Fatigue can make it feel like we have the weight of the world on our shoulders, and it doesn’t always take into account how much we already carry. Exhaustion is political, social, economic, medical, spiritual, and more. Who is allowed to be tired, who gets tired, and who gets chronically tired are not coincidences, with the most marginalized and vulnerable often being the most impacted. Still, it is something that can impact almost anyone, not even massive wealth can protect from certain conditions (although obviously it helps access care and healing). While I am still tired, my fatigue has improved significantly from the spiritual and wellness tools that I have been gifted, have practiced, gathered, and experimented with for the last 20 years. By using energy work, spiritual healing, ancestral support, regulating the nervous system, and changing certain patterns I have been able to reduce my fatigue by more than half many days. Spirit has shown me techniques that are more effective than anything I have ever tried. While I cannot guarantee that this will work for you, everyone that I have worked with has been amazed by the results.
My name is Springlove, this name was given to me by Spirit, and it is these same guides that helped me “see” the wisdom that I will share in this series. I have navigated chronic fatigue for most of my life. I was born disabled, and contracted Lyme disease as a young teen where it harbored for over 15 years without treatment. With the few resources I had, I tried to approach my healing from the “alternative health world”, some things helped, but for the most part I still felt no relief. This all changed a few years ago as I began to answer the call by Spirit to practice Earth-Based Magic. After my two Soul Initiations, I understand that there is no separation between the sickness of my bodymind and the sickness of my spirit.
Part of this work is validating and acknowledging that chronic fatigue can be such an excruciating existence that many of us feel hopeless, I see you, in that non-sight way. I am not here to sugarcoat this experience, promote toxic positivity, or individualism. I am here to offer Access-Centered support, which means that an intersectional and trauma-informed framework will hold us and does its best to meet as many needs for as many people as possible.
My hope is that you will get even a tiny bit of relief, whatever that means for you, in a safe container. My hope is that, as we heal, we also heal the world. That, as we begin to find our purpose in the mucky waters of malaise, we find that energy that we need to support ourselves and others, not in the way we typically mean in capitalism. My hope is that we use this tiny spark and bring the winds of change so that it grows, what once may have been a dim candle becomes whatever you need or want it to be, perhaps the sun. Much love, Springlove.

Sliding Scale $150 – $400+ (these rates are well below market rate for similar offerings) with Partial and Full Scholarship Options. You must either pay me or contact me via email before the class begins in order to be considered fully registered.
- I highly encourage people (especially white folks) who have financial access to pay as much as they can (perhaps more than $400) to help fund folks who do not have access.
- The only way that this model works successfully is when people give what they authentically can, remembering that we are all conditioned in a model of scarcity and that it is often uncomfortable to give in this framework. For people who cannot afford the sliding scale: I am offering scholarships to low income sick folks. Priority for Black and Indigenous, as an act of reparations, if wanted Please remember that Springlove is very low income and this is their life’s work.
- Please contact Springlove via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request a scholarship BRIEFLY explaining your situation.
Please submit your payments electronically via Venmo or PayPal.
IMPORTANT!!! You must choose “pay friends” so that I don’t pay a fee to Venmo or Paypal, if you are not comfortable with this please contact me for another payment option as I am not willing to pay them.

About the Teacher:
Springlove (antiracist/antiZionist white Jewish, disabled/ill queer) is a psychic medium, diviner, and priestess that began practicing movement, magic, and meditation over 20 years ago to manage their chronic pain and complex PTSD. They found, however, that most offerings were not accessible for their needs. With the support of Disability Justice activists, they created Access-Centered Movement and the AC Framework in 2016: a trauma-informed and intersectional framework that attempts to dismantle hierarchies of bodies and minds in movement spaces. Springlove is a registered Yoga teacher and personal trainer, and uses their vast knowledge of yoga therapy, dance, Pilates, Feldenkrais, Somatics, Vipassana meditation, Earth-Based Magic, and their lived experience as a sick and disabled queer survivor to offer support for those suffering from trauma and physical/emotional pain. Aware that the ancestors of some of the spiritual traditions they practice are not their own, they are committed to decolonizing their practice under the leadership of Indigenous elders. They currently reside with their cat, Hawthorn, in the Pacific Northwest in Chinook Territory. They offer monthly rent to the Chinook Tribe to pay for the land they occupy as a settler.
