And it's December! The last month of the year naturally brings up lots of reflection on all that's happened, and all that we still want to create. What a delicious time!

As I think about all that 2018 brought us, there are two sayings that come to mind - "Grow through what you go through," and "If you're not going through something, you're not going anywhere." Every year brings its challenges, aka opportunities for growth. One thing I've been trying lately is expanding my energy into a situation or feeling that is uncomfortable. Usually when something feels bad or unfamiliar, we have a tendency to contract in some way out of fear or anxiety. Make ourselves harder, smaller, resistant; steeling ourselves to withstand the threat. It's a natural response, a well-worn one that we automatically slip into. But as we know, the more we are in resistance to something, the more it persists. Contracting is defensive and does us a disservice. The opposite of that, of course, is expansion. I don't mean puffing out your chest and taking up space, or trying to appear or be bigger in some way. Again those are defense mechanisms that are borne from a place of fear, not embodiment. I feel into my solar plexus, the place of personal power, and breathe into it. I bring myself back into my body, opting out of the fear/worry loops that keep me disconnected. I see/imagine my energy gently expanding and radiating from this place as golden light. Golden light is an extremely high vibration that clears out any lower vibrations trying to run the show. And I allow my energy field to be as big as it needs to be. Fill the room. Fill the building. Fill the city, state, whatever! Any fear, anger, or sadness I feel around whatever is happening is no match for this. Expansion = growth. Growing through what you go through. Try it :)

This season may bring overwhelm, with its many events, parties, and celebrations, feelings about the past year, and goals and intentions for the new year. It's soooo easy to get caught up in all we "have" to do. I started feeling it on Dec. 1st! But really it's all okay. All of these things are good things, but like cake, you can't eat the whole thing at once. Pacing oneself, and savoring, is key. So even though I have a lot going on (see below for this month's offerings!), I'm taking it one step at a time. And I hope to see you at one of the things I'm doing this month!!

Honestly I am just grateful. I say that a lot, but it's true. It's been an amazing year of breathwork circles, collaborations, events, readings, and private sessions. I have had the privilege of working with so many (literally hundreds) talented, authentic, and inspiring people and it's been such an honor. If you've come to one of my workshops or circles, or bought something from my Apothecary, or trusted me with a 1:1 session, or hosted me in your space, or read any of these newsletters, thank you. Thank you, and I love you.

See you in 2019...!

Upcoming Workshops & Events
Breathwork for the Holidays/End of 2018

Wednesday, Dec. 5th
7:00pm | MINKA brooklyn

This is an opportunity to get in some powerful healing and release before the madness of the holidays – at a sliding scale rate.

We will use the ancient pranayama breath technique to heal ourselves from the stuck emotions, unprocessed grief and pain held in our bodies. This makes space for clarity, new understandings and awarenesses so that we can move forward in an empowered, embodied state.

Since the holidays bring a lot of activity, and often means gathering with family, I will share some powerful energy/empath protection techniques this month -- The ‘holiday blues’ don’t have to be a thing anymore.

A lot happened this year and it is important to give ourselves the space and time to feel and clear our emotions around it all. So whatever you’ve been dealing or working with, bring it to the circle for release. We’re all in this together and we are waiting for you

Winter Solstice Full Moon Activation

Friday, Dec. 21st
8:00pm | The Alchemist's Kitchen

The Winter Solstice is a celebration of Light and the rebirth of the Sun. Marked by the shortest day of the year with the longest night, Winter Solstice has been celebrated in cultures the world over for thousands of years. This year, coupled with the Full Moon in Taurus, brings a powerful portal of activation and change upon the Earth.

We will heal and cleanse our bodies with a Violet Flame healing - a powerful tool that transmutes any negative thought or belief system into a higher consciousness and releases anything in our energy field that is not of our highest good. As we open into expanded awareness, we will flow into a DNA activation, supporting a multidimensional consciousness, our natural state. We will then honor the new solar year with a candle magic light ceremony, and integrate our intentions and desires with singing bowls.

You will leave with your own ceremonial candle, new tools and skills for healing, and a higher vibration!

What others are saying...

"Working with Jordan was extremely monumental in my growth here in NYC. She is a true healer, capable of understanding the depths of both past and present emotional trauma. Her nonjudgmental approach to our sessions was incredibly comforting and tailored to my individual needs. The reiki and breathwork were significant in releasing old, unwanted beliefs about myself. I could feel strong shifts in my body and mind during and after every time we met. Her flower essences are also very powerful and played a great role in my healing process. I highly recommend working with Jordan both short and long term. I'm grateful for our work together and to have such a wonderful person in my life." - E.T.

“After just one consultation with Jordan, I felt an immediate sense of relief, as well as a renewed sense of purpose. I was struggling to address some underlying issues that were interfering with my ability to move forward in my creative process. With utmost grace, she holds a safe space for dreamers to reflect on the obstacles that prevent them from stepping up to the plate so that their highest expression can be made manifest. She also provides practical tools and resources to ground your visions so that they are not lost floating in the ethers. I was most impressed by her response to my questions pertaining to social justice, equality, inclusivity, and being of service to others while creating a healing based business. She is the real deal. Do yourself a favor and experience some of her magic and wisdom. ” - M.P.
