YOUR WISE ANIMAL BODY
This stylish, colourful, yet simply designed 37 card deck gently helps you get back in touch with your nervous system.
Living in a late-stage capitalist, colonialist, information age is exhausting to the nervous system, the adrenals and the entire hypothalamic-pituitary axis - aka our precious, wonderful, magnificent, miraculous animal bodies.
Unfortunately, many of us don't know what homeostasis feels like, or it has been long forgotten. Our nervous systems are primed, caught in a fight / flight / freeze / fawn response (or a wild combination of all four). This can lead to:
~hyper-reactivity / hyper-vigilance
~the inability to relax
~ decreased 'window of tolerance' (our ability to handle stressors)
~ chronic illness / infection
~ anxiety and depression
...sound familiar? Well, me too. So I wanted to bring a tool to life that could be a lovely supplementary gift to a budding, or already established, nervous system health practice.
This deck is accompanied by a thorough, supportive guidebook that takes you through the meaning of each card, a set of Wise Body TasksTM as well as suggestions, questions and mantras to help usher in healthier, calmer more grounded somatic habits into your life.
It also comes with a beautiful hardcover prompt journal which has daily questions for you to explore based on nervous system triggers, how you feel from the morning through night, so that you may better get to know your patterns and habits. It works in tandem with this deck, or any tarot or oracle deck of your choosing.
This deck makes a perfect gift for anyone in this day and age, but is also well-suited to any therapist, somatic practitioner, yoga studio, healing centre, or school.
Our bodies are so wise and know what they need to relax, heal and rejuvenate. It is up to us to listen and practice.

The popular IG hashtag that I began in 2017 now has a permanent home! In Musings On The Path, I explore topics such as autism, ADHD, shadow work, grief, love, relationships, Kundalini, intergenerational trauma - and much more. Exclusive discounts and my best articles are shared to paid subscribers, but there is a good deal of free content.
Do you suspect that you may be autistic? Have you recently self-identified or received an autism diagnosis and are feeling lost? In these one-on-one support sessions, we can discuss anything you'd like in regards to autistic traits, a life on the spectrum, embracing an autistic identity, masking and unmasking, burnout, ableism and discrimination, special interests, self-care and more.
You direct the session. You may also ask me questions, but bear in mind that the time will be mostly focused on you.
This is a one-on-one session. Please only book in for yourself.
Please note: I am not a certified therapist. I am a late-diagnosed autistic woman who has dedicated her career over the last two years to autism education, advocacy and research as well as somatic nervous system healing practices.
I've observed that there is a rather dire need for peer-to-peer support in our community, as for the most part it is sorely lacking in traditional therapeutic models - and autism is still so greatly misunderstood in modern psychology.
I am setting myself up as a bridge.
