It's hard to believe this faraway nearby year is coming to a close, and to rejoice in everything we've learned along the way, let's get together on a day that consists of the shortest of light with the longest of nights.
As we do, we'll gather at my abode, to remember.
We might move, we might still—and we will definitely write, so come heart-ready for anything.
This is PWYC, and as always, dog medicine is included.
Please bring your own mat, clothes you can move in, a journal and a pen—and something to offer (that you'll take home with you) to our communal gratitude altar.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your place in the circle (note that spots are limited) and receive top-secret location details.

*human is what we are // 31 days to keep going
March 1st to March 31st
Daily rituals, practices or habits are helpful spaces to return to when the going gets tough and the tough gets us going.
They can be safe places to feel all the feelings—to process too-much hurt or anger or fear and transform them into mindful, loving action.
When we take care of ourselves—truly, madly, deeply—we often do a much better job at taking care of each other.
It's kinda like building into our heart memory a cabin in the woods, or a room of our own—one that we can return to anytime—just like the breath that moves through these bodies, minds and hearts.
H.I.W.W.A.* is a thirty-one day virtual course designed to support the re-activation (or implementation) of a daily writing ritual—it's also a practice of radical self-care.
For the month of March, as we shift towards Spring, the ask is for you to carve out ten non-negotiable, sacred minutes every single day to write. No more, no less.
Maybe you'll rise early and sit with morning sun and a mug of something warm or iced—or maybe, you're a night owl and prefer to write by the light of the stars.
H.I.W.W.A.* will be delivered to your inbox daily—packed with daily meditations, cosmic musings and heart-inspired writing prompts, the content will vary from day to day to keep us all awake and on our toes.
No previous writing experience is required.
Cost: 31 Days for $30
