Connection & Belonging
Gifts born of the feeling that "We're in this together." When we feel this way we amplify and spread trust, full presence, whole-heartedness, and community. Spread feelings of being fully welcome here--in this place, across our differences. Made possible by receiving whole community and ancestor support or found-family and found-ancestor support: support in trusting our inner voices, trusting the land and plants and animals around us, and trusting human neighbors too. Items in this family make great gifts for long-time friends, for those currently struggling with trusting themselves/others, and as surprise gifts for those in your community who haven't received much support and who therefore trust almost no one, including themselves.
Helpers in this family: anyone who feels like part of our community and wants to contribute--be they trees, plants, people, animals, or places. Right now the plants and trees are Whidbey motherwort, mugwort, lemon verbena, western red cedar, Douglas fir, stinging nettles, lavender, spearmint, peppermint, catmint, hops, lemon balm, calendula, wild roses, and lilacs. And west coast oranges and lemons.
