THE INVITATION by Oriah Mountaindreamer
“It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.”
Allow me to introduce myself.
It actually does interest me what planets are squaring your moon. Or at least mine. Cause I believe in that shitake. A lot of the time. Planets. And moon phases. And Mercury Retrograde. And I make essential oil potions to deal w them. It helps w the process. Transition. Change. Shift.
I do want to know if you have touched your sorrow. All the way to the center. Go there. No. Try it. What’s stopped you. Besides fear? Yes, you have tried it? You get to keep trying.
I do want to know if you have been opened by life’s betrayals. It interests me to understand if you are open to the possibility of staying. Supporting. Having loyalty and faith.
I do want to know if you have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain. It interests me to understand if you are open to the possibility of blooming. Developing. Evolution.
Allow me to introduce myself a little mo. A lil mo of the nitty gritty about me.
I have worked mostly in the public schools helping kids, teachers, and parents navigate through challenges. While getting my masters in psychology, I got super into mindfulness and positive psychology, which lit my “I want to be a yoga teacher” fire. After yoga teacher training, I integrated yoga and mindfulness into my work and fell in love with sharing about the power of the breath, of being present, of releasing judgement and smiling.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 34, my world was rocked, and I struggled to find a community. Now building communities is my jam, as are dance parties, traveling, cooking, treading water, coloring, nature, hugs, and wearing my (fake) fur vest. (It’s basically like having a perma-hug.)
I offer healing services to women touched by breast cancer through yoga, love, (essential) oils, and laughter. I believe in healing my community, mind, body and heart beside you, with you.
My newest project is creating a Healing With Healers co-working space w Erica and Camille K. where Healers from all walks of life can gather to grow, connect, and take classes.

P.S. My love language is touch. So. 99.9% of the time I am available for a hug.
