The Moon Times

a monthly letter released around the full moon
sharing thematic teachings, news and affirmations
to cultivate psycho-spiritual wellness and community

The theme of this moon cycle is
vulnerability = courage
self + trust + courageother


vulnerability as defined by Dr. Brene Brown:
uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure.


And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Anaïs Nin






















Questions to reflect on:
  • When do you feel most vulnerable?
    • In what situations?
    • With which emotions?
    • Of what parts of your self, your body, personality and identities?
  • What systemic influences might cause or exacerbate your vulnerability?
  • How is not being vulnerable serving you in a specific situation or with a specific person?
  • How is not being vulnerable stagnating you?
  • What benefits might come by being vulnerable?

Updates

New offerings on the site:
  •  "Being My own B.F.F." for Selkie Magazine from Edinburgh, Scotland is an article about the inspiration and inception of visual affirmations, and the value of asking ourselves the question, what do I long to hear right now?
     
  • Curating and adapting workshops for people and organizations that value self-development, wellness and conscious growth is one of my favorite things to do. Are you interested in bringing a customized workshop to your place of work or living? I'd love to collaborate with you!
     
  • Want to sit down together, connect, reflect on your power, purpose and unmet needs, create some art to explore the recesses of your conscious and subconscious mind, release some sh*t into the ether that doesn't serve you, perhaps with ritual and ceremony, and cultivate some intentions that give you life. There are currently 3 spaces available for 1 to 1 self-development consultation with Chetna at a sliding scale rate, email for more details.
