catastrophe: an interlude

Catastrophe: an InterludeOctober 131st/February 14, 2024 ♥️ Valentine’s Day. I have so much to say. A whole lot of defending and explaining and clarifying.

what do you value?

How do we make decisions unless we have a strong sense of what we value? We are always either moving toward or away from our values with every action we take. It can be hard to tell which direction we’re moving, unless we know what the principles are we stand on and for. Creating a list […]

how to take a journey

a Moon Walk on Water Indigenous Shamans have long taken journeys to access healing and protection for their communities. These journeys are usually performed on behalf of and in service to others. They are soul excursions to non-ordinary reality. With honor and respect for the depth of training and initiation required of indigenous Shamans, I call it simply journey, following […]
