When we open ourselves to deep sexual experiences, it opens our inner world. Tears might come from joy, or they might indicate a pocket of long-buried emotion has opened up and is spilling out. Sometimes she has been harboring so much longing that fulfillment bursts the dam. She might have difficulty tolerating that much ecstasy. She may have touched in on an early abuse memory that was buried from her awareness. A woman doesn’t have to know in that moment why she is experiencing such strong emotion. She doesn’t have to explain herself. She can ponder it on her own; follow it like a golden thread back into her psyche and discover something important. She can determine if this is Gatekeeper restriction, or if she is receiving feedback from an Inner Wise Woman who is telling her that she is engaging in something that is not in alignment with her deepest Self. -Chelsea Wakefield, In Search of Aphrodite ✨

First snow falling outside Aletis House, home of embodyperiod., evoking for me the importance of untangling internalized sexual scripts from actual body wisdom, freeing a woman from the grip of inner gatekeepers, to the intuitive art of her bodysoul. As the sky opens and spills, listen for Who is flowing from deep within ♥️

"A life truly lived constantly burns away veils of illusion, opening our eyes to our uniqueness. A life truly lived burns away what is no longer relevant, gradually reveals our essence until, at last, we are strong enough to stand to our naked truth." - Marion Woodman 🔥👁🔥

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 ♥️💋🔻💥

Extra hour of noticing, over red kale and eggs...Noticing an inner constellation of characters (personifications of infinite psyche) vie to lead the day. Todo List, Mystic, Writer, Vamp, Naturalist on a Walk, Netflix and Chill, Boss Lady, The Dreamer.... each decentered not only by one another, but also by The Now; which only decenters me further - away from this cluster of energy I know, and into something else. Something unknown. Emerging. Rearranging. And, smirking! For isn’t this the treasured egg/opus/stone/ideal? Alive, sublime, moving, glistening in synchronicity with the world? In practice, in the flesh. Actually. In sex, in menstruality, in being, doesn’t it all come down to this edge of stasis and mobility of the winged, scaled, and furry metamorphosis of... breakfast on Sunday when all the house is sleeping, the leaves blow, and you sit with yourself, noticing? •

O the vivid and synaesthetic sensuality of the forest! The mingling of Nature’s cool indifference and mossy fecundity. Pan’s trespass uniting body and the imaginary of the soul. Turned-on Sunday tramping in the woods. Love where I live. Who else gets turned on by Nature? Tell us how? 🌲💋🌲

Seeing the world from one of the many vulvic clefts of Aphrodite's rock, in Cyprus. When I went into her waters, I held each of my clients with me like shells vivifying in color when moistened. I felt - have been feeling - the shedding of what has been since I'd last visited here, and the Dream that is my path body me forth further. At such thresholds my edges tare, my soul shakes, my heart breaks open - deeper, wider. "There is no consciousness without pain," said Jung. Aye, how well my soulflesh knows this. This morning, I write from my salt and bergamot bath at home, in Hudson - with coffee. Returned. And in mourning. For the one who has traveled with me cross land and psychic grounds has passed. Companion, spirit guide, teacher, lover, gypsy, gentleman, soulmate, best friend, familiar, feline keeper of dreams. Sweet Oliver cat. Infinite gratitude to my mother who devoted her days to Oli when his health took a deep dive as soon as I left New York. Love to @emelem who tended to Aletis House while I was gone, and welcomed me home with flowers, a home cooked meal, and unpacking my car. You are a fairy of wonders. To my beloved for being alongside me through this... and bringing home a rotisserie chicken and ibuprofen because he knows I'm more likely to be a bone picking feral thing when mourning and premenstrual - ♥️. And my dearest little love, Oliver... thank you for waiting for me - for us - to return home. For showing me over these past days how much you love our life, and reminding me of your tenaciously autonomous spirit, and your sweet animal body that loves what it loves.... Rest, handsome. And now, we continue dreaming ✨🐾🕊♥️



p. s. Sessions resume this coming Monday... see website for new hours and session offerings (new 1hr option in addition to the regular 1.5 embody you sessions). If you've reached out to me recently and haven't heard back, I'll be in touch soon 💜
💋with love, Roxanne

If a sacred cow is standing in your path, shoo it away - Patricia Berry ✨ A Wednesday reminder from the kittens (playing with my sacred objects in the medicine wheel of embodied experience) to risk what you know - enter into a play, allow yourself to be moved by the unexpected. Many of my conversations with clients this week have danced with memories of sexual assault. What if the (valid) fears of interrupting inscribed scripts of behavior in such moments (if we’re even awake when they happen...), the nervous system shutting down at the scent of oppression, consciousness flying from the body, sly slitherings away, with apologies... stopped. Stopped, paused, peered at the something (systemic patriarchy) held holy here, and joined the trickster kittens and iconoclastic Pat Berry (and me) in the the collective and deeply personal breaking of sacred vessels of social standing and inclusion by way of ostracism of your body, heart, and soul. Deep breath. And then, what if what came next were voices sounding: SHOO! to those damn holy cows of toxic masculinity. Play this game with me? What then?

And just when you think all is quiet and with the dying in November, two women slip in from the darkness with the light of their souls.... tonight’s nearly-canceled Bodystorm brewed a close study of mind-body-heart-experiences of dark energy. Visceral quakes, transition hates, inner and outer voices of how “the female” ought to behave, suffering’s spirit medicine.... flames of rebel, resistance, autonomy, and grace flickering from the dark. As always, I’m lounged here in the afterglow of what gets stirred in these spaces, gratitude burning at the wick of a candle, reminding that together we rise. (Image of our pine cone fire fodder.)

Weekend snapshot from the archives of when I used an actual camera to take selfies. Back of my girl @rosieramseygranillo’s moto in El Salvador - over 10 years ago now. Rosie’s the kind of woman that lets the universe know when she’s up in the morning. In college, I’d wake to her feet stomp the floor above. I remember the first time I saw her, freshman year, walking down the hall back from the shower. There’s a girl who doesn’t give a fuck, I thought to myself - and wanted to be her friend. We haven’t seen each other in years - and right this moment she’s on her way here with her hubby and lil babe. As I excitedly await their arrival, I send a shout out to all your women adventure friends, the ones who dare to be themselves, and keep up as you dare the same 💓🙌🏼

“The images we take in are the nutrients of our subtle body.” -Marion Woodman. As autumn sinks into our bones and the holidays lure/lore us towards the New Year, I offer you and your embodied imagination some soul food for your ears. Last July, I joined @hollylowerycny hostess of Well + Weird, Health Coach, Anti-diet advocate, and the intuitive food goddes in the photo here, in a chat about sexuality, menstruation, and embodiment. We talk about curiosity as a wellness tool to rewriting our embodied stories, and I offer resources for deepening menstrual-sexual awareness. I share a bit of my journey into all things “embodyperiod.” through the triadic threshold of Tantra, ecopsycholgy, and queering menstruation. To hear it all and to find out how to indulge in @hollylowerycny’s Food Freedom Formula and other delectables, head on over to my blog on this Well + Weird episode (via web link in profile). 💋🍂🔻🍂

Warm new beginnings from my Halloween night - and first fire of the season - to yours🌻🍂 Have been celebrating my favorite holiday with my love since Friday, in various gestures of the sacred and profane. A moment it all came together for me was in Salem, procuring goods at a witch shop, dressed as my/a boy self. So much love and gratitude for this wild, changing, fluid life. •

The womb-like constitution of resonance, and the resonant constitution of the womb: What is the belly of a pregnant woman, if not the space or the antrum where a new instrument comes to resound, a new organon, which comes to fold in on itself, then to move, reviving from outside only sounds, which, when the day comes, it will begin to echo through its cry? But, more generally, more womblike, it is always in the belly that we end up listening, or start listening. The ear opens onto the sonorous cave we then become. ~Jean-Luc Nancy on listening // Image of my menstrual self on her last day, all ears (and apparently with a cigarette, although I don’t know this gesture first hand, she does) and listening to the sounds of self, finding self - in the matrix of being and bodying through 🔻

At times I feel as if I am spread out over the landscape and inside things, and am myself living in every tree, in the splashing of the waves, in the clouds and animals that come and go, in the procession of the seasons... - C. G. Jung, The Earth Has a Soul 🍂

Day 2 of bleeding and feeling particularly permeable with the ensouled matter of the Hudson Valley. Today marks two years of finding home in this place of river and mountains. Grateful to feel footing on terra firma here, as I follow psyche’s call to walk alongside the soul worlds of women ✨🌏🔻

Bodystorm is a monthly embodied visioning council for all those female embodied or identified to come together in collective vulnerability, storytelling, movement, and power. It’s also my favorite night of the month.

"No [wo]man ever steps in the same river twice, for its not the same river and [she's] not the same [wo]man." - Heraclitus
It is in continuing to flow that a river remains a river.
To paraphrase another of Heraclitus' fragments, it is in changing that we rest into ourselves.
Here's another reflection:
When we imagine ourselves like rivers,
we remember that our normalcy is fluid. 🌀 Luvs on my mailing list, head over to your inboxes for a home practice for returning to your (changing) self. Not getting my occasional letters of reflections and resources? Head to my website and sign up 💌

....Yet through depression we enter depths and in depth find soul. Depression is essential to the tragic sense of life. It moistens the dry soul, and dries the wet. It brings refuge, limitation, focus, gravity, weight, and humble powerlessness. It reminds of death. The true revolution begins in the individual who can be true to his or her depression. Neither jerking oneself out of it, caught in cycles of hope and despair, nor suffering through it till it turns, nor theologizing it — but discovering the consciousness and depths it wants. So begins the revolution on behalf of soul. - James Hillman 🔥🌝
.... May tonight’s lunation ignite and fan-fire the revolutionary movement of being and becoming the full complex beauty of yourself ♥️

Menstrual-sexual experience tended by Jungian/depth/archetypal psychology makes space for psyche's "bloody others" - the autonomous images of a woman's/menstruator's embodied psychic experience. Who shows up when you touch into your premenstrual self, your inner autumn? What image/creature/god/dess emerges from the yellowing foliage to welcome you into the mystery of this intensifying phase? Each time I guide a client through this active imagination practice, I am met with someone new; and each time I am met with the majesty of a psychic presence offering a deepened layer of empowered embodiment ✨🙏🏼✨🔻💫

Thresholds. Bendings, like bow and arrow. Like a spiral. The courage to, as Marion Woodman said, always be and become at once belongs to the archetype of the Virgin - inherent in the experience of being unto oneself. This Virgin (not the "Virgin" of patriarchy) is a style of fecund selfhood; embodying the edges of ourselves with irreverent reverence. Like the beginning and the end that is the bleeding time of a menstrual cycle (my current state). Both/and. Like the moon crescent-ing (new word) down beneath the Catskills before midnight yesterday, as if to say "be with your own lunations, I've got work to do." Cross over to your betweenness and return to yourself 🌛✨🌜

Sharing the love for @merakilabbe's vision! ✨Roxanne's ( @embodyperiod ) custom World Tarot Card i designed for her few weeks ago, signifies completion of a major life cycle, achievement + fullfilment. ○

___________
Major life cycle indeed ... I remember when I first met the Hanged Man - in many ways the inverse of The World woman dancing. It was over a card reader's table in the woods when I was 16. The journey of synchronicity and resonance between inner self and one's outer moving through the world is an ongoing spiral (psychic deconstruction, aka, individuation). And, there are shifts, transitions, deeply embodied reconfigurations of soul along the way. We are marked by the images that guide us - and - in my experience - often returned, expanded, to the full psychic sediment that constitutes our strangeness. Passed through, we re-member our complex beauty to this world we are of 💃🏻🌍🍃 ✨✨Wander over to @merakilabbe's profile for website and email for commissions! 💋🙏🏼eternal gratitude!

Body work is soul work. Imagination is the bridge between body and soul. To have healing power, an image needs to be taken into our body on our breath. Only then can the image connect with the life force. Only then can things change. - Marion Woodman 🍃✨🍃
Again and again, life shows me this to be true. What's your experience? What would you like to feel as a reality of your body? Find an image that invokes this feeling for you and enter into its imaginal reality with your breath. Notice what happens as you enter this new world of the image, as it opens and widens you to the experience of its phenomenal world 💓
