. 

What makes your spirit glow?
Creativity. Making beautiful things or leading beautiful projects. Salsa dancing. Transformative meditation, awareness practices + prayer. The Earth under our feet, the leaves of the dancing trees in the breeze + sunlight. Hot springs. Asian bathhouses. Travel to Asia + eating all kinds of yummy, healthy food. Crazy, exotic, beautiful, transformative flowers! Buddhist monks/nuns chanting + the crazy wisdom yogis + rinpoches that make magic. 

How do you stay centered in the middle of chaos?
I embrace the chaos. And try to get as quiet, still + aware within it as possible - the eye of the storm. 

More practical everyday actions might include: 

Spending time in nature. Meditation. Just taking a minute to breathe outside and feel connected to the trees, flowers, earth and everything around me. Remembering the profound quality of life, how precious and fleeting everything is. 

What causes / organizations are you passionate about?
My passions reside quietly within me, in my life as a role model + in all the conversations I have with people. Some things that come to mind are: healthy eating according to the needs of your body, healthy alternatives to medication if desired, the importance of caring for our parents when they are aging or dying, the ability to have babies in a place where there are no sick people if desired, and learning how to work with intense emotions to help transform our lives. 

If you could say one thing to the world what would you say?
Mother Earth is absolutely here to support us, if we tune in and open up to it, providing soooooo many forms of nourishment for physical, emotional and spiritual health, in the form of trees, plants, flowers, healing foods, herbs, flower elixirs and magical insights and lessons if we listen. We are not alone - we are always supported in our quest for balance, vitality, growth and transformation of our hearts. 

How do you Mother the world? 
I care deeply. I create elixirs that help people see their own potential + try to get them in as many hands as possible. I dedicate my activities to the happiness of all sentient beings. I extend gentleness, softness, kindness … and am teaching myself how to also be equally as discerning, fearless and fierce. 

Also, we have events called Flowerlounges, in which we create experiences for people to rediscover what's most important to them. We have a 7-city tour coming up in July ~ would love to see your readers there!

Jaclyn Hodes

Goddesses Share Their Secrets...

What is success to you?
Success is to feel fulfilled each day, like you offered part of yourself to your creative expression and it touched someone else.

What is magic for you?
Magic for me is the connection that's made between time and space and when you know that you know

What is love for you?
The moment when you look back and accept that it was and will always be love. Looking forward to recognize it in the present moment.

What is your beauty /health practice?
Face oils are essential as I start my day and some super gentle kundalini yoga movement and salt baths with the essential oils and evening hikes in the canyon where I live in Topanga. I feel super renewed from the healing blooming plants that line one of my favorite hikes. I also am loving incorporating my FEATHER EAGLE SKY rare earth face mask into my daily routine.

What makes your spirit glow?
Feeling seen makes my spirit glow, The embrace of nature is particularly potent as is authentic human connection.

How do you stay centered in the middle of chaos?
I either go to the beach, walk on the sand and dose myself with some water. If I can't go in the ocean, I at least submerge my feet and throw some water over my head, 3x in a quick a potent prayer to the sea, to myself.

What causes /organizations are you passionate about?
Carrying for our waterways and the land surrounding it, empowering women to work and then also empowering the men so that balance in occurs again. I think WAVES FOR WATER is doing an amazing job with their program of disseminating water filters and sharing the simple but effective way to have clean safe drinking water along with WOMENS WATER INITIATIVE and WEA (Women's Earth Alliance) is a powerful organization that I want to work with more directly.

If you could say one thing to the world what would you say?
Please just breathe, consciously and deeply. And please feel, feel your self, specifically your feet on the earth and look, please look at oneself and one another more deeply, and directly, eye to eye. If we just could stay present and try to see one another than we would be moving closer toward peace and awareness. I keep forgetting to do these life practices myself and when things get whirly...so a reminder to myself and wish to extend the practice outward.

What has been the greatest lesson as a mother you've learned?
As someone with 5 planets in Scorpio I can say that death and rebirth is a prevailing theme in my life, in every moment, so be flexible to die and be reborn, into a new self and be there to witness the rebirthing of each other, allow for space to be new again and while holding something solid for each other, by just witnessing perhaps, we can also create space for what may truly be needing light and emergence in one another.

What advice would you give to a new mother?
Being so gentle to yourself in the transition from one self to another is not easy but essential. Not yet a mother and can only imagine that one's sense of self and consciousness is inextricably connected to a new way of seeing and being in the world. As mother you are connected to a new lineage and an oath to an ancestry and future blood lines open up--what a powerful portal in addition to now being in care of a new being to this planet. As mother to my creations and business I keep learning how to grow along the growing entity and imagine there's some similarities.

What is success to you?
Success to me is being in integrity with all things I do. With the way I interact with people, with everything I create, with the way I make my money, with the way I see myself. 

It's continuing to be radiant, vulnerable, creative and hopefully inspiring to the people who need it. Personally, a successful life for me is creating conscious media that showcases the talents and messages of incredible humans. And also to continue to create sustainable products that inspire people to create more awareness and ritual in their lives. Basically what i'm doing now... but on a continuously larger scale. 

What is magic for you?
Magic is the Earth. The intricacies of all that is here. The elements. The plants. Noticing the little details. Gratitude. Marvelling at the sky, or the moon, or the fire. Creating ceremonies with these elements to uplift and heal yourself and others.

What is love for you?
The gaze of awe-filled recognition from your lover or friends. When you feel so seen, heard, and honored by someone... and to let that sink in and burst out through your heart. Love is feeling so held and supported by the Earth too...

When you're laying on the ground or the sand, crying / releasing stuck energy and knowing that the Earth's got you and that you're giving it all up to something so much grander and limitless than anything you could ever experience in this human life. Love is trusting that you're here for good things, and focusing on that service-filled perspective on life. 

What is your beauty / health practice?
I always take time in the morning to drop into my body. To stretch and open up my hips, breathe deep and shake out all of yesterday's energy. I love doing bend backs and handstands in the morning, just to get my blood flowing in a new way.

I'm pretty natural and simple with beauty products. I concocted my own essential oil perfume blend so I wear that, then usually a little Paw-Paw gel, natural moisturizer & mascara and i'm ready. 

I make potent tonics in the mornings which I always look forward to! They're a combination of cacao, medicinal mushrooms (reishi, chaga etc...), a probiotic powder, fresh ginger/turmeric, dates to sweeten, and usually almond milk. So damn good. That always gets me glowing and ready to begin my day! I love sharing them with beautiful friends and watching them enjoy. 

What makes your spirit glow?
Jumping in the ocean, or a waterfall, or any body of water really! Getting my heart-rate going by dancing or running or swimming. Being in service, and helping share the good messages of people. Being creative - in any way!

How do you stay centered in the middle of chaos?
By not going into the stories in my head or the ones other people are spinning. By seeing it all from the birds eye perspective. By asking myself how I can be more in service. By breathing deep and taking time to ground in, back to my real self. By always being willing to be humbled. By just holding a strong, kind, aware presence through it all. 

What causes / organizations are you passionate about?
I love what Sea Shepherd continues to do for our oceans and marine life. They rock.

I'm super passionate about helping to support the next generation so I love any organization that's doing rites of passage or educational programs for young girls and boys. So, so important for us to be supported, educated and held in the right way from a young age so we can carry that forward in our lives. There's one called Future Dreamers that i love.

I'm supportive of any organization that's striving to create a better world! We're all called to help different areas of the movement, and we've got to listen to what really hits home for us and actively support that area of the revolution... because there's so many different issues to address, it can seem overwhelming! Focus on what calls you most.

If you could say one thing to the world what would you say?
Look up at the sky, stand tall, breathe deep, drop into gratitude, and then do all actions from that place, every day. 

What advice would you give to a new mother?
Listen. Be humbled. Allow them to transform you. Be so present and grateful.

What is success to you?
Success to me is about being happy.

What is magic to you?
Magic to me is anything that heals my soul. It could be a hawk that lands in a tree I'm sitting under, the ocean waves breaking in perfect rhythm, or when my husband kisses my neck when I’m not expecting it. Magic is simple.

What is love to you?
For me, love and magic go hand in hand. Love is the fuel of the heart. I thrive on the things, people, places around me. Love centers me, soothes me, comforts me.

What is your health and beauty practice?
I have never been asked about my health practices before… I stay healthy by being active and spending time with loved ones. To get technical though, I eat a plant-based diet and practice yoga. I’ve learned that your body can betray you when you least expect it, so I concentrate on health more now that ever. I lost three organs in 2016 due to tumors (one being malignant, the other was benign) so I do everything I can to keep the organs I do have healthy. I have a garden that I grow lots of dark cruciferous veggies in. I try to walk 3 miles or more per day. I dance when I’m cooking dinner. I swim with my dog. I flyfish.

What makes your spirit glow?
I think that my humor is what makes my spirit glow. I’m goofy. I love making my husband laugh. So I would have to say that my spirit glows when he is sitting at the dinner table watching me dance and sing while I make dinner. I’ll make up words and dance moves just to see him laugh.  That, or when I catch a pretty fish. Then you really see my face light up.

How do you stay centered in chaos?
I am an anxious being; I get it from my dad. I have had to really focus on not letting my anxiety get the best of me. So, to stay centered, I breathe. I concentrate on my breathing to find rhythm. I go flyfishing. I’ll do yoga until all the kinks are out.

What causes/organizations are you passionate about? 
I love being outdoors, and I want to give back to Mother Earth in ways that I can. So, I am part of Trout Unlimited as a way to donate my time and money to river conservation. I’m working on becoming a volunteer for Casting for Recovery; an organization where women who are fighting cancer or are cancer survivors cancer can learn to flyfish with experienced anglers. Also, as a teacher, I incorporate education about maintaining healthy rivers into the curriculum.

If you could say one thing to the world, what would it be?
If I could say one thing to the world it would be, “Hey World, lighten up a bit.”

What is success to you?
I measure my success in relatively simple terms.  It's not an ultimate goal, but a work in progress.  It's less about money or to do lists and more about my ability find a healthy balance between work and life.  It's about living my life in a way that is true to me, but not one necessarily defined by societies standards.  As long as my basic needs are met and I am able to make space in a busy day for nature, for a bit of quiet, a bit of connection and creation...I've had success.  Of course, some days are more successful that others, but I'd like to think I can find a sliver of success in most of them.  When I'm learning, growing, loving...I'm working my way toward living my own definition of success.

What is magic for you?
I'd say I find a bit of magic everyday.  Today, I watched a fox hunting among the snow drifts covering my back yard.  I felt the magic there, in that dance, in the little creature's lithe movements.  I see magic all the time in wild places and open spaces...in the creatures that inhabit them...In sunrises and sunsets.  In high mountain lakes, glacial fed streams, flush with clean water, healthy fish and in tact ecosystems.  I see it both in the grandiose...and in the diminutive, too. In the shapes of leaves and the change of seasons. I'd venture that you really don't have to look very far to find a little magic in the everyday.  

What is love for you?
This is a tough one for me to articulate...but, here goes...Love is the ability to let go, to be yourself, in your glory, in your grace...as well as in your darkness.  And to let another person find that safety, in you too.  And in the knowledge of both the dark and the light, to go right on loving just the same.  The ability to both see and accept flaws, idiosyncrasies, and insecurities. And the desire to ease them...to feel that drive to help, to ease another's journey, to make them whole.  The ability to feel pain when the are wounded, and find true joy in their successes.  To love is to truly want the best for another...enough that you are willing to work for it, to fight and to sacrifice for it, for them. For love.  

What is your beauty health practice?
Sunshine, a good sweat, plenty of time spent outside...and a good moisturizer!   Healthy clean foods, plenty of water...and a little nip of whiskey for good measure.

What makes your spirit glow?
A walk in the woods, rain or shine.  An alpine lake baptism.  Travel. Climbing...and creating...always creating.  Those sacred times in life when you have the freedom of time, when you rise and settle with the cycle of the sun.  Right now I'm picturing red rock walls, sandstone, and full day of climbing and exploring under a desert sun.  A little tent on a bluff to call home for a spell, and a solid string of blissful nights sleep. When you've exhausted your body in a beautiful place...that full body relaxed that comes with it. Peace. I swear, on days like that I can actually feel myself glow.

How do you stay centered in the middle of chaos?  
This is something that I work on all the time.  It's so much easier to stay calm and centered when all is well.  But, it's those times when you're smack dab in middle of the shit storm that it's so important to root down, to continue to cultivate that sense of stillness. For me, it's simple things...forcing myself to breath mindfully, to remember to seek and hold on to the good. It's a reoccurring theme for me...but time spent in solitude...in nature, always does the trick.  Fresh air, fresh perspective, and a good sweat. Gentle reminders of the good.

What causes/organizations are you passionate about? 
Gah~ there are so many! But I'd say, it's always the environment for me.  I truly believe it's crucial to everything, to everyone, everywhere. Quality of life. Clean water, clean air, sustainability and making sure that people both have access to these resources, as well as the desire to preserve them for future generations. If you could say one thing to the world what would you say?We've only got one. One earth...one home to house us all.  So be kind. Be compassionate.  Both to one another, to the planet....and to creatures great and small.

WHAT IS SUCCESS TO YOU?
Success is accomplishing one task at a time. Seriously, success can mean something as simple as baking a pie and not burning it or finishing a book. You shouldn’t be SO hard on yourself. And that’s why….(read below)

WHAT IS MAGIC FOR YOU?
We are all capable in living in the magic. We are born with it. You can seriously manifest anything you want. Just remember, be careful for what you wish for. Intention is powerful!!

WHAT IS LOVE FOR YOU?
Love is what conquers all. No matter how smart you are, no matter how dumb an individual may be, no matter how small, large, spiritual, religious, fearful, etc.. love conquers all. Love loves love and only love. Love in itself is an entity that we have yet to fully understand, and maybe we don’t have to understand it, we just need to feel it, and accept it when the love potion eases its way throughout our bodies and consumes our entire being. All there is is love. To love and be loved.

WHAT IS YOUR BEAUTY/HEALTH PRACTICE?
Being in the sun, facing the ice cold wind, embracing all elements. Bathing in flowers and leaves, and plants-- consuming them. Haha, and of course, using FEATHER EAGLE SKY skin care products! DUH!!

WHAT MAKES YOUR SPIRIT GLOW?
Being able to drink water out of the river that flows from the sacred mountain I live under. Eating the food that my family and I grow and harvest, and the meat of the animals that roam wild in the hills. Uh, and waking up every morning HAPPY and LOVED.. AND my absolute respect and devotion to the BLUE CORN MAIDENS.

HOW DO YOU STAY CENTERED IN THE MIDDLE OF CHAOS?
Go take a dip in the freezing waters-- that’ll wake you up! Or take a walk into the corn fields, and focusing on my breathing.

WHAT CAUSES/ORGANIZATIONS ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?
Planting the seeds of the ancients/my ancestors. Participating in ceremony in my community through song and dance.

IF YOU COULD SAY ONE THING TO THE WORLD WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?
Make your dreams a reality!!! Anything is possible; face your fears and fuck what people say about you and the way you live.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW MOTHER?
Sing to your baby, even if you feel you don’t know any songs or feel your voice isn’t soft enough, massage baby, teach baby the importance of prayer and giving thanks for each day we are alive. Babies are fragile, but that shouldn't stop you from taking baby outdoors and putting her/him in the earth. Let that baby get dirty and taste the soil!

Camille Rose Giglio

WHAT IS SUCCESS TO YOU?
Success is the ultimate goal in life. But for me, not in the way you think. I think success is the realization that all we have is now. This life is right now, it’s all happening right now. It’s all about the journey, and soaking up every moment of it, not just the end result.

WHAT IS MAGIC FOR YOU?
Magic is the universal forces at work. It’s the direct deep connection that we all have to source, the unwavering forces that are always available for us to connect with, and tap into. It’s the spirit world here with us in every moment. It’s the connection with the universe, our own mother earth, and all of her majestic forces at work. 

WHAT IS LOVE FOR YOU?
Love is staying present. Love, is a constant evolution. Love is where I feel the most connected to myself, to source, and then to those around me. Love is that force imbedded in me as a mother, that will give everything I have no matter how tired, how “not in the mood”, however not available that I am. Love is when I am always choosing the better thoughts, the better actions, the higher purpose. Only when coming from a place of love, do ideas and inspiration come to me. 

WHAT IS YOUR BEAUTY/HEALTH PRACTICE?
I always make sure I am listening to my body first. My body prefers a diet of traditional foods, with pure ingredients, not too far from what our ancestors may have eaten. Since our skin is the largest organ in our body, and we are eating essentially everything that goes on our body, I wouldn’t put anything on my body that I couldn’t eat also. I take the greatest care that everything put on my body, and my children’s bodies is crafted with the purest ingredients, and nothing else. Other than that, movement for me is so important. I’ve never settled on any form of exercise for very long, except for dancing! Nothing gets me moving my body like a live concert or a good playlist. 

WHAT MAKES YOUR SPIRIT GLOW?
My children! Seeing my children together, laughing and playing, there is nothing that makes me smile and laugh more. They are always connected to source, and full of laughter and love, reminding us all of the way to be. The fact that these two beings both came from my womb, is a direct connection to me and my spirit, and also happens to be my biggest accomplishment. That, basking in the warm sun, and being in my favorite spot in the woods.

HOW DO YOU STAY CENTERED IN THE MIDDLE OF CHAOS?
Well, for starters, I don’t know if I always do! Stay centered that is. I think I stay centered by not getting stuck in any one place. I truly try and ebb and flow with each day, and with each moment. If life is chaotic and nuts that day, the more I can be embracing every second and being along for the ride, while maintaining my own rhythm that is unique to me, the better I will feel. A quick nap or meditation can always provide an excellent reset for me.

WHAT CAUSES/ORGANIZATIONS ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?
Right now, one of the very most important moments in all of history is happening. The number of times I’ve almost packed it up and headed out to Standing Rock can be counted on more than 2 hands. The water protectors at Standing Rock are not just standing up to protect the reservation land, they are standing up for the clean water for millions of people. If there’s ever been anything that needs our help, any reason to give, now is the time. 

IF YOU COULD SAY ONE THING TO THE WORLD WHAT WOULD YOU SAY? Go forth with joy! :-) WHAT HAS BEEN THE GREATEST LESSON AS A MOTHER YOU’VE LEARNED?
Really, we’re all in this together. I don’t do authoritative parenting, and I am not the boss of my child. I want to show my child that they are their own guiding light, and I’m here and available for any and all support that he needs (I have 2 boys). We’re a team, all of us, and we work together to make our life come together in wonderful ways, every day. I was blessed to have a Taurus boy for my first born, and he’s one day apart from my birthday, I’m also a Taurus. Any time I’ve ever tried any parenting with authoritative style, we butt heads and I go back to the drawing board. Some would tell me, you just need to break their spirit and make sure they listen to you. Um, what? Break my child’s spirit!? No, no, that’s not what we’re here for. It’s everything I can do every day to make sure the spirits in my children soar become their own guiding light. Our journey is constantly evolving, and we are always aiming to do whatever feels best, for everyone involved. 

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW MOTHER?
Always trust your intuition! Some days it may feel like you’re making things up in your mind, but your heart always knows. Always.  I never told my child “oh don’t cry” as a baby, because I didn’t want to teach him not to be emotional from such a young age. Cry all you want! I’m here to help you find whatever it is you need, we can work this out together. When I was pregnant with my first baby, my mother told me, “babies never cry for no reason.” From birth, with both of my babies, I would figure out whatever they needed from the moment they started fussing. I recently learned that in tribal cultures, a baby would be picked up and held by the nearest available person before they even started to cry. Even in high emotions with my older boy having an outburst as he did in his toddler years, I didn’t try and stop it from happening, I just stood by to see how I could help.

Goddesses Share Their Secrets...

What is success to you?
I don't know because it's something that seems to oscillate, feeling it and not feeling it. But, maybe a feeling of the fullness of an energy and/or the ability of an energy to be effective.   

What is magic for you?
Raw creative power.

I just listened to the Equinox radio show of Caroline Casey's 'Visionary Activist' show on KPFA radio, where she interviewed Starhawk. Now those would be some ladies to ask about magic. I also found myself linking to a recent article about language and sound, am important part of invoking and sealing magic. and found the authors mention of synesthesia being the ability that humans have for associating stimuli across different modalities. Changes in consciousness that are translated through the feel of a leaf or a stone or a star into sound - into language - that's gotta be magic right! 

What is love for you?
Energy that works together. which i guess would make energy that doesn't work together unconditional love. hmmm, this is a big one. It's a higher plane, an energy consciousness that we all know and feel, something that encompasses nourishment, sustenance, habitat, knowledge, freedom, beauty. 

What is your beauty/health practices?
Regular sauna, daily moisturizing, rest and healthy eating, washing hands with soap and water, eco friendly/handmade beauty products

What makes your spirit glow?
Full belly laughs with my 2 year old, staying dedicated to curiosity

How do you stay centered in the middle of chaos?
Breathing...always back to the breath 

What causes organizations are you passionate about?
I am passionate about the political revolution sparked by Bernie Sanders, passionate about Indigenous rights, passionate about sharing love for wild food plants. The photo attached is of my arrest standing with Hawaiians in opposition to telescope construction atop Mauna a Waukea and Haleakala. My dad was a physics and calculus teacher who taught me how to use a telescope from the time I was in the second grade. I am a science and astronomy lover, but the US Military use of the tops of these sacred mountains along with private industry in the building of massive telescopes the size of football stadiums while old decommissioned telescopes clutter up the peaks and are not cleaned up...this interrupts Hawaiian relationships with the land, and ultimately all of our relationship with the land. I am very passionate about connection, with fellow humans/flora/fauna, that is sacred. 

If you could say one thing to the world what would you say?
Eat one wild food every day

What has been the greatest lesson as a mother you've learned?
Patience

What advice would you give a new mother?
Stop worrying so much. Let go.

Goddesses Share Their Secrets...

What is success to you?
Feeling in harmony with all aspects of myself, and watching the world organize around that. So when my thoughts/heart/actions align and I feel a deep sense of inner peace, then I carry that into the world around me, that to me is success.

What is magic to you?
Invisible forces shaping visible ones. That for me, is magic. And it’s happening all the time. Healing physical systems with the mind, or a gesture of the hands, is also magic, and that too, is happening all of the time.

What is love to you?
Mmmmm. Love. The feeling literally in my heart that sends waves through my entire body, cleansing any tension or discomfort, and bringing the deepest sense of relaxation and healing. Peace. Joy. A desire to be engaged with just what is presenting itself...

What is your beauty/health practice?
Lots of sleep. Regular movement/exercise. Qigong. Clean water all the time. Occasional acupuncture and cranial work. Time in my garden. Time outside. Self-massage. Meditation. Love.

How do you stay centered in the middle of chaos?
I remember “God”. The Divine Source of all that is. That which breathes life into each moment and each living thing. This often means working with my mind. Constantly observing my thoughts and directing them towards that place of Trust. Deep, real trust that it’s all ok, no matter how uncomfortable it feels at the time. It also helps to remember my sense of humor!!! And bring that, and a little love/compassion, into the overwhelming situations.

What makes your spirit glow?
My Man. He is the mirror of my own wildest, deepest, most complex and most simple nature. My love for him must make my spirit glow. And then there is running down to the ocean, as fast as my feet will take me, and diving into those icy cold waters....And dancing.....

What causes are you passionate about?
Right now I am particularly engaged with the Vaccine topic- a controversial topic to say the least. California has just passed a law that absolutely mandates a long list of vaccines for children entering school. The schedule of vaccines starts with Hepatitis B in newborns, a disease that is transmitted and only starts to appear in teens. The risks of vaccines are still in major debate, and taking away a parents right to choose or be selective about vaccines is something that should be a basic human right, I think. So I helped secure $10k in seed money for a new non-profit that a local Osteopath founded to educate physicians on the real risks of vaccines. They have just opened a lawsuit against the State of CA to challenge this new legislation.

If you could say one thing to the world, what would be be?
HO’OPONOPONO

What is the greatest lesson you have learned being a mother?
Humility and Modesty. Those seem to be the most important daily practices in our daily push to get fed, clothed, washed, to and from school, soccer, the store when necessary. With this comes the ability to apologize to my children when they deserve an apology.

What advice would you give to a new mother?
Cast away what “they” say, and write your own script. Maybe read Spiritual Midwifery by Ina May Gaskin, as it all starts there. How we hold our babies in utero, through birth and beyond sets the imprint for their entire lives. So education yourself before you give birth!!! And, when you are in labor, remember your baby is there, going through each and every step with you. So, instead of relating to the pain, relate to your LOVE. LOVE. Send your baby LOVE with each and every contraction. Soften, open, remember “God”. Your God. That which is holding you when you can no longer hold yourself. Give yourself into that. That LOVE that you have for the Divine, and this child which you are about to meet. Let every contraction be an invitation to love more deeply. Surrender more fully. Trust more completely that you are in the hands of the Divine. Trust that. Trust yourself and your ability. It is but a threshold. A doorway you are walking through into your next embodiment as Mother. So feel everything. Feel it completely, and find who you are. These are the tools you will need on the other side....Please, don’t give them away.
