The FAMSS of my Family
“Women united in close circles can awaken the wisdom in each other’s hearts.” 
- from the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers

In my blog this month, I wrote a
little bit about my trip back east last month. The catalyst for the blog post, about noticing how my family embodies the FAMSS of Nia, was being with these five generations of women. From my 17 month old niece to my 96 year old grandmother, each little Latina family member awakened wisdom in my heart and food for my soul. That's a photo of me and my mom to the right. I kinda tower over her but she's still the boss of me. And yes, it was bitterly cold. The kind of cold that makes you use expletives! You can read the blog post here.

In other news, Spring is in the air!
All around us here in Seattle, things are blooming. I love nature's reminders to open, unfold, yawn, rise up, seek the light, and bask in your own beauty. It's a wonderful lesson after a dark winter. And don't forget to change your clocks this weekend. Daylight savings begins on Sunday, March 8. 

This weekend, I am headed to
Clackamas, OR for the first annual NW Tarot Symposium! I am super excited to learn and mingle with my tarot mentors and peers. I was apparently the first person to register for the conference. Clearly, I was excited about it :). I'll be sure to tell you all about it when I return. 

Irene Minkina will be subbing for me on Saturday, March 7th at 11am at The Dance Space and Sunday, March 8th at 10:30a at Balance Studio. *I will be teaching tomorrow (Thursday), Friday morning and will be back late Sunday evening.
