a practice for discerning decision-making (last call for Sanctuary)

Dear ones -

Friendly reminder that 5pm ET TODAY (Tues Mar 26th) is your last chance to join this cohort of Sanctuary and the beautiful group of humans who are coming together.

I’m really looking forward to our gathering tonight as I feel the potency of what’s happening in the world (human-made and natural) and in the dance of celestial bodies/ ancestors.

A time for deep reflection and rooted sourcing.

A time to pause and let the ripples of endings and beginnings move through our whole system so we can take action from an integrated place.

A time to ask hard questions and call forth our wisdom, together, collectively, including the presence of our ancestors as we do.

I’ve heard from a couple of people how luscious and important this gathering sounds to them- even as we celebrate their integrity in knowing this is not the right time for them to join.

A correct ‘not right now’ can be Sanctuary, too.

We’re building the new culture we want to see with every ‘yes’ and every ‘no’.

So I'll share with you a practice I recently put myself through when it came to a big decision I had a lot of different emotions about. May it serve you if you're on the fence about joining, or anytime you need to make a decision.

Ask yourself:

1) What is the energy of my 'yes' and my 'no'? (ex: which holds urgency, striving, desperation, resistance, possibility, fear/excitement, peace, ease, accountability, etc... if they were a person or animal, what would they look like and how are they acting?)

2) Which is more aligned with the me I want to be, with the world I want to build? (even if it's the less familiar energy or choice)

Then, if you are a yes, if the you you want to be and the world you want to build is served by your joining at this time, hop over here and jump in our group.

If it is the right time for you, I can't wait to see you there.

with Love,


P.S. The decision I arrived at using the above practice was not the one my ego or my fears and insecurities wanted. But I can feel how honoring it is the next step in aligning myself behind my values and I trust it will take me down new (and ultimately 'better') paths than the ones I've already been down (which haven't taken me where I want to go). Every different outcome begins with a different decision.

P.P. S. the characters of the story I’ll be telling in Sanctuary tonight are walking beside me today, getting ready to be shared and to work their medicine and magic.

P.P.P.S during our Sanctuary quiet free time… you’ll probably catch me knitting because my hands just do not want to be still right now and yet I don’t have the focus to warp my loom 🤣 How you might spend the time will be up to you: meditate? breathe? pray? mindfully move? craft, draw, write, create...? Whatever will feed your soul. It's Sanctuary, after all.

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...
