On paper (screen?) I come across as a new age, burner, hippie type, and I suppose I am in some ways, but having been born and raised in NYC I am required by law to have a sense of humor about myself. In short, I have become everything I used to make fun of...and pretty happy about it.
I seem to land somewhere between hippie and punk rock...
I have a spiritual practice but couldn't give you a name for it, just feel deeply connected to spirit and to my ancestors. It's an important part of who I am.
It's not important for you to be walking the same path I am, but please be walking a path of some sort. Maybe it's meditation, or self inquiry, or self exploration through art, music, movement...I tend to be attracted to those who have worked their way through some hard times and come out the other side a little wiser for it.
"This magnificent refuge is inside you.
Enter. Shatter the darkness that shrouds the doorway…
Be bold. Be humble.
Put away the incense and forget
the incantations they taught you.
Ask no permission from the authorities.
Close your eyes and follow your breath
to the still place that leads to the
invisible path that leads you home."
~ St. Theresa of Avila
Part of my work is helping people connect with the wisdom of their ancestors through divination. It can be potent, exciting, and fun. I love what I do!
I'm teaching myself how to play the ukulele!
Also singing more, writing more, and arting more...Moar!
I am inspired by life and am always learning about myself.
When I'm not out trying to save the world you'll find me tearing it up on the dance floor...it's my therapy and I start to get a little funny if I go to long with out it.
Creating magical altars and spaces
My height, or lack there of?
I can be kind of a movie geek...I love old movies (see above), cheesy as well as good sci-fi/fantasy, Jim Jarmusch, Terry Gilliam, prefer dark or smart comedies to slapstick ...unless we're talking Marx Brothers, I can also appreciate big blockbusters with lots of explosions. I hated Forest Gump and am not afraid to say it.
I read a lot and tend to have a few books going at once. I like a good balance of fiction and non-fiction. Been digging the Game of Thrones series, am currently reading The Bone Clocks - David Mitchell, The Genius Myth - Michael Meade
What little tv I watch comes through the computer...Game of Thrones, Sense8, and Peaky Blinders mostly.
Amon Tobin, Bonobo, Tipper, Ajja, Dj Krush, Ishq, Chet Faker, The Polish Ambassador, Lulacruza, Ibeyi, Woody Guthrie, Elvis Costello, Gogol Bordello, Fugazi, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, Tom Waits, Tycho, Tourist, Beastie Boys, Yo La Tengo, Dinosaur Jr., Low, Dirty Three, Tribe Called Quest, David Bowie, Burial, Jolie Holland, X, Neko Case, Alexi Murdoch, Patti Smith, BDP, LTJ Bukem....

Umm, if you don't have anything listed under the music category, I seriously don't care what it is...as long as it's something you are passionate about and that moves you in some way, I will probably skip over your profile. Yup.
I am gluten free, it's an allergy not a lifestyle choice. I miss beer.
A really good book
I spend a lot of time in self reflection. In order to be of better service to those who come to see me in my practice, I have to clear out my own dark corners. Some call this shadow work. Not as gruesome as it sounds but it is hard work, something I'm not afraid of.
The vibrational frequency of Love and it's power to heal and transform.
Pretty much what the rest of y'all do!
You are passionate about life and at the same time don't take it all so dang seriously..
You value clear, honest communication..
You're an unconventional weirdo.
You are willing to see me for who I am, not who you would like me to be..
You can get with this ;) : http://markmanson.net/fuck-yes/
You want to give me a ukulele lesson!
You have something to say beyond "Hello"
