Tarot hikes, #writergoals and a virtual book club
Here's what I'm up to this month (and how we can work together)
One more newsletter from me today!
This one’s a shortie, but it has some fun updates about what’s ahead for me this fall:
“Class Reunion: The Podcast” is chugging along, with new episodes dropping each week featuring interviews with me and my high school classmates about how our weird little small town experience did and did not prepare us for “the real world.” You can become a Patron of that project at patreon.com/classreunionpodcast.
My tarot practice is growing to include a couple of Meetup groups! The first is a virtual book club starting on Oct. 27 with a (socially distanced) meet up at BookPeople on Oct. 16. We’re reading “Emergent Strategy” by Adrienne Maree Brown. One of my all-time, most-transformative books.
The second Meetup group is called Tarot + Hiking with Don’t Fear the Death Card, where I’ll be leading four hikes this fall at four different creeks around Austin. During each hike, we’ll talk about tarot basics and how to incorporate nature into your practice (and vice versa). The first hike is Sept. 19 on Barton Creek! (We’ll be heading to a swimming hole, as long as the water is in good shape.)
My #writergoals include publishing in Texas Monthly, Texas Highways and a few other new-to-me publications, so I’ll keep you posted on where you can read my work elsewhere.
My #businessgoals are to book three ancestral healing clients. Yes, I’m starting 1:1 coaching work around healing our family trees. What does that mean? My life changed forever when I started learning more about my ancestors, imagining what their lives were like and how my family came to be the way it is. Even all those food stories I wrote about my family’s recipes — that’s a form of ancestral healing work. And now, I want to help other people sort through their own ancestral healing work through a weekly coaching practice. I’m so excited to work with people who are already feeling that tug of transformation. That desire to turn toward the grief in an effort to get to the growth. Those Ancestry DNA kits only get us so far, you know?
Might one of those ancestral healing clients be you?
Transformation happens slow until it happens fast. We can do it on our own, or we can turn to helpers along the way.
If you’re even remotely curious enough to learn more about this ancestry work, snag some time on my coaching calendar for a consult and we can talk about it.
Thanks for riding with me on this wave!
