This week we’re excited to feature Tia Member, Cat Lantigua — Tia Member by day, founder of Goddess Council by night. Goddess Council is a community of goddesses (yuppp, you read that right!) who come together to build friendships & support each other through the ups & downs of adulthood.

I bring people together! Something that drives me is doing all that I can to make others feel like they’re accepted and not alone in life. As we navigate this world of digital connections and falsehoods many are struggling to find where they belong, this is where I come in! I create the spaces that welcome them.

Quite frankly, I started it because I was lonely. I’d just moved to NYC and had no friends to process this new lifestyle with and it was all starting to take a toll on my mental and physical health. Goddess Council was my attempt to attract new friendships into my life that were going to nourish my soul and it actually worked!

Yes! Community is KEY to our wellbeing. We aren’t designed to navigate the ups and downs of life alone. It’s just too much! We need support, guidance, and safety in order to feel safe enough to go out into the world with our cups full.

I can’t control as much as I thought I could and that its not necessarily a bad thing!

To me, this means being a woman who knows what she needs to be well and prioritizes providing it for herself. Whether it’s going to weekly talk therapy, going for a jog, getting your chakras aligned, or booking an appointment with the doctor-all of it is important. 2019 is the year of facing our realities and acknowledging the importance of true self-care.

Finding doctors that make me feel comfortable and like I’m being treated like a person, not a number.

Because I wanted to feel taken care of and safe! I want to look forward to learning more about my reproductive health and be in an environment where I can ask questions and leave feeling understood.

Health is all encompassing. I used to think that taking care of myself just looked one way but now that I’m older I’m realizing that to feel good (body, mind, and spirit) I need to broaden my support network and diversify my self-care habits!
