THE MOON STORM SESSIONS * FREE TOOLS BELOW
In under two years the Moon Storm Community created over 200 new initiatives, documentaries, philanthropical partnerships, collectives, companies, courses, publications, retreats and gatherings. In addition to 100% of Moon Storm Sessions proceeds, over $500,000 was raised by Moon Storm Alumni for environmental initiatives, cultural preservation, and social justice. Inspired by an afternoon’s work with Tad Hargrave and Alex Baisley, we offered architecture for conscious creative legacies thru the arts of non-competitive expansion, cross-pollination, unreasonable generosity and solidarity-based community building.
The Moon Storm Sessions curriculum was based in the direct matrilineal teachings of my family *Babaylan, generations of clairvoyant, creative healing women holding Filipino ways to access the Eternal thru:
- Goodness in Community Generosity
- Truth found in Daily Spiritual Practice, and
- Beauty that comes thru Art and Nature/Scientific Exploration.
Many of my personal elders, teachers and mentors came thru this work, and I’d like to share them below, as well. The Moon Storm Sessions are now complete. Here's a handful of resources for CI members to take into your Heart Work. You are also invited to share your ways thru Amulet, the Field Guide for Living Wise. Below you'll find a shower of Moon Storm Alumni Projects to inspire your Path and expand the circle of your family. Each of them holds a gleaming, distinct promise to Earth and community, and a school of wisdom from their own Blessed Village. If you would like to work with me directly, we can do that here.

*“Philippine indigenous communities recognize Babaylan as a woman who has the ability to mediate with the spirit world, has her own spirit guides, and is given gifts of healing, foretelling, and insight. She may also have knowledge of healing therapies such as hilot, arbularyo. She is a ritualist, a chanter, diviner. She has the gift of traveling to the spirit world or non-ordinary states of reality in order to mediate with the spirits.
Babaylans carried out their work in the spirit of revolution against colonization, their belief in Sacred Wholeness, their love of mother country, the desire to serve their communities in achieving justice and peace.”
-Center for Babaylan Studies
