    #85 Tending to grief in times of crisis with Shauna Janz

    #85 Tending to grief in times of crisis with Shauna Janz

    Hey everyone,

    I hope you're safe and okay and that you are supporting the fight against police violence and anti-blackness wherever you are in any way you can.

    I'm sending a beautiful conversation about tending to grief in times of crisis with Shauna Janz your way. It was so good to listen back to it just now and I'm just really grateful to be able to share it with you. Here is some of what we talked about: 

    - Holding healing space for loss
    - Developing grief literacy and activism 
    - Slowing down and becoming still to examine dominant narratives
    - Holding the both/and of these times
    - What it might mean to become embodied 

    Shauna Janz (she/her) is dedicated to tending belonging in our world - within ourselves, with each other, and with our other-than-human relations. She creates space for reaching into the rough and beautiful places that are a catalyst for transformation and healing, personally and collectively, through grief work, embodiment, ritual and ancestral healing.

    Shauna has been serving individuals, families, communities and organizations since 2008, and recently launched an online school of Sacred Grief. Her offerings are trauma-informed, somatic-based and anchored in the resiliency of the human spirit, healing justice and animist values. She resides in Victoria, BC, on the west coast of Canada - traditional lands of the Coast Salish people. She is a lover of inspiration and creativity, and can be found dancing, playing music, and walking in the wilds of nature and mystical communion. Her ancestors are from the lands of Scot Celtic, northern Germanic and Nordic cultures.

    #84 Receiving ancestral blessings & tending to our grief with Adrienne Sloan

    #84 Receiving ancestral blessings & tending to our grief with Adrienne Sloan

    Hey sweet listeners,

    thank you so much for joining me for another episode! It's my honour to bring you a conversation with Adrienne Sloan, who spoke so beautifully about things that really matter to me right now. I hope this episode will bring you some joy and comfort as you go about your day. 

    I also want to say that I am in full support of the protests against police violence and that I hope 2020 will be a year of lasting change beyond what we can imagine right now. I know my work as a white person isn't done by just naming my solidarity and I'm committed to showing up in better ways now and in the future. I'm currently completing my book Rituals and am therefore taking a break from social media, but I'll be back soon. 

    Here is some of what Adrienne and I talked about: 

    - Small rituals for daily connection with our ancestors 
    - Staying present with our grief 
    - De-centering human relationships as a way to deepen our sense of belonging 
    - Cultivating practices for times of quarantine
    - Finding comfort in uncertainty 
    How Adrienne understands animism 

    Adrienne Sloan is a child of the 70’s, a wanderer between worlds who holds space for visionaries and creatives to embody connection with their ancestors and their deep-time kin. She is dedicated to the unraveling of human-centered narratives through exploration in the imaginal realms. Adrienne is the granddaughter of Jean Lorraine, Elizabeth Ann, Dorothy, Netta, Jenny, and Paloma.

    #83 Exploring living funeral ceremonies with Emily Cross

    #83 Exploring living funeral ceremonies with Emily Cross

    Hey everyone,

    I hope this episode with the wonderful Emily Cross finds you well and safe. I really, really loved talking to Emily about her work as an end of life doula and a facilitator of living funeral ceremonies. Our conversation covers things like fear of death, natural burials, living with embodied death awareness and what it's like to participate in one of her living funeral ceremonies. If you feel curious and open to thinking about your own mortality and are in the right place to engage with thoughts around death I think you might really enjoy listening to this episode. If you like you can also consider joining the next virtual ceremony on June 5th, the link is below and here is a video that will give you a better idea of what to expect: https://youtu.be/da_NJjqwGtw

    Emily Cross is an end-of-life doula, musician, and artist living in Austin, TX. After graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where her visual artwork centered around mortality and loss, she moved to Austin and quickly became integrated within the arts and music scene. In 2015 she decided to pursue a career serving the dying, and earned professional certifications from the University of Vermont and from Quality of Life Care. She established Steady Waves End of Life Services in 2017 and brings her unique set of skills to her work with the dying and their families.

    You can sign up for the virtual living funeral ceremony on June 5th here: https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=15983494&appointmentType=14314217

    #82 Intersectional herbalism for difficult times with Alexis J. Cunningfolk

    Hey friends,

    I hope you are safe and doing as okay as you can 3 I loved listening back to this episode with Alexis J. Cunningfolk - their work is so comforting to be around and continues to inspires my own practices. We recorded this last year, which now feels forever ago, and so much of what Alexis shared feels extremely  immediate and important today. Here is some of what we talked about: 

    - Centring re-enchantment in our work and our lives
    - Remembering ourselves back home
    - Working with plant allies and tarot archetypes
    - Self-care practices for difficult times
    - Embodying interconnectedness 

    Alexis J. Cunningfolk (she/they) is the intersectional herbalist and witch behind Worts + Cunning Apothecary. She is dedicated to the re-enchantment of the world and helps folks to re-member themselves back home to their magick through herbal healing, magickal arts, and sound therapies both ancestral and modern. Her work is informed by her queerness, mxd ancestry, and the fact that they’re a young hag just waiting for time to catch up. They host online and in-person courses for starry-hearted healers as well as offering in-person services grounded in building communities of inclusivity and justice. Connect to free resources and more at wortsandcunning.com.

    Happy Beltane & May Day sweet listeners! 

    I recorded this episode with the wonderful Lara Veleda Vesta quite some time ago and felt bad for publishing it so late, but listening back to our conversation just now made me realise that the timing is just perfect - Lara has so much wisdom and beauty to share around rites of passage and working through really difficult times. I love her work and am honoured to be one of her student and to share her message. Here is some of what we talked about: 

    - What it means to be a Dís-ability Witch living with chronic illness 
    - Myth as healer
    - Living in ceremony in big and small ways 
    - Leaning into ancestral support and creative practices through difficult times
    - The magic of naming yourself 
    - Rites of passage as death transformations 

    Lara Veleda Vesta is an artist, author and educator transforming chronic illness into a path of healing and reclaiming. She is the author of The Moon Divas Guidebook and The Moon Divas Oracle Book, illustrator of The Moon Divas Oracle Cards and The Runes Revealed, and is currently working on two books exploring death transitions: Dark Goddess, a handwritten, interactive rite of passage guide, and Coven Invisible, a memoir in myth. She has a patron community supporting this work, and to thank them she offers rituals, circles, mentoring and other gifts. Lara also teaches classes by donation at The Wild Soul School, where explorations include folk magic, ancestral connection, self-initiation and ritual practice.
