What’s New!

Ocean Defenders:

Moon-to-Moon Daily Practise!

Want to join us?

This is a free offering for anyone who would like to explore a bit of daily devotion to the ocean, reconnect with play and wonder, and cultivate their gifts ~ all within a community of fellow ocean lovers.


A 31-day practise starting on the Sept. New Moon (Sept. 7th) and culminating on the following New Moon Oct. 7th. Participants should be able to set aside a chunk of 15-20 minutes per day throughout the month. The month will take on an arc, beginning with practises to situate ourselves and set intentions, then moving through fun explorations and play, and finally, offering the space to define and celebrate our gifts in relation to ocean stewardship.

“Access” to the ocean is not required although being close to an ocean spot for at least some of the days would greatly enrich the experience.

The daily practise ‘snippet’ will be accessible in online form (private facebook group or by email) each night before. Meditations, writing, creative practises, breathing, playful movement, creature connection, embodiment, dips or swims, observation and journaling are some of the things you can expect!

My hope is that this practise enlivens us and enhances our work as stewards and advocates for ocean protection.

Thanks for reading!
