a full-moon birthday podcast

Hiya, pack!

This is a quick note today to let you know we've got another podcast episode out.

I’m not going to pretend I think this is one of my best episodes. In fact, it feels like it’s one of my most rambling and least ‘helpful’. But it’s my birthday today and sometimes we get to just be human, not a’ helpful’ ‘resource’. Sometimes good enough is just that. (And sometimes we're surprised by how what we think isn't great may be perfect for someone, somewhere)

So join me around the fire for a short and sweet episode and to hear my raw, unpolished wonderings about ritual; ceremony; thresholds; grieving and celebrating - both alone and together; and the absolute miracle of being alive.

I also offer you a game, if you will, you can join me in playing as a way of celebrating my birthday. If you do, let me know how it goes.

I’d love to hear.

Here's a picture of little me - enjoying my first cake at 1yr old.

May we explore and let the Great Mystery guide us into unplanned play from time to time. May we honor our grief as well as our dreams. May we experience and receive the nourishment of belonging to ourselves, each other, and the wider web of kin and aliveness. May we know where we are through gratitude for exactly who and what we are. In times of darkness and despair, may we come home again to Love.

Here’s to another turn around the sun,


P.S. We have our Sanctuary gathering on Tuesday Feb 27th. This is the last free one for a while so if you want to check it out, join us. <3

Hi! I'm Kate - an intuitive, medicine woman, and guide for embodied Presence

I care with every fiber of my being that you, a creature of soul and soil, are trying to thrive in systems not designed for you. Where ancient wounds of disconnect, inherited traumas, and misalignments with our over-culture leave you feeling out of place, too much, or like a canary in the mine, I see invitations back deeper into your own aliveness; vital next steps to a wiser, more relational future. Let’s navigate your big questions and transitions together. I’ll support you living meaningfully in this world even though you may feel like you were designed for a different one. I’ll keep you orienting to the truth, heart, and essential wholeness of who you are at the edge of great joy and when you need your feet held to the fire of your own journey. You can see what I offer: www.wildsacredjourney.com and sign up to get a little bit of me, direct to your inbox!

Dear ones - I write to you today from a friend’s house outside of Boulder, CO - where, after over two months in the desert, I find myself in awe and wonder at the variety of green, green grasses. It reminds me how quickly we can attune and adapt ourselves to an environment and how small shifts at the level of environment can profoundly affect our subtle and physical body - and all the other aspects of our experience which are woven into those. Today is the full moon and so… we have another...

Dear ones - I hope you had a beautiful Beltane (for those in the Northern Hemisphere - Samhain for those in the Southern) - a time when the veil is thin between this world and the other and life is either at the height of bursting forth or at the beginning of its deepest diminishment. There are times when it feels so grounding to tune into the cycles of the year - nature’s rhythms. And times when the beauty of the continual flow of life feels so dissonant with the happenings of our human...

Dear ones - Happy Full Moon in Scorpio - a time for leaning into the death of things which are ready to release to make way for new life and aliveness. I write to you today from the mountains outside of Santa Fe where the warm sun balances the cold wind as it sighs through the cedars; and the full moon is bright enough to cast shadows while the coyotes yip and howl all night long. There are blooms. And on the highest peaks, there’s also still snow. Today’s podcast episode is a continuation of...
