In The Moon Den ~ April News

This Newsletter was sent on March 18th 2024


Greetings Friends, 

It’s been many, many moons since I’ve shared a newsletter like this, and truth be told, I’m not sure whether I’ve been purposefully ruminating or simply procrastinating.


A bit of both perhaps.

In March of 2023, I had one of those “enough is enough” moments. Juggling certain things, that in reality needed my full attention, was simply not working. Since then, I’ve felt the expected pulls of failure. Not to mention I have the occasional existential crisis more often than not. But I’m not here to over explain. Some really wonderful things transpired this last year.

I’ve been reworking my offerings, redesigning my website, reflecting on my intentions, and reviewing my long term goals. What I learned these last 12 months was something I knew all along. I suppose I just needed to give myself the space to remember. I felt it the first time I really sat and stared at the night sky, and when I took a deep breath amongst other yoga practitioners for the first time in 2005. I felt it the first time I poured soy wax into a glass vessel in 2015, and while writing this letter to you, I can still feel it now. What is (Mike Patton voice) IT ? It’s that I’m striving to create meaning. This is why you will never hear me say things like "you NEED this candle in your life!” Because, it’s up to you to make that decision, not me. This is why I spend an absurd amount of time curating playlists for every kind of moment & mood. It’s why I feel the pull of the mystical. It’s why I am who I am.

In one way or another, we’re all in pursuit of meaning. My hope is that what I create & offer can provide a bit of inspiration & comfort. More than anything else, I'd like you to see this digital space as a sanctuary of sorts. Being human is hard enough. Let the Moon Den be a quiet place for you to find solace & support, however often, or however rarely. Let's explore meaning, together.


For those who have made it to these final first words, I thank you for reading. The website is officially ready, less a few missing pages - but patience has really been the theme of the year, and I’m continuing to do what I can at a pace that makes sense for me. You’ll find Spring creations are available now; including Vernal Equinox, Luna, Dark Forest, & more. I’ll be sending a few more updates soon, but for now I just want to thank you for being part of this journey. It feels good to be sharing again.

Wishing you a Happy Equinox,

~ Alyssa
