When I was in art school, I had a substitute teacher for just one class of the semester, and she lectured on plant and animal communication. I should note that this was an art history class and this topic was in no way related to the curriculum. She introduced me to The Secret Life of Plants and…
There are so many ways that we refer to this place. Liminal spaces, the Void, life between lives, edge dwelling, shadow work, transitions, shedding and transformation, the Bardo… if a “world” is a place with a concrete location, the space between is somehow beyond location. It is everywhere, it is the connective tissues of our…
“The past is a much a mystery as the future.” Season 3 of Umbrella Academy So often we think of healing or growing as resolving the wounds of the past, and maybe the present. The ways we hold on to experiences, are haunted by them, or see indications of their repetition all around us (whether…

An integral part of all cycles. I started this with just the title…
The notion of mind-body connection can be misleading. It suggests they are separate but connected, whereas I would rather say they are existing within the same matrix, two sides of the same coin.
