I’m not sure if this is a farewell post or a “let’s connect in real life” request.
I have started a new business, which may interest those of you that have been reading my posts forever. Cedar and Loom (http://Cedarandloom.com) is my coming home. I have long been an herbalist, an intuitive, and a spiritual healer through the grace of Creator and my many amazing mentors across the past decades. My daughter owns our last apothecary, White Wolf Medicine, because it only supports one person full time, she lives in the area where we started, and because she deserves to work as a medicine woman with all of her gifts.
I am now in southern Colorado, and love it. I have clients that come to the door, and word of mouth is spreading about what I do. I love what I do. So, Cedar and Loom, “Effective Plant Medicines, Prayer Shawls, and Healing Art” is now my new venture incorporating ceremonies, 78 different medicines and topicals, and my weaving and other art. I plan to do farmer’s markets and shows that I can find and I have plans to open a new store front in Pueblo or Fremont County. My website is up and running and it will have a shop function in a month or so.
The more I look at social media, I realize a few things: I have had successful businesses before the event of social media. My clients are all people I have met in person, not through social media. The censorship, lack of privacy, and selling us out does tend to bother me quite a bit as well. 2020 reasserted the desire for me to go backwards in time to a place where community and real communication and relationships are priority. The addiction of certain platforms bothers me more than anything. I have tried in vain before to escape the grasp of facebook.
Along with social media, this blog, I feel, has run its course (far more times than it probably should have!) and I will not be paying the renewal fees to keep it going this year. It is quite expensive, and frankly, I think I have written about everything twice! So, if you feel you would like to keep in touch with me in real life, please check out my website, write down my email, and keep in touch. 2021 is the year for real connection and friendships, new beginnings, and a meaningful, joyful life. I wish you all good things, my friends!
