guiding you through grief, loss, and new life
New Moon December

New Moon December

Every New Moon is a chance to set an intention, make a wish in the dark and orient to manifestation at the Full Moon. We can Seed and Harvest each month, bring our inner and lives together.

As we approach the darkest day and the return of the Sun’s light and warmth on December 21, we are in the velvety rich double dark.

My intention is to rebirth my healing practice, to listen and respond to what Deep River Healing wants to be in this coming year. (Maybe you have some ideas for me to run small groups again?)

Since 2000, my healing practice has gone through many iterations. 2017 has been a quiet year, especially the second half. I can feel that restorative time feeding a new desire for serving others with my gifts.

Part of that intention is returning to regular outreach with blog entries on the New Moon and Full Moon; an inspirational meme every week; and the monthly newsletter. With all that, I hope to keep a steady current of connection with you.
