I had the utmost pleasure of chatting with Dr. Roxanne Partidge of @embodyperiod on the pod this week about sexuality, menstruation, embodiment, spirituality, and soooo much other juicy stuff. Go check it out in iTunes by searching 'Well and Weird,' or get at it via the link in my bio!

When the protagonist has her back to the camera, it means she's resisting the vantage of the cinematic word and/or the viewer -- or something like this, I remember learning in a film class in undergrad. We were watching Hitchcock's Marnie and the message sunk in, vaguely, as did the color of Marnie's handbag: a yellowy green, like a chartreuse; like the color of change. Like the color of consciousness taking flesh. This is a photo of me a week or so ago on Cape Greco in Cyprus, as the sun set and the moon rose. I could write you about beauty and the tones of my trip, but I won't - not now anyway. What I will do / am doing is signaling that another story is echoing beneath the contours of my face, pressed into the fur of my delicately purring beloved feline soul companion (Oliver, for those of you who know) as we, together, yellow and find our way into new embodiments of our bond πŸ’› πŸ™πŸΌβœ¨

Love this. Fishing out the curiosities of 11 and 12 year old girls from the Anonymous Bag of Questions from this past weekend's daughter and mother menarche workshop! Such an honor to hold and witness the changing blood stories of the generations sprouting around us. Empowered change is happening, beloveds. Here are a few of my favs from the weekend β™₯οΈπŸ’‹πŸ”»πŸ’₯

Yes, we take naps on the furniture 😸 Q: Who in you is in need of a rest? Pause. Feel. Experiment with putting this part of yourself at ease. What happens next?

"Emotion is the chief source of all becoming-conscious. There can be no transforming of darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion." #Jung πŸ–€πŸŒšπŸΎ Allowing for emotion, feelings, is one thing. Deepening into and befriending said emotion >>> next level celestially-embodied being shit. Work those new moon vibes luvs πŸ‘―

This is an image of my father on a menstrual pad pool float, sent via text to me today. I got him the float - anonymously, but he knew (something he and I have in common: trickster πŸ˜‰). I'd wanted exactly this; I'd wanted to create this image - for it to exist, and to see what it sparked or deepened by seeing it. One of many layers: Patriarchy on menstrual pad at leisure, in blue, chlorinated waters. Like the Fem Care industry - chlorinated products, the blue "menstrual fluid" of televised ads, etc. It also elicits a belly rumbled of laughter and delight to see my dad on this thing - like one of his sexist joke's turned on its head... πŸ™ƒ Aye, what narratives bleed through our experiences of the menstrual... Touch into your collective and personal threads with me tomorrow morning at β€’Blood Inkβ€’ a workshop of ritual, art making, and embodied rewriting of your full-blooded body narrative. Discover an archetypal approach to empowering your menstrual experience. Open to all menstruators.

An aesthetic, embodied response to the movement, the dance, the shedding, the shapeshifting, the transformation, the tenacity, the courage, the beauty, and the releasing into further embodiment that I see each day in the women I have the honor to work with. There is no emoji to express the love felt in such witnessing. And: β™₯️

Oliver's Monday vibes... or mine πŸ˜‰ Woke from a nightmarish dream image this morning and carried headache, annoyance, frustration, and all around desire for a pout and a cry until I saw: The ghastly dream figure from the dead wanted to be contained, removed, laid to rest. This echoed the arch of the weekend's lunation around boundaries, edges, and the things we carry. If you've got anything that feels lingering, not yours, or a energetic portal you'd like to close, do this simple ritual: Identify what/who you'd like strengthen your boundaries around, take writing instrument to paper and create a containing shape (see what comes), and place this thing or person within the shape (draw/write the name). Sit with this and feel what wants to happen next. You might feel satisfied - border made, energy released. You may want to do something with this piece of paper. Follow what you feel until it is done. Clear. πŸ’₯🌝πŸ’₯
