Juniper (Juniperus) is an ancient Grandfather tree connected to the sun, the south and the element of fire. The oldest trees are over 3,000 years old, attesting to the deep wisdom in the medicine they offer. The years it requires for the berries to ripen teaches us to draw from experience, just as elders do. Juniper is energetically warming in the body and tends to move towards the lungs, the place where we often store grief. Like a grandfather, he holds us in a nurturing light as we process and clear grief, as well as other challenging emotions.
.
Trees often support us in grounding and finding our center as they grow upright. Juniper medicine is much different as the branches move and flow, twist and turn in different directions. This resembles Juniper’s unique ability to unwind what has become twisted within us so we can remember who we are. This process requires deep forgiveness, a virtue Juniper embodies well. Forgiveness is one of the deepest blessings we can offer ourselves and others. It frees us from the painful cycle of reliving hurt over and over again. It transforms guilt into peace, opens the door for compassion and moves us into resolve. Self forgiveness sparks the flame of faith in our readiness to move forward and do things differently.
.
Working with Juniper will help activate the light of forgiveness and send it to every dark corner within our being. .
Juniper helps us see life through the lense of peace, acceptance and trust. All life around us, all that happens presents an opportunity for growth and guidance. Everything is helping us, whether it seems to or not. Each day life grants the ability to find a lesson in the challenge or nourishment in the moment. The universe wants nothing more than for us to shine our brightest light. Life is on our side. Juniper holds space for this awareness to bloom within us, and assists us in integrating that perception into our way of life. This way of being not only supports us on emotion and spiritual levels, it nourishes our adrenal glands, nervous systems, aids in digestion and so much more.

Taurean’s FIRST ONLINE EVENT✨
.
I invite you to join me virtually this Wednesday night to integrate the energies of the New Moon, Spring Equinox, and this time of collective reflection + healing. Each of us is easing into a new way of being. This ceremony will be different, as I will be streaming from home. It has been of concern that I stay home during this time to protect others + myself, due to my challenges with autoimmunity. 🤍
It is my intention that as we connect despite distance, we create that same portal of lightlove we have been since coming together as one. This time, like lights on an electrical grid- we will be igniting our light one by one, connecting to each other. This light will shine out of our heart and crown, connecting to each of you choosing to come together at this time, thus channeling + opening the portal. 💫🤍💫
I will be offering my Energetic Aura Clearings utilizing distant reiki energy. RSVP will be important for this, so I can be sure to focus my intention on each soul present. We will move into our intention setting meditation, yoga nidra + sound bath as usual. I ask that during this time, you lay back, get cozy + turn the volume UP.
.
Headphones will work great, as well, however there is a chance of losing them. Keep a candle nearby, as we will use it at the end of ceremony. 🕯
.
Thank you all so much for your support and love during this time. It is those who show up for us during the hardest times that hold the DNA of our Soul Family. I see you. I love you. I thank you. With love + light, Taurean 🙏🏽🤍🕊✨🌚
.
Please RSVP with Taurean 💜Venmo: Taurean-333
To register for her event and receive instructions to take her class via Zoom! It’s super easy :)

Hello Dear Community! What a week right?!?
.
We thank you for your continued loyalty and support!
.
We wanted to reach out to our Totem Tribe. Our Community. Our friends and family, and tell you that we are with you. We see you. We feel you. We are all going through something that we have never collectively experienced before. And we are in this together.
.
We have made the decision from a place of love, compassion and awareness to close the physical studio through March 31st, with the possibility of extending that date out, as necessary. We will be paying attention to what is recommended, and are eager to come back to our physical sacred space together. However, we will be offering many classes and workshops via virtual portals soon. Please tell us what you need at this time. We welcome your feedback and want to be available as a safe resource for you.
.
We have been closely monitoring the guidance from the leading government and health authorities regarding COVID-19. The CDC and the WHO, along with all of the other local businesses that are making tough decisions to close their doors temporarily to flatten the infection curve of the virus. We truly need to keep our hospitals from getting overloaded, so that the people affected by the virus the most, can receive the care that they need. Each day, as you all know, we learn more and have to be flexible and adjust to these important changes.
.
During times like this, it is even more important to take care of your mental health. As you may know, stress and anxiety play a major role in general health as well as immune system function.
.
What are you learning about yourself and your learned responses during stress and crisis? Do you shut down or go into fight or flight? Perhaps you lose time getting lost in fear and paralysis? Please don’t judge anything about these responses and BE KIND to yourself. Anything you are feeling is appropriate and should be validated.
.
Yoga, sound healing, and meditation are tools to shift perspective. This is an important time to increase your meditation and relaxation practice. We will begin offering many options for guided meditations, yoga, and virtual community experiences.

Relaxation is a process whereby we observe ourselves letting go. When we bring our awareness to our breathing, the feeling sense of our body and our relationship to space and gravity, we allow relaxation to arise, releasing and unwinding patterns of holding, both postural and emotional.
.
In this two hour workshop, we will practice simple, restorative yoga poses to facilitate the process of relaxation. We will also examine the philosophical and physiological underpinnings that support and guide our practice
.
Adam has studied extensively with Judith Lassiter Ph.D. and has so much incredible wisdom to share with us!
