                    I offer you access into 
our wonderful ancient practices of
art, plant wisdom and astrology.
I support you to cultivate practices 
of wonderful ancient modalities of
art, plant wisdom and astrology.
Are you in the workism world and looking for a new move, a new groove? Are you in a pinch and find the grip too much and you need to gain perspective? Is there a curiosity to immerse yourself into the wild side, which nurtures, illuminates and is you, and you are looking to enhance life? 
I offer
astrology sessions,
plant & wellness sessions or 
experiential workshops to 
fine art tutorial
Let this website be a portal for you to distinguish if I am a fit to serve you. And our connection, should it occur, will then look to thrive with life and vitality beyond any medium of exchange. I speak of myself far too often here (on purpose) so that you can have a sense of who you are engaging. I find one posturing and pontificating about what they know and what they offer is not acknowledging that who is delivering the song and dance has impact on the nature of our connections. There is the stuff we will share, sometimes of divine wisdom, sometimes skill enhancement, yet there is also the dimensions of who you are, who I am and what our exchange between us brings forward. Connections call forward more than each of us alone. 
And then there is the bits of life force present as well. And that bit is wild. I welcome our wild, might you?

Where my services are rooted:

There are languages beyond speaking. Such as art, or that of astrology. As well the language of plants or herbalism and our body. Each have been cultivated for thousands of years, while freshly available today. These are my jam. This is where I have been engrossed in study, loads of experience and discovery. Each of these when engaged, offer vitality to unfold what might be tucked up tightly. Let our connection open us, unfold us with gentle clarity as a result of our intertwining life dynamics. I find these languages can speak specifically with gross clarity; and they can speak gently illuminating our own life particulars with such brilliance we are dancing on the winds of time. We can unfold and enfold vast sums of discovery nurturing our own vitality with art, astrology & herbalism. I welcome you to take on my services and join me.

Maybe you want to explore astrology. Listen to an interview with Thomas Miller, where I expresses my own step into astrology and you can hear where my heart dances to serve.
