guiding you towards balance

equinox

was formed October 15, 2020. equinox envisions a world where all life exists in compassion, equity, connection, and sovereignty. the mission of equinox is to guide people into balance following the perfect example of natural cycles.

equinox values

compassion. i meet each person where they are, with tenderness and care.

equity. i recognize and champion each person's lived experience.

connection. i nurture each person's sense of safety, security, and belonging.

sovereignty. i honor the power and strength of each person's authentic self.

equinox commits to

acknowledging traditional land. equinox’s physical spaces are located in reno, nevada, on the unceded land of the numu and washeshu people. before the european invasion, the people lived harmoniously, migrating strategically in cycles with the seasons, for thousands of years. the people continue to inhabit and manage these lands. i extend my appreciation for the opportunity to live, work, and grow on their territory and to learn from their example and experience. you may read more about the people at rsic.org, as well as many other sources.

justice. i endeavor to use whatever power and privilege i have to support people without it. i fight against anyone or anything that strives to do the opposite.

equity. in an effort to bring balance to our community, i use all donations to offer discounted reiki sessions to those identifying as under resourced.

diversity and inclusivity. i listen to all voices and perspectives and require them in all spaces.
