Well, it's spring. It doesn't feel like it, but it is. Seeds have been planted, in the garden and in our minds. There's lots of creation happening in our world right now and we can't wait to share our new ideas with everyone. But in the meantime, we recognize that there is always a need to slow down, take time for ourselves, and be humble.
To help maintain that sense of humility, as well as keep our egos in check, we try to remember that as smart and talented as we think we are, there is always someone who knows more than us. We must not forget to look to those people for inspiration and education. We must constantly be learning.
For that reason, we have signed up for an educational series on tarot reading at Dark Moon Tarot as well as an 8-month apprenticeship and seasonal class series at Milk & Honey Herbs. Below you will find the bios of the amazing women that we will be shadowing. We are over the moon to be receiving all that these lovely ladies can offer.
