The transformational Seek Sanctuary program is 8 weeks long, and there are 8 days until I cast the circle and open Sacred Space in that container. SO, get ready for a daily taste of what you get to experience! ๐—ช๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ธ ๐Ÿญ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฆ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ธ ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐˜พ๐™ช๐™ก๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ซ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐˜ผ๐™ฌ๐™–๐™ง๐™š๐™ฃ๐™š๐™จ๐™จ.

I am simultaneously scared and thrilled with the direction my work is taking.

Photo of Tara sitting on the ground at the base of a tree, wearing a white tank top and a long, flowing orange skirt. With a tree of life on the ground to her left, laughing.

I am scared because truly coming home to oneself is challenging work and dominant culture – which I name as a system of white supremacy – has taught me not to rock the boat or I won’t be ‘successful.’ Dominant culture has […]

I am not my trauma, and my trauma is not permanent.

Today’s Musing *Trigger Warning: mention of sexual assault, no details* As I endeavour on some healing over the next few weeks, I acknowledge that I am not my trauma and that my trauma is not permanent. My trauma consists of unprocessed and trapped emotion. I continue to develop my toolbox for processing and holding myself […]

Who am I to talk about white supremacy

White background with a translucent golden flame emerging from the bottom of the picture. Dark brown writing on top reading "Who am I to talk about white supremacy?"

This is a question that I have been sitting with since June when I saw the slick veils of white supremacy for the first time, sparked by the murder of George Floyd and the uprisings that followed. I am a young, slender, white, heterosexual-passing, able bodied, neuro-typical, Canadian, cis female. I hold a huge amount […]
