Transmissions for an increasingly complex and beautiful world.


The End Of My DreamCatcher Career

I posted this recently on my Facebook page(s) but wanted to elaborate a bit here, especially about cultural appropriation, which is so much more than something people fight about on Tumblr.   One way a bioregional animist friend of mine explained cultural appropriation was to “steal from the ancestors without giving back.” It’s the practice of one privileged group (often… Read more →


September Workshops: Indigo Shibori + Mixed Media Textiles

#MagicalRadical Art Camp was beyond the beyond of what I had hoped for. “Free, real, warm.” “Luscious, Full, Supportive.” “So badass! Blissful. Rejuvenating.” I’m offering two shorter workshops in September: Indigo Shibori Dying + Stamping, and Basic Weaving + Mixed Media Macramé Scholarships + payment plans are available. Space is limited however. But come check out my Portland pink palace.… Read more →


On Mother’s Day

I want to celebrate all the motherlovers and unmothered motherless others     I want to summon, gather and make noise for all tied tubes, hyster sisters, severed bloodlines and lineage breakers     I want to jump out of giant uterus shaped cake and give every stepmom in the world a bouquet of herbs no self-described shamanic practitioner cantillating… Read more →


Milk Carton Fairy House DIY

I posted an image of what we called FAIRYLANDIA on my Instagram and I got enough requests for a DIY I put this one together. Thank god the kids in my life are interested in the same wackadoodle epic craft endeavors that I am because I’d rather eat glass than have imaginary tea parties. It all kind of started with… Read more →

More Than A Prayer: Mass Shootings + Masculinity

Yesterday, I went to Planned Parenthood. I had to pass by an armed guard at the entrance because hegemonic masculinity has militarized my vagina.   Men are losing their shit.   *Ahem*– white, cis “MEN”. ← It should be noted.   They don’t make air quotes big enough for the kind of “men” perpetrating these crimes.   And it does… Read more →


I Want to Be Eaten

This article was featured in Elephant Journal. Please give it a click.   Recently, a brilliant yoga teacher said to the class, “The opposite of holding on isn’t letting go. It’s digestion.” Contemplating this idea and the claw marks on everything I’ve let go of it occurs to me… Everything gets eaten. We take in all kinds of nourishment, chew… Read more →


The Sacred NO + Spectrum GIVEAWAY

Being outraged all the time is exhausting. It can make you numb with grief.   Driving down the New Jersey Turnpike, past the factories heaving waste into the sky, and you wonder HOW CAN THIS GO ON ONE MORE SECOND.   Three friends text you, “Girl, when can we hang out?” OH GOD.   Another email comes asking for a discount… Read more →



So I’m watching a time-lapse video of a massive dam being dismantled over ten months to allow the Elwha river to roar back to life. Progress seems slow. I see my patterns and I know what’s good, but I still bark the harsh word, eat the bad thing, love the wrong people. Walking forward, I go in a circle. I look… Read more →
