We love your instagram what inspires your content and what message are you looking to share with your followers?
I share what I know, what I need to know or learn, and messages from spirit. I love offering my incredible followers resources, affirmations, musings, and honest snapshots from my life.
Super inspirational, thanks for filling our feed with such beautiful content. If you could have dinner with any person living or departed who would it be and what would you eat?
It would be my Grandmother Eleonor, and I’d make her stuffed cabbage, a traditional Polish dish she would often make me.
That sounds beautiful, What’s your favorite go to ritual for Full and New moons?
There’s too many to name; and also, it depends on what I am working on during a lunation cycle. If you are familiar with my work, you know I do not work with lunar energy in a compartmentalized way; I work with each lunation holistically if I am in deep collaboration with her.
We do love how complex and deep your work with the Moon is! Tell us what does intersectional feminism and art mean to you?
Well they both mean different things. Intersectional feminism is the basis of what I strive to do and who I strive to be: non hierarchical, interested in the decentralization of power and resource, invested in complexity and nuance, as well as seeing the totality of persons, systems, and situations. Intersectional feminism also suggests that we are creating new paradigms, and different frameworks than what is most often available to us. It is actually a very lunar philosophy, for me, they overlap quite a bit. Art saved my life, so it feels spiritual to me.
We love that message and are in full support and growth alongside you! Final Question, Whats the greatest lesson 2020 has taught you?
There is often a large gap between who people think or say they are and who they actually are, there is much importance in the quality of honesty and grace one can give themselves, we and we alone get to decide what healing means for us, and we will go extinct and take precious flora and fauna down with us if we do not address healing ourselves and the planet and take urgent actions around said matters.
Thank you Sarah, it has been an honor. Check out her products with us here and be on the lookout for her new book at The Alchemist’s Kitchen 2021! In the meantime check out her amazing Podcast links here: Spotify, Apple, SimpleCast.
