Petrichor: /ˈpɛtrʌɪkɔ / n
1. The scent of rain on dry earth. From the Greek: Petros–stone–and ichor–blood of the gods.
2. The online home of Alana Brekelmans: a storyteller, yoga teacher, and anthropologist who spends her days thinking about narrative, embodiment, and weather events.
Sometimes sharing stories can be like drawing blood from a stone. This is especially true when it’s your story, a story that’s embodied, or a story about that which is deeply meaningful.
But stories are also just as nourishing as that other blood drawn from stone: like rain after a dry period, stories can reawaken the spirit, promote growth, and connect.
