Hey there! If you stumbled here in search of healing I hope you find it. Whether it's literally "here" with me and one my healing practices, from catching a fleeting reflection of another little queer unicorn in the distant interwebs, or because this spot has been a helpful hub to connect you into healing closer to where you are, who your are, or what you need.
Below are some resources that I really appreciate for one reason or another. They aren't one size fits all, not many things are. It is certainly not a complete list. I imagine it will always be a work in progress. I can't reasonably take responsibility for every bit of information. Be a conscious consumer, in this day and age that in itself is revolutionary... and healing. Know of something that you think others frequenting this spot might also find beneficial? Please, feel free to send it my way!
