I tried really hard not to think about Pulse. Then I found these photographs. My heart hurts and I'm struggling to find my breath today 💔 All I will ever want is a world that celebrates our existence and the creativity of our survival. 🕊 Offering and receiving pep talks / phone calls / texts / skype dates today, fam 🌈. I love you and will fight like hell for you ❤️.

✨✨HELLOOO SUMMER✨✨As summer settles in, I’m reminded why this season is my favorite. The sun 🌞, the air, the gatherings, all inviting us to welcome more ease + enjoyment into our lives.
Often when seasons change, our moods tend to swirl + shift right along with it. This time of year, I'm greeted with lots of emails + questions about happiness. Some about romance. Perhaps these feelings come to the surface because we are faced with change, and change can often be unsettling. That’s where self-reflection + self-care comes in (Yay! My favorite things!)
One way that I like to elevate my mood during this season is making time for alone time. A lot of us are constantly on the go + serving others in different capacities. That means there's a higher need for personal recharge sessions. 🔌One way I like to fill myself up is by going for a walk + do meditative breathing. This allows me to slow down + take in what's around me - the sounds, the smells, the feeling of the air.
Yesterday, I did just that at the farmer’s market when a stranger handed me these beautiful flowers 💐and said, "I thought these would make you smile" ...and WALKED AWAY!! He didn’t mention his name (or ask for my number 😑), just seeing someone else’s face light up was his joy! 😊 ️Man. If anyone out there is taking notes on my heart, there’s no rocket science, it’s VERY easy to make a place in it 💗 (probably too easy but OH WELL haha!)
How do you take care of yourself as the seasons change? I’d love to hear your self-care methods + practices 🌻
With all my love,
Charlotte ✨

"You are profound, even in your shadow" 🌕🌑A moment captured at last night's Trauma Healing Circle where 8 sister survivors gathered at @wmn_space to sit and be gently held. 🌿🌿 Here was a space for gentleness, grounding, and reconnection with our bodies. A sacred space to breathe together, shifting any discomforts, and opening our hearts. A place to remember. 🌿🌿This heart work is never easy. Meditation constantly reveals to me all the places where I've been triggered in my life. Daily, I have to commit (and recommit and recommit) to unraveling layers of resistance around my heart due to past abuse, trauma, and neglect. I try to remember that the size of those patterns have no comparison to the size of my impact in this world - as a healer, lover, artist, revolutionary, sister, daughter, friend. In choosing to heal from the hurt, I am preparing for joy. 🌿🌿Thank you, Zabie @transcending_trauma_with_yoga, our divinely guided facilitator for giving us sanctuary and a powerful invitation to reclaim that it is possible to feel comfortable, safe, and secure in our bodies. Tears of gratitude are welling up! My heart is so full of relief and is able to rest deeper knowing that you exist in the world. 🙏🏽💗These healing circles will be taught monthly on the first Sunday of every month at @wmn_space. Please join us for the next one on July 2 💗 With a hand on my heart, Charlotte ✨ #traumahealing #meditation #healing #breathwork #yoga #traumainformedyoga #collectivehealing #selfcare #wellness #selfcompassion #mindfulness #survivors #thrivers #recovery #neveralone #losangeles #community #women #wellbeing #gratitude #consciousness #consciousliving #mindbodyspirit

Today’s exploration: Beauty 💗 The seeds of beauty are in all of us. 🌱 Searching for these seeds outside of yourself is like a wave running to search for the water. She will never find it. She has to go home to herself with the strong knowledge that the water is within her. 🌊🌊🌊 For as long as I can remember, I have been healing my relationship with my own reflection and stepping into my natural beauty. I once found myself in an abusive relationship that damaged and distorted how I saw myself for years. In my recovery, I had to practice how to stop resisting and changing my outward self. When I devoted my energy instead on being kind and true - when I tapped into my inner wellspring of goodness, I started to feel more secure, accepted, and alive!! The chemistry of my body and face started to change, and I felt beautiful 💕✨ Mindfulness teaches us that our bodies are temples - beautiful things that need to be treated with care, love, and compassion. Simultaneously, we are asked to balance that wisdom with the understanding that beauty, physique, and all matters of appearance are impermanent. Whatever physical appearance we are dealt with now is incapable of staying the same forever. By understanding this, we come to touch the very being of who we are at the present moment - which is perfect and enough. ⏱✨The work of self-compassion is never easy. But if we try, we can begin to create a refuge from the stormy seas of endless positive and negative self-judgment, so that we can finally stop asking, “Am I as good as they are? Am I good enough?” I believe that anyone who maintains awareness in the present moment naturally emanates peace, joy, and happiness - and becomes beautiful. 💖⚡️A calm half smile and a loving heart will feel refreshing to anyone who looks upon you, and from there, we can open our hearts to ourselves, and each other 💗Photo by @vimcrony #beauty #acceptance #selflove #selfcompassion #mindfulness

Dharamsala, India • May 11, 2010 #TBT ✨✨ The great teacher Rabbi Zusya was lying on his deathbed, tears streaming down his face. When his followers asked him why he was crying, he said, "If God asks me why I wasn't like Moses, I'll say I wasn't blessed with that kind of leadership ability or wisdom. But if God asks me, "Zusya, why weren't you Zusya? Why didn't you fulfill your own highest potential? What will I say then?" Every night before falling asleep, I ask myself a thousand questions. What do I want? What does the universe want from me? How can I serve? What would I like to change? What's missing? I want to live my life to its fullest potential. I want to embrace my own purpose, however large or small it may be. Where would you like to go? What's calling to you? And how can we help each other? ✨✨

Root down to rise up! 🌳Last chance to check out "Roots: Asian American Movements in Los Angeles 1968-80's" on display at @camlaorg through June 11! Get in touch with your radical roots ✊️Curator @astrobuddha on the 📷 .
Who is “Asian American”? Contrary to popular perception, it is an identity defined out of protest. Starting in the 1960s, a group of young activists shaped “Asian America” through a long decade of fighting displacement, serving their communities, agitating for revolution, and analyzing the intersections of gender, race, and class. From Little Tokyo to Chinatown to Historic Filipinotown to the West Side, in solidarity with Latino, Black, feminist, and international struggles, Los Angeles saw the rise of vibrant artistic and political movements. Roots: Asian American Movements in Los Angeles 1968-80s is the first exhibition to collect and present this history, arguing that the past helps give meaning to the present and future of our communities.

- Treat each other better, causing less harm, and being accountable to each other for the harm we do cause
- Speak truth about, and confront racism, misogyny, ableism, and other forms of oppression
- Inspire our compassion, deepen our interdependence, and work for a more just and caring society
