soul labor, tarot, and vulva cupcakes



This is my year of rooting deeper. Inveterasco. A mantra. A prayer. A wish.

For some time now, I have been searching for new ways in. To somehow extract the work and stories that are deep in my belly, still under the layers aching to be told. I can feel them pushing for the surface.

"where the spirit meets the bone."

Always. And so I am thinking about amplitude... the maximum extent of a vibration....how to reach deeper into myself and further out to you.

Yes.

The signs of soul labor are all around me, in my notebooks, all over my studio, in the conversations I am finally having out-loud, that I am about to expand into a brand new layer and birth yet another conception. It feels like bravery and clarity and velocity and passion and fear, all rolled into one. That's how I know it's time, that I am ready.

Come with me! I want to connect in wild new ways. This is, above all, about togetherness.

There are always surprises, but here is what I know is coming into being for you and I in 2016.... (it's going to be so good!)



A new website. It has been on the burner simmering for a few seasons, and I am finally in the process of getting ready to serve it up! I've struggled with the idea of biggering, wanting to avoid taking on more virtual space than I truly need, as it was wonderful to come back to online simplicity two years ago when I left wishtudio.com and went back to Blogger shedding a lot of administrative weight. I want to be really mindful with expansion and realize I don't need uber fancy in order to be happy and successfully functional. In fact, that is not my jam at all. So the new changes will be more of a visual re-alignment, a gorgeous redecorating and reorganization of mindytsonas.org to encompass my current mojo and where my work is going. Look for changes to roll out over the next few weeks. Yippee!

Studiofemme. The call to hold more in-person space has been on my radar since last year, and with so many Brunches under my belt I feel ready to finally offer the experience that is most meaningful to my work. It's going to be bold and beautiful and life-changing, an in-person, out loud, luxe creative conversation and celebration around intimacy, unlike any other. Look for the first event in February! For details coming very soon, hop onto my mailing list over here. This is the work I know I am meant to be doing.

#exploringyoursexy. This work will be stepping into the spotlight, this year. I am ready. We have set the foundation through our exchanges inside Life Unabashed, by diving deeper in our Real Sex talks, and by acknowledging as a community that these conversations are so necessary and needed. So I have planned for you a sexy interview series called Making Love, an online workshop for you to name and claim your sexual values and desires, as well as all the wild mischief we'll be making inside Studiofemme. This is an invitation to explore your sexy! We are are soooo going there this year. Like, for realz.

Wishcraft. My Inner Alchemy Cards are going on an adventure this year. After almost 8 incredible rounds of soulful card making and inner exploration, like all things, the process wants to evolve. I am listening, and in the next go-round we will be creating our own tarot inspired deck in seasons aligned with the Wheel of the Year and its elements represented as cups and wands and pentacles and swords. It will be a way to learn, to find deeper understanding and connection to the tarot and our our true hearts, in a wildly personal way. I am seriously over the moon excited!



I am channeling in loads of togetherness, new opportunities for lush discovery and intimate connection inside brave sacred circles filled with disco ball sparkle, laughter (so much laughter!) and stories of freedom and truth.

And yes, there will be vulva cupcakes.

Here we go, 2016.

Inner Alchemy Cards: Build A New World Deck

Our next make-your-own card adventure is finally here! Inner Alchemy Collage: Build A New World Deck (online) is an artful exploration of language, learning, inspiration, and collaboration, that delves into important ideas around activism and systems of oppression. This is a way for us to examine and disrupt harmful dominant narratives, tell new stories, and inspire one another to use our creativity and personal power to help build the collective world we all want to live in! In the end you will have a beautiful and meaningful handmade deck of 35 oracle cards to use as unique a tool for guidance and reflection whenever you need it.  I'm your host,  Mindy Tsonas Choi , an artist, organizer, radical belonging activist, and the founder of the Be Seen Project - a grassroots initiative resourcing BIPOC artist and makers working in activism. Join me along with other stellar artists, makers and co-creators who have also been exploring social justice and activism as part of their creativ

The Cost of Selling Belonging

As someone who use to sell belonging and believed I was creating something universally magical , I now have fresh eyes on the harm that I once caused. I understand what can (and was) incredibly healing and impactful for some, was at the same time excluding, marginalizing and undervaluing others. First, to anyone who ever felt like they did not belong to anything I created because they were unable to afford it or felt like they did not have the social capitol to join -  I am sincerely sorry for not seeing you sooner .   To our entire creative community as a whole, I urge us all to think about belonging in new and equitable ways, and to do the work of dismantling these hierarchical structures that leave so many people out of the circle. We all deserve to have access to creativity and belonging, and I'd go so far as to say both are fundamental basic human needs and rights. Selling belonging can look like... Creating spaces and experiences that can only be accessed by buying in at one,

Welcome to Rebel House

REBEL House is a place for radical art and co-creation where we practice Radicle Belonging as activism. This is the next iteration of my public (free) Patreon , and how I am building, connecting, igniting and activating. Welcome and deep gratitude for being a part of this communal living, dreaming, doing space and helping to create it! This is a collective belonging space, an initiative, and a movement house. It's where Radicle Belonging is praxis work for generative practices and disruption through connection - intentional and actionable. We are people coming together with a common goal: to use our creative visionary force to more impactfully belong to ourselves and one another. Your presence is always what is most valued.  We are doing togetherness differently here. What REBEL House is NOT: A space that values like-mindedness over active inclusivity. Sameness in belonging is only dividing us further. Pay to play. Anyone can be a part of this movement house by simply showing up
