Goddess(they/them/theirs) is the Proud MoMo of Sun Seed Community; a platform for the practice of collective healing. The intention of SSC is to feel into and sit with emotional, mental, and physical trauma while acknowledging whiteness, cis-heteronormativity, and patriarchy through their podcast, consulting, body/energy sessions, workshops, and group and individual container building. Creating Goddess’ tools of liberation took a whole community of support and they hope their village's stories can resonate with others.
They graduated from the Healing Arts Institute of Massage in October of 2018 and continue to explore therapeutic and spiritual practices while teaching workshops internationally and practicing body and energy work.
You can usually find them in the "pagan" section of the bookstore, sitting in the back of a concert, caressing crystals at your local metaphysical shop, or binge-watching old sci-fi movies while cooking.
