This image really resonates with me.
I pretty much have it on all of my social media headers right now because for a while there, I felt at a loss.
An explosive, mind busting loss that encompasses both grief and joy.
It has been a full summer.
It is quite the amazing fall.
My short synopsis is to bring you to speed and welcome you to the most current unfoldings of my life + work:
I AM A CERTIFIED HAND ANALYST!
I completed my Year Long Certification Training with the
International Institute of Hand Analysis.
I am double-legit-for-real now.
After more than 200 hands read + much learning I offer my deepest gratitude, celebration + joy to you courageous wonders who shared your hands with me, my incredible fellow students and my magnificent IIHA faculty.
Another landmark move. This time to my very own space which I lovingly call The Gladstone. It is equal parts tea salon, boudoir, quiet cave of discerning + mega dynamic art studio. Also: crucible, comfort + home.
Summer road trips for the soul.
A conscious endeavour to begin a third year of study, deepening my hand analysis skills with the Advanced Hand Analyst Certification.
Simultaneous pursuits that I am focussing my attention on: pushing my creative edge as an artist, cultivating my growth as a social entrepreneur and onward in creative service to make people's eyes sparkle in the most fun, magical way possible.
Mediums of choice = hand reading, conversation + doodles
I tore down the previous incarnations of my Joan Trinh Pham and The Renegade Courtesan (hand analysis) websites seeking simplification + integration.
This is the beginnings of me crafting my next skin.
It is a work in process.
( process > progress )
There is so much joy, magic + power in creation after a heady hibernation to dream + discern.
Now I am straight up applying the real life formula for magic:
Desire + Action = Power
My words of the year:
With conspiratory giggles in a room primed for expansion,
