My Zine: The Ocean is My Teacher

Title page from Kaitlyn Beugh's zine The Ocean is my Teacher. It has wavy black text, with a wave imprint as the image.

I made a zine! It took me about a month to put together but I've been unknowingly writing this book for years- as my survival guide. It came together quickly.

I feel ready to share some of the lessons I've learned from the ocean during this increasingly wild time. We all could use more grounding.

Wave imprints helped me reconnect to myself via connecting with the ocean. To her energy, and her powers. The ocean became my greatest teacher during one of the most challenging times of my life.

An excerpt from The Ocean is my Teacher, with black text overlaying a photo of the ocean. The text says: "Breather with the Waves"

The ocean taught me how to ground when being in my body felt the most unsafe. She taught me calm, and showed me the ebbs and flows of my experience through her waves. And now here I am, sharing what I've learned with you all in this 29 page book. My hope is that my words resonate with you in a way that inspires you to take action in your life towards healing in whatever ways you need at this time. To connect with nature, especially in the community you live in, and translate these practices I share in accordance with what you connect with. It could be the ocean, the lake, the river, the trees, the wind, the birds, the flowers- whatever. Whatever resonates with YOU.

Yes, these quiet works that I call Wave Imprints have been a major focus during the last 4 years of my practice, but inside this vessel of time and intention I've also learned ways of healing- of peeling back the layers of self that weren't truly me. Peeling back the labels I put on myself. Of finding ways of connecting with nature and self on a level that cannot be described solely with words. You can have this too. I've outlined these simple yet powerful practices to get you started in my book "The Ocean is my Teacher".

You can find it on: - Etsy for a PDF that shows up as I intended it to. Click here to find it. - or by donation of any kind (monetary sliding scale, services in kind, some sort of energetic exchange etc) and I will email the PDF to you.
