Meet Bianca, a writer. : "The amount of beauty you experience within relationships and the amount of beauty you witness around you is directly proportional to the amount of beauty you can access within you. The world is never going to reflect something that isn’t deeply a part of who you are. This isn’t a poetic attempt to explain beauty... it’s an honest attempt to relay the message that you are the Universe. 🌼 ” from @_biancajo #facesofjoan
This new moon in Sag, squared by a Mars/Neptune conjunction, brings forth challenges for us to meet. Will we allow ourselves to slip into our weakness and susceptibilities towards useless rage and distorted subjectivity? Could our Sagittarian characteristic of "wishful thinking" overcome our ability to think and act from our rooted self? Or shall we ground deeper into our courage and values to relay the epic power they embody and stand for what we believe in with grace? 👁 Perception is a theme we are exploring this month. We have reached the necessity, rather the urgency, to clarify our perception of reality beyond our immediate emotional response. Our wounds are bound to be activated while our traumas are resting on the surface. The superpower of perception is our armor of choice in order to navigate the end of this year with fluidity and elegance. Perception that is rooted in the heart makes all the difference.
We are nearing the New Moon in Sagittarius, a wonderful time to make the most out of this final fertile moon soil of 2018. Our personal intentions are especially potent at this time of year, the darkest days of winter before the Solstice on the 21st. What are you creating, learning, healing, or transforming? We are hosting Sparc Circles in LA and Jackson Hole, to come together and share our intentions with each other. DM us to find out more about Sparc Circles in your area OR plan to get together with someone and speak your intentions out loud to each other. 🌿 If you are feeling bold, feel free to share one of your intentions in the comments below.
Don't compare the speed of your growth to anyone or anything around you. Embrace the pace and don't rush the outcome. Your story is never ending and you alone are in charge of it’s path.
What lies between the cracks? Kintsugi (金継ぎ) is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and the subsequent path of repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. Wouldn't it be amazing if all of our scars, the emotional and physical could be honored as part of what makes us who we are? If the work we do to repair what feels broken could then be celebrated? How would your life be different if this tradition in pottery were mirrored in our personal lives?
If self-love is saying "I care", self-care is saying "Prove it". Self-care is the process made by you, for you, to remind you just how much you love yourself. How are you practicing self-care this week? 📸 Anita Austvika

New Blog interview with Jasmine Hawken, founder of @hairprint and @oliomaestro. "We've all bought into an assumption. The assumption is that there is an "I-self" at the center of our life that is running the show and to whom experience is happening. But can you point to 'you'? Can you categorically find a self outside of thought?" - Jasmine Hawken | To read the full blog, click our link in bio.
When one sits in the Hoop of the People, one must be responsible, because all of Creation is related, and the hurt of one is the hurt of all, and the honor of one is the honor of all."- White Buffalo Calf Woman wisdom | Thanksgiving is a holiday that represents different experiences for different cultures. To make the most of this day, we use it as a reminder to be present, grateful and connect with the people we love. Tag a friend below you are grateful for, let them know you are thankful for them.
