Kayla is pleased to have published two new books as well as launching a daily mini meditation site that hosts podcasts, videos, and original artwork.
Rambling Rose October News
I hope this email finds you well. So much has changed in this last year it felt worth while to put together a newsletter. Don't worry, you won't be getting a lot of spam from me!
The last seven months have seen huge changes, certainly for me and my practice. Since the lock-down started last March, I'm no longer able to do sessions in my house due to the risk of COVID-19. I had to drop my class in Cranio-Sacral Balancing and stopped volunteering the Marine Sanctuary Center as they are closed.
Luckily I qualified for the SBA loan and was able to buy a new computer, upgrade my astrology software, and start offering Zoom sessions. I have been taking online courses through Cabrillo College, including certifications in Meditation and Stress Management.
I have also been restructuring my business to be more accessible and user friendly by creating a mini mindfulness page with daily affirmations, poems, and excerpts from my new book (see details below).
As always I am a part of your team, if you'd simply like to chat, text, or connect online. I wish you and your family the best for the upcoming season, and we are all already looking forward to a better 2021!
A few years ago I set the intention to put out one thousand prayers in the form of poems, prayers and meditations, and thus the Temple of Laphrodite was born. A place to just take a moment to pause and reflect. Affirmations, poems, prayers, rituals, sometimes just an image, a time for you to cultivate your own lightheartedness. Come, sit for a spell or two. Some of what you'll find here:
One minute of silence in nature
Podcasts of poems, prayers, and prose
Original artwork - photography, oil pastels, and collage
Excerpts from my new book (see below)
And yes, occasional cat videos!
Different from a world of selfies and a constant barrage of images, these serene moments allow you to feel calm, peaceful, more tranquil and relaxed. Let the nature sounds bring you to the quiet inside. Or turn off the volume completely, enjoy your own moment of quiet contemplation. Put it on a loop and enjoy for as long as you like. Remember to breathe. Use them as writing prompts for your journal, to spark your own creativity, or to simply be present.
Now Available! Laphrodite's Guide to Mindful Menopause or The Adventures of a Baby Crone
An enchanting collection of midlife musings, moon magic, and meditations for mindful menopause.Over the last three years menopause has brought me to my knees. In this humbled position, I offer anecdotes, potential antidotes, and some not so common advice.
According to the Mayo Clinic, menopause is experienced by over 3 million women a year in the United States alone. What makes this book different is viewing menopause as a time of incredible spiritual growth and creativity, rather than just a physical experience that needs a special diet or more exercise.
The book offers concrete tools such as guided visualizations, meditations, and rituals to honor this significant passage in a woman's life. Rather than a dry reference book, it includes humorous stories, inspiring poetry, and juicy practices to experience mindful menopause.
